Extreme sports

Extreme sports holidays

Push yourself further than you ever thought possible by taking up an extreme pursuit such as mountaineering, abseiling, skiing, rock climbing and fell-running. (Although perhaps not all of them at once.) They offer a fantastic chance to see parts of the coastline and landscape you can’t access by more pedestrian means. And for an adrenaline-fuelled glimpse of our coastland, there is always kite-surfing. It’s an activity not designed for the faint-hearted or more laid-back among us. Combining elements of windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, oh, and gymnastics too, into one extremely extreme sport.
