The Isle of Wight is well known for its slow pace of life and relaxed atmosphere, but could you imagine paragliding from a clifftop, ride an exhilarating speed-boat through the crashing waves-off The Needles? How about circumnavigating over 500 miles of stunning paths and coastal walks around our quaint island or try something a little more unusual and Segway around some of our historic towns and villages.
