5 Adventures You Want To Experience
No life should be just about your 9 to 5. And it shouldn’t be restricted to just family activities either. Your life is unique, and you should experience as much as you want to. But if you’re up for some active adventures then here are 5 of the best that you really won’t want to miss out on!
The thought of a life lived unplugged from the world around us is pretty scary. But that’s all part of the adventure! Would you dare to go camping without your phone or an internet hook up? Yes, it can be done, and yes, it is incredibly freeing. Just disconnect and hear the world around you. You will, of course, need some essential supplies. Get yourself over to a quality camping and hiking gear store to make sure you are equipped for the terrain, the weather, and the wildlife you’ll encounter. Don’t forget – look up at the stars without the light of your phone obstructing the view.
Hike A Terrain You’re Afraid Of
There are plenty of trails, paths, and terrain out there that frighten even the most seasoned hikers. It doesn’t matter which country you are in, you can find something to challenge every muscle in your body. Pick something you really want to overcome. Sometimes it can be fun to pick one of the most famous challenges so you can earn yourself some bragging rights! Don’t be too proud to train and rehearse first. You need every little advantage you can get.
Canoe or Kayak
If this isn’t something you do every day, then you are definitely missing out! Pick a vacation spot with plenty of waterways. Explore a coastline, or simply navigate a different lake every day. If you’re up for some adrenaline-pumping activity, then why not take to the rapids? Obviously go with a friend, and definitely take all of your safety gear with you. As with all of these other activities, a good level of physical fitness is essential.
Hiking in the night can be slow going and treacherous. But it also gives you a unique view of the world. You’ll see and hear far more wildlife, and the view of the stars will be better than anything you’ve ever seen. If you don’t know the paths well, go with a guide. It will help to ensure you’re getting close enough to everything you want to see in the diminished light. Be prepared for lots of stops to sit still and take in the night ambience.
If you don’t mind being really cold, then a snow trek might be just the adventure you’re looking for. Head to northern Europe for some of the best views and the best wildlife. Hear the wolves howling in their packs. See the Northern Lights dance across the sky. And make the most of all the different ways to navigate the snowy terrain! Snowshoes, skis, and snowmobiles make this one of the most fun adventure vacations you can take. What adventures do you want to experience?
