You work hard and take risks. You are craving for a vacation that matches your curiosity and desire for adventure. You want to explore new places and experience more fun, more exciting and more heart pumping activities. If museum hopping and city tours just no longer cut it, maybe one of these adrenaline rushing activities will bring out the life in you.
1. Heli-Skiing (British Columbia)
When snowboarding gets too ordinary, you know it’s time for something new—Heli-Skiing. Rather than gliding up the slopes of Whistler on a ski lift, hop into a helicopter that will fly you all the way to the top, where you will have to jump out and land on the slope. If this does not qualify as an extreme sport to you, we don’t know what else does.
2. Sky Diving (Hawaii)
It’s no surprise that skydiving is one of those adventures thrill-seekers wish to experience, but where to do it? In the tropics of Hawaii, of course, where you will be offered with a magnificent view of the entirety of the island as you are freefalling in the air. Not only will you satisfy your craving for thrill, but you will also get to enjoy a wonderful view from a one-of-a-kind vantage point.
3. Shark Cage Diving (South Africa)
While being the bait for one of the world’s most deadliest animals isn’t exactly your our idea of fun, some people truly love leaving their lives dangerously—we do not judge. If you want to experience being a shark bait, there is no better place to go than at the great white shark capital of the world—Gansbaai, South Africa. The adventure begins with you in a cage and getting lowered into the shark-infested waters, where you get the chance to see great white sharks in all their glory as they slam and lunge at your cage.
4. Formula Rossa (Abu Dhabi)
Roller coasters may not sound as thrilling anymore, but this one isn’t your average carnival coaster ride. Formula Rossa, the fastest roller coaster in the planet, is the Ferrari of roller coasters, with a top speed of 250km per hour. You’ll be asked to wear protective goggles, like the ones used by skydivers, to protect your eyes from risk of collisions with anything in the air that could harm your eyes at high speed.
5. Bungee Jumping (New Zealand)
New Zealand’s Kawaru Bridge is the birthplace of bungee jumping. At 43 meters high, the bridge definitely makes for an exciting bungee jump. For more than 25 years, thrill seekers from all over the world travel to Queensland, New Zealand just to bungee jump. If planning for an action-packed vacation, Kawaru Bridge could be a good start.
Don’t waste the opportunity to try something new. With the hectic life you’re living, make the most of your every vacation by seeking these exciting and thrilling activities.
