Quad squad Visitors to Hamilton Island, in Australia's sun-drenched Whitsunday archipelago, can now explore the place by 360cc quad bike. Mixing environmental education with a heart-thumping ride, tours start with a safety briefing and a whiz around a training course to build confidence. Then it's off across beaches and forests and the 360-degree panorama of Resort Lookout. Riders must have a driver's licence and be more than 16 years old. Tours cost A$129 (HK$660) per person for an hour. Go to www.hamiltonisland.com.au for details. Pedal power In a rural community nestled in the foothills of Cambodia's Cardamom Mountains, former illegal loggers and poachers of endangered wildlife are being offered a new life - through mountain biking. Asia Adventures, in association with Wildlife Alliance, a non-government organisation, is working with the villagers of Chi Pat to run mountain-bike tours into some of the country's least-explored regions. The odd jungle elephant, mystical burial sites and bats snoozing in limestone caves will be potential highlights. Each tour (starting from US$195) takes three days and two nights.

Tension relief If you see someone doing the one-legged king pigeon yoga pose on your next Qatar Airways ( www.qatarairways.com ) flight, don't be surprised. In an effort to help passengers better endure the discomfort of flying, the airline has partnered with the Chopra Centre for Wellbeing and released a guide to healthy flying. Employing Ayurveda and yoga, the Fly Healthy, Fly Fit guide - in English and Arabic - is aimed at helping passengers feel more balanced and relaxed during long flights and features gentle stretches to encourage blood circulation, soothing self-massage instructions and step-by-step yoga positions to relieve tension. The guide is available for all passengers to take home. Green Africa United States-based Big Five Tours & Expeditions (www .bigfive.com) has teamed up with Sustainable Travel International (sustainabletravelinternational.org) to offer an eco-friendly safari in Kenya. STI president Brian Mullis will accompany visitors to game reserves where they will stay in community-operated eco-lodges. The aim is to protect natural habitats and wildlife from poachers while empowering local villagers. The companies will attempt to make the entire trip carbon neutral by calculating emissions related to accommodation and travel, and mitigating the impact through investment in carbon off-set projects in the region. The 12-day safari will depart from Nairobi on November 9 and will visit several award-winning projects, including Campi ya Kanzi, a Maasai-owned luxury eco-lodge; and self-help women's groups, such as the Kazuri Bead Collective, a cottage industry set up by single mothers. The deal costs US$8,550 per person, not including international airfares.
