Ten Places for People Who Misinterpret Adventure as Fun

Posted on March 1, 2010 | Top 1024 Comments

Some people like a serene tour through beautiful coasts, while some people like to challenge the pride of nature. If you think you fit in the latter team, here is a list of top ten places, where victory is unheard and adventure is a synonym of death.

10. Antarctica

If you think you have mastered every quest, head down south. Antarctica is a place where swimming with seals is fun, but water can freeze your blood. Climbing a peak is entertaining, but the ice can throw you down, 2000 feet down. However, don’t fret because this place also has many professional adventure-providers for novices. This are the best places for top ten adventure vacations.


9. Australian Outback

For those you don’t like adventures, this place is a dead, inert area. And if you get this feeling, get out of here because this place requires experience, professional guides, knowledge, and braveness. The 40,000 years old desert may seem to be a dead area but it offers numerous adventures.

8. Grand Canyon

This enormous structure doesn’t need much introduction. It is one of the most imposing structure man will ever encounter. It is around 18 miles wide, 277 miles long, and 6000 feet deep. A helicopter ride is enough to explore the vastness and conceit of Grand Canyon. Very few will get down the helicopter to endeavor any audacious escapade.

7. Alaska

The best way to explore the chilly corners of this continent is sailing though a small ship, instead of a cruise ship. These diminutive ships moves through corners and places where a cruise can enter. Hence, such tours, though not really an adventure, brings you very close to the artifacts of nature. This place also has some very wild rivers of the world, do you want to try river rafting?

6. Africa

If you adventure itinerary involves wildlife safari, what else can be better than jungles of Africa. Many such tours are offered by locals in Burkina Faso, Morocco, Egypt, Tanzania, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Cape of Good Hope, and Mali. Along with wildlife adventures, there are many other adventure you can indulge. So, do your research before you head toward Africa.

5. Peru

Everyone who has been to The Inca Trail would agree with me if I say this 35-mile trail is probably the best hiking destination on earth. A strenuous 5-day adventure leads you to coarse fortress of Machu Picchu. And for those who are too busy to know about this place, Machu Picchu is ranked among the Seven Wonders of the World. Hey, the journey has just begun. Peru has much more to offer with presence of Amazon Basin, Andean Islands, Atacama Desert, and Lake Titicaca.

4. Galapagos IslandsGalapagos Islands

This is a small group of islands in Pacific, which offers adventures both from water and land. Tourists, scientists, and adventurers always occupy the popular destinations of these islands. Why scientists? This place is home to many plants, trees, and insects that are really bizarre and not found anywhere else on earth. Another surprising thing – although it is located on the equator, you can effortlessly spot albatrosses and penguins, and there are no coral reefs.

3. Around the world

This isn’t a location. If you are a daring adventurer, slip into your trekking shoes and travel around the world and explore your own audacious locations. Don’t forget to carry some communication device and canned food with you.

2. Sky Diving

There isn’t any place on earth where you can’t find sky, except you are hidden in a cave. For me, skydiving is one of the most entertaining and courageous adventures ever introduced. For people seeking more courageous things get a blend of skydiving, bungee-jumping, and white water rafting.Mount Everest

1. Mount Everest

If you can conquer this peak, you probably have the right to rule the world. In short, this is the most dangerous, most enthralling, and most courageous adventure of the world.
