Not everybody loves vacations where all you do is lie around on the beach and drink cocktails – and if that’s not your thing, you’re in the right place! If you love sports and love travel, there are plenty of options at your disposal. Here, you will find out how you can make  your vacation more exciting!


A vacation can be the ideal opportunity to try new sports or activities and enjoy life at a faster pace; in this blog, we will take a look at three fun vacation activities that’ll get your blood pumping and make you feel alive.

  1. Horseback riding.

Horseback riding is one of those sports that you were either exposed to when you were growing up, or you simply weren’t. But even as an adult, you can become passionate about horse riding and enjoy it as a vacation sport, or even as a sport you continue at home. 


Horseback riding in another country is a great way to see the landscapes and get your blood pumping while you do it! Getting to know the horse you ride and forming a bond is very rewarding, plus your muscles will be sore the day after! Although horseback riding looks like a pretty low-impact activity, it is much more of a workout than you may originally think.

  1. White water rafting.

If you love white-knuckle sports and want to take your adrenaline to the next level, white water rafting is for you. There’s a trip that consists of 2 day whitewater rafting in Moab Utah that will blow you away – a core workout like no other! Plus, you’ll get the experience of a lifetime, with experienced guides and beautiful landscapes to see while you cascade down the waters in your raft.


If you’ve never been white water rafting before, prepare to have quite an exhilarating experience; this sport isn’t for the faint hearted. You will wear a helmet and a life jacket, zooming down the waters at what feels like lightning speed, with only your paddle for control. 

  1. Swim with sharks.

For the ultimate daredevils, swimming with wild sharks is quite the intense vacation experience. In places such as the Caribbean or Thailand you can swim with wild sharks that are pretty indifferent to humans, but that doesn’t mean you won’t feel their presence!


Contrary to popular belief, sharks rarely attack or kill humans. Most of the time they will swim past you and barely register your existence, but nevertheless, these huge beasts will give you an experience you’ll never, ever forget.


When you decide to swim with sharks, make sure you always go with a professional guide. Although sharks rarely attack people, it is never a good idea to do it without an experienced person by your side.
