Camels and Caves: The Oddest Holiday Activities to Get Up to in Summer 2016
As soothing as it is to sit by the pool, book in hand, sometimes you want to do more than just rest and relax while you’re on holiday. Shake off the pressures and constraints of real life by trying something completely new, even a little odd, and unwind. The world offers some surprising opportunities to break out your comfort zone all in the name of fun. We’ve picked out some of the best for you to truly have adventures and experiences to tell all your friends about when you get back home.
Kite surfing in Majorca
Majorca has long, sandy beaches, crystal-blue waters and an average of 260 windy days per year. This sets it up perfectly as a location for discovering kitesurfing. In this fast-growing watersport you’ll harness the power of the wind and skim on a surfboard on water, moving the kite to steer and increase or decrease speed. There are more than 15 schools in Majorca to study this art of riding the waves by using the power of nature.
Swimming with whale sharks in Mexico
Whale sharks may be the world’s biggest fish but they’re not man-eaters. These docile sharks can grow up to a massive 50 feet in length and spend most of their time gliding in circles. In the summertime, hundreds of whale sharks migrate to the Caribbean Sea just off the coast of Cancun, to filter-feed on the nutrient-rich plankton found there and placidly swim side-by-side with intrepid aquanauts.
Those that take part testify to the almost spiritual experience of swimming alongside these gentle giants. They even consider the experience life enriching.
Camel rides in Tenerife
Most visitors to Tenerife like to spend lots of time on its coastline and with good reason. Sun and surf abound but there are adventures to be had if you’re willing to head even just a little inland. But camels in Tenerife? Yes, because the arid climate suits camels better. There are plenty of places where the more game can hop on the back of these ‘ships of the desert’ and experience Tenerife’s countryside in a truly unusual way.
Mud baths in Bulgaria
The muddy banks of the lake of Pomerie, a town which lies approximately 30 minutes by car from Bourgas, are believed to have phenomenal curative properties. Famous and popular, why not join the visitors to the bank rolling round in the mud and having a whale of a time doing so to enhance their health and general well- being. The mud from this salty lake is said to work wonders for the skin, but there’s only one way to find out! Get in there and enjoy one of these magical mud baths!
