When we think of a holiday, one of the first thoughts that comes into our heads is reclining by a poolside in the villa we’ve booked for a week, hardly leaving except to find something tasty to eat. It’s a dream of manny people to do just that, but it can get a bit boring, and there’s a good chance you’ll come back home thinking about all the great sights, sounds, and smells you missed.
So if you’re someone who loves to get their sweat on, or you want to be the kind of person who can never be stopped in such a hectic lifestyle, why not use your holiday time to get started? It’s a great way to kick start a workout hobby, seeing as there’s plenty of exotic and interesting activities to try out when you’re abroad!

Get Out On and Under the Water
If you’re headed to a coastal area, or one that’s known for its vast rivers and lakes, now’s the time to head near the water’s edge and really enjoy what nature has to offer there. Sure, a lake in Norway might not be the best place to strip off and dive into, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hire a boat to sail your way down the giant fjords!
You’ve headed out to a hot country, with plenty of beaches to walk down and sand to get on your towel, but how about fully getting into the swing of things and jumping into the ocean? As long as it’s a safe place to do so, or you’ve got a guide with you that’ll show you how to swim with the dolphins, bring your full face snorkel mask out with you and have the holiday experience of a lifetime. Not every country has a coral reef, and it’s an unfortunate truth that they might not be around forever!
Get On Your Bike
If you’ve headed off to a country that has quite a lot of hills to hike up and mountainous regions to work your way through, why not hire a mountain bike and get peddling? The trees look a lot better when you’re zooming your way down a forest path, and if you come across any errant animals, you’ll be able to get away much faster!
It’s something most of us are able to do, seeing as we have working legs, so putting them to good use surrounded by picturesque scenery and plenty of fresh air is always going to be a great idea. There are all kinds of treks across the world, and you can find plenty of famous trails to work your way down. You never know the history you’ll come across!
Holidays are a time you should never waste, so make sure you’re putting your energy to good use and having an absolute blast. Work your way in and out of mountains and volcanoes; you can do that!
