There are only six months and the year will come to an end. In fact, the year can be too long when you don’t have much to do. Fortunately, there are several activities that you can try to make this year a memorable one. However, the activities are not for the faint hearted. They will actually scare the hell out of you. On the other hand, you gain confidence when you know there are other people that have tried the same activities and came out alive. Besides that, you must be ready to travel far from your home because the majority of them can’t be done in residential places. Here is a list of outdoor activities and adventure sports that you should try this year.

adventure sports

Cycling

 Although cycling is simple, it’s usually filled with lots of adventure. This is because you will see many things as you scale various trails. As a matter of fact, it’s the only outdoor sport that allows you to enjoy nature while burning calories at the same time. To get started, you need to have a bicycle. Fortunately, you can rent one if you can’t afford to buy. It’s also important you invest in safety gear before setting out. Some of the things that you should wear include a helmet, knee pads, shoes and gloves. Such gear helps in protecting you from injuries that result from accidental falls. Before leaving your home, you should first take a test ride to confirm that the brakes and the wheels are in good condition. You should also mount a light as it will enhance your vision in case darkness finds you in the wilderness. Whether you are cycling alone or with friends, it’s always advisable you carry a map of the route that you will be using as it helps in ensuring you don’t get lost along the way. In addition to that, you should carry packed food and water. Some cyclists also recommend people to bring a camera for taking snaps.

Kayaking

Kayaking is done using a canoe on calm waters. You can actually kayak on a river, lake or an ocean. The good thing is that the activity gives you an opportunity to become much closer to nature. Fortunately, you don’t need special skills to go kayaking. As long as you can paddle through the waters, you can explore what the beaches have to offer. You can even practice at the nearest lake or river. And since kayaking commands a huge following, you will definitely meet new people. If you intend to be kayaking regularly, you should consider buying your own canoe because it will save you money in the long run. If you are not a good swimmer, it’s recommended that you wear a safety jacket. The jacket prevents you from drowning in case the canoe overturns.

Hunting

Hunting offers more than just adventure. When you succeed in taking down an animal, you feel like you have achieved a great milestone. However, if you want to have a high success rate, you must have the right hunting gear. Some of the things to invest in include a crossbow, arrows and quiver and a scope. Since an arrow moves at incredible speeds, you will be hitting your targets at the blink of an eye. The scope will help you in spotting game from a distance and aiming. Without a scope it’s not easy to predict where the arrow will land. As long as the crosshairs of the scope is on the body of the game, you can be sure that the animal will not get away. However, you might need to obtain a license before being allowed into your local forest.
