Best day adventures in Singapore: Forest Adventure, Ninja Kayakers, Ryders Singapore, and more
We're stuck in a perpetual ping-pong match against the virus. With rising COVID-19 cases and work-from-home fatigue weighing down on us, things get pretty dreary. There isn't much to do except binge watch Netflix shows or dabble with new recipes. But we all need fresh air sometimes — shutting ourselves away in little domestic holes isn't exactly healthy. Sure, your dinner plans with friends may be cancelled again so why not do the next best thing — day adventures? Exploring our island's greenery is a great way to get some exercise whilst chasing away the stay-home blues. Hop onto a kayak, manoeuvre through obstacle courses and try wakeboarding for the first time. It's time to abandon your screens and embrace the wild side. (Masks on, whenever applicable, of course.)
Featuring Singapore's only treetop adventure course, Forest Adventure promises an unforgettable outdoor experience. Soar across their 300m zipline over Bedok Reservoir and walk through multiple wobbly crossings — all while enjoying a panoramic view of forest treetops. Feel the wind on your face and challenge yourself to some adrenaline-pumping action. If you're a little concerned about safety, don't worry — supervisors are around to guide you how to use your equipment.
Oh the adventures you could have — all on an inflatable kayak. At Ninja Kayakers, you can cruise along water bodies and explore coastal wildlife while crossing over reefs. There's different routes to explore too. Check out their Instagram page for updates on their guided tours. Some of their packages even include lunch by the beach so you can dig into a well-deserved meal after your tiring journey.
Small business Outdoor and Adventures Learning allows you to customise your day out. Choose from a variety of fun activities available. Opt for a simple hike across lush greenery, or if you're in the mood for something a little more ambitious, sign up for their unique stand-up paddle boarding expeditions. Along the way, admire mangroves, discover birds in forested areas and snap some shots of rich marine life. You'll be surprised by what Singapore's diverse ecosystem has to offer.
Whether you're new to wakesurfing or are an expert with the waves, Ryders Singapore has something for everyone. And the best part? You don't need to know how to swim. Their team supplies life jackets for all riders and are trained in first-aid. Get on your surf and ride the waves — a splashing good time awaits.
Explore every nook and cranny of Singapore's largest multi-installation indoor adventure centre. At four storeys high, the 2,800 sqm Adventure HQ boasts of 10 kaleidoscopic installations that cater to different difficulty levels. Conquer their ninja course, experience the thrill of sliding down a 14m slide and rock climb like you're Bear Grylls. You can even defy gravity by trying out their hand-gliding aerial attraction, if that's more up your alley.
