Our Top Travel Destinations
Possibly the only thing we love more than sporto boots is travelling the world wearing our sportos! We’ve covered many of the various uses and reasons to wear your duck boots in different climates, the hot, the cold, and that most treacherous type of terrain, woodland and jungle areas where the temperate atmosphere and frequent rainfall make the ground muddy and slippery, causing there to be a lack of grip on rocks and making you unsure of your footing. However, we thought it was about time to try and give you better ideas for where to travel to and why.
What we’ve done is given a short top 5 run-down, but the key here is every location offers sportos and indeed any rain or duck boots different challenges!
Sporto Boots Top 5 Travel Destinations
1. Hiking Singapore
Bukit Timah, the highest point in Singapore and a trail of the Singapore National Park offers sportos a fantastic opportunity to shine – the 2 hour hike is nothing too hard, and most of the route up is paved making it nice and easy to walks however, the weather and climate in Singapore means that the ground in the park is almost always quite wet, and the steepness means the tarmac becomes monstrously slippery. It wont take you long to get to the top, but the humidity and heat means it’s nice when you get there.
2. Sand Walking in United Arab Emirates (UAE)
The UAE is 12? Countries, the largest of which is Dubai. Many people do these tours from Dubai and frankly, they are a great idea. Head out to the UAE (an hour and a half drive from Dubai) and try sand walking and sand surfing. Your sportos might feel a little heavy as you walk through the sand but they will offer a high level of protection!
3. United Kingdom
The good old UK has plenty of places to hike and walk and your Sporto boots will enjoy the trip too for sure – a highly recommended but simple trail would be walking Box Hill in Surrey, just south of London.
4. Gulfoss, Iceland
Head down to Thingvellir National Park in Iceland, around a 1 hour drive from Reykjvavik, Iceland’s capital. By the visitor centre in the national park you will find the breathtaking and awe-inspiring Gulfoss Waterfall. The area where it is situated is pretty snowy and so sportos make the walks up and down long rows of rickety looking wooden staircases a lot more appealing. If someone you didn’t see jumped out and said ‘boo’ I think there would be a much higher level of reported deaths.
5. New Zealand
Pretty much all of New Zealand is beautiful – where you choose to go depends totally on you. Both the North island and South Island have distinct attractions, but if you’re giving your Sporto boots a workout we’d definitely head to the South Island – Queenstown is the destination of choice and features the worlds’ highest bungee jump! That aside, get yourself out on the road in a camper van and drive / hike through much of New Zealands amazing and beautiful scenery.
