Adventure holidays with a difference.

If you’re looking for something adventurous and possibly even a little wacky to do on holiday but need some inspiration, why not visit a new search engine, www.pocketvillage.com, recently chosen as website of the week by the Daily Mail. If you fancy diving with sharks in some far flung place, a ghost tour somewhere spooky, or sea kayaking in Turkey, just log on and pocketville.com will offer you a number of options.

The website brings together 11,000 unusual tours and activities plus information on accommodation offered by various adventure travel providers, reports the Daily Mail, so they do the hard work for you.

It’s fun to use too. Click on the 'inspire me' tool and you can put together a pictorial postcard of the kind of destination and activity you want. If you click on 'what', up pop lists that include everything from surfing to safari lodges. You can then fine tune by entering destination, duration and price. If you click on 'where', you get a list of countries and can then limit your options by place within that country, and by duration and price.

You get a good choice of tours and activities. For example, enter Turkey and you’ll get 316 suggestions, from gulet cruises to an underground tour of Cappadocia and sea kayaking. Click on your choice and you get and easy-to-read summary of the trip, together with a link to the provider's website.

So if you’re looking to do something out of the ordinary this summer, log on now and see what pocketvillage.com can come up with.
