We’ve got you covered with these five crazy fun adventure holidays, just make sure you get that travel insurance confirmed once you’ve booked your flights… 

Go on a Walking Safari in Zimbabwe 
Sometimes, the best way to see the world is on foot and wow what a view you will have on safari. Get up close to some of the world’s greatest species and enjoy the stunning Zimbabwe wildlife. From valleys to grasslands, waterfalls and highlands, you’ll be blown away by the natural beauty. Watch elephant herds in their natural environment, and rhinos casually grazing on the land. This is a once in a lifetime holiday that will stay with you forever, and a great opportunity to brush up on your photography skills. A true African adventure. 

Trek the Inca Trail
If Machu Picchu isn’t already on your travel bucket list, then you may want to re-evaluate. Hiking the iconic Inca Trail is a rewarding yet physically demanding task, so you will need to be in good physical shape for most of the routes. The multi-day treks will enable you to experience sub-tropical Andean mountain environments including cloud forest and jungle. There are also many micro-climates so you’ll need to be prepared for all weathers including heavy rain. When you finally reach the enchanting Machu Picchu, the sweat (and potential tears) will have all been worth it for what is a truly unique experience. 

Surf in Sri Lanka
When you think of epic surfing, you may immediately assume California or Hawaii, but Sri Lanka is one of the ultimate locations to try riding the waves. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, there’s a beach to suit you. The West side of the island is best for surf between November and April, whereas the East side is the ideal spot between May and October. Uncrowded beaches and consistent swells make Sri Lanka a real surfers paradise, not to mention the friendly locals and fantastic food too.

Mountain Biking in New Zealand
New Zealand is a popular destination for travellers and digital nomads, and with all that stunning natural beauty it’s not hard to see why. You’ll discover some amazing cycle routes in New Zealand, but to truly get off the beaten track choose Fiordland National Park located in the Southland. You’ll be zooming around the mountains and stopping for a snack by a glistening lake that emerged out of nowhere. It’s a great way to disconnect from the daily stress and truly enjoy everything nature has to offer. 

Zip Lining in Costa Rica
This is definitely not one for the faint hearted! If it’s an adrenaline rush you’re after, this ought to see to that. Your heart will be pounding as you glide through the Costa Rican forest on a zip line, over the trees and between the canyons. Admire mind-blowing views and try to forget about the fact you’re about 450 feet up in the air…
