The UK is home to beautiful scenery. So, with some of the best activities and adventures at your fingertips, it’s time to pack your Hatchbag boot-liner and embrace the great outdoors this 2017.
There are some things in life you have to try at least once and Zorbing is definitely one of those things.
If you’re not familiar with Zorbing, it’s basically where you’re strapped inside a giant inflatable ball with an equally unhinged partner. You’re then let loose down a hill and the ball will naturally roll and bounce at speeds of up to 30mph. You’ll be laughing and shouting with excitement all the way to the bottom!
There are numerous companies up and down the country such as Go Zorbing which have a great reputation.
If you’re looking for an adrenaline-fueled activity that is sure to leave you feeling hyped up for the rest of the week, it’s time you gave bungee jumping a try.
There’s not much else that will excite you more than a bungee jump from 160ft. If you’re feeling really adventurous then you could even try the highest bungee jump in the UK at 300ft. Surely that’s the ultimate experience for a thrill seeker?
With tandem or solo bungees available at numerous locations across the UK, start your bungee experience here.
Climbing outdoors can be one of the most exhilarating and satisfying forms of exercise, merging the gymnastics of indoor climbing with the wild and beautiful elements of the outdoors.
Climbing has numerous facets such as bouldering, sport climbing and traditional climbing to name a few. With so many styles to choose from, it’s not hard to see why so many people fall in love with the sport every year.
Walk the Offa’s Dyke
Following the English & Welsh border for over 177 miles alongside the 8th Century Offa’s Dyke trail, this stunning national trail takes you through changing landscapes, picturesque scenery and remote woodlands, allowing you to catch a view of Britain’s finest wildlife.
Walkers usually split this 177 -mile route up, with the three most popular sections being:
The Wye Valley
Pandy to Hay-on-Wye
Llangollen to Prestatyn
Whether you want to get fit, start racing or you’d just like to feel the benefits of getting from A – B powered by your own steam, cycling is the sport to try.
Whether you’re cycling solo, with friends or with the family, there are so many reasons to love being on two wheels.
Of course, the first step to take is getting hold of a bike. Once you have one, you can hit the open road with your helmet and Hi-Viz whenever you like.
