There are many different ways to have fun during your staying in Malta, and doing some sort of extreme sport is definitely one of them.

In our post today, we want to you introduce to our best activities that will make your vacation different from the rest by trying an “extreme” sport while in Malta.

Please fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ride….

A List Of Extreme Sports To Try In Malta

Go Go-Karting In Ta Qali

Located in the centre of Ta Qali, this is the only Go Karting ring you can find on the Maltese islands but where you will experience the best high-speed extreme sport available.

The track is open all year long from 5pm to 11pm on weekdays and from 1pm to 6pm on weekends. Definitely, it’s one of the most adrenaline pumping experience available on the island (especially compared to bocci – Maltese equivalent of English much loved cricket ) and the best way to appreciate a good moment with your whole family.

*Please note the minimum age for go-karting is 10 years old.

Paintball In A Rugged Battleground

For a minimum of a 12 people group, Extreme Paint Ball Ta Qali offers you, at a small price, a five game run of 10 to 12 minutes each. If you think it’s too short, trust us it isn’t!

This paint ball track is very close to the go karting ring we mentioned earlier so we suggest you do the two on the same day. If you want to plan ahead and be sure to get a place on the date of your choice, you can easily book online.

Become A Pilot & Take Control Of A Plane

Piloting a plane is an experience you will never forget at all!

The company “Sky People” allows you to take control of one of their 2 or 4 seats modern aircrafts. Don’t worry; all are equipped with instrumentation aimed to ease pilot training so this is as safe as it gets.

Depending on your wishes you can choose which part of Malta you want to visit: North, around Malta, around Maltese islands or a Premium trial flight which takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes).

If you prefer coming with a partner, flights can be booked for 2 or 3 people and start from 30 minutes with max 60 minutes.

Discover Malta’s Coasts With Your Own Rented Jet Ski

The sea in Malta is relatively quiet during the summer so you can also consider renting a Jet ski to go and discover the many secluded beaches and unspoilt nature which are only accessible by the sea.

For people who prefer not be alone for the ride, some companies offer safari tours with special discounts for groups and family.

Explore The (Many) Underwater Treasures

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, so many diving companies offer you a unique occasion to discover our most famous underwater sea bed.

You will mostly discover amazing reefs, lose yourself in labyrinth caves, and finally, you can take a look at the old ship-wrecks which have been sleeping depth in the sea since the 2 world wars..

Diving companies are all situated in the north of the island, but you can also find many in St Julian’s, where InterContinental, Malta (our 5 star hotel) is located.

Go “Off Road” With A Quad Bike

Malta is mostly occupied by houses and asphalt road although you can have a tour to the most secluded places with a 4×4 or a quad, especially in Gozo.

There you will explore the many scenic routes and enjoy taking pictures of beautiful landscapes in your 4 to 6 seater vehicle. We recommend you to plan a path to follow on your map although you can easily drive from village to village seeing how Gozo is even smaller than Malta.

Definitely an activity for nature lovers! Keep in mind also to respect the local’s way of life and let the nature in the state you discovered it.
