If you are brave enough to try out at least one of the extraordinary adventure sports on this list, I’ll pay for the drinks. These adrenaline-pumping activities are not meant for the faint of heart; I, for one, prefer to enjoy a cold drink and watch others risk their safety. However, adrenaline junkies will probably enjoy every second of the incredible rush and unique experience that they ensure. Check it out!
10. Bungee From a Helicopter
Regular bungee jumping is definitely a thrilling experience, but bungee jumping from a helicopter sounds even more exciting. Before you try your luck at jumping from moving helicopter, you should probably practice stationary jumping first. Don’t go Navy Seals to quickly, OK?
Surfing is an amazing extreme sport that keeps the mind focused and the body toned. Highly accessible, this sport can be practiced in all corners of the world as long as you have a good board and some decent waves nearby. Be careful, people also die every year.
Skydiving involves jumping out of a moving plane. As crazy as it sounds, it takes a while until you finally reach the ground, which means that you are able to feast your eyes on the extraordinary panoramas that surround you on all sides during the fall. Will the parachute open, though?
Parkhour requires stamina and focus, but it also allows you to push your body to the limits and see what you are really capable of. You don’t really need any special equipment, just a lot of training so that you may tackle urban obstacles with relative ease.
6. Mountain Boarding
Mountain boarding is a modified version of skateboarding that involves you riding a skateboard that features large wheels. You can ride that bad boy down hills or on dirt tracks for a fantastic rush. Watch out!
5. Cave Diving
Cave diving is a little bit more difficult than ordinary diving since you don’t have a lot of room for maneuvering. Cave diving is basically the exploration of a underwater cave using artificial lighting and special equipment. Claustrophobes keep away!
4. Mountain Biking
You’ll need a sturdy and reliable mountain bike in order to practice this sport. You can ride it across unwelcoming terrain such as off road tracks or mountain roads. Pedaling is time consuming, burns calories and can also be fun.
Para gliding starts off on the ground on an elevated position and then takes you across the skies smoothly and rather calmly. You’ll be able to enjoy extraordinary sights and thrilling sensations. The ideal places for practicing Para gliding would be at the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany or Chamonix in France.
2. Canoeing & Kayaking
Kayaking can even be practiced within caves or on narrow river mouths. You would need to be a good swimmer if you want to practice this sport, since accidents are known to happen.
1. Glacier Climbing
You’ll need to be in shape in order to be able to practice glacier climbing, not to mention the fact that you’ll need to master wielding ice axes. If you are thinking of starting off on this path for the first time, we strongly recommend doing it with an experienced guide.
