Whether you’re planning a holiday for summer or winter, if you’re wanting to get in a lot of outdoor sports then it’s important to consider where you’re headed. There are some countries that have so much on offer that no matter the type of activity you want to do, you’ll be spoiled with options. Here are my top 3 best holiday destinations for outdoor lovers.
You can enjoy a trip to Canada any time of year and find yourself with ample outdoor activities. Canada is home to some of the most stunning landscapes in the world, some of the best ski fields and countless great hiking trails which makes it a diverse and engaging country to visit. If you visit in winter you’ll easily find some of the best ski fields in the world and during the summer months many of them close and turn into mountain biking ranges or hiking trails. Whether you’re chasing summer or winter, there’s plenty to do here no matter the time of year.
I love warm weather which ensures that this list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Thailand. Here you can do lots of outdoor tourist attractions such as rafting, hiking through the north part of Thailand, and there’s a few zip lines scattered throughout the country. But perhaps the best outdoor activity for outdoor lovers is diving: Thailand is home to some of the best value diving in the world. The low cost of living and expenses ensures you can get a few dives in for the same price you’d pay for just one in many other countries.
3. New Zealand
Known for its natural beauty worldwide, New Zealand offers a bunch of outdoor activities in a pretty small country, ensuring that you can do a bunch of outdoor activities within the same day, if you wish. For example, if you base yourself in Christchurch, New Zealand you could, in theory, go for a ski at Mt Hutt and then in the afternoon go out surfing in Taylor’s mistake, located around 90 minutes away from the mountain. The diversity is what makes New Zealand such a great tourist destination, but throw in an unusual assortment of outdoor activities such as bungy jumping, ski diving and white water rafting and you’ll have an adventure packed holiday planned in no time.
No matter which of these destinations you choose, you will be surely spoiled by some of the world’s greatest natural beauty complimented by a bunch of fun outdoor activities!
