Need something that gets your heart racing and your blood pumping? We can think of a few things to do here in the UK that’ll do the job. If you love clinging to crags, there are plenty of epic climbs up and down the UK, ranging from the well-chalked faces of Stanage Edge and Scarfell to some of the lesser known but more hair-raising crags of the Peaks, Lakes, Dales, Cairngorms and South Coast too.
For a little extra adrenaline, why not give deep water solo a go? Climb without a harness or ropes over open water, dropping into the blue when reach your limit. You can get your rocks and water fix out canyoning too, scrambling up and abseiling down waterfalls, cliff jumping, wild swimming and climbing watery crags to do it all over again.
If via ferratta is more your style, you don’t need to be in the Dolomites to experience the thrill; the UK has plenty to offer too. Head to Honsiter in the Lake District for one of the world’s best via ferratta experiences.
If you love heights, seek out high wire courses, which can be found at various locations around the UK, and if you’re by the sea and want a little more excitement, give coasteering a go. It’s a much more intense way to explore the UK coastline, as you hop, scramble and jump your way along coastal cliffs. You’re attached to a rope but it’ll certainly get your blood pumping, as long as you don’t mind getting wet! Finally, if you’re looking for ultimate adrenaline rush, BASE jumping is about as thrilling as it gets, but you’ll need extensive training before you can master this one.
