The catch with most extreme sports is that they are extremely hard to do. The likes of free running (urban acrobatics), rock climbing and base jumping (low-altitude, high-risk skydiving) demand guts and skill. Screw up and – crunch – you may wind up in the low-adrenaline hell of a hospital: the last place that anyone with a sense of adventure wants to be.
So if hardcore sports aren’t your shtick but you like to take the odd calculated risk with an outdoorsy slant, here are some sample ‘doable’ adrenaline alternatives. No heroics required. In each case, essentially, although the terrain may be extreme, you just need to show up and go with the flow.
