|Sphering down a hill|
Sphering (also known as zorbing or orbing) is the new adventure activity that has swept the UK and is now here is Spain. Basically you and a friend climb inside a 4m diameter transparent inflatable ball, and after you have been strapped in, you roll down a 150m hill at speeds of up to 50 kilometres per hour!
There are two types of Sphering:
Harness Sphering - the strapped-in version for two people, which is more suitable to the adrenalin junkies looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Aqua Sphering - you are not strapped in and up to three people can simply sit inside the sphere in 30-50 litres of water and you roll down the hill swishing around inside, a bit like being in a washing machine”. It's probably the ultimate water slide.
You may or may not have tried bungee jumping, sky-diving, white water rafting and any number of imaginative ways to get from the sky to the ground, but if you are willing to try something radical, completely different from other adventure sports, then you've got to try Sphering! You will experience the ride of your life!
Sphering is suitable for all the family (over 1m high) and there are numerous sites on the Costa Del Sol where you can participate.
