Do you like adrenaline-fuelled holidays packed with pulsating activities that set your hear racing and get your synapses sizzling?
Once you take one edgy holiday, it is tough to go back to a humdrum beach break the next year, which means that you are continually challenged to come up with something exciting and vibrant for your annual vacation.
If you are this type of holiday thrill-seeker and you are struggling for inspiration for next year, do not fear because we have spent hours trawling the depths of the internet to bring you three action adventures to bolster your Bucket List — let us get stuck in!
- Ballooning in Bristol
Bristol in England is arguably the world capital for hot air balloons, and it holds a famous festival every year when these creatively coloured orbs float high in the air across the city and over the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
If you have a head for heights you can try ballooning for yourself and it is ideal for an alternative romantic date — indeed, many a mid-air wedding proposal has been made in the basket of a hot air balloon, but it is a long way down if you do not get the answer you want!
Tip: hot air gurus Bristol Balloons can arrange a safe but spectacular flight for you.
- Scuba Diving at the Great Barrier Reef
Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is one of the wonders of the natural world. Covering 2,300km off the coast of Queensland and accessible from the nearest town, Port Douglas, it is teeming with sea life of all types, from turtles and whales to sea cucumbers and corals.
This UNESCO World Heritage Centre reveals a dynamic different dimension under the sea and taking part in an organized scuba diving session here is a once in a lifetime privilege you simply can not pass up — responsible tour guides will take you to parts of the reef where you can dive freely without damaging the fragile ecosystem.
Tip: talk to diving experts Reef Trip about your Great Barrier Reef scuba experience.
- Snowboarding in the French Alps
What could be more fun than getting up every morning in the French Alps, throwing on your winter gear and heading off to carve up pristine powdered slopes on your snowboard?
At resorts like Avoriaz, Chamonix, Tignes, Belle Plagne and Arc 1800, you can enjoy on and off-piste snowboarding, a selection of freestyle snow parks and awesome après-ski every evening where you can mix and mingle with locals and visitors, as well as bonding with your friends and family members. If you yearn for freedom and a break from your regular routine, snowboarding in the French Alps takes some beating.
