There is more to life than jogging

Finding running or jogging dull as dishwater? Want something more challenging to keep you fit and healthy, perhaps a climb up a mountain with your own porters and tour guides could be the solution.

In recent years, trekking tours on the ice have gained popularity. The two standard tours are a "mini-trekking" option, consisting of a short walk of about an hour and a half, and a "big ice" version, which is usually about five hours.

 Tour companies generally provide crampons to customers. They start at about £1200 per person and are normally for a week or two. Here is an example of prices. For gentler but still healthier options perhaps a cruise might be a solution. Cruises have the benefits of swimming pools and gyms on the premises and can be a good way of incentivising yourself.
