Traveling to a place, any place, where you can relax, lie on the beach, read your magazines, go sightseeing and do nothing, is quite great! For people who work 24/7, this is just the thing they need. Alas, there is a problem – does that sound a little bit boring? Doing nothing is quite all right, but what about those who prefer jumping, running, being crazy and active on their vacations? What is an adrenaline junkie to do when asked to do nothing? Well, there are some destinations in the world where you can combine your holiday and adventurous spirit and get the best of both worlds. There, you are given plenty of opportunities to explore your wild side, yet still remain in the “vacation mood” all along. Here are some of the suggestions you might want to take into consideration.
CENTRAL AFRICA: CRAZY LOVERS’ DESTINATION
After a spectacular wedding, you must have an even better honeymoon to start your married life in the best way possible. And what better way than going on an adventurous honeymoon in Africa? This is just one of many possible honeymoon destinations for these kinds of couples, but it might be the most daring one. Africa is just like nothing you have ever seen, definitely!
Among other things to do here, you can go on gorilla trekking, kayaking, hiking, mountaineering, balloon riding, horseback riding, scuba diving and even hunting in special game reserves. Depending on which region you choose, Africa will also prove to be good for your health as the air here is much cleaner than in overcrowded cities.
NORWAY: THRILL SEEKERS’ HEAVEN
If you are a true thrill seeker, you must consider visiting Norway. This wonderful Scandinavian country is rarely known for its tourism world-wide and people usually ignore it thinking that the temperatures are too low and the winds too harsh, but this is far from the truth. Norway has a lot of natural beauty and manages to make the most of it – that is why it has become one of the base jumping capitols of the world.
Besides various other options available all over the country – fishing, hiking, skiing, safari, rafting and even dog sledding! – Norway’s Kjerag mountain provides novice and expert base jumpers a chance to follow their passion. Set about 3,500 feet above the Lysefjord fjord, this mountain’s peaks are a challenge only the bravest can endure.
DUBAI: DIVE AND ENJOY
Even though skydiving is similar to base jumping, this Dubai-based adventure will be diametrically opposed to what you can experience in Norway. Why? Because of the setting! Dubai is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and skydiving above it will give you a view no other place can match. But, this escapade is not for everyone.
Diving from 13 thousand feet may not seem too hard at first, but it does require a certain level of physical and mental preparedness. In order to fully enjoy the view of Dubai’s Palm Islands, you must be ready and, if you feel you might not be, be sure to contact a personal fitness trainer from Dubai who will get you into shape in no time. But, your efforts will pay off in the end – this is a unique experience that you are going to wish to repeat over and over again!
Depending on how adventurous you are, some of the other things you could consider are cliff diving in Mexico’s Acapulco Beach, white water rafting in Chile and volcano boarding in Nicaragua, as well as adventure parks in various USA cities. All of these will boost your adrenaline and make you appreciate nature, and your own life, even more.
