Posted 5th June 2018 by SockShop
With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start planning your weekends (and the summer holidays). Beautiful weather makes us keen to get outdoors, so pack your diary with some of these unusual activities for an unforgettable experience.
1. Outdoor yoga
|4. Outdoor swimming
Not just an activity for warmer climes, outdoor swimming can be a fun and exhilarating experience. Where you do it depends on how wild you want to go. Got kids or don’t want to venture far from regular changing rooms? There’s plenty of outdoor pools around the country that you can splash around in. If you’re feeling more adventurous, try wild swimming in a lake or the sea – it’s been shown to be beneficial to your body and mind, and it gives you a chance to reconnect with nature, too.
We know, we know – these suggestions are starting to feel more ‘residential school trip’ by the minute. But Britain’s caves really are something to explore, and donning a hardhat, scrambling over rocks and squeezing through tight spots is not only good exercise but great fun, too. Whether you choose the Yorkshire Dales, Somerset’s Cheddar Gorge or somewhere in between, there’ll be caves to explore wherever you are. Choose from full- and half-day trips and make sure you’re led by a qualified instructor.
