Snorkelling in Silfra Fissure
Get past snorkelling in that tropical paradise – if you want your heartbeat racing and adrenaline pumping, then give snorkelling a try in the ice-cold water between 2 continental plates.
Head to Silfra Fissure, located in Iceland’s Thingvellir National Park, put on your dry suit and dive into that water to have the swim of your life!
The crowning moment is reaching the spot where you can simultaneously touch both Europe and North America. Continue swimming along the fissure till the time you reach Silfra Lagoon – ideal for exploring until the freezing water makes you give up and go back to your van to warm yourself up with a cup of hot chocolate and a bacon sarnie.
Blindfold Driving in the UK
A challenging yet thrilling activity, Blindfold Driving is one of the best ways to test your communication skills along with your friend’s or ability to trust you.
When on the go, all you need to do is set the Land Rover on second gear and let it do the rest – no clutch, brake or accelerator is required until the end of lap, just your “ability” to drive without actually being able to see.
With one member – the one on the driver’s seat, blindfolded and the other having to give clear instructions, you’ll be amazed to see how quickly it is to forget the difference between left and right.
The High Flying Maverick in Gold Reef City
Are you all set to push yourself on the “one-of-its-kind” aeronautical ride? Simply get into the cockpit with three more adventurous pilots and be ready to experience one of the most thrilling rides of your life.
If you’re brave enough to play with that 9/10 fear factor, then you should absolutely give The Flying Maverick a shot. Head to SA’s top-class theme park in Gold Reef City and give that adventure freak within you that much-needed thrilling experience.
Base Jumping – Worldwide
Alright, we get that it requires a huge amount of faith – not to mention sheer courage, to jump off a clip into what may feel like oblivion. Nonetheless, wipe the sweat off your palms, take some deep breaths, put on your wingsuit and ensure that your parachutes are strapped nice and tight, as those are your only saviour when taking that huge leap of faith.
As you hurl yourself toward that impending downfall, make sure you’re savouring that feeling of weightlessness. And don’t forget to keep your eyes wide open to capture that picturesque view that nothing else can truly ever compare to.
Imagine those calm waters and rolling hills as you take flight – now, isn’t that one of the best feelings you’ll likely ever get? But hey, do remember to open that parachute of yours as you want to be able to live to tell the tale.
Opposite Steer Buggy in the UK
Yet another interesting and challenging activity, the Opposite Steer Buggy is by far the best activity when on an adventure day out. This is one of those things which will disregard everything you learnt when learning how to drive and you’ll go against what seems natural to you.
The best part – when you steer left, it’ll go right and vice versa, testing your brain power and reactions. You and your friends will be in fits of giggles, that’s for sure.
Steepest Rollercoaster in Japan
We don’t really know about you, but one look at a picture of this ride makes us go all loco. Those drops, those turns and those loops – you’ll surely be left fighting for breath! But if you’re a true adrenaline junkie, you’ll love every single moment of it.
We do know that Japan is known to be the king of innovation but this “first-of-its-kind” ride does make us question their sanity.
Considered as the steepest rollercoaster in Japan, it has a drop angle of 121 degrees – now, that’s what we call a STEEP dive!
