This is an activity that many might never want to try. Volcano boarding involves zooming down an active Volcano at a high speed of 90km/hr and using your heels to steer & brake. Quite a volcanic ride isn’t it?
Trekking in the Himalayas:
This tough trek requires stamina, but the rewards are immense, exploring villages and monasteries before building up the pace with treks over passes to Stok Kangri base camp in preparation for a night climb. Reach the summit in time to see one of the most spectacular sunrises in the Himalayas.
Downhill Mountain Biking:
Downhill mountain biking is extreme no doubt. This involves biking down the hills with suspension bikes that quickly glide over rocks and treeroots. While the bikes are designed to ensure safety, the risk is immense.
Sky diving is one activity that is on everyone’s to-do list. The thrill of jumping off a plane at 10,000 feet is like nothing else in this world.
A husky tour in Finland:
Explore the Finnish wilderness by snowmobile. This is followed by a two-day husky safari taking charge of your own team of four or five dogs, cooking over open fires and sleeping in a tent or wilderness cabin.
Ice climbing usually involves ascending frozen waterfalls or other ice formations on the rocks with the help of ropes and other special equipment.
Flying a Stunt Plane:
In New Zealand, a regular ordinary every day person can pilot their own stunt plane. At U-fly Extreme you will take the controls of the plane as you fly upside down, dive in the sky and twist and turn until your stomach leaps into your throat.
Don’t worry; you have a trained professional in the cockpit behind you to take over the controls in case anything should go astray.
Race a Ferrari:
In Italy, we have the chance to do a couple of laps at La Modena in a genuine racing Ferrari. With a skilled driver in the passenger seat ready to hit the brakes whenever needed.
