As overtourism threatens many destinations around the world, fitness-loving guests at Anantara Angkor Resort (Cambodia) can experience Angkor Wat without the hordes of tourists that visit each day thanks to the hotel’s Temple Running Experience (starting at $100 per person).

The experience includes two temple passes, a private tuk tuk, an energy drink, towels, water bottles, and a healthy breakfast basket. A fitness coach and temple guide can also be arranged for an additional cost. The program, which begins before dawn, is customized to each runner’s fitness level and preferences and can involve a combination of running and cycling or a trail run and a brisk walk. Participants are treated to a spectacular running track as they wind their way through Angkor Wat’s most significant sites with a personal tuk tuk support car guiding the way.

It’s a remarkable way to experience the jungle-clad temples without a soul in sight.
