Quad Biking in Sharm El Sheikh

Sharm el Sheikh is an amazing holiday destination, where baking sun meets with incredible coastal diving and some vibrant and exciting towns. One of the best ways to venture out when visiting this region is on a guided quad bike tour through the Sinai desert. You can arrange these trips at most hotels in Sharm, or from tour operator in Naama Bay if you’d prefer. A quad biking adventure will begin with a safety demonstration, where you will be given protective equipment and guidance on controlling your quad. Bring protective goggles and a headscarf with you and your instructor will tie the scarf for you so you won’t get any sand in your face. Once these preparations are finished, you’ll begin your high speed journey into the desert! A tour will take you winding between mountains, across huge plains and over sand dunes, and can take anywhere from an hour to a whole day. Many tours are planned around sunrise or sunset, times when the desert is at its most captivating. Look out for tours which also include the Bedouin experience, where you will be able to meet the area’s locals, as well as trying some local Bedouin tea!

Hiking along Caminito del Rey

Up until this year, walking the infamous Caminito del Rey mountain path in Andalucia, Spain was the pursuit of only the most hardened – and law breaking – thrill seekers. The ruined path claimed several lives in the past two decades and had fallen into a period of total disrepair. However, after a 2.7 million Euro refurbishment project with a massive emphasis on safety, the path has reopened, becoming a safe and legal walk for thrill seekers. The path is set at a dizzying height and gives wonderful views of cliffs and valleys, as well as or the beautiful Gualdalhorce river. It goes without saying, don’t attempt this walk if you have even a slight fear of heights! This route is around an hour’s drive from the resort of Torremolinos, or an hour and a quarter from Malaga.
