#9 Canaima National Park
Canaima National Park in Venezuela is a declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The national park is home to Angel Falls – World’s highest uninterrupted waterfalls and Mount Roraima. Mount Roraima is a flat table-top mountain which inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write Lost World. You could either trek to Mount Roraima or take a helicopter ride. The trek is rated difficult and you must be in fit condition.
Not one of the easiest activity but there is a certain amount of thrill you get when you go skydiving. To jump by yourself requires you to go certain hours of training and is risky. However, you may also opt for tandem skydiving where you are tied to a professional. You can pretty much go sky diving anywhere around the world but some of the best places to go are: Dubai, Nepal, Fiji, Spain, New Zealand and Hawaii.
#7 Bungee Jumping
Bungee Jumping is one activity that makes me squeamish but it is a very popular activity amongst adventure seekers. You could pretty much bungee jump in any country but if you are truly seeking adventure then we recommend jumping from Macau Towers, Macau (highest bungee jump in the world). Few of the other popular bungee jumping destinations are Verzasca Dam, Switzerland, Victoria Falls Bridge, Zambia, Niouc Bridge, Switzerland, Bloukrans Bridge, South Africa, Europabruke bridge, Austria and Rod Grande Bridge, New Mexico.
#6 Microlight Flight
Microlight or trike or ultralight is a light-weight open airplane that looks like a flying motorcycle. The airplane has capacity for 2 adults. In order to fly a trike yourself you will need a permit but some aviation clubs offer your microlight flight experience. Zambia, Thailand, New Zealand and Turkey.
If you are scared of heights then skywalk can be a scary experience. But, in general, skywalks are secure – there is a handrail and you feel safe. However, if you are looking for an adrenaline rush then these skywalks are for you. Skywalks built in Auckland, New Zealand, Macau and Shanghai have no handrails. The visitors are harnessed to a overhead rail. Personally, for me, this is one of the scariest adventure trips in the world that I would go to.
If you are looking for a fun and adventure then bobsled is for you. Bobsled or bobsleigh is a winter Olympic sport where you run down a twisted narrow ice track in a motored sled. Get the ultimate bobsled experience at Whiteface Lake Placid in New York. A professional slider will go with you to ensure safety. This is one of the best adventure trips to go to.
#3 Scandinavia by Sled

Plan the tour accordingly as there is only 4 hours of sunshine during winters in Scandinavia.
Did dogsled excite you? If yes, then skijoring will equally excite you. Skijoring is a winter sport which is a combination of ski and sledding where you are pulled by a dog or a horse. If you want to experience this one of a kind adventure trips in the world then head to Norway or Finland.
