With Tour de Yorkshire almost upon us, we thought we’d share the best places you can stay to watch...
Adventure seekers watch out! The UK is a fantastic place for getting adventurous in the great outdoors. Whether it’s rolling down a hill in a giant inflatable ball, travelling downstream in a big rubber ring or descending downhill at speed, there are countless opportunities to raise your adrenaline levels and try something new. Here are some ideas to get you excited…
Originally from New Zealand, this zorbing is now taking the UK by storm. So what actually is zorbing? Zorbing is basically rolling down a hill side in a giant inflatable ball. Choose from dry or wet zorbing and enjoy rolling and bouncing downhill. Fancy it? Visit www.zorbsouth.co.uk for more information about zorbing at their centre in Dorset.
White water rafting is old hat, white water tubing is the new thing! So what exactly is it? White water tubing is basically travelling down a river sitting in your very own rubber ring. You are provided with all of the safety equipment including a wet suit helmet and webbed gloves so that you can paddle down the river. Visit www.whitewatertubing.co.uk for more information about white water tubing in the River Dee.
Mountain biking has taken the UK by storm in recent years with mountain biking centres springing up all over the UK. Coed Llandegla Forest in North Wales is one of such centres, a bike only zone with routes for all abilities from short family routes right up to the black route, with leg aching uphill sections and hair raising steep downhill descents. Plus you can indulge in a delicious burger or hot chocolate in their fantastic cafe to refuel at the end.
Fancy swinging through the forest? Go Ape is a high ropes challenge of rope bridges, zip lines, rope swings and nets that is sure to get your heart racing! There are twenty eight Go Ape centres in the UK, including as far north as Aberdeen in Scotland, two in the Lake District and one in Devon. Visit www.goape.co.uk for more information.
