Top 10 most adventurous places

When most of us think about going on vacation it’s usually with a nice sandy beach in mind or a quiet spot where you can relax. It’s not everyone that has those dreams though, as there are folks who go out of their way to seek out crazy adventures during their trip ([intlink id=”1190″ type=”post”]how to discover adventures close to your place[/intlink]). The idea of adventure trips have become so popular there are now travel companies that specialize in providing a unique holiday experience for the solo traveler and groups. If you have grown tired of following the same holiday routine year after year, then you may want to look into some of these trips, which many might very well consider to be crazy adventures.

 

1. Pamplona – A holiday in Spain sounds like just the sort of thing to help you shed away your worries and just enjoy a few days in the sun. That is unless you’d sooner have a herd of bulls chase you along the streets of the town. That’s exactly what takes place each and every year in Pamplona, Spain. Believe it or not, there is a horde of folks who clamor to that town just so that they can take part in the Running of the Bulls where the goal seems to be simply to make it out alive.

 

2. African safari – A trip to the zoo is always a fun day out, except for the fact that the animals are all locked up behind bars and usually look as though they’d rather be somewhere else. Why not flip that on its head and travel to where those wild animals roam free? African safaris have become incredibly popular adventure trips where you can roam the Savannah in the back of an open air Jeep.

 

3. Grand canyon rafting – The Grand canyon is one of the most spectacular places in the world, but one way to see it from a totally different perspective is to go whitewater rafting down the Colorado River. You’ll become so consumed with rushing the rapids that you might not even notice the stunning scenery that is all around you.

 

4. Arctic Adventure – If you are someone that looks forward to the arrival of the winter months, then you might just find that a trip to the Arctic Circle is something that is right up your alley. You can do a little snowshoeing, a little dog sledding, and get to see the beauty of the Northern Lights up close and personal.

 

5. Mount Kilimanjaro – We all imagine getting to the top of the world’s most famous mountains as something that is completely out of reach. It doesn’t have to be though, and you can in fact choose one of six different trails to hike to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. It can take up to a week to make it to the top, but just imagine the rewards of standing at the top of the world.

 

6. Machu Picchu – The ancient Incan city of macho Picchu is one that is on the bucket list of many world travelers, but its difficulty to reach is what makes it so hard to see. If you are prepared to take a week-long hike along the mountainous, demanding Inca Trail, then you can get to see that magnificent place.

 

7. Desert adventure – While most of us now travel by train or car, there are still parts of the world where the camel is King. Take a trip to Morocco and head across the desert on the ship of the desert while you camp under the stars at night.

 

8. Sail the Amazon – At almost 4,000 miles in length, the Amazon is a river that is a perfect place for those looking for a little holiday adventure. Crazy wildlife hides around every corner, as do villages that rarely see visitors from the outside world.

 

9. Hang gliding in Rio – Most people head to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain when they want an overhead view of Rio, but you can see it in a whole new way by hang gliding across the city. Rio has become on of the most popular destinations for one of the world’s craziest adventures.

 

10. Swimming with sharks – If you have always dreamed of getting in the water with the deadliest of all sea creatures, then the good news is that you are spoiled for choice when it comes for places to do so. Mexico, Australia, and even the good old US of A are home to waters that have sharks as native species.
