Warm holiday destinations in winter - find your perfect fitness holiday

After summer is before winter. Maybe you’re like us and you’re already thinking about winter with dread – wet, cold, dark – is there a worse combination?! For many people, the dark half of the year is not only a physical burden, it also affects the mind. The batteries are empty and we long for sun, warmth and relaxation.

With a sports trip in winter, you benefit in several ways: sports on holiday not only have the advantage that you stay fit. Sport also boosts your mood and, in combination with sun, warmth and beautiful nature, provides maximum energy and happiness hormones.

Imagine starting your day with a round of beach workout right outside your door. Then it’s off to the pool to cool off and chill in the sun. During the day, you hike to explore the stunning natural surroundings and end the day with a round of sunset yoga while it’s storming and snowing at home. How does that sound?

In this blog post, we’ll introduce you to some of the best destinations that not only offer you sun and relaxation, but also the best conditions for a perfect fitness holiday trip. From CrossFit under palm trees in Thailand to yoga, surf and fitness holidays in Morocco or a sports and wellness week in Tenerife – there’s something for everyone. Pack your trainers and flip-flops and join us on a trip to the sun!

Why a fitness holiday in winter?

Winter can often feel endless. Between grey skies, cold and little sunlight, many people find it difficult to maintain motivation for an active life. With most outdoor activities no longer as readily available due to the weather, sport and exercise often take a back seat. This is where the fitness holiday comes in – especially in winter.

Advantages of fitness holidays during winter time

1. Increase well-being: more than just physical fitness

Sport and exercise release endorphins, the so-called “happiness hormones”. They act like a natural antidepressant. Especially in winter, when many suffer from the widespread winter blues, sport can be an important mood booster. Not to forget: sporting activities in a group – be it CrossFit, beach workout or hiking – offer the opportunity for social interaction. Social contacts are often neglected, especially in winter. Yet they are essential for human well-being and can contribute to improving mental health.

2. Fill up on vitamin D: More than just sunbathing

Vitamin D is produced by our skin with the help of sunlight and is known as the “sun vitamin”. In the winter months, especially in northern latitudes, UV radiation is often so weak that the body’s production of vitamin D stalls. This can lead to a number of health problems, including a weakened immune system, fatigue and even depressive moods.

In sunny destinations, there is plenty of natural light and thus the opportunity to replenish vitamin D stores.

3. Strengthen immunity: Why exercise is so important in winter

The cold months are known to be peak season for colds, flu and other infections. Many people withdraw during this time and spend more time indoors, where viruses can be transmitted more easily. The immune system is also often weakened by the lack of sunlight and the cold temperatures. Sport promotes health, strengthens your cardiovascular and immune systems.

4. The combination of fitness and recreation: no progress without balance

Sporting activity is not only physically demanding, but also on a psychological level. After an intensive sports session, the body needs time to regenerate. These rest periods are necessary to build up muscles and prevent injuries. But everyday stress due to a job, obligations, deadlines, pressure to perform and other factors also cause a constantly high stress level in many people.

In a well-designed fitness holiday, fitness and recovery are therefore not seen as separate elements, but as synergistic components – like yin and yan. Recreational activities such as massages, yoga or wellness treatments help you to calm body and mind and recharge energy on all levels.

5. The allure of sunny destinations

Winter in sunny, warm destinations has its own unique charm. While the snow is melting to slush and water at home, you can lie on the beach in your swimming outfit and send selfies :-) Or surf. Or sweat during a beach workout. These contrasts make a sports trip in winter particularly appealing.

In short, a sunny destination in winter offers more than just pleasant temperatures and a nice tan. A winter fitness holiday is the perfect way to get away from it all, improve your physical and mental well-being and recharge your batteries for the coming year. In the next section, we present our top destinations for such fitness holidays.

Fitness Holiday Thailand

Warm holiday destinations in winter - our top recommendations


If you want to swap winter for a tropical paradise, Thailand should be at the top of your list. This exotic destination not only offers beautiful beaches and breathtaking nature, but also a variety of options for a fitness holiday that leaves nothing to be desired.

Weather and climate: Pleasantly warm temperatures & dry season
While it is cold and uncomfortable in Europe, Thailand usually enjoys pleasant temperatures and lots of sunshine. Winter in Thailand falls in the so-called dry season, which lasts from November to April. During these months you can expect little rain and warm temperatures between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius. The sea is pleasantly warm at 26-28 degrees and invites you to all kinds of water sports activities. While the humidity is often considered oppressive in the rainy season, it is much more pleasant in the dry season – perfect conditions for a fitness holiday.

Muay Thai & first-class fitness camps
One of the highlights in Thailand is certainly the training in Muay Thai, a traditional Thai martial art. Basically, there are many first-class fitness camps in fantastic natural surroundings with a wide variety of training.

Yoga and meditation
Thailand is also a Mecca for yoga enthusiasts. Whether on a remote island or in one of the many specialised resorts, yoga retreats in Thailand are an excellent way to bring body and mind into harmony.

Water sports
Thailand’s coasts are ideal for water sports such as diving, snorkelling, surfing and kayaking. The warm, clear waters and rich underwater world offer an unforgettable experience.

Hiking and trekking
For the adventurous, Thailand offers numerous hiking routes through jungles and mountains. The north of the country is known for its trekking tours to remote mountain villages.

Wellness and Spa
After a hard day’s training, there’s nothing better than relaxing in one of the country’s luxurious spas. Many resorts offer special sports massages and wellness treatments that are perfectly suited to the needs of athletes.

Nutrition: Healthy, fresh, exotic
Thai cuisine is not only delicious, but also healthy. With a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and lean protein, it is ideal for athletes. Many resorts also offer special diet plans and detox programmes.

Cultural diversity
In addition to the sporting opportunities, Thailand also offers a wealth of cultural activities. Temple visits, cooking classes or traditional dances can offer a nice change from the sporting programme and broaden your horizons.

With its combination of beautiful nature, diverse sports activities and first-class wellness offers, Thailand is a perfect destination for a fitness holiday in winter.

Morocco, located in the northwest of Africa, offers a particularly pleasant climate during the winter months. The country’s geographical location and topography make for an interesting mix of Mediterranean and desert climates.

Wellness and Spa
Moroccan hammams and wellness centres offer a variety of treatments perfect for relaxation and regeneration after an intense sporting activity.
