There’s nothing quite like adventure to get your heartbeat racing and your adrenaline pumping – and it’s a sure fire way to ensure you enjoy immersive play. Adventure infuses our play with both novelty and excitement – an intoxicating mix!


My bucket list already includes both skydiving, clay pigeon shooting and flying trapeze lessons and I’ve already done snorkelling, speed boat rides, waterfall hikes, 4 x 4 track adventures, camping, white water rafting and horseback riding. And I’ve now got even more items from which I’d like to add to my fifty before fifty. See below for my top twenty adventurous activities list and discover your thrill seeking side.


Having said all this, what you consider adventurous might be different.  Camping, caravanning or even a nice barge boat holiday where you navigate may seem much more appealing, exciting and adventurous to you. The key is not to push yourself beyond your limits but to rather go past your usual comfort zone.
