Fancy a summer holiday with a difference? Why not check out these adrenaline packed destinations to get your extreme adventure fix! With adventures for the faint-hearted to all-out thrill seekers alike, these destinations will offer you a trip you won’t forget…
Queenstown, New Zealand
Queenstown is a mecca for thrill seekers from all over the planet. Whether it’s tackling New Zealand’s highest bungee jump, chucking yourself out of a plane or hitting the slopes in winter – you are guaranteed to find adventure in this beautiful town.
Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Pull on your scuba gear and discover one of the natural wonders of the world.
Swim alongside sharks, manta rays and fish of all sizes and colours. You don’t even have to be PADI qualified, just take a hold of your guide and jump in!
If you fancy keeping dry, why not check out the AJ Hackett bungee jump in Cairns?
Lake District, United Kingdom
You could say that battling the weather in the Lake District is extreme enough. But you won’t be worrying about the traditional British drizzle as the Lake District offers you plenty of distractions.
Take your pick from Ghyll Scrambling (navigating your way up or down a gorge with plenty of obstacles to overcome on the way), Bog Snorkelling (yup, it’s what it says on the tin), abseiling, rock-climbing, mountain biking… The list goes on!
The Alps, Europe
Stretching across eight countries, the Alps are bound to offer an extreme adventure perfect for you. You can ski in Austria, glacier walk in France or try out canyoning in Italy to name but a few!
Don’t think that the Alps are just a winter destination, extreme adventures are to be had year-round.
Tara River, Montenegro
Montenegro is still relatively undiscovered as a tourist destination. The area is stunning and the best, and most extreme, way to take in the scenery is to go white water rafting down the Tara River.
Health and safety regulations here are lax to say the least, so just pop on a helmet, grab an oar and a friendly guide and don’t forget to hold on tight!
