Do you crave adventure? Can't sit still on what is meant to be a relaxing holiday? Neither can I, so here are my top 5 holiday destinations you must travel to if you are looking for an action-packed experience.
Let your adrenaline pump as you explore some of the world's most beautiful and captivating places.
Number FIVE is for you cyclists!
This place is sure to earn you some bragging rights among the cycling community. Explore the alpine mountain with your cycling buddies because this is a sight everyone needs to see. Incredible mountains surrounding your journey with marathon runners joining alongside your ride. Escape the city life and experience the rugged countryside with cowboys working the land surrounding your thrill-packed ride.
Do you want to be surrounded by incredible views wherever you look? Well, this is the place to go! A beautiful haven packed with adventure activities including a zip-line high in the rainforest canopy where you will be greeted by the native toucans or scarlet macaw before making your descent towards the exquisite rainforest floor. This adventure is truly breathtaking. Stretching from the Caribbean Sea on Costa Rica's east to the Pacific Ocean, there are thousands of natural wonders to see, including the sighting of rare orchids, only seen in Costa Rica.
Escape the busy streets of Italy and take yourself on an incredible exploration through Italy's largest island, Lipari. This place is a hiker's paradise, with not only beautiful mountain cliffs but also a sulfuric stream, which has become a beautiful sight to take in, as the steam rises through the active volcanic craters of Stromboli and Vulcano. This hike truly is every adventurer's dream... giant mountains to climb, active craters and what's more is the incredible black-sand beach view as you trail the mountainside.
Situated on the north coast of Hawaii is the remote destination of the Waipo Valley. This place is an adventurer's sanctuary, spreading over 10km with thick jungle, freshwater streams, and giant waterfalls, Waipio Valley is also known as “The Valley of the Kings”. The on-trail hikes are incredible too but if you crave a little more than a jungle escape then the off-trail hike to the Hi'lwe falls is definitely for you. Why? the track is most certainly out of the ordinary with it encompassing multiple stream crossings along the way, sometimes through neck-deep waters. Eventually, you'll reach the base falls where you're likely to be one of the few to be there! It takes endurance but this journey is certainly worth the walk!
Last but certainly not least…This destination is the adventure capital of the world!
If extreme is what you're after, then this is the place to be! Queenstown is home of the world's largest free-standing bungee jump between two of New Zealand's tallest mountains. Or if you'd rather be looking at the gorgeous river system then we have you covered from all angles. Bungy jump head first into the river with the water spraying your face on the way down, or explore the crystal blue waters from below on a jet boat racing through the river channels. Going in the winter? Want something more thrilling than skiing the Remarkables double diamond black run? Heli-skiing is the perfect sport for you! Carve your own tracks and ski down the mountain edge taking in the incredible views along the way!
So what's the perfect accessory to accompany you throughout your journey?
