We’ve always said we’re here to support every active lifestyle, which means keeping you fuelled whether you’re a spin class fanatic, avid triathlete or if you prefer something a little wilder! So, this post is for all you adrenaline junkies out there; it’s the ultimate list of adventures you need to start ticking off and contains the best places in the world to find the rush you're looking for…
Tandem paragliding with a qualified instructor is a great entry level into adrenaline junkie territory. Less frightening than jumping straight off a cliff but will still give you an epic high and some great views.
For a real adventure, head to Nepal and paraglide over the world’s tallest mountains in Pokhara Valley – it’s definitely once in a lifetime, bucket list material!
For something closer to home, there are some great spots in the Yorkshire Dales where you can soak in views of the beautiful British countryside – check out Active Edge for the best in the business.
It’s safe to say that if you’re an adrenaline fiend, you need to get New Zealand on your bucket list, stat. The Nevis in Queenstown New Zealand is known to be one of the best bungees in the world and is the tallest in the country - sitting at 134 meters above the Nevis River. Jumpers can go as fast as 128 km per hour…
It’s a cliché, but for good reason – there’s nothing that quite compares to hurling yourself out a plane with only a parachute to save you! One of our top recommendations would be Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand, but for the ultimate experience, head to Belize. You'll skydive over the Blue Hole in Belize, before donning your scuba gear and exploring the tropical reef underwater.
One of our favourite destinations for epic climbs? California of course. As well as world-class beaches, endless sunshine and awesome coffee, there’s also a tonne of great places to climb, from Gibraltar Rock in Santa Barbara to El Capitan in the beautiful Yosemite.
If dicing with death is your kind of kick, biking “death road” in Bolivia is probably going to be the adventure for you. The road is officially known as the North Yungas Road and has coined its nickname thanks to the thousands of people who die on it every day – thought to be about 2-300 people per month! You can expect dizzying heights, epic views and a hair-raising drop too.
If you read last week’s blogpost, you’ll know you won’t find much better white water rafting than on the Colorado river, with a view of the Grand Canyon. But for those wanting to take on an even more terrifying challenge, the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe has a 24km stretch containing 23 Grace IV and V rapids, with delightful names such as the “Gnashing Jaws of Death” - what else could you want from a holiday?
