Five Things The Adventurous Should Do On Vacation (If They Haven’t Already)


For some people vacation is about more than just getting away from work for a few days. It’s about having fun and being adventurous. If you want an adventurous vacation, whether that’s your normal thing or just something new you decided to try, here are five things you should do at least once in your life.

Go Skydiving

Afraid of heights? Well, then you probably don’t want to go skydiving, unless you’re ready to face your fear head on. Even if you’ve never done it before the professionals will walk you through it.

You can even skydive with a buddy attached to you, just in case you think you’ll be panicking too much when it’s time to pull the cord to your parachute. Take some time to look for reputable skydiving businesses before you go up in that plane!

Go Diving

Whether you want to go deep sea diving, or maybe you want to check out the shipwrecks in the Great Lakes, diving can be a great adventure. For people with a fear of water, diving may not be a good idea and can be a risk. However, if you aren’t afraid, just unsure, it’s likely you can be walked through it.

Once you are underwater you’ll experience sharks, fish of all types, interesting underwater plants, and so much more. It’s like a whole different world.

Go Jet Skiing

Love the water and want more than just diving? Or maybe you just want to keep your head above water. Jet skiing can be fun and exhilarating. Make sure that you are riding with a driving that knows how to haul skiers.

You also want to make sure you take safety precautions, such as wearing a helmet and having on a life jacket. Being adventurous doesn’t mean being unsafe!

Go Skiing

If you prefer cold weather adventures, try your hand (and legs) at skiing. You can find great ski weekend packages, and there’s always a slope for beginners. You may want to sign up for some classes when you get to your lodge.

As many skiers know, you may want to make sure you insurance is up-to-date before you head down the slope, as accidents and broken limbs do happen, even to the best skiers.

Go Up In A Hot Air Balloon

This one might be on your bucket list. Many towns have hot air balloon festivals now. You just might get the chance to try this adventure out, vacation or not.

Whatever your vacation plan, work towards making it an adventurous one. If there are kids involved you’ll want to find some adventures that are a little more tame so they can have some fun too! Try checking out a cave or going to an amusement park and riding the scariest roller coaster.
