Are you preparing for your next travel trip? If so, then you might want to explore some of the most incredible activities that are certainly going to make memorable experiences. Here are a few examples that you could add to your list of things to do next time you take a trip. There’s even a few for the daredevils and adrenaline seekers.
If you love adventure and a huge rush of adrenaline rushing through your body then you should try bungee jumping. This is when a springy rope (the bungee) is tied around your ankles or your middle, and you throw yourself off a cliff or similar. Usually done over water, this amazing adventure will leave you wanting more. Not recommended if you have a fear of heights, however, there are some truly beautiful places to bungee jump including the Verzasca Dam in Ticino, Switzerland which you may recognise from films such as James Bond’s GoldenEye. You can also bungee jump off of Bloukrans Bridge in South Africa. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will leave you wanting more.
If you are more daring, then you could also think about exploring options like skydiving. You have two options when you skydive. You can either jump at a distance of ten thousand or fifteen thousand feet. The difference between this may be less than a minute of airtime. However, that can be significant when you are trying to get the most out of the view and the full experience. If you love the idea of jumping out of a plane then make sure that you choose a reputable company. There are also some Insta worthy locations around the world including San Francisco and Dubai.
Next, you should think about going surfing. This is one of the many water activities that we’re going to discuss on this list. There are plenty of places around the world that are renowned for surfing activities. For instance, if you’re in the UK, then you might be interested to know that Cornwall is considered to be the capital for surfing. Surfing does require a significant level of balance, so you might need some practice before you get to grips with this sport. The first lessons will usually take place on the sand.
You might also want to explore options like wild swimming. Wild swimming simply refers to swimming in a body of water that may not be designated specifically for this activity. This does not mean swimming at a public beach where there will usually be lifeguards and safety measures in place. Instead, it’s more about swimming in rivers, lakes and pools of water or even underwater caves and caverns. As such, you should always research any location carefully and ensure it’s safe. There are countless videos online showing people swimming in areas that they thought were safe only for the situation to change rapidly. There are lots of guides which reveal the best places to swim. Don’t forget, this includes cold water swimming which is supposed to benefit the body and the mind.
You might want to think about going diving while you are on vacation. Diving is the perfect activity for tropical adventure. This is similar to wild swimming but you can be deep under the water. Particularly, if you rent or invest in professional diving gear. You’ll see countless stunning sights and you can think about diving in some of the most beautiful places on earth like a coral reef. There are also specialist types of diving such as cage diving. Do be aware that while this is your best chance to get up close and personal with sharks, it is considered to be a little dangerous.
Hot Air Balloon

The big benefit of flying in a hot air balloon is that it’s such a peaceful experience, it is believed to add at least a year onto your life every time you go up into the sky. We’re not sure if that’s true but the views from high above the world are unbeatable and it’s certainly a wonderful experience not to be missed.
We hope you love these ideas and consider adding them onto your own bucket list. Don’t forget that if you are thinking about exploring choices like this, you will need to fit them into your holiday budget. You’ll also need to make sure that you assess the safety issues and whether you are prepared for the thrill of the experience.
