Vacation time is when one gets to unwind and really relax. Disconnect from the vagaries of everyday life. But vacations are also the perfect opportunity to try a new sport. Perhaps a sport that you couldn’t do in your home town or city. Here are 5 adventure sports to try on your next vacation.
Kayaking may be a suitable option for those who are water-shy. Participants can take part in a number of sea kayaking trips. The trips are usually taken in the mornings or evenings before the sun gets up too high and the temperature gets too hot.
Kayaking is great because children over 10 can take part. You only need a moderate level of fitness, so there is no need to dread the adventure if you sometimes miss the gym. Sometimes, kayak rental centers will use inflatable kayaks which are a lot easier to transport to and from the water. We are sure that everyone will enjoy this event. The fact that the activity includes marine life will appeal to adults and children alike.
If you are on holiday by the coast, don’t forget to venture out into the ocean and try surfing. As you cruise through the waves while flicking your hair back, you are faced with blue skies, warm weather, and you are on a surfboard.
To get your bearings as a beginner surfer, it is recommended to take some surf lessons. It can take an entire day to complete this adventure. Take sunblock, an umbrella, and a picnic basket to indulge in some munchies after hitting the surf.
When it comes to activities that allow you to have an aerial view over the landscape below, abseiling is a great choice. There are very few situations where you can boisterously throw yourself off a cliff while still having a blast. Abseiling off Table Mountain in Cape Town is a true bucket list recommendation.
All ages can participate in this activity. It’s for people who seek a rush of adrenaline coursing through their veins. Those who love being in the driver’s seat. Turning around corners, hearing tires screech, inhaling exhaust fumes, while burning rubber, and ultimately coming in first. Go karting is the ulimate adrenaline rush.
Going to an escape room
Going to an Escape Room combines mental strength and ingenuity along with teamwork. A troubling combination of skills that can easily make or break friendships. Teams are required to solve puzzles and riddles. The objective is to escape the room within the set time, and hopefully maintain your friendships after the intense hour-long ordeal is over.
An age old sport deriving from the European alps. The concept is that you sit on your sled and slide downhill. What makes this highly enthralling is that the course is winding which increases the velocity and makes the ride very exhilarating. It’s easier to do than skiing which requires better balance and agility.
In many cases, it is hard to stop being a couch potato during the holidays, because there is a sense that one has earned the right to laze around and catch up on household chores and television series, but dare to do more and make memories. By trying your hand at any of these adventure sports your life will change for the better.
