Adventure holidays that deserve to make your bucket list

Of course, relaxing in a hot climate with some fine food and drink is a fantastic type of holiday to arrange, but sometimes there’s a need to step out of our comfort zone and embark on a more adventurous trip. That’s where adventure holidays come in, with this glorious planet of ours throwing up enough adventures to keep all kinds of thrill seekers firmly on their toes. 

Adventure holidays

Adventure holidays are exciting, they provide enough action-packed challenges to overcome and enjoy, and they can put both your physical and your mental strength to the test. While embarking on an adventure holiday isn’t necessarily everyone’s cup of tea, there are some obvious merits to booking an adventurous holiday. For example, some holidaymakers are chasing something a bit different, and some want to create memories by embarking on a unique vacation away that not many people have done before. Whatever the reason might be for you, let’s assess some adventure holiday options that deserve to make your bucket list.

Swim alongside endangered species in Australia

A trip down under is a great thing to do, but even more so if you’re looking to dive into the deep and swim alongside some of Australia’s most endangered species. This exact adventure can be explored in Western Australia, with Ningaloo Reef being home to 500 beautiful species of fish, along with some endangered species, such as hawksbill and loggerhead turtles. You might even see some humpback whales if you’re lucky, too.

Run the Great Wall Marathon

Great Wall of China

For any fitness enthusiasts who enjoy combining their holidays with an active physical adventure, participating in one of the most challenging marathons around might appeal. Visiting the Great Wall of China is fascinating in itself, but you could run a marathon that passes through the lower valley, too. A number of famous faces have done it over the years, so why can’t you, too?

Raft the Grand Canyon

Visiting the Grand Canyon is a common bucket list inclusion for many people, but not everyone thinks about rafting it. In fact, while most people opt for a view from above in a helicopter or by looking down on the world-famous rock from land, there are other holidaymakers who prefer to sample it from a fast-moving raft. Not only is it fun, but it will enable you to gain a totally different perspective of this iconic red rock from an alternative vantage point. Be sure to do your research, but there are a number of commercial trips worth booking.

A walking safari in Zimbabwe

On offer at Hwange National Park, a respected home for a number of animals, including lions, elephants, and rhinos, going on a walking safari is a surefire way of getting up close and personal with some of the wild’s most amazing creatures. There are many ways we can ‘virtually’ get close to animals: nature tv shows, animal photography books and magazines, video games, and even jungle-themed slot titles, but you can’t beat getting physically close to some of the planet’s most special species. Small guided walking tours certainly provide a memorable experience, particularly when compared to sitting in a Jeep and witnessing animals from a distance. Go one step further and get your walking boots on!

Paragliding over the Alps, anyone?


Sure, you could book a normal skiing holiday to the Alps, but that wouldn’t necessarily be as memorable as paragliding over it, would it? In fact, you can combine this extreme activity with a skiing trip, with paragliding options being on offer throughout the highest and most extensive mountain range system in Europe.
