Adrenaline junkie: a person with a compulsive desire for excitement and adventure (according to the dictionary definition).

If you have such a person in your life, the type who is constantly searching for the biggest rush and would abseil to work if they could, we have a number of Christmas gifts that are perfect for them.

From skydiving to canyoning to sports car driving, and loads more (at massively discounted prices), thanks to us you can give them an experience to remember.

Check out a selection of our thrill seeking deals below, and even more on our Christmas Gifts Page.



There are few activities more thrill seeking that skydiving. Our skydive Christmas Gift involves accelerating to 120mph with around 30 seconds of freefall before the instructor opens the parachute and skilfully takes you back to ground. Operating from Errol Airfield in Perthshire, on a clear day you will be able to see the mountains, the Tay, both Perth and Dundee. Friends and family are welcome to come and watch you and others jump from the picnic and BBQ area.

£229 for a Tandem Skydive with Paragon Skydiving Club, Perthshire on the 5pm Christmas Gifts Page.



Canyoning is an action-packed outdoor activity that involves scrambling down rivers; floating down water flumes; wading through rock pools and loads of different watery jumps. Our canyoning Christmas gift will be based in Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and recipients will be kitted out with wet suits, buoyancy aids, helmets and harnesses for their adventure. For an idea of what to expect, watch this canyoning video.
