Walk the (Adrena)line! Best of Extreme Sports around our parks!
Push yourself further than you ever thought possible by taking up an extreme sport such as abseiling, surfing, paragliding, parkour and rockclimbing (although perhaps not all of them at once!) at one of the many locations near our parks.
Mainly of these activities offer fantastic chances to see parts of the coastline and landscape you can’t normally access by more pedestrian means.
