an adventure holiday might be an ideal getaway
If your idea of a great break isn’t lounging on the beach or sitting by a pool all day, an adventure holiday might be the ideal getaway. With plenty of things to do and high-octane activities available, you needn’t assume that all holidays must be relaxing!
If you’re into extreme sports or if you want to try something new, you may want to consider booking an adventure holiday in one of the following locations:
Wildlife Explorations in Spain
When it comes to adventure, there’s nothing more daring than getting up close and personal with the local wildlife. Located in just two regions of the world, the Iberian Lynx can be spotted in national parks in Seville and Andalusia. With other species of wildlife roaming the parks too, there’s plenty to see during your stay.
Kayaking in Estonia
With an unspoilt coastline and picturesque views, Estonia is an increasingly popular choice for tourists and holidaymakers. The numerous islands surrounding the coast means that kayaking is a popular way to explore the area. Whilst sea kayaking may not be for the faint-hearted, it will certainly get your adrenaline pumping!
If you’re keen to get away from the hustle and bustle of holiday resorts, you may even want to take part in a group excursion. Under guidance, you can kayak to remote isles situated of the coast of Estonia and set up camp amidst the ruins of watchtowers and abandoned houses.
Go Canyoning in Corsica
Although many people travel to Corsica to take advantage of the beautiful beaches and high temperatures, dedicated canyoning trips are ideal for intrepid travelers. With over 50 summits in the area, you can take part in hiking excursions and abseiling activities. Whilst the infamous GR20 hiking trail may only attract serious hikers, there are plenty of trails suitable for beginners as well.
Diving in Iceland
The unique landscape of Iceland means you can experience a trip unlike anything you’ve ever done before. Whilst there are numerous opportunities to trek and climb in the country, there are also locations where diving is the sport of choice.
In fact, diving between the North American and Eurasian plates and experiencing the world underneath might be the ideal way to recover from a day hiking over rough terrain and lava.
Mountaineering in the Alps
If you’re not looking for sun, sea and sand, then ice climbing in the Swiss Alps might be the ideal destination for you! Sleeping in huts and carrying your supplies with you whilst you navigate the peaks means that you’ll need some experience before you embark on a fully-fledged adventure, but there are options for less experienced climbers too.
A week’s course in the Swiss Alps, for example, can provide you with the climbing skills you’ll need to embark on a more challenging peak next time. Rest assured – a beginner’s ice climbing trip in the Swiss Alps will still be as adrenaline inducing as the more hazardous routes!
With numerous adventure holiday locations throughout Europe and further afield, you don’t need to go far to get the chance to take part in extreme sports or explore unchartered territory.
