Are you bored of heading on trips where you do nothing but sit around or see the sights? It can all get a little dull after awhile, and you start to yearn for something more. It might be time for you to start looking for trips that offer you some genuine thrills and excitement. Here some ideas for great destinations to consider.
Patagonia, in the south of Argentina, is one of those places that every thrill-seeker has to visit once. And probably more than once. The natural landscape is your playground, and you can spend weeks exploring it and still not appreciate everything it has to offer. Skiing, mountain climbing and exploring glaciers can all be done here. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. It’s a place that is truly unique, so see it for yourself, and embrace everything there is to do.
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Victoria Falls is one of the most impressive waterfalls in the world. But you don’t need to stand by and gaze at it. There are plenty of thrilling things that you can spend your time doing in the area too. Zip lines can be used, or you could go bungee jumping in this magnificent setting. Rafting is a lot of fun as well. Once you’ve done all that, you can explore nature and see the lions and elephants that are located in this part of Zimbabwe.
Israel might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of taking a thrill-seeking trip. But it actually has a lot to offer that might surprise you. For example, the water sports that you will find in coastal cities, such as Tel Aviv, are extraordinary. There are also vast landscapes that are great for intrepid explorers. For example, the Galilee and Masada are particularly popular. If you need to come back down to Earth after all that, you can float in the Dead Sea.
Mexico has a lot to offer explorers and thrill-seekers. You can explore the rugged landscape of Cozumel if you want to go scuba diving or hiking. If you do, be aware of the local air ambulance services. That way, you can get help quickly if you need it. In other parts of Mexico, you can try white-water rafting or explore the Copper Canyon. It’s a canyon made up of lots of smaller ones. To get an idea of its scale, the canyon is about seven times bigger than the Grand Canyon.
Iceland has a very harsh and unforgiving landscape. Many travellers go there unprepared and end up having to get rescued. So, it’s important to be prepared. But as long as you are, there is plenty to explore and challenge yourself with here. There are fjords, glaciers, volcanoes and geysers that pump out steam. The island often feels like one big assault course that throws one challenge after another at you. But taking it on and testing yourself against it can be a lot of fun.
