5 Adventures That Should Be On Your Travel Bucket List

By DeAnna Taylor


If you have ever wanted to do something a little more thrilling, check out these ideas to add to your travel bucket list. They are sure to get your adrenaline pumping on your next vacation.

Shark Cage Diving

We are just going to jump right into one of the most adrenaline pumping things you can do while on a trip. Get up close and personal with some of the most dangerous animals in the world while being suspended in a cage underwater. There are many places to do this. The most notable spot is in Cape Town, South Africa. If you aren’t brave enough, most companies will allow you to stay in a boat and get a glimpse of the sharks from a safer place.

Not to be confused with skydiving, paragliding requires you to run off of a mountain or cliff. You are typically strapped to a guide, so you don’t have to worry about controlling the parachute on your own. You are sitting on a makeshift chair as you glide through the air via a large parachute. Paragliding is offered all over the world. Be sure to choose a place that will give you an awesome view as you float back down to the ground.

Extreme Hiking

If you want to kick things up a notch, find a place with some awesome hiking trails. You can hike literally anywhere, including your backyard. So challenge yourself with a longer hike or one that requires you to put in more effort to get to the peak. Make sure that you are physically able to withstand the elevation before you venture out. Also, be prepared with water, proper shoes, and layers because the temperature can change the higher you go.

The most sought-after adrenaline rush comes from jumping out of a moving plane. As you climb up to 14,000 feet off the ground, you start to question why did you decide to do this. Once you jump, all fear goes away as you free fall and then launch your chute. One of the prettiest places to take such a jump is in Dubai overlooking the Palm.

Ride Underwater Scooter On The Ocean Floor

If you have ever been to a tropical destination, you have likely snorkeled at some point. Well, you can kick things up a notch by renting a scooter to ride along the ocean floor. It is similar to scuba diving. However, you are on a motorized water bike. It takes off some of the work of swimming the entire time and still gives you the same view of ocean life that you would get from scuba diving. One of the most known places for this is around the Cancun, Mexico area.
