Vacations are often a time to indulge but you don’t have to go overboard to the point that you return home filled with regret and anxiety about ‘getting back on track’. A carefully planned vacation can mean a healthy balance between indulgence and self-care. A cruise or land excursion with Vantage Travel, for instance, offers up many ways to stay active so that you can feel less guilty when you do indulge in local cuisines and delicious desserts.

Here are five Vantage Travel itineraries with a focus on health, wellness and staying active:
