    Finding thrills in the UK

    There are no active volcanoes in the UK, which is great, though it does mean Brits have to go abroad to try the new and bizarre sport of Volcano Surfing. Brits will also struggle to find a good place for Skijoring, where you put on skis and get pulled along by horses or dogs. While these both sound amazing, there are plenty of other ways to get an adrenaline rush in the UK. Here are a few you might not have tried:

    Driving a supercar

    In 2007, a man was jailed for ten weeks for driving a borrowed Porsche at 172mph down the A420 in Oxfordshire. He should have just paid for a supercar driving experience, where he could have done the same thing, but legally and more safely, on a racetrack.

    If sports cars aren’t your thing, at some driving tracks you can race JCBs, or drive monster trucks, articulated lorries, and even fire engines.

    Where to do it: York, Wigan, Stratford-upon-Avon.

    Caving

    Last year, Werner Herzog blagged himself the best caving experience of all time – he got permission to explore the Chauvet Cave in France, which contains 32,000-year-old paintings, the oldest in the world.

    Watching Herzog’s film is the only way you’ll get to see inside Chauvet – it’s closed to the public. However, there are plenty of picturesque caves to explore around the UK.

    Where to do it: Yorkshire Dales, the Peak District, Sutherland (Scotland).

    Hostage rescue

    If your friends are a bit bored with paintballing, why not buy them a hostage rescue day gift? You’ll be trained in weapons and tactics, and then have to plan and carry out the rescue, using replica weapons.

    You can also do ‘spy days’, which involve sniping, electronic surveillance and driving stunts.

    Where to do it: Milton Keynes.

    Flying lesson

    This is understandably exciting for the participants, but you’d think it would also cause a real adrenaline rush for the teacher, because you’re driving the plane, and you’ve never driven a plane before. Fortunately, they also have a set of controls, so it’s safe. In some ‘flying experience’ sessions, you’re allowed to do barrel rolls, loops and other aerial acrobatics.

    Where to do it: Gloucestershire, Bristol, Cardiff.

    Barefoot water skiing

    The name is something of a contradiction, as if you put skis on your feet, they are no longer bare. Still, it sounds fun – you get pulled along by a boat while standing up. As you don’t have skis, you need to go pretty fast to stay above the water. In March 2011, a barefoot water skier set a new world record – 153mph. He was being pulled by a helicopter.

    Where to do it Ringwood (Hampshire), Lydd (Kent).

    Coasteering

    The coastal equivalent of parkour, coasteering involves scrambling up cliffs, across rocky ridges, over obstacles, and through caves, as well as a fair bit of diving and swimming. It’s good exercise, adrenaline-filled, and done on remote beaches, so any embarrassing slip-ups are less public than if you were doing parkour.

    Where to do it: Devon and Cornwall are full of great spots.
