Top Destinations to Explore for Adrenaline Junkies
If you’re tired of traveling to resorts, kicking back at the beach and visiting historic locations, maybe it’s time you book a trip that’ll get your adrenaline pumping. From base jumping and skydiving to zip lining and bungee jumping, there are a slew of activities in a variety of countries just waiting for you!
Spend 21 Days Trekking Across Everest
You better be mentally prepared if you want to take on this 21 day hike. You won’t go all the way to the top of Everest in 21 days, but when you make it to Walks Worldwide’s Gokyo Lakes and Everest Lodge Trek, you won’t be disappointed. Explore breathtaking views of the Gokyo Lakes as well as Everest and Makalu. The Khumbu region isn’t completely barren (as you’ll witness) once you walk into the Sherpa villages where you can meet the locals.
Snorkel the Great Barrier Reef in Belize
While thousands of tourists gravitate towards Costa Rica and the Caribbean, Belize is a hot spot for snorkeling. The Belize Barrier Reef has TONS of marine life, making it a truly unique experience – explore the reef only 30 feet away from shore.
Hang Glide in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Look down at Sugarloaf Mountain while while hang gliding in Brazil. You’ve probably seen photos of the Christ the Redeemer statue but now you can soar right over it. If you’re afraid of heights, put your fears to rest as you enjoy a nice tranquil ride over the gorgeous beach of Sao Conrado.
Sled Around Sweden & Norway
Are you a dog lover? If so, team up with five beautiful huskies and sled your way through Sweden & Norway. Not only will you see the picturesque Norwegian mountains, but you’ll also travel through ancient routes, rivers and traditional settlements.
Go on a Safari in East Africa
East Africa has become one of the most sought-after destinations, primarily for its noteworthy safaris. View flocks of flamingos along Lake Nakuru, baboons and warthogs along with a slew of other mammals. Featuring a diverse wildlife, beautiful grasslands, tropical beaches and encounters with massive gorillas, this is a truly can’t-miss experience.
Skydive in New Zealand
There’s no greater rush than jumping out of a plane over 12,000 feet…or is there? Try free-falling over the snow-capped mountains in New Zealand. The world’s largest commercial drop zone in the entire world is Lake Taupo and here you can overlook volcanoes while feeling the wind in your hair.
Regardless of the type of journey you’re interested in, there are plenty of adrenaline opportunities just waiting for you!
