We love holidays. There’s nothing like experiencing new places, new climes and new cultures. That’s why we devote so much time to finding the best places on earth. But sometimes, the place just isn’t enough. Sometimes, you need to add a little adventure, too. If you want to spice up your holiday, here are a few ideas on how you can do so.


Road trip

A road trip really can be the best kind of holiday. If you’ve got family and friends, it’s a way of exploring together and making memories. Even if you go on your own, it can bring a whole new feeling of serenity and freedom to the thing. There are a lot of great locations fitted for road trips. The US. Europe. India. If you have a destination in mind but no locked-down plan, try going on a journey all your own.


Take to the skies

It requires a deal more planning, but in its own way, flying can feel just as free. There are some real beautiful vistas in the world, but the sad fact is that most of us see them in the same way as others. Find the available flight routes for that gorgeous destination you’ve always wanted to see. Then take yourself above it and cherish the memory of seeing it from a whole new vantage.

Dive under the sea

If you’re going to a place with beautiful seas, you owe it to yourself to experience them. To most this means something like a day on the beach, water sports or even taking a boat out. However, if you’re in a tropical climate, you owe it to yourself to take yourself scuba diving. The majesty of seeing schools of multi-coloured fish or exploring coral reefs can only really be fully experienced this way.


Dive into the sky

Does adventure mean exhilaration and adrenaline for you? Then skydiving and bungee jumping in some of the world’s most beautiful locations should do it. Not for the faint of heart, finding yourself a great bridge to jump from is one of the most heart-racing things you can do on holiday. Just make sure that whoever you arrange it with is fully qualified and lacking any doubts. You don’t want to take any risks with this.

On your feet

Sometimes, an adventure needs to feel like a simple, easy adventure. No frills, no vehicles. Just you and the land you want to explore. There are all kinds of hiking trails and places you can go where a guide will help you discover the beauty of your destination. However, one of the experiences I can most readily recommend is going on a self-guided trip. Certain routes can be traversed all by yourself and these can be the most precious of them all.


Adventure can mean a lot of things. Exciting activities. New perspectives on locations making them doubly as beautiful. Even taking the time to use your feet to get around. Whatever your kind adventure is, make sure your holiday makes time for it.
