Top 5 Adventure Destinations

Lately, are you feeling like living on the edge? Bored of the same resort getaways? Or just sifting through social media updates of that friend who went swimming with sharks? If an adventure holiday is what you are craving for, we have got you covered with this list of top 5 adventure holiday destinations which promise you a never-before adrenaline rush.
For those of you who find the idea intimidating, don’t worry. You don’t necessarily have to put yourself in harm’s way to feel the thrill of living. All activities are monitored by trained professionals who are there to guide tourists in every step of the way. So, feel free to dip your toes in the water, and take a pick from any one on this list!

Skydiving in Australia


 Although skydiving is not exclusive to Australia, jumping off 15000 feet from the sky, while enjoying a bird’s eye view of the great barrier reef, is a novel experience by itself. Or dive 14000 feet from above Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. This scenic drive consisting of a wonderfully rugged coastline, unique rock formations and marine & forest landscape also doubles up as a popular skydiving location because the 360-degree view of the countryside is just that much more marvelous.

2.  Cliff-jumping in New Zealand

This holiday season, it is “go hard or go home”. Think cliff-jumping, think the highest in the world. The water is crystal-clear, and the terrain is beautifully rugged, that together promises a view to die for. If the thought of such a high cliff intimidates you, Little Thailand is close by, which is an equally beautiful cliff with a much shorter height.  No matter which cliff you choose to jump from, just one glimpse of the sun shining down upon the beautiful blue waters will surely perk you up.

3.   Ziplining in Costa Rica

90% of Costa Rican animals and 50% of plant species in its rainforests live in the upper levels of the trees. To truly soak in the view of all this flora and fauna, we recommend zip lining through the forest canopy. The thick branches more than 100 feet above the jungle floor will serve as the platform, while you explore the forest in all its beauty. Hanging bridges hike or aerial tram tour are other fantastic ways to fully enjoy Costa Rica’s stunning forest canopy views.

4.  Dog-sledding in Finland

For all you dog-lovers out there, this is love and adventure combined at its best. Be prepared to be taken on a ride along the icy slopes by 5 beautiful, strong huskies. The route passes by magnificent mountains, riversides and ancient traveller routes. During the evenings, simply relax under the bright moon and stars and retire into your log cabin or igloo. Sounds straight out of a story, right? This and much more is a reality in Finland.

5.   Biking in France

For all you first-timers out there, this is a little less extreme, but an adventurous option, nonetheless. No, we are not talking about exploring the artsy French cities. Push yourself a little outside your comfort zone this time. Pedal your way from the premier wineries of Bordeaux to the medieval castles of the Dordogne Valley. Witness the great architecture of Avignon or the majestic cliffs of Les Baux. This biking trip along the vast stretches of countryside will surely fill your heart with joy and open your mind to the adventurous possibilities of what lies beyond the conventional urban landscape.

Come on, get your gear on and explore that hidden scout!
