Everyone deserves to have a good hobby or two. After all, they are perfect avenues for unleashing some much needed creativity. Nevertheless, some hobbies come with an exaggeratedly expensive price tag such as these 25 most expensive hobbies to have.


Ice Sculpting

As the name suggests, ice sculpting involves forming a sculpture out of ice. However, this hobby is not for everyone as it requires expensive ice sculpting lessons and the purchase of ice sculpting tools.


Ballroom Dancing

Ballroom dancing is as beautiful as it is expensive. A ballroom dancing dress can go from few hundred dollars to over a thousand dollars. Then you have dance lessons (which are always expensive) and travel expenses for competitions. When it’s all said and done, you’re looking at about $10K a year.


Scuba Diving

Many people dream of making scuba diving a regular experience. While this activity may be addicting, the price tag may cure that addiction. Basic scuba diving equipment costs around $550 minimum, and getting a certification costs another $300-400.


Model Railroading


No doubt about it; model Railroading can be a very expensive hobby. To give you an idea, a HO scale diesel locomotive can cost up to $300.00 (that’s just one piece to a very complex but beautiful puzzle). With that said, there are ways to minimize your cost such as purchasing from wholesale providers and used accessories, etc.




This extreme hobby is very expensive and may cost around $250 to $300 per single tandem jump or about $1,500 for a package of 7 to 10 jumps (each jump lasting about 3 minutes).
