8 super fun activities to chill out this vacation

Looking for some sporty recreation at your vacation destination?  While the summer may be drawing to a close, it’s still burning in more temperate areas. These activities will beat the heat while ensuring Insta-worthy memories of your vacation.

Diving in Egypt



The scorching summer temperatures in Egypt are perfect for a day-long diving excursion from Sharm el Sheik. After an introduction from a professional diving instructor, you’ll explore the Jackson Reef and the areas surrounding the Sinai peninsula. Regardless of your skill level, you’ll swim through schools of fish and venture to popular shark-spotting areas. You’ll even get to explore the coral reefs and lovely underwater ecosystem of the marooned Jolanda.

Wakeboarding in South Beach Bay

Learn to wakeboard while zooming through South Beach Bay. After learning the basic techniques  you’ll be able to effortlessly glide around on the waves while under the supervision of your instructor.

Kitesurfing in the Canaries



Kitesurfing is best learned in the summer months on Gran Canaria when the wind conditions are optimal. The 6-hour program starts with a theoretical course before hitting the beach. Then you’ll learn – in safe wind conditions – the first moves. It’s a good way for beginners to get their bearings or veterans to improve their techniques as the instructors also offer critique for the more experienced surfers.

Kayak touring through Amsterdam’s wetlands


The landscape surrounding Amsterdam is a mix of dense reeds and 17th-century villages and windmills. It’s a great chance to learn about the geographical history of the Netherlands and learn about regional products like its fruit, cheese, and bread. You can even hop in and go swimming during the breaks from kayaking!

Float through the water in Ibiza

Blade Fish Sea Jet

Blade Fish Sea Jet


Now this is cool: you can spend a whole day exploring the underwater life in Ibiza with the help of your own mini jet pack, a Blade Fish Sea Jet.  You’ll float underwater like a fish, so you can enjoy the world direct under the surface. Perfect for a break from sunbathing on the beach.

Above-water adventure in Dubai



Adventure seekers can have a try at Jet-Blading on Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach. Whether you’re floating around like Iron Man or swimming like a dolphin, acrobatic tricks shouldn’t be a problem after learning the basics.

Paddlesurfing in Barcelona



Paddlesurfing fans can pursue their passion for the popular sport out of Hawaii in Barcelona’s Olympic Port. The sport has its roots in windsurfing but is considerably easier and suitable for water acrobats of all levels who want to see the city from its watery side.

Windsurfing along the coast of Fuerteventura

A four-day intro course to windsurfing? Sign me up! Fuerteventura is a paradise for water sports, with its long coastline and wonderful variety of water conditions. The latter also means tranquil waters for learning under the watchful eye of a professional instructor. If you want you, can also receive a VDWS beginner windsurf license.
