Adventure Travel Activities

White Water RaftingThere are many different options when it comes to having a travel adventure. Whether you travel near or far, let’s look at some different, cool activities you can include in your vacation itinerary.

Bunjee Jumping is an exciting start. This is not for the faint of heart. But there are many different locations throughout the world where you can bunjee jump off a bridge and get a heart-pounding experience of excitement and thrills.

A little more sedate activity would be Hot Air Ballooning. This is an adventure, and it can also be a meditative, serene experience, looking at the world from a totally new perspective. You cannot steer one of these. You go where the wind takes you. It is very quiet up above the ground.

On almost the other extreme of that you will find Adventure Racing. You can take a course which will teach you to race an Indy type of car on a race track at speeds approaching 200 miles per hour. There are many safety precautions built in to this service. But with proper training and precautions, you can experience the thrill of a lifetime, pretending to be your favorite Nascar or Indy driver for a day, and feeling what it’s like in their seats.

Of course, there are wild animal safaris. You can’t imagine what it is like to see an adult giraffe up close. They are huge, majestic creatures. Or a field literally covered in zebras, running across the plain. Watching a lion chase its prey. Or seeing an ostrich run. These and many more sights will amaze you and thrill you when you go on a safari.

Some other activities which you can do in many places include skydiving, scuba diving, surfing, hiking and biking. Other options are zip lining, white water rafting, rock climbing, snow skiing and canoeing. All of these are great adventure travel activities. They provide a broad range of levels of danger, need for preparation, and risk-taking.

Going to a dude ranch for a weekend or a week is another excellent opportunity for: 1) getting out and seeing part of God’s beautiful creation, 2) creating opportunities for bonding with family or friends around shared experiences, and 3) doing things you don’t normally get to do around your house!

These are just some of the activities you can pursue on an adventure travel vacation. They sky’s the limit, really. You can include anything that sounds fun to you in an adventure travel trip. And there are lots of places that will be perfect for that activity, and will provide all the accommodations you need to be able to enjoy doing what you want to do.
