I am a real outdoor person. I love doing things that gives me a huge adrenaline boost like riding my motocross. So it’s not hard to figure out that I am a huge fan of other extreme sports as well and because of the diversity in the British landscape, there are millions of possibilities for a holiday filled with extreme sports. In the following weeks I will give you my holiday ideas for those who like living on the edge, starting with extreme sports in the air.
There are many ways to experience Britain from above. My own personal favourite is skydiving that I tried myself for the first time in July this year!
Try skydiving, while safely attached to your instructor. Target SkySports arranges skydives in North Lincolnshire for both beginners and advanced divers.
When paragliding, the “pilot” is suspended in a harness below the wings and in comparison to skydiving, the paraglider starts by foot, usually from a height. But a paraglider can also start from a flat surface or by being towed behind a vehicle. Try paragliding in beautiful Wales or check out our list of places to paraglide in the UK here.
If you want to experience some of Britain’s beautiful Castles or other attractions throughout the UK, but you’re tired of doing the old sightseeing bus routine, maybe a Helicopter Tour is something for you. If you’d rather try flying the helicopter yourself, Active-8 in Cornwall offers training flights.
Hot air ballooning
If you get a kick out of being on high altitudes, but maybe don’t like the speed, hot air ballooning is the perfect thing. The balloon moves in a slow pace and let you feel the freedom and serenity on high altitude and let you see beautiful parts of Britain from above at the same time.
Next week, I’ll guide you through the jungle of water sports that you can try in Britain!
