Some travelers prefer a relaxing, laid-back holiday spent reading, lazing on the beach or strolling through museums and galleries. Others can’t think of anything worse: They want to do things and burn energy while on holiday. If you fall in the latter category, the following places in the world for active sports lovers may be your dream destinations.
1. New Zealand
Rugby, cricket, golf … there’s almost no sport that Kiwis don’t excel at. You can participate in all these sports and more. The country’s dramatic mountain ranges offer winter sports like skiing while at the coast you can go sailing or surfing. Moreover, as one would expect from the country that gave the world bungee-jumping, extreme and adventure sports are huge in New Zealand too.
