As an adventurer, it’s safe to say that the typical holiday won’t always appeal to you. Whether you’re really into cliff diving or you just love to be out in nature, you may be looking for the kind of trip that gives you more than simply lounging on a beach for seven days. Sometimes, you need more excitement and a sense of adventure. So whether you’re looking to plan the trip of a lifetime, or you just want to do something a bit different, take a look at these five ideas that the adventurer in you is sure to love.
Round The World Trip
Firstly, we’ll start with the biggest tip of all. Embarking on a round the world trip isn’t something that you get to do every day. But, if it’s something that you’ve always wanted to do, then you should give it some serious thought and get planning. Heading to all corners of the world is the ultimate travel experience – and you can make it as adventurous as you like. Seeing different countries and cultures, enjoying limitless landscapes, and meeting new people is the best adventure to have.
A massive 75% of the Earth is water. Explore a completely new world and delve deep under the sea in a completely new kind of adventure. And you don’t have to be the most experienced in the area to enjoy it either. Yes, you’re going to want to get some practice in and work for your PADI certificates, but if you’ve always wanted to see the Great Barrier Reef or just get a feel for what it’s like under the surface, you can easily book on to a guided dive.
If you’re looking to get off the grid and try your hand at some real wild living, how about trying out some survival? You can pick up some cheap survival gear, pack up a small bag with necessary supplies and head out into the wilderness. From local woodlands to sparse lands overseas, you can make this as extreme as you like.
One of the best ways to travel is by bike. You can travel further and faster than on foot, yet still travel slowly enough to see everything on the route. Why no try strapping everything you need to your bike and wild camp along the way. You could try a coast to coast trip through Lancashire and Yorkshire or a tour along the Welsh border as a starter.
Finally, there’s always a hike to consider. From the Tour du Mont Blanc to Mount Kilimanjaro, there are so many incredible hiking trails in the world. You could even choose to stay closer to home and tackle the mountains of Snowdonia, the Wainwrights in the Lake District, or Scottish Munros.
