Heat Score - 80

Camping isn't just about going outdoors and choosing a field to camp in! What I love about the outdoor activity is that it isn't just limited to walking or cycling, but there are a ton of things you can also do when in the water. A favorite of mine would have to be paddle boarding! You'll be surprised at how you can both camp in a quiet spot while enjoying the sweet waters, roaming around various destinations. And it's so simple to do! Just strap on your stuff on the paddle board and begin exploring! Read more HERE.

2. Paddle Boarding County Kerry, Ireland

Heat Score - 87

County Kerry is made up of four different peninsulas jutting out into the North Atlantic. This results in a long coastline of rugged beauty, formed by crashing waves and strong winds throughout the winter months. This also means there are plenty of sheltered spots to pull out a paddle board and start exploring the spectacular coastline in almost any weather condition. Kerry offers a wide variety of paddling locations: from freshwater lakes, to rivers, to sheltered natural harbours and exposed sea cliffs. Local standup paddle boarders have barely begun to scratch the surface of all the possible locations to discover. Read more HERE.
