The Top 4 Extreme Sporting Holidays That You Must Try

Extreme sports have become ever more prevalent. What is more, an increasing number of people are trying their hands at the dangerous and extreme. After all, a holiday by the pool just doesn’t cut the mustard anymore. If you are keen to try something a little more extreme on your holiday this year, you are in for a treat. There are some brilliantly daring things that you can try your hand at.


Let’s take a look at the top four extreme sporting holidays that you must try this year:

  1.    Bungee Jumping in South Africa

Bungee jumping has something of mixed reviews. For many, it can be an exhilarating way to take in the vast mountain tops of South Africa, for others it can seem a little dangerous. In South Africa, there is a wealth of places that you can plummet from a mountain top. Soak in the scenery and take in the exquisite views of this beautiful part of the world. This is considered grade three in terms of extreme, so it’s mid-range when it comes to dangerous sports. Victoria Falls is the perfect place to do this. It’s just you and the birds for a few short minutes. What could be more special than that?

  1.    Water White Rafting in Wales

If you don’t want to travel too far this year, you can undertake extreme sporting ventures in Wales. Wales is home to the Valleys, and with this, comes the need for white water rafting. While the white water may only be graded at a level three out of seven, this is a great way to whet your appetite. The National Northern Centre in Wales is home to whitewater rafting for all abilities. What is more, you can take in the gorgeous Welsh countryside while you raft. Just pay attention when it comes to the drops!

  1.    Snowmobiling in Colorado

If you have something of a need for speed, then you are sure to enjoy snowmobiling in Colorado. This can be done at most ski resorts. This is akin to riding a jet ski on ice. It can be a little dangerous, but if you are sensible, you are sure to love this wintry adventure.  You need to make sure that you have the appropriate cover before you take to the ice. Extreme sports travel insurance is an absolute must before you embark on this wild ride.

  1.    Rock Climbing in Argentina

If you want to get fit and test your abilities, rock climbing in Argentina is the way to go. This will ensure that you come back from your holidays with a toned, taught middle. It’s far better than coming back with a beer gut! Imagine the feeling that you would get from finally getting to the top of the peak. You can take in the heights of the Argentinean countryside. The views, in short, are breathtaking. There are obvious dangers with rock climbing. But, if you travel with a group of experienced climbers, the danger will be lessened. Only embark on this kind of holiday as part of an organised tour. You shouldn’t attempt this kind of venture if you are a novice as this will be slightly too extreme.
