You’re Bond. James Bond. Alright, not really, but chances are you will feel like the ultimate secret agent when you’re on a wild speed boat ride, zipping through cityscapes in a fast car chase or flying over the Swiss Alps in a helicopter. In this extreme travel adventure, created through the Special Operations Agency, you’ll get to choose your mission and your specialty (from weaponry to espionage), all of which will take you on a tour of beautiful destinations in Europe. This is a travel opportunity for a truly epic adventure, just like in the movies!

Astro Tourism

For a travel adventure that’s out of this world, we recommend looking to the cosmos. Literally. Gaining popularity as a fairly new travel trend are star gazing tours. Just imagine camping in a dessert and exploring the marvels of the universe through huge telescopes. For travellers with the love of exploration in their hearts, this is the perfect opportunity to gaze at stars, spot a few nebulas and maybe even a galaxy. The Atacama Desert in Chile has one of the clearest skies on the planet and serves as a great place for this adventure. New Zealand’s Mt. John Observatory in Lake Tekapo is another top spot for star gazing.

Zipline through Caves

If you’re craving a rush, there’s nothing quite as exhilarating as zip-lining through the crevices of a cave. The caves and canyons in Utah, located in the United States, are a great landscape for this type of holiday, and in particular, the Utah Water Canyon Cave. With spectacular views of the canyons and breathtaking sunsets, this destination is as beautiful and romantic as it is adventurous. Perhaps a great holiday for a daring couple?

Ultimate Safari

A safari excursion to Africa is the closest you’ll be to wild life in their natural, uninhibited environment. On a safari holiday, travellers can camp out among the wild life, live sustainably with what nature provides and become one with the environment. Described as one of the most inspiring and worthwhile adventure holidays, some African safari tours can last weeks and span across the African continent. With its growth in popularity, there are many tours that will take travellers on this adventure- all you need is a wild heart to start the journey.

Volcano Boarding

Extreme sports meets the ultimate holiday, and together, they make a fantastic travelling expedition that takes visitors along the slopes of Cerro Nero in Nicaragua for what is known as Volcano Boarding or Volcano Surfing. Take in a unique and beautiful landscape by hiking up the volcano and then sliding down it on a board. The ride is sure to be thrilling, but for those in fear of the volcano erupting, rest easy: this volcano is dormant for now, with the last eruption occurring in 1999.

Like the inspiring line in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off warns, life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. So what are you waiting for? Grab the bull by the horns, take a leap of faith, let the adrenaline build up and take the ultimate holiday! Motivated by our list? Comment and tell us which extreme adventure you’re ready to take!
