Thrill-Seeking Worldwide Adventure Holidays for Adrenaline Junkies!

21 April 2021

If you’re in the mood to let off some serious post-lockdown steam, then why not swap that deluxe hotel break for something more adventurous?

Inspired by fresh air and adrenaline, our list of thrill-seeking stays includes all manner of blood-pumping adventure, from roaming the hills in a Land Rover Defender (then camping on the roof!) to cosy canvas bedrooms suspended from scenic mountains.  

Prefer less dramatic accommodation, but with plenty of heart-racing activity on site? No problem! Just grab yourself an energy-boosting cuppa, and get ready to dive in.
