If you fancy a bit of excitement during your next holiday rather than spending most of your time at the beach, there are a host of different activities you can do that are sure to get the heart racing and the blood pumping. You don’t have to be on an activity or adventure holiday to experience some amazing rushes of adrenaline. Here are 3 amazing holiday activities that are certain to give you an adrenaline rush.
Whale watching in Tenerife
The Canary Islands are the perfect location for whale watching. The fabulous warm weather off the coast of Morocco, together with the depth of the Pacific Ocean, attracts whales and dolphins alike. The best thing is that it’s something you can do all year round. Costa Adeje, off the southern coast of Tenerife, is home to an array of different species, and there are many different ways to see them. Many companies arrange regular group boat trips or, if you prefer something more personal, you can hire sailing or motorboats and take to the water. If you love whales then whale watching in Tenerife is a must, particularly if you want to see them than in their natural habitat. It’s sure to give you an adrenalin rush you will remember for a very long time.
Zip lining in St Lucia
If you have never been zip lining, then it’s something you should most certainly try. Flying through the air will make you feel on the top of the world and is far less dangerous than some of the more extreme sports like sky diving or base jumping. St Lucia is an ideal location to try zip lining due to the truly spectacular rainforest views that you will encounter as you manoeuvre your way through the treetops. You will be provided with full training as to how to work the ropes and then set off across man-made bridges and climbing nets to take to the skies. If the zip lines don’t get your adrenaline going, the panoramic views of the stunning forest and natural landscapes certain will.
Bungee jumping in New Zealand
Bungee jumping is most certainly not the for faint-hearted. If you don’t know what it involves, you are harnessed to a bungee cord, which is effectively a really big elastic band. You then jump off of a high bridge and very quickly plummet towards the water below. There are a few different ways to jump, some scarier than others. You can face forward or backward and be harnessed around your middle or, if you are looking for a huge rush of adrenaline, you can choose to go head first instead! One of the best places to experience bungee jumping is the country in which it was first created – New Zealand. One of the best is AJ Hackett Bungy situated in Queenstown in the south-west of New Zealand’s South Island and guarantees some spectacular views before you take the plunge!
