Thrill seeking isn’t for everyone; that goes without saying. But for those that are really looking for an adventure there are more than a few options. The real question is just how far thrill seekers want to push the limit. There is, after all, a big difference between bungee jumping and setting up camp at Mount Everest.
Here are some of the most renowned thrill seeker destinations in the world.
Speaking of Mount Everest, yes, it’s an adventure destination that everyone knows. Though, it isn’t necessary to actually climb the mountain to explore the area. Those looking to test their limits can visit the notorious Everest basecamps. A basecamp exists in Tibet and another in Nepal.
Adventure seekers may visit a camp of their choice, explore, and get an idea of what it’s like to truly live life in the most dangerous places in the world. Those that want to climb higher are obviously going to enter onto a whole new level of adventure sport.
Mount Everest not cold enough for you? How about checking out the Arctic instead. The Arctic is quickly becoming a favourite thrill seekers travel destination, especially as far as kayaking is concerned. In the summer months when the Arctic ice breaks up it is possible to take kayaking tours between massive layers of ice. Sure, the rapids aren’t very challenging, but then who wants rapids in water that dangerously cold?
The Arctic certainly is beautiful, it just shouldn’t be expected that there will be any free WiFi to check out a mobile casino Canada in the evening.
From freezing waters to warm waters, Fiji is also becoming a hot tourist destination. It turns out that the salty waters around Beqa Lagoon are teeming with sharks. Which, of course, means that it’s time for adventure seekers to hop in and have a good swim around.
Shark diving is becoming increasingly popular, especially with recent research doing a great deal to dispel some of the rumours surrounding the beautiful animals. There is still going to be an element of danger, but then what is adventure seeking if not looking danger in the face?
Why not turn up the heat even higher in Nicaragua? In fact, why not turn the heat all the way up to active volcano? Cerro Negro is indeed still active, meaning that it spews smoke on a daily basis. But hey, that shouldn’t stop anyone from jumping on a board and sliding down the side.
Not enough excitement? Consider that the sleds hit top speeds of around 48kph. No, there isn’t much chance of landing up in any molten lava, but a very serious chance of falling off and getting some serious road rash.
Or perhaps something a bit more relaxing? As a more chilled alternative adventure seekers can check out the Great Blue Hole in Belize. Sitting at around 100m underwater. Going this deep means that the entire underwater expedition is done in total darkness. Don’t forget a flashlight.
