Those who prefer to take things at a slightly slower pace could try paddleboarding or kayaking.

Look for what’s on offer in your area and plan accordingly. Remember, there are lots of exciting sports to try on land too. You could have a go at horseback riding, archery or axe throwing. Your imagination really is the only limit.
