The usual routine or heavy workloads can certainly be draining. When you hear someone says “I need a holiday”, then their energy barrel has been emptied out. Meanwhile, if you find yourself saying that statement, it’s now the time to immerse yourself in a holiday.
Alternatively, you could combine the holiday and exciting activities together. For that, we’ve compiled a list of the best activity holidays found in the United Kingdom or in Ireland. Learn more below and choose the best option for you.
Wild Swimming – Lake District
The Lake District is quite famous for hiking or climbing activities. However, the waters in that place are not to be overlooked. Well-known places such as Windermere can be great for water activities, but it can get too crowded with boat traffic. Here in the Lake District, you can swim wildly in the fresh, clean, uncrowded water. Several companies are offering equipment rentals and guided sessions in the area. You don’t have to worry about being a beginner or having to purchase your own gear beforehand.
Fat Biking – Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes, Wales
Rent out bikes in the town of Porthcawl and drive along the second tallest sand dune in all of Europe. Fat bikes and their large tires allow you to steer through high dunes and immerse in the thrill.
Traverse through Dartmoor in The Dark
Made famous by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles, the Dartmoor National Park is the best spot for Sherlock Holmes or even literary enthusiasts. At night, this place offers a better and even more terrifying experience. If you’re afraid of seeing the cursed hound for yourself, then you can stay at Lee Byre B&B.
A guided walk and tour will cost £30 per person.
