5 Adventurous Things To Do This Summer
The new age of exploration is about self-exploration and seeing how far we can push ourselves to see what we’re really made of. Here are 5 adventurous things to do this summer that makes our summers even more adventurous and even more rewarding.
1. Cliff Jumping
The quickest activity on our list is cliff jumping or diving. It can be done anywhere that has cliffs, gravity, and non-lethal materials at the base of said cliffs. It involves basically no preparation. All we need is a swimsuit and a little bit of courage. There are countless amazing places around the world to do it. One notable spot for this adventure is Rick’s Cafe in Negril, Jamaica, where, if we don’t want to jump, we can have a drink and watch other fools do it instead.
2. Shark Diving
There are many types of shark dives available, from free-diving with huge to cage diving with the infamous great white. The best spot for the latter is around Seal Island near Cape Town, South Africa. Even if the water visibility isn’t great you may get to see the huge predators breach the water as they hunt the area’s many Cape fur seals.
3. Volcano Trekking
Volcano Trekking varies from place to place, mostly because volcanoes vary very wildly in their activity. Haleakala, in Hawaii, hasn’t done much in the past few hundred years, while the scenic volcanoes in Java are more active. One of the best places to go volcano trekking is Mount Etna because of its range of route options and its incredibly active status.
4. The Ice Marathon
The Ice Marathon is for true badasses. It’s a marathon in Antarctica. The race was originally founded for hardcore runners as they could run a marathon on all seven continents, but it’s since become its own thing. It takes place in the Antarctica in the summers, but that still involves constant strong winds resulting in a -20 C windchill.
5. Bungee Jumping
This sport has taken off quite a bit over the last few decades, and can now be done virtually everywhere around the globe. One of the most beautiful and terrifying jumps is over the Nevis near Queenstown, New Zealand. We can jump from a cabin suspended over a gorge, and we’ll freefall for eight seconds.
