Extreme Holiday Activities in Aruba

Aruba is world famous for its exquisite beaches, calm waters and relaxed atmosphere, but it also provides a rich variety of adventure-packed land and sea activities to satisfy all levels of thrill seeking. Aruba’s coral reefs, intriguing landforms and constant 15-knot trade winds have made it a hotspot for some of the most exhilarating and unique extreme holiday activities in the Caribbean.

Fetch your suncream, let’s go!

Prefer staying on dry land?

Scale the Ayo and Casibari rock formations or explore the “wild side” of Aruba in Arikok National Park, where you’ll find rolling hills of cacti, dramatic coastlines and ancient caves. Enjoy a challenge on one of the many walking and biking trails, or inject a little extra adrenaline with some high-intensity off-roading by jeep or quad.

If you’re into water sports, you’re in for a real treat.

Thanks to our constant trade winds, Aruba is ranked as one of the best places in the world to windsurf and kitesurf. Join the locals as they slice through the glassy water and perform aerial tricks at Fisherman’s Huts and Boca Grandi. You can also enjoy unparalleled parasailing, jet skiing, sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking and much more.

If the deep blue sea calls, book a deep-sea fishing excursion and catch your own dinner.

Fancy a bit of spectacular underwater exploration?

Add a scuba diving trip or a snorkelling adventure to your itinerary. Aruba’s entire south coast is a coral reef, with over 20 diving sites and 11 diver-friendly wrecks, such as sunken planes, a cargo ship and battleships. In fact, Aruba has been called the wreck-diving capital of the Caribbean.
