So, what exactly is zorbing? Well, let me tell you that I’ve started writing about half a dozen introductory sentences to explain it — and deleted them all. That’s because ‘rolling down a hill in a big plastic bubble’ just doesn’t do it justice.

And I don’t know whether to describe is as a sport, or a thrill-ride or an adrenaline-rush experience so basically, I’m going to leave it to the videos below to explain 🙂

This – let’s call it an ‘activity’ – originated in New Zealand and today you can try zorbing in several countries all over the world. If you live in England or are visiting the UK, there are several zorbing centres and you can find out more here.

Or try aqua zorbing!
