There are many different ways to travel, depending on one’s taste and capability. You can choose to have guided tours for the whole duration of your trip, you can spend months exploring a place on your own, or you can allow yourself to get lost and discover places on your own pace. There are travelers who embark on a spiritual journey, some to learn about a certain place’s history, and there are some who consider meeting new people as a priority.
Then there are the ones who look for the dirt and try the extreme—the ones who really wouldn’t last long looking at museums or buying souvenirs; the ones who pass through the rough roads and explore the more dangerous side of a place in the form of extreme sports. This feature tackles the places where extreme sports are popular attractions; places that millions flock every year because of promises of adventure and non-stop action.
Base Jumping in Norway – The more correct way of spelling it out is “B.A.S.E.”, which translates to the four spots from which you can start your jump (Buildings, Antennas, Spans, and Earth). Although there are many spots where BASE jumping has been dubbed illegal, lots of daredevils are always still up for the challenge. Go to Lysefjord in Norway if you’d like to experience one of the best BASE jumping experiences you can ever get. You’ll also be glad to know that this part of country (at the Kjerag in Lyseford), remains legal.
Skydiving in Namibia – there are lots of amazing skydiving destinations in the world–in Hawaii, New Zealand, in Switzerland–but if you would like to jump on a unique scenery, go to Namibia. This country offers a desert jump where you will see no traces of the city–but with a breathtaking desert with dunes. It’ll seem like flying over another planet, which makes it all the more exciting and definitely out-of-the-ordinary.
Paragliding in Nepal – This country is home to the awe-inspiring Mount Everest, so the surrounding mountains are just too spectacular for words. But aside from mountain climbing, Nepal is also famous for paragliding. In the city of Pokhara, you can go paragliding and be in an enormous mystical backdrop of forests, lakes, and mountains.
Bungee Jumping in Zimbabwe - If you want to mix a breathtaking scenery with a thrilling jump, you will love the Victoria Falls Brige in Zimbabwe. The waterfalls are simply amazing, and plunging from this bridge will definitely be quite an experience.
Windsurfing in Fuerteventura – the Spanish archipelago of the Canary Islands has one of the best weather conditions for windsurfing, that’s why it’s visited by lots of adventure-seekers every year. With a year of warm weather and beautiful Atlantic waters, this is definitely a place to go if an epic windsurfing trip is what you’re looking for. Head over to Fuerteventura which offers windsurfing/trips trips for all levels.
