Walking The Dog

One simple hobby that will get you out of the house is walking the dog. Your beloved pooch doesn’t like being stuck indoors so it is down to you to take them out for their daily walks. You can venture just about anywhere with your dog, if they are young enough then they can walk for hours on end. If you live in a particularly hilly, mountainous area then you are lucky. These areas are wonderful for walking your dog and will keep both you and them entertained for hours. 

Travel Blogger

Something else that will ensure you are out of the house and making the most of the great outdoors is being a travel blogger. This is one of the more lucrative hobbies on the list as you will need quite a bit of money or funding in order to do this. However, if you have many adventures booked then you could document these on a blog site. All you will need to make a note of your wildest adventures for all to see and read is a good-quality laptop, an internet connection, and a strong imagination.

Becoming a photographer may be one of your dream jobs, it usually starts with a hobby that then becomes a fully-fledged career. When you are a photographer you can photograph whatever you like, whenever you like. This could be nature or family shoots that take place outdoors. You can grow your portfolio and help out many people with low-cost photographs. It can be slightly pricey getting all the equipment you need, but it will be totally worth it when you see your finished projects. 

Sports Coach 

If you like working with people outdoors then you could become a sports coach. This is someone that helps coach sports teams or clubs from young children to adults. Whichever age group you want to work with, you will need to have a valid police check. This is to make sure everyone is safe at all times. You may need to undertake further training courses to ensure you have relevant qualifications for this hobby. You can find out more about relevant training courses here https://www.osvehicle.com.

Similar to taking pictures, how about you are the one drawing the photographs? There are plenty of places in the big wide world that are calling out to be drawn or painted. Depending on the type of artist you are, you could take a picture of a location and then paint it when you get home. Alternatively, you could stay at the location and draw it or paint it on-site. This is a much better way of capturing the image as you are there and can get everything right with the sizes and colors. You may even be able to sell your pictures to people living or visiting your area. 

Wild Swimming

If you enjoy being in the great outdoors and swimming then you could combine the two. You could take up wild swimming in your local area if you are lucky enough to be surrounded by natural bodies of water. Wild swimming can take place in rivers, lakes, and even the sea. Many parts of the country are located near these bodies of water so you can take a dip whenever you have some spare time. You may think that you can’t go swimming when the weather takes a turn for the worse. This is simply not true, you can go wild swimming whether it is hot or cold outside. Make sure you come complete with a wetsuit when you are swimming in the colder months. 


If you love being outside and want to sleep under the stars then you could take up camping as your hobby. Camping brings you extra close to nature and even sleeping in a tent outdoors teaches you new experiences. You can do this alone or with friends, gather some people together for a fun weekend of songs by the campfire. Make sure you have everything you need for a camping trip and ensure you are only visiting places that have a phone signal. You don’t want the worst to happen and then you are not able to contact anyone. 


Finally, if you love going on adventures outdoors then how about taking part in some geocaching? If you haven’t heard of geocaching, it is the modern-day treasure hunt. All you need to do is sign up for a geocache app and then off you go hunting. You find the caches by using specific coordinates found on the downloaded app. Once you have found the ‘treasure’, mark it down in your logbook and then place it back for other geocachers to find. You can even add your own if you like, all you need to do is place it in a waterproof container so it doesn’t feel the effects of the elements.
