The UK is top of the bucket list for many travellers, especially for those of us here in the USA. There’s a rich cultural heritage over the pond, with centuries old castles and monuments. But, for those who aren’t interested in museums and heritage sites, there’s another side to the little island. That’s right, there’s a huge culture of thrill-seeking and adventure in the UK. It’s all thanks to the rugged coastlines and wonderful natural parks. Let’s take a look at some of the best options.
Mountain Climbing - The UK doesn’t have the tall, jagged appeal of the Alps. Nor does it have the sheer size of the Rocky Mountains. But, it does have a few beautiful regions to explore. Even the casual hiker can make it to the top of the highest peak, Ben Nevis in Scotland. Don’t think it’s all for beginners, however. There are some seriously challenging bouldering and climbing routes in the Lake District and Peak District. If you’ve got a head for heights and a thrill for adventure, try it out.
