Summer is the best time of year to be outdoors, we can all agree on that one. The sun is out, the temperature is warm and the whole world seems to be in a good mood! It’s time to escape the indoors and soak up all that summer sun while you can. If you’re a self-proclaimed ‘home-body’ and a bit lost as to where and what to do to enjoy the outdoors this summer – fear not! We’ve put together our 5 favorite outdoor summer activities and destinations to inspire you for your summer break.
Kayaking in Croatia
What better way to enjoy both the land and sea than by kayaking? While you can kayak through rivers, lakes and streams, we’re particular fans of exploring the Dalmatian Coast by kayak. Make the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Split your home base, relax at the beach and the glorious Croatian sunshine or enjoy the sea as you paddle along.
Zorbing in Edinburgh
Have you always wanted to know what a hamster in a hamster wheel feels like? Zorbing may be your new favorite activity then. Rolling Haggis, located in Edinburgh, lets you climb inside their giant inflatable sphere and rolls you down some truly impressive Scottish landscape. After all that rolling, you may need some solid land to rest and recuperate. The Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh is located on the Royal Mile in the heart of the city and would be happy to help you come back down to earth after your zorbing adventures.
