The way we characterize adrenaline activities depends on our extent of thrill-seeking drive. Some people who love thrills are naturally addicted to adrenaline, while others play with their comfort zone, occasionally pushing those bounds.
Some people get their heart rate up by jumping out of aircraft, while others get the rush by standing on top of a mountain. With things finally getting back to normal, perhaps you're ready to travel outside of your comfort zone. Whether you're thinking of ziplining through the jungle or whitewater rafting down rapids, this list is for you.
Sky Bike, Mexico
This bike zip line spans the Cascadas de Micos, one of the biggest attractions in the area, at an 80-meter height in the Huasteca Potosina in the central state of San Luis Potosi.
There are only two more of its likes in the globe, and it is the longest bike zip line in the world at 226 meters. While you cross, you can see the breathtaking waterfalls, deep pools, unique birds, and greenery.
Volcano boarding, Nicaragua
This is possibly one of the most unusual adrenaline junkie bucket list events on this list. Nicaragua is without a doubt the greatest location in the world for volcano boarding.
This is due to the fact that Australian adrenaline seeker Daryn Webb founded the sport here in 2004. When you reach the 2,388-foot peak, you'll have to put on an orange jumpsuit and safety eyewear before leaping over the edge.
The 12-minute drive backwards up the mountain on the rattling Gelmerbahn is an experience unlike any other, with a turquoise alpine lake waiting for you at the end. It is without a doubt the steepest open passenger funicular railway in Europe, with a gradient of 106%.
This engineering marvel, which was first designed to move building materials weighing many tons, now provides an exciting rail journey. Once you've climbed, we advise taking a cruise around the untamed, alluring Lake Gelmer or going on a climb up to the Gelmerhütte.
Basket Boat, Vietnam
The basket boat, also known as 'thung chai' in Vietnamese, is a semicircular bamboo twined watercraft. Vietnam's coastal regions are known for their unique basket boats. According to lore Vietnamese fisherman first used basket boats as a means of evading taxes imposed during the French colonial era.
Others claim that because the boats were more useful than traditional fishing boats, they were created out of need. Since then, the traditional woven thung chai has remained a familiar sight along Vietnam's rivers, and there are several trips that provide eco-expeditions. So be sure to add this on your schedule if you're seeking for some real adventures.
Sand Boarding, Peru
Sandboarding is quite similar to snowboarding, with the exception that you will be in the warm Huacachina desert in Ica, Peru rather than the chilly snow and ice. Unbelievably, the roughness of the sand makes it even quicker than snowboarding! The other significant difference is that you will be on sand rather than snow.
Huacachina has the largest dunes in South America. Many of them provide a unique view of the little Huacachina town as they stand above the center of the oasis. Even experienced snowboarders may find the dunes challenging when sandboarding. If sandboarding isn't your thing, try the dune buggies for an adrenaline rush instead!
Buddha’s Hand, China
Visitors are drawn to these hand-shaped steps in the Gulongxia Scenic Area of Guangdong province in order to feel what it feels like to be cradled in "Buddha's palm."
"Buddha's Hand" is a sculpture at the end of the just-opened Gulong Gorge Glass Bridge in the Ecological Tourism Zone, close to Qingyuan City, Guangdong Province, in southern China.
Bull Run, Spain
Every year from July 7 to July 14, the running of the bulls takes place on a half-mile stretch of blocked-off streets in the center of Pamplona. The bull run is open to everyone who is at least 18 years old.
It is not necessary to register or buy any tickets in order to race. Simply arrive before to 8:00 am to join the fun! Every day, 6 to 10 bulls run the route, and 1500 to 3000 people run alongside them.
Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge
There are many glass platforms and bridges around the globe, but Zhangjiajie may be the most amazing! It is the world's longest and tallest glass bridge, measuring 1,411 feet long and 984 feet high, and it spans the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon.
The glass floor elevates sightseeing to an entirely new level! Warning: although tranquil, it's usually crowded with visitors.
Takabisha Rollercoaster, Japan
There is little doubt that the Takashiba roller coaster at the Fuji-Q Highland theme park in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan, is not for the timid.
This roller coaster, which repeatedly somersaults and experiences abrupt accelerations and drops, is by far the most terrifying. Although the duration of this ride is only 112 seconds, the drop is more than enough to keep riders talking about it for a very long time.
Cage of Death: Crocodile Five, Australia
Crocosaurus Cove, located in the heart of Darwin, offers tourists a one-of-a-kind, up-close-and-personal encounter with Australia's famed saltwater crocodiles. Crocosaurus Cove also has the well-known Cage of Death.
One of the largest saltwater crocodiles kept in captivity may be seen up close in this cage, which is unique in the entire globe. Take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with one of the deadliest predators in the world, whether you choose to go it alone or with a companion.
