Many such holidays include some of the following activities.
There aren’t many activities that gets the adrenaline rushing as much as a skydive, is there? Well now, through the increasing popularity of tandem parachuting, which is a duel harnessed dive, disabled people can get the rush of falling thousands of feet through the air. With a professionally controlled fall, the instructor also looks after the parachute and fall. All you have to do is scream as loud as you can!
The snow provides a number of opportunities for exhilarating activities that get the heart racing, including snowmobiling and dog sledding.

Dog sledding can give you a truly unforgettable experience. Pulled across the snow by dogs, the activity is suitable for a multitude of disabilities.
