Extreme adrenaline adventures are something that you should try at least once in your lifetime. They give you exhilaration that makes you appreciate life even more. Once you get a taste of it, you might never want to stop. Thankfully, there’s an endless list of extreme adventures you can do. Below, we list the top ones that you should definitely try!
1. Bungee jumping
Interested in free-falling activities? Bungee jumping might just be the activity you’re looking for. It’s understandable to get paranoid about the straps suddenly breaking during your jump. But that’s something you never have to worry about as multiple staff in these places ensure that all your straps are in place.
Want to know what it feels like to be Superman? Ziplining will take you there. The longer and more elevated the zipline is, the better. Don’t forget to look down. The best part is enjoying the beautiful scenery that’s underneath you.
3. Mountain biking
Mountain biking is one of the more accessible extreme adventures out there, but don’t mistake this for a simple activity. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart especially when you’re doing it on pavement going upwards. To make it even more daring, you can do it on a mountainside. You get to enjoy the scenery while making sure that you don’t die falling off from the cliff. Woo!
4. Tree camping
Instead of camping on the ground, why not tie your sleeping bag to trees? It’s definitely a unique way to camp in the woods with you suspended in air the whole time you’re sleeping.
Mountaineering allows you to see Mother Nature at her best. To make it a true challenge, go hiking for several days. This forces you to carry only what you need as you’ll be bringing your backpack with you throughout the trip.
6. Drive a Porsche
Why not go rent a Porsche and find out what it feels like to drive one of the fastest cars in the world? If you know how to choose between your Porsche 996 exhausts and pipes, you might just end up with a Porsche model that gives you the best drive of your life. If you don’t know how to drive one, you’ll be trained by highly experienced Porsche drivers who will train you on cornering, avoiding skids, and split surface braking.
Skydiving is almost synonymous with adrenaline adventure. You can’t be a junkie unless you have tried it yourself. You’ll be launched out of an airplane and plumet through the air on a breathtaking free fall. You might not even feel like you’re falling at all. Once you unfold the parachute, you’ll be able to take a deep breathe and this time, actually appreciate the beautiful view around you.
A great way to beat your fear of water and heights at the same time is canyoneering. Basically, you go through multiple canyons through different methods whether it’s cliff jumping, climbing, floating, or swimming down the river. It’s a challenge but you are guided every step of the way.
9. Shark cage diving
In the mood to become predator food? Okay, maybe that doesn’t sound as fun but if you’d like the ultimate adrenaline junkie experience, you can go shark cage diving. This is where you step into a cage to be submerged underwater while the crew throws fish head and guts on sharks around you.
10. Water rafting
Be prepared to get wet for this one. Grab a paddle and go through some of the most turbulent waters. There are plenty of variations for this and the difficulty depends on your comfort level. There’s ones with multiple turbulent rapids while others are as calm as going through an underground river. Take your pick.
11. Dog sledding
Nothing brings you closer to winter scenery than dog sledding. Stand or sit behind four powerful husky dogs as they pull the sled at full speed under the freezing weather. The dogs used in this activity are quite the intelligent as they can respond very well to the driver’s commands. Be sure to check the background of the company arranging the activity before participating in any dog sledding activity. You want to make sure their animals are humanely raised and trained.
Nothing ruins an adventure faster than an unexpected accident so make sure to get proper certification or training before partaking in any of these activities.
