Sometimes you don’t want to go on a leisurely, relaxed vacation on the beach where you just sip big tall cocktails with little straw hats. Sometimes you want to cheat death, feel an adrenaline rush, and push your body to the max on your traveling adventure. That, of course, requires major muscle, and there’s a gaggle of wacky festivals around the world that provide the perfect excuse to yank your free weights out from under your bed and buy a new pair of running shoes. If you’re thinking about partaking in any of the most physically challenging festivals the world has to offer, as RuPaul would say: “You bettah work!”
These are some of the best festivals that require toned arms, lung capacity, and legs built for endurance.
