Why Book?

Reasons for Booking Extreme Sports

Here are a few reasons why it can be worthwhile to book your extreme activities ahead of time.

It’s a good way to find reputable providers

By their very nature extreme sports involve a certain amount of danger. Although it’s unlikely you’ll ever get hurt, booking your white knuckle activities with a reputable provider will make sure that every safety precaution is taken and you’ll come out the other side with all your limbs intact.

They’ll provide equipment

Whether it’s skiing, cycling, kayaking, or something else your parents would rather you didn’t do, you’re going to need a lot of equipment. While it’s usually possible to rent these independently, it’ll probably be significantly more expensive, and you won’t know for sure that you have the right kit. Book ahead and everything you need for the task at hand is included in the price.

Learn to be the ultimate badass

There are two ways to learn how to do something: get on with it by yourself and hope for the best, or take lessons from someone who knows what they’re doing. Guess which one ends with you claiming on your travel insurance? Depending on the activity, booking can give you a chance to learn from the best, develop a new skill, and have a much better time than if you go it alone.

You won’t get lost

Some of the longer adventures on offer give you the chance to hit the open road/slopes/water and experience a destination in an utterly unique way. There will also be people on hand to steer you in the right direction so that you never stray somewhere where you’re unsafe or unwelcome, as well as guaranteed checkpoints and accommodation waiting for you at the end of a hard day.


Extreme sports are a great way to push your limits and gain a different perspective on some of the world’s most beautiful destinations. Once you’ve decided what you’d like to do give the experts at StudentUniverse a call and they can book the right extreme activities for you.
