Celebrate London 2012 Olympics with an active caravan holiday in Devon
Olympic fever is sure to grip the nation in 2012 and those on caravan holidays in Devon will be in the perfect spot to celebrate.
Hundreds of events to mark the once-in-a-lifetime occasion are due to take place across the country, with a particularly interesting one scheduled for the south-west county.
From March 31st, Dartmoor National Park will host a week of sporting activities to emphasise the importance of sport just four months before the Games get underway in the capital.
Active Dartmoor Week will feature a vast array of sports, pursuits and fun activities, from mountain biking and rafting to pony treks and zip wires.
Visitors in the region for the seven-day period will be invited to partake in all of the events, which also include dancing and a bake-off.
Dartmoor Partnership, the official tourism body of the national park, is organising the celebration of sport and will work with the national park, local businesses and the Duchy of Cornwall to ensure it goes with a bang.
It is hoped that the event will be such a success that it can continue on an annual basis long into the future, potentially providing people with a reason to keep returning to their favourite Devon holiday park.
Bosses said that the prospect of competing at the Olympic Games are nothing but a dream for the majority of people, but Active Dartmoor Week provides an opportunity for everybody to get involved in their preferred pastime.
Perhaps the best news of all is that every activity will take place in the national park, giving participants the chance to also experience its beauty and natural wonder.
Those due to arrive in the West Country over the festive season have been told by VisitCornwall that the ice skating rink at the iconic Eden Project is one of the highlights of Christmas in the region this year.
