Whether you’re an adrenaline seeking junkie or are looking to step out of your comfort zone, here are a dozen adrenaline pumping adventures to thrill you and add to your bucket list.
The way we define adrenaline adventures varies on our level of thrill seeking desire. For some, it means jumping out of a plane, others, it means climbing to breathtaking heights, for others, deep diving and some people might even find driving with the roof of your car down and singing along with some really good music.
I for one will admit that I’m scared of animals. Not the domestic ones (that’s a lie) but the really scary ones. I’ve honestly never been to a zoo yet I see so many videos of people swimming with sharks, playing with snakes and all that. So everyone’s levels of adrenaline seeking activities differ, so I will be showing my top 12 adrenaline seeking activities, and if I might add, they are currently on my bucket list.
Adrenaline adventures; up in the air.
- Sky diving
This is the first and foremost adrenaline pumping activity ever! It’s so awesome to see videos and images of people jumping out of planes and other aircrafts, the cool twists and turns they do at almost 15000 meters high, and just the feeling of flying. Its wayyyy harder than it looks and some people can’t complete the jump or pass out from the shock of free falling, it’s my Numero Uno and I am manifesting going skydiving.
- Cliff jumping
This is sooo cool, it usually involves jumping off a cliff, yeah, I said it, with minimal or no equipment at all and free falling into a body of water. This is a really cool activity to go on, with your friends, take really good pictures airborne, screaming and laughing, might I add that you need to know how to swim before doing this.
Adrenaline adventures; water sports.
Rafting is mainly for people who love water, and would like to be on it, without feeling fully submerged. It involves the use of a boat or an unsinkable raft, and some protective gear like a helmet, and a life jacket. It’s advisable to wear warm clothing, as the water might be chilly, and please don’t forget to wear your protective gear properly.
This sport is one that takes time, and experience to be able to execute. It involves riding a wave towards the shore while standing or lying on a surfboard. Beginners should try by all means, but make sure that you are firstly a strong swimmer that can swim in currents, wear a lifejacket and be with a veteran instructor.
- Jet skiing
Have you seen anyone sad on a Jet ski? Lol, it’s a very easy water sport, probably the easiest to pick up, involving the use of a watercraft called the Jet ski. As well as being a hi-octane sport that thrills an adventurer, jet skiing is beneficial to ones health.
Adrenaline adventures; on foot.
This activity is one that involves a lot of exploring and not as much screaming and shouting. Caving is the explorations of caves and caverns, usually as part of a group and led by a guide. You walk, you climb, and you discover. Fun fact, another name for caving is pot-holing.
- Hiking or mountaineering
Hiking, or mountaineering s it is sometimes called, is an activity that involves long, vigorous trekking on footpaths or trails in the countryside. This is a good activity to sightsee, meditate and also be in nature and around trees and nature. My advices, take a lot of snacks, wear comfortable shoes and stay hydrated.
- Zip lining
I sooooo wanna do this! A zip line, or flying fox is a pulley suspended on a cable, usually made of stainless steel, mounted on a slope. You harness yourself to the cable, and zip from one point to another, usually above trees and grass. Zip lining has a couple of health benefits, provides a sense of accomplishment and gives a thrilling adrenaline rush. It’s very common, and mostly safe. In some parts of the world, zip lining is used as a means of transportation.
Canyoning is a type of mountaineering that involves traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as jumping, rappelling, walking, scrambling and swimming. So, canyoning is a culmination of activities, which require protective gear, and suspension gear.
Adrenaline adventures; auto sports.
- Dirt biking
This is a sweet outdoor sport, its fun to watch and even more fun to participate in, and it’s a great way to explore the outdoors with friends, and get messy in one of the best ways possible. In order to be safe, you need to know how to ride a bike, and develop some skills on a dirt bike in order to have a lot of fun.
- Car racing
Car racing is one of the most competitive adventures you can go on. It makes your heart beat faster, and gives a powerful surge of adrenaline to watch. To compete with others? Another story entirely. This sport is one that will definitely get your blood pumping, and in the right way.
This one is an outdoor activity that I think isn’t talked about much but is just as addictive. Drifting is basically using all the gears, throttle, and brakes and steering to make the car over steer. In other words, you will be in a car spinning in twists and circles, having the time of your life. Drifting can also be used as a form of letting out stress or frustration, so long as the car doesn’t flip, of course.
