Whether you’re hitting one of the big milestone birthdays, or just feel like going wild with a few friends, there is no better birthday treat than a brand new and unique activity. We all enjoy having fun in bars, pubs, or clubs, but sometimes you crave something slightly special for your big day. This year, dare to do something different to celebrate, and you may set the trend among your friends.

Ready, aim, fire!

For a birthday gathering with a twist, why not try paintballing? This activity is an excellent opportunity for a group to get together and have fun, and you may even get a workout at the same time! Teams can be built with around 15 people, meaning that this is the perfect task to get all of your family and friends involved, and can cater to a variety of ages. As a bonus, you can hit the bar afterward before the bruising starts to ache.

Get up close and personal with your liqueur

If you are a fan of craft beers and ciders, why not get to grips with your drink by checking out Niagara beer tours? These offer a fascinating insight into just how your favourite drink is created, and often offer free samples as part of the experience! Companies will often provide a whole package for birthdays and other occasions, and this can be a great way to spend your special day.

Dare to dive

For some of us, birthdays have us feeling all nostalgic and worrying about the things we didn’t do. Make sure everything is ticked off your bucket list by participating in a birthday skydive! If you are feeling brave, this can be a great way to mark your birthday and is guaranteed to be an experience you never forget. Don’t panic—you will usually be attached to an instructor as a newbie, and you can even treat yourself to the video footage afterward!

Back to basics

Sometimes, after a busy year, you just want some time to sit back, relax and enjoy the simple things. A beach bonfire can be an unusual yet satisfying birthday treat and allows you to plan the logistics just the way you want them. Ask your friends to bring the beer, and arrange for a barbeque by the waves. This option is a relaxing and enjoyable way to mark your occasion, surrounded by your favourite people in a beautiful location.

Fly with me

For a birthday you will never forget, why not ask your nearest and dearest to treat you to a flying lesson? See the skies for yourself, and experience the thrill of flight in a whole new way. This choice is a fantastic way to spend a birthday, and may even spawn an entirely new interest and hobby! You will usually be able to purchase a couple of hours, leaving you with plenty of time to hit the bars, unwind, and boast about your new skill!
