HomeWellness6 Ideas For Active Vacation With Friends

Most people love going on vacation with friends and usually, they choose a location and then they find some activities to do there. Also, some groups of friends simply love going to a city to explore or going to the seaside to enjoy relaxation and the sun. 

However, if you are not that type of friend group, you may want to find something else. People love experiencing new things and trying out some new activities that are more outdoorsy than others. When planning your vacation with friends, you might want to explore some fun activities you’d like to do together and then choose a location based on that. However, if you are having trouble finding what to do on your vacation, here are a few examples of great and fun active vacations you can try with your friends. 

Fitness Events

Now is the time if you’ve all wanted to someday participate in a marathon or even some large group fitness event. There are so many grand fitness events happening all the time, and you can simply join in on the party and exercise. You can all easily join in on the run in the New York City Marathon and plan a whole trip to NYC for both fitness and some fun. You get to spend some time training while you can go sightseeing and enjoy the spirit of NYC. 

Also, if you like cycling you can partake in Critical Mass. This event takes place all over the United States and you can ride your bikes along with thousands of others. There is also the MOrning Gloryville in London which is a type of fitness rave where you can even get free massages. Having a fitness vacation can really be fun, and it can take you to some new places. So, if you’re all crazy about fitness, pack your things and try some of these. 


Hiking Vacation

For all of you that love spending time in nature while getting a daily dose of exercising, hiking vacations are a great option. There are so many great hiking trails all over the United States, as well as the rest of the world, and it would be a shame if they were left unexplored. What’s more, if you have dogs, you can take them with you and let them spend some time with all of you in nature. 

Some of the best scenic hiking locations can be found in Main, including Acadia National Park, and Appalachian Trail. Also, Pennsylvania holds some great trails, including the ones in Fairmount Park. 


Another great option that will help you spend time outside while having fun is golf. There are hundreds of great golf courses all over the world, including in the US. You can easily plan a trip around playing golf and research some great cities to visit and enjoy this great sport. For example, you can go for some group golfing in Scottsdale and try your skills against your friends. This golf course is for more experienced players, so if you already have some skills, give it a try. Otherwise, you can look for smaller courses and simply have fun in the sun while you play. 

Other destinations for golfing include St. Andrews in Scotland, Pebble Beach in California, Australian Sandbelt, and many others. 


Water-Based Activities

Water-based activities are perfect for summer vacations with your friends. And what’s beautiful about these activities is that there are dozens of them to choose from. Additionally, these activities can be both fun and relaxing, since you can swim, take part in those activities or simply relax on the beach. 

Activities that you can choose from include kayaking, surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, and even simple boat ride tours. The possibilities are almost endless and there are gorgeous locations in the world that offer these activities. Probably the best places for snorkeling include Silver Bank in the Dominican Republic, Kealakekua Bay in Hawaii, and Isla Holbox in Mexico. If you are more for kayaking or canoeing you can go to Prince William Sound in Alaska, or some places in Michigan, such as AuSable, Pere Marquette, and White River. 

Additionally, if you’d like to try surfing, you can go to Jeffrey’s Bay in South Africa, Gold Coast in Australia, Zuma Beach in California, or even Many Bay in New Zealand. 

Mountain Biking

If you love more adrenaline-raising activities, why not go on vacation where you can spend hours mountain biking? If all of you have some great bikes and all the necessary equipment it’s time to find a great trail for this sport. Additionally, you can easily find different terrains, including dry ground, trails with lots of turns and obstacles, and so much more. 

Some great locations for these activities include the McKenzie River Trail in Oregon which has over 25 miles of trails with great ride potential. Also, you can check out the PoisonSpider Mesa trail in Utah with plenty of steep areas and some great terrains for your best stunts. 


Zip Lining

If you’ve already tried some of these activities mentioned above and would love to try something new this vacation, then you should go zip lining. With zip-lining, you can get your daily dose of adrenaline, while you can also travel the world and enjoy some breathtaking views and sceneries. There are also different intensity levels to choose from, from beginner to expert. 

Some of the best places for this activity and vacation include Cutirre Canopy Tour in Nicaragua, The Grande Lakes Adventure in Florida, and probably the best one is the Rainforest Bobsled Jamaica zip line in Mystic Moutain Jamaica.

If you and your friends love traveling, this year can be the one where you get the most out of a vacation. There are some great adventure vacation destinations and activities that you can partake in and have a memorable vacation. You don’t have to relax if you don’t want to and do the classic tourist activities since there are some amazing new things you can try and experience if you seek adventure. So, gather your friends, make a plan of activities that you would all like to try, and hit the road. Maybe you can find a destination where you can try several of these and have a truly adventure-packed vacation.
