There’s really only one thing that adrenaline junkies are afraid of – the long months of sitting idle during winter as inclement weather hampers their action-packed lifestyle. However, if you know where to look, your quest for that next hit of dopamine doesn’t have to be put on hold during the colder months of the year. To get your fix of adrenaline this winter, try giving the following activities a go.
ATV or 4×4 racing is very much a year-round activity. Many businesses offer custom-built tracks for riders to tackle either solo or with friends, providing the perfect wintertime activity for speed demons in search of a new challenge. From standard quad bikes to top-of-the-line Can-Ams, specialist retailers like JSW Powersports can help you narrow down which model would be best suited to your next off-road adventure.
Zorbing makes this list purely for being so weird. Have you ever wanted to encase yourself in a giant, air-cushioned hamster ball and roll down a hillside? Well, that’s a thing you can do now. No, seriously. First established in New Zealand in the 90’s, zorbing can now be done in a number of different countries, in any kind of weather conditions.
3. Bungee jumping
Bungee jumping is another extreme activity that can be undertaken throughout the year at many different locations around the world. As fast as it is fun, bungee jumping is one of the most popular activities amongst adrenaline junkies.
To make the most of the winter months, snowboarding will get you out of the house and onto the slopes. A unique skill, snowboarding combines speed, adrenaline and exercise, appealing to thrill seekers of any age or fitness level. The ski slopes can get a little crowded during winter, so make sure you book ahead.
5. Indoor rock climbing
Don’t let the cold keep you from conquering a mountain. Indoor rock climbing offers a great, hassle-free alternative to real-world climbing, and is suitable for anyone who isn’t afraid of heights and enjoys a bit of physical puzzle-solving. Indoor rock climbing is also a fun way to get some exercise and stay limber during the winter months.
These are just a few of the amazing activities you can try this winter to keep the adrenaline pumping. What are some of the ways you keep yourself entertained when it’s cold? Sound off in the comments below!
