Are you tired of wasting another summer in the city? Do you wish to see the world and try new and exciting things this year?
Here are the five best summer activities for adventurous men that will definitely boost your adrenaline.
Are you sick of your TV, annoying smartphone pings and constant e-mails? Gear up your motorcycle and have a wonderful summer adventure in nature. If you get the shivers after hearing the word ‘glamping’, grab only a few necessities, find a secluded spot and get ready to survive a few days. Camping is a great way to rest your brain and give your body a good test of endurance. Plus, trekking your supplies over the rugged terrain will give you a better workout than your gym, so you won’t miss a session! For all you extreme freaks, you can join a wilderness survival challenge and try to survive obstacles they put in front of you.
Spending your summer somewhere near the water is the best thing you can do to find refreshment. Even if chilling near the water is relaxing, it’s not exactly something that will create memories you will be glad to share with your kids. So, for something more extreme, head to Croatia and explore the coastline and battle waves in your little kayak. If this sounds too chill for you, Victoria Falls has some extreme and unforgiving Class V rapids you can hit on your rafting trip. Still not sold? Try mountain biking through the forest to your rafting destination!
Climb some rocks
Do you think you can easily conquer some rocks? Well, think again! Rock climbing is a full-body workout that challenges both your body and mind, but it’s also super fun and a great way to meet other adventurous people. For the full experience, pick a location near water, so you can plunge down once you manage to reach the top. If this seems too tame, try canyoning—it’s one of the best summer activities for friends that will definitely satisfy your thirst for adventure!
Meet the underwater world
If you love the beach, but think sipping cocktails out of a coconut is not very exciting, you can head to Australia and meet its more than exciting underwater world. And you don’t need any previous knowledge or experience in diving—all you need is a mask and a snorkel and you’re ready to hit the water. If you love to have some more freedom in the water and dive a bit deeper than your average snorkeler, you can find a full face snorkel mask in Australia that offers best comfort and visibility as you explore. Some diving and snorkeling spots almost require these new mask designs, so these will definitely come in handy. If you need something even more exciting, you can go swimming with sharks in Port Lincoln if you think you can handle the danger.
Hit the sand
If surfing is life, why not switch things up and try a new surfing medium—sand! Surfing the sand dunes is the fastest and most fun way to get around the desert. This summer alternative to snowboarding and water surfing is quickly gaining in popularity and becoming a real sport, but don’t worry if you can’t imitate the pros and stay upright. The fall is soft and you can always sit on the board and swoosh down on your behind sled-style! Dubai is your best destination for sand surfing, but Australia also has great spots like Pinnacles Desert.
Any of these activities sound interesting to your adventurous mind? If yes, book a trip now and have the best summer vacation that will allow you to break your boring routines and get your heart pumping!
