Are you one of those who think that the UK is all about the cottage core aesthetics and pretty quiet villages? If yes, you need to think again after some research or exploration. It is because the UK has a lot of incredible adventurous spots that you should consider visiting during your holidays.
Ever tried swimming with seals or bungee jumping in Scotland? No! So this is the time for you. Regardless of whether you are brave enough for all or just a few, go ahead to give it a shot.
Here is the article about your holiday time spent in the UK in an adventurous way. These are the places you should visit.
- Lundy Island:
Forget the dangerous swimming with shark things. This option won an award, giving you more excitement and fun—Head from Lifracombe Harbour to Lundy Island. On your way, you will see the usual views of dolphins. After reaching, you have the chance to spend your entire morning swimming with the seals in the bays and coves around the island. Seals are one of the most friendly and curious creatures to love and say hello to. So this should get you prepared for close interactions too.
- Surf Sennen Cove:
Surf up in Sennen Cove! The place in Cornwall is considered the most radical place for catching waves all around the UK. If you are a beach lover, then this is also a great place to spend your day with a pub, fish, and chip shop making your swing. However, if waves are the reason to go there, it would be a great adventure.
It is time for you to strap and get yourself into the fastest zip line worldwide. It would be unfair to complete the list of UK adventures without the addition of Velocity 2 in Zip World in North Wales. You will get dangled face-first on the front side as you soar down the wire above the lake. Just the acceleration takes your breath away as you get a rocket from 0 mph to 60 mph within 10 seconds.
If you don’t think this is enough adventure in the UK, you should consider visiting Snowdonia, the highest mountain in wales.
- Three Peaks Challenge:
It is the point where you are in a race against time while climbing the tallest peaks of the UK within 24 hours. You need to walk for 37km and ascend 3,064m climbing up the Snowdon in Wales, Scafell Pike in England, and Ben Nevis in Scotland. Each of your body muscles gets into the test. However, you can rest as you drive in between the mountains.
- Northern Ireland:
There is no spectacular cycle route in the UK other than the Cycle Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. However, note that you need to stop regularly to take it all in. This cycle route is 37km along the coast of the North Atlantic. The route has all the signs with several dedicated cycle-friendly measures that assure you traffic-free riding journey. Also, you have an option for a challenge, which needs you to sign up for the Giant’s Causeway Coast Sportive. It is a leisurely race and the biggest cycling event in Northern Ireland.
Now you know that the United Kingdom is even full of adventure. It is all up to you what you want in your holidays. It could be calm and peaceful or super adventurous in the UK. To avoid disappointment, make sure to check on it before you visit the destination.
