5 ‘I’m A Celebrity’ inspired adventure holidays you’ll want to ‘trial’ for yourself in 2021

If you watch I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and think the challenges look more fun than frightening, then these holiday ideas for 2021 will be your dream trip (and we’re talking about the adventure activities here, not so much eating a kangaroo’s anus).

Of course, it’s I’m A Celebrity time of year again – but this year, Ant and Dec and their line-up of famous faces won’t be eating grubs down under, instead battling the elements at the real-life Gwyrch Castle in Wales. 

The new series has already seen the 2020 show’s celebrities take on cliff abseiling, as well as helicopter rides (snake pits too, but they’re not top of our adventure activity to-do list), while over the years, contestants have faced their fears in epic challenges from skydiving into camp to getting lost underground in the ‘Catacombs of Doom’. If you’re looking to make up for the lack of adventure this year, these adventure holidays will satisfy any thrill seekers in 2021. 

I’m an adventure junkie, get me over there…

Experience jungle survival in Guyana’s pristine rainforest

Travellers looking for adventure in the most natural of settings should look no further than the remote, uncharted lands of Guyana. Around 87% of the country’s territory is dense, pristine rainforest where human contact is seldom and total immersion in raw nature is an inevitability. Guyana’s eco-systems have evolved over millennia undisturbed by human development, meaning that even the most impressive landmarks such as Kaieteur Falls, the world’s largest single-drop waterfall, is completely uncommercialised and can be admired in its rawest form – and all free of crowds of visitors.

Bushmasters, a British company looking to provide exciting, extreme and remote experiences, offers a two-week Jungle Survival trip which takes visitors to the pristine jungles of Guyana. The 14-day Jungle Survival Trip is priced from £1,812 excluding international flights. More info at and

Hike through Menorca’s rugged landscape

Home to an abundance of winding coastal paths, peaks and rugged coves, the varied landscape and dramatic scenery of Menorca make it a prime hiking destination.

Responsible Travel offers an eight-day walking experience on the island of Menorca (including five days of walking). The tailor-made itinerary includes a hike through many of its pristine headlands and beaches, the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and more. The family-run establishment offers exquisite gardens, a pool, and rooms in the converted stables.

Hike the Welsh highland railway trek

New for 2021, you can explore the peaks, ridges and lakes of the National Park of Snowdonia by journeying the length of the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway on foot with Headwater. This self-guided adventure is perfect for those eager to challenge themselves and to put their fitness to the test. Trekking nearly 38 miles in five days, guests will begin on the coast at Porthmadog before heading into the Snowdonia National Park.
