Do something filled with adrenaline to push you out of your comfort zone!

 

Surrounded by glistening flat seas, luscious mountains and valleys, and will the sun dazzling down; Koh Phangan entices adventure and exploration for all ages, interests and experience!

 

 

Adrenaline – Feel the Rush!

When you feel fear, your heart starts pounding. Adrenal glands dump the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline into the bloodstream – adrenaline rush! Your body is now activating at a heightened state of physical and mental alertness. All of it reminds you that you are alive!

However it is that same element of fear that stands between a thrill and just plain fun. Phangan Explorer wants you to live life to its fullest potential!

 

Here are some examples to give you that burst of human jet fuel to rejuvenate your spirits!

Sports and adrenaline activities in Koh Phangan:

 

 

 

1. Jet Ski (The Rush)

Take an adrenaline-filled jet-ski ride over the crystalline blue Koh Phangan waters, while going full throttle to discover secret, deserted beaches all to yourself!

Tip – You don’t need a license to go on one of our jet-ski tours, just to sign a consent form. Be careful for jet ski scams if you break them, you don’t get racked up with a big bill. However feel like James Bond cruisning or speeding on the flat waters in the sun for your exciting adventure!

 

 

  1. Kiteboarding (The Heart Racer)

Harnessing wind power to ‘fly’ gives you a superhuman feeling. You don’t have to be particularly muscular to hold down the kite; it’s harnessed around your waist, so your body weight counters the kite’s power, not your arms.

Lessons – First, you’ll start learning to skim across the water — a skill that takes just a day or two to grasp. Once you’ve got the basics, you can graduate to jumps.

 

 

3. Bouldering (The Dangerous)

Find your own route and jumping and climbing from rock to rock, along the sides of cascading waterfalls surrounded by the thick tropical jungle.

After building up a sweat, discover secret pools and spots along the way for you to take a well-deserved dip.

Tip – Full focus is needed, as some rocks can move beneath your feet! Also you may be having to use your whole body when climbing along a rock with the rush of the waterfall stream beneath you.

 

 

4. Diving (The Time-Flier)

Explore the undiscovered, unknown world of the deep sea. Watch in awe of the beauty of other life forms while going out in the water for an hour feels like only 10 minutes. You will hack into the ‘zone’.

Tip – Day trips for the inexperienced, or courses can be taken for you to have a unique experience that you will remember for the rest of your life!What will you find down there?

5. Parasailing (The Tongue Swallower)

Muster the courage to get lifted higher than the eagles. You will have a beautiful bird-eye view of the whole island and its amazing landscape. Truly mesmerizing!

Tip – To stop your shaking knees, reassure yourself by knowing the equipment, the company and the staff.

 

 

6. Cliff jumping (The Pure Insane)

Standing atop a cliff, stretching arms like wings, staring into the abyss, and jumping off from hundreds of feet into the water below is an experience reserved for daredevils and thrill-seekers. However we don’t want you crazy kids to go flinging yourself of ridiculously high dangerous, rocky waters. Be smart!

Tip – Only should be attempted with people of experience. Know your surroundings, your limits and should be done with friends to minimize risks.

 

 

 

Challenge your physical and mental strength on Koh Phangan by releasing some of that adrenaline into your bloodstream to make you feel alive!

Nevertheless, incorporating extreme sports in to your trip doesn’t fit for everyone. So you choose the activity!
