Take it to the Limit: TravelSupermarket.com has researched the world’s most extreme adventures.
Just how far would you go to get your kicks?
If you feel like taking on a new challenge that’s really going to get your pulse racing, this is what you’ve been waiting for.
From the world’s fastest zip line in Wales, to storm chasing in Tornado Valley, Colorado, or even bungee jumping into a volcano in Chile, there’s something for every thrill seeker.
And it doesn’t need to cost a fortune, either; the cheapest experience is just $10, for riding the Mieders Alpine Rollercoaster in Austria, where you’ll rush down a track at speeds of up to 42kph, taking in 40 hairpin bends and dropping down 640 vertical metres. And $26 buys you an experience freefalling with SCAD diving in Soweto, South Africa. You’ll freefall backwards 50m with no bungee rope or parachute (gulp), reaching up to 100kmh.
“Obviously, some of these adventures are not for the faint-hearted,” says Emma Coulthurst from TravelSupermarket.com. “But sometimes it’s good to get a little bit out of your comfort zone. And one thing’s for sure: you’ll definitely have a holiday to remember!”
So, if you fancy lake bombing, cliff camping and generally taking on the most challenging activities in the world, this is the list for you. Why settle for every day, run-of-the-mill adventures, when you can go extreme?
