Savvy Ways to Have an Adventurous Vacation

Savvy Ways to Have an Adventurous Vacation

This year, why not try and change up your usual sun-soaked, relaxing vacation and head off on an adventure. An adventure vacation not only gives you the chance to get away from it all for a while but also gives you the chance to have some real fun and action. There are all kinds of ways in which you can turn your vacation into an adventure and today we are going to give you just a few ideas for how you can replace that pool-side hotel stay, into an all action week away.

Go Fishing

Fishing is a great way to spend your vacations, heading out to the open sea or a sprawling river to catch some incredible fish. Even beginners will find a fishing trip to be incredibly relaxing and a great way to see a new destination. Last year I went to Miami with my husband and he loves to fish so we made a deal that we’d spend a week on the water and a week relaxing on the beach. We decided to get a yacht fishing charter in Miami area which meant that we could get to the best fishing spots and do so in style. Even as someone who doesn’t love fishing, I had a great time and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an adventurous vacation.

Scuba Diving

Staying with the theme of water, why not head off on a scuba diving tour this year, there are so many outstanding spots all over the World where you can dive and lots of companies who offer to show you the way. Even if you have never dived before, almost all diving schools offer on site lessons and you can pretty much spend your vacation learning how to do it and gaining your qualifications. Find a hotel near Santa Cruz Beach in California, and you can walk to the beach and find many businesses that offer SCUBA diving lessons. The World looks an awful lot different underwater and once you head down under you will be able to enjoy the tranquil and colorful life that exists beneath.

All Action

There are many countries across the World who specialize in adventure and you can arrange a vacation which is packed wall-to-wall with exactly that. Locations like New Zealand for example which offer tourists a whole range of activities from bungee jumping, skydiving, white-water rafting, kayaking, hiking, caving, sailing and much more. So if you’re looking to plan a trip to New Zealand and want to get to one fun activity to the next easily, knowing that you can hire a campervan in Christchurch could make this a lot less stressful.

If you want to really witness adventure travel then why not plan a whole vacation around getting the most action that you possibly can.


Another way to add a huge injection of adventure to your journey is to visit a destination of a famous festival while it is taking place. There are all different types of fun-filled festivals around the globe which you could get involved with from the running of the bulls in Pamplona to La Tomatina in Valencia, you could visit Carnival in Rio or witness Oktoberfest in Germany. Adding a festival to the mix when heading to a particular destination can really add an extra sense of excitement and adventure so check out the calendar before you get booked up.

    You made me think you save to go on that vacation but most of the time its not adventurous. Its usually the same old same………. go to the beach, stay at the same place, eat at the same place.

    Think it time for us to be ADVENTUROUS

    Fishing is one of my favorite activities. I find it so relaxing. Planning a vacation around fishing would be really fun. First it would ensure it would be around water (which I love), and it would get us out doing something relaxing, yet encouraging us talking and communicating as a family.
