Many of us go on holiday in order to relax and unwind after a stressful time at work or home. Have you ever thought of stepping out of your comfort zone and releasing your pent up energy on an action packed holiday instead? Yes, you might need to go on a soothing spa day after your week of adventure, but it is good to start trying new things and seeing new places. Whether you’re a fan of the snow, sea or endangered species you could go on a holiday full of exciting escapades. One of these is bound to get you feeling courageous so take your pick.
Up In The Air
Head to the beautiful Serengeti in Africa and experience the wild animals in their natural habitats. Take a hot air balloon ride across the lands and bring out the daredevil inside of you, as you watch the animals roaming freely below you.
If you are feeling even more daring then why not head to the famous Lake Tahoe in Sierra Nevada? You can book a skydive across the serene lake and enjoy adventurous views from high in the sky.
Pop on your ski boots and helmet and head towards the dusty snow-capped mountains of the Three Valleys. Test your balancing skills and stamina with a day jam packed full of skiing adventures with crisp air and breathtaking views. Earn yourself a relaxing evening in the perfect Purple Ski luxury ski chalets and snuggle in front of the fire with a hot chocolate after a tiring day on the slopes.
If you have never been to the Galapagos Islands then be sure to add this to your bucket list. Water lovers can enjoy a day of scuba diving in the clear, deep oceans. Come face to face with both land and water mammals and treasure the memories forever.
Another way to enjoy the water would be a wild white water rafting ride in Idaho Mountain. Lochsa River will take you for a whirl across the choppy waters; hold on tight as you experience the dips and falls of the natural current. If you need expert help there is always a tour guide on hand to take you down the water and lend you a helping hand if you’re not confident in the water.
Hot or Cold
If you’re into extreme weather then you might want to head to a super warm or chilly destination. The Australian outback is scorching hot during their summer months, so make sure you are prepared for the heat if you head there. Check out the local wildlife and stunning range of National Parks. You won’t be stumped for things to do in the beautiful areas of Australia.
Perhaps you prefer the cold and want to get up close and personal with some of the world’s most beautiful snow creatures. Antarctica is a tiny island which offers vast icy views which span for miles ahead. Its extreme weather means getting there is a challenge in itself, so if you manage to make a successful trip you have already won!
Free your inner daredevil and experience some of nature’s most exciting parts of the world. Explore the sea, skydive out of a plane or ski swiftly down the snowy mountains, the choice is yours.
