Is your Adventure this Summer a UK Staycation?
Original post: Another World Adventures
Adventure doesn’t just have to happen on faraway shores. We have such a varied landscape on our tiny island in the UK – mountains, beaches, moorland and highland, isolated islands, lakes and lochs, forest and river valleys – it’s just as possible to have an adventure in the British Isles that provides you with a completely new experience and pushes you out of your comfort zone.
UK Sailing Adventures
As an island nation, we are able to offer a range of exciting sailing opportunities that will suit everyone from complete beginners who want to learn the ropes, all the way through to experienced sailors looking for an adrenaline rush. And it’s not just about the sailing itself, but where you do it and the activities you add! Explore remote Scottish islands, sail the length of the UK, join a sailing wellness retreat or everything in between.
Multi-activity Adventures in the UK
Water adventures don’t stop at sailing of course. Multi-activity adventure trips can offer something for the easily bored adventure seeker with opportunities to explore the Welsh coastline by packrafting, coasteering and riverbugging. Fancy more of a split between land and water-based activities? Multi-activity holidays can include hiking the UK’s highest mountain AND river rafting, amongst other activities that immerse you in the Great British Outdoors.
UK Land Adventures
On land, there are plenty of activities to keep your adrenaline pumping! Cover more ground at speed by exploring the wilds of Snowdonia by mountain bike over mountains, through forests and along coastlines. If you’re more of a history buff than a speed demon and would like to take in the local environment at a more leisurely pace, walking Hadrian’s Wall will let you immerse yourself in Roman history for several days. For a completely different walking experience, why not escape for two weeks into the mountains and challenge yourself to summit the highest 14 peaks in Snowdonia National Park.
