The Ultimate Adventure Sports Bucket List

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” Hellen Keller

1. Diving With Sharks

Lets start this list with an astonishing face-to-face encounter with one of the most magnificent animals underwater. Swimming freely with whale sharks or diving in a cage surrounded by other not-so-harmless types of sharks is an exciting and enriching adventure that you’ll never forget.

Beqa Lagoon (Fiji), Guadalupe Island (Mexico), Tiger Beach (the Bahamas), Neptune Islands (Australia) are famous for shark diving, just to name a few of all the awesome places where you can adventure.

    2. Sky diving

    This sport is one of the best experiences you could ever have in your life. For those who do not like the sinking feeling of free fall, sky diving is great, since you’ll only feel a floating sensation, until (hopefully) the parachute opens.

      3. Bungee jumping

      One of the most common of adventure sports, yet a shot of adrenaline that usually takes place in beautiful landscapes around the world. From Victoria Falls, Zambia (364 ft) to Niouc, Switzerland (623 ft) there are tons of spots to try, and if you want to take it to the next level, there’s always the possibility to make the jump from a moving object, such as a hot air balloon or helicopter.

        4. Cavern diving

        Explore beautiful underwater environments with clear waters and captivating geological formations. Inside of a cavern, you’ll have a ceiling overhead, but an entrance and visible light from the sun are always in sight. Among some of the best locations to explore we can name the Mexican “Cenotes” at Yucatán, “The Great Blue Hole” at Belize’s Lighthouse Reef, the Chinhoyi caves at Zimbabwe or the Devil’s Eye, in Florida.

          5. Kayaking Down The River Rapids

          Kayaking down the river rapids or white waters, is incredibly exciting and dangerous too, which is why you need to have some skills before you get in there. Rivers and rapids are rated by difficulty and different types of paddling can be done in this sport.

            6. Speed-Riding

            Imagine launching from a slope with a wing overhead and your skis on, strong winds occasionally allowing you to take off for a few seconds. This sport will offer you the perfect balance between the snow and the sky. The Eiger, a 13,020 ft mountain in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland, is among the most extreme destinations for this and other adventure sports.
