Travelling means a lot of different things to each one of us – it can be a way to unwind, or a spiritual journey, while for some others it is about quenching their thirst for adventure. A 2018 YouGov Survey has shown that more and more Indians are now keen on adventure destinations:
Given below are top 10 places to visit in the world for a healthy adrenaline rush.
Haiku Stairs in Oahu, Hawaii
Even though there is nothing risky in climbing up a flight of stairs, the adventure lies in the fact that these stairs consist of 3,922 steps. Only someone up for some physical adventure would be up for climbing up almost four thousand steps, especially one where the only support is a hand-rail. The stairs were initially constructed to transmit radio signals to navy ships and are often referred to as the ‘Stairway to Heaven’.
Aquarium in Rangiroa, French Polynesia
If you fancy snorkelling a reef full of colourful tropical fish, then the aquarium in Rangiroa is the perfect destination for you. This open-water aquarium is just a boat ride away from the villages in Rangiroa.
Skydive in Australia
It is easy to understand why this activity made it to our list of the top 10 places to visit in the world for your dose of adrenaline rush. Australia happens to have many spots for skydiving. The most recommended one includes the Mission beach skydive where your freefall from 15000 feet would mean spectacular views of the Great Barrier Reef.
Cliff jump from Queenstown, New Zealand
Does jumping off a ledge sound like your thing? Queenstown in New Zealand is the highest cliff jump, perfect for your adrenaline dose.
New Zealand, however, is prone to tectonic activity. If you are travelling to countries that are especially susceptible to natural or man-made disasters, it is imperative to have the cover of a travel insurance plan, like the Bajaj Allianz Travel Insurance available on Finserv MARKETS.
Jeffrey’s Bay in South Africa for Surfing
Surfing may not sound too adventurous on its own, but Jeffrey’s Bay presents the challenges of gigantic waves. If you surf because it is like meditation for you, Jeffrey’s Bay is a haven for you. The place is known to attract the best surfers in the world who practice and surf like it is breathing for them.
Svalbard, near Norway for literal ‘chills’
Adventure lies in your tolerance of cold – Svalbard is an archipelago tucked in the space between the North Pole and Norway. That explains why it is a chilling adventure. If you do well with cold, you could spot a polar bear!
Trekking or hiking to Machu Picchu, Peru
Machu Picchu was voted one of the 7 new wonders of the world in 2007. Various trekking or hiking trails are available, and the destination provides panoramic views, making it all worthwhile.
Hike along the Milford Track, New Zealand
More than the adventure, the breathtaking views of the waterfall are the center of attention here. It is one of the nine official Great Walks of New Zealand. It is a four-day hike and encompasses lakes, waterfalls, ice fields as it cuts across the Fiordland National Park.
Water Rappelling in Costa Rica
Whether you call it water rappelling or abseiling, if descending down a rock-wall through waterfalls seems like your kind of thing, Costa Rica has some of the finest sites for you to quench your adventure thirst.
Volcano Hiking in Indonesia
Indonesia has a plethora of volcanoes, in fact, the highest number of volcanoes any country has. The dormant volcanoes, that haven’t been active in years, are perfect for hiking. Often the base of the volcanoes has hot springs too. But the real dare in the situation is to do a hike in the night time.
The only advice for someone who likes adventure activities is to take all necessary precautions and to get travel insurance that can cover you in case of unforeseen incidents. For instance, if you were forced to curtail your trip and return to India, travel insurance available on Finserv MARKETS would cover the cancellation of flights or trains, among other things. Once you know you have provided for the worst-case scenarios, you can enjoy your travels stress-free.
