As the summertime quickly approaches, you need to put some time and effort into researching new activities so that you can rediscover your sense of adventure again. With this in mind, here are a handful of ideas to get you started along the way.

Motorcycle Tours

Imagine hopping onto a motorcycle and exploring one of the most beautiful parts of the world, Europe. If there is anything that is going to get your inner adventurer reignited this summer. Even if you’re brand new to bike riding, you will soon get used to the feeling of winding through the historic streets, experiencing the calmness of the countryside and relishing in the buzz of the city. It’s something you may not have considered before so try touring Europe by motorcycle and you won’t be disappointed. From Portugal to Greece, there is so much history to discover and plenty of delicious food to try whilst you’re out on your travels too!

Swim With Sharks

Delve into the deep blue ocean and come face to face with great whites in their natural habitat. Swimming with sharks is bound to get your heart pumping, and it will be an experience you can talk about for years to come. Some of the best hot spots for deep sea diving with sharks include Jamaica or Cancun in Mexico.

Climb Mountains

It may take some prior training, but climbing a landmark mountain with a friend or solo could be one of the best things you do this summer. As well as hiking a famous trail or climbing a well-known mountain, you could also use this to experience a beautiful part of the world too. Whether you’re trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania or hiking up Mont Blanc in France, there are so many beautiful peaks for you to experience for yourself.

Run a Marathon

Another active, yet rewarding experience to reignite your adventurous side would be completing a half marathon. Whether you’re planning on getting stuck into the Maui Half marathon in Hawaii, or the famous Peniche in Portugal, a run in the sun is a surefire way to challenge yourself and make incredible memories at the same time.

Try a Skydive

Skydiving has got to be one of the most popular ways to experience an adventure and give yourself a huge thrill. Visiting the Grand Canyon in the USA or Rottnest Island in Australia will give you a couple of the best skydiving experiences you could ever imagine. Of course, if you don’t want to travel too far away from your home country, you can always check out local skydiving options near where you live. 

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Enjoying a hot air balloon ride is a truly spectacular way to see the world and tick off a huge adventure from your bucket list. Imagine soaring high in a hot air balloon and experiencing some of the most breathtaking parts of the world with a loved one or a friend. You could see  Serengeti National Park in Tanzania from way up high, or Napa Valley in California from hundreds of feet in the air. Wherever you go, you are bound to see and feel things you have never experienced before.

Fly a Plane

Hopping into a plane and taking flight isn’t for the faint-hearted, but there are a number of places that offer one-to-one flying lessons. Sitting in a pilot’s seat may not be your idea of fun, but it’s certainly an adventure if you’re willing to test yourself!

As you can see, there are a whole host of unique, fun and exhilarating ideas that may help you to reignite your passion for adventure once again. Whether you’re getting your blood pumping with a skydive or you’re trying out a new skill and getting a flying lesson local to where you live, there are so many ways to discover adventure in your life again this summertime. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something new for a change; you won’t regret your experience and you will make memories to last a lifetime!
