Best travel expeditions for adrenaline junkies 0 3020

From nail biting journeys, white knuckle rides and near death experiences, these adrenaline fuelled activities are bound to make your heart rate fly…

From dull to almost deadly. We all now live in more or less safe, boring, simple communities with routine desk jobs, heads in our phones, computers, tablets. I am writing to all those with a desperation to experience excitement and let loose. Do something out of the ordinary…

As life gets more boring, more and more people are craving adrenaline fueled experiences. Grab your suitcase and travel accessories and come on a journey to excitement. I am going to create a list of thrilling activities that you can do around the world. I am going to put them in order, 1-11, 1 being just ‘thrill seeker crazy’ to 11 which is ‘crazy-crazy’.

Dinner in the sky, Worldwide

Try not to fall off your chair, this luxury dining table suspended over 100ft in the air. For a slightly milder thrill, watch the world go by alongside a delicious meal suspended in the air. The company ‘Dinner In The Sky’ also offers Beach Bar and Opera in the sky.

Hot Air Balloon Ride, Turkey

Not only is this a truly exhilarating experience, but riding a hot air balloon in Turkey is probably one of the most beautiful phenomenons you will witness. If you’re scared of heights, this is a little bit of a challenge, as you can reach between 1,200 and 3,000 feet. But we urge everyone to try this at least once in your lifetime, as when you are up in the air, everything seems so peaceful.

Devils pool, Zambia

This one looks scarier than it is. I think. Do it for the gram and get a selfie at the edge of a waterfall. Why not?

Rickshaw Run, India.

Why not tackle some of the most dangerous roads in India? This is a 3500 km trek across India. Not only will you be dealing with some extreme environments you will have to complete this run in a Rickshaw….

Lets just say there is no guidance, no support or guarantee you will make it to the end.

Have fun.

Cage of Death, Australia

There’s room for two at the Cage of Death. Surrounded by some very friendly crocodiles, you and a friend will be lowered in a cage to…well…death.

Storm Chasing, USA.

100% money back guarantee if there’s no storm…

When most people run at the alarm or warning of extreme weather, these run towards it. This lengthy trip is bound to raise your heart rate as you follow the dangerous conditions as they travel around the USA.

Edge Walk, Canada

Cling to the edge of the CN tower, Toronto 1,500ft in the air. You will be totally safe with all the relevant safety gear, however just live life on the edge, grab your travel accessories and book a flight to Canada.

Walking Safari, Zimbabwe

Try not to get eaten by lions. This thrilling experience includes a tour of the National Park like Hwange, full of just the regular wildlife like lions, cheetahs, elephants and rhinos.

Don’t worry a fully armed guard will be accompanying you.

River Rafting, Uganda

With the right safety instructions, it’s not totally dangerous. I advise you wear a life jacket and a helmet. You should be ok…

Paddle through grade 5 rapids (most gnarly) and if you do fall out, no worries, just pray you find your way back to the top.

Kokoda Track, Papua New Guinea

Try not to die of natural causes like several others…

You’d need a few more than just the basic travel accessories. 96 km in a dense jungle with hot humid conditions may be your idea of fun. This truly wild experience makes things even more exciting.

Base Jumping, Norway

Now this is crazy-crazy, jumping from the edge of a cliff with nothing but a special suit. Your aim is to get as near to the ground without hitting it at ridiculous mph. This lot are frighteningly brave!

Good luck.
