Adventure travel should include as many adventurous activities as possible. Most people can skydive, scuba dive, or bungee jump in areas close to home. You can create the ultimate adventure experience by adding adventurous destinations to your adventure activities. Be aware that these activities are not covered by standard travel insurance, so you may need to purchase a special travel insurance policy for adventure activities.

These are my top recommendations for adventure destinations with adventure activities.

Scuba Diving in Myanmar

This country in southeast Asia has been closed to outsiders for the past half century. As it opens up, you will still be able to see this land and its many cultures before McDonalds, shopping malls, and traffic jammed highways. Mergui Archipelago is relatively undeveloped and diving here will let you see pristine coral reefs, magnificent sea life and the cultural wonders that Myanmar has to offer before the modern world.

Bungee Jumping off Victoria Falls Bridge, Zambia

The Victoria Falls Bridge, located at 111m above the Zambezi River, is one of the most popular bungee jumping platforms. After your heart has settled, you can take a walk safari or a jet boat to the base the magnificent Victoria Falls. Talk to your travel agent about any adventure activities that you are planning to do in Zambia. This will ensure that you have adequate travel insurance for adventure activities.

Go Kite Boarding in Fujian, China

Although Kite Boarding is a relatively new sport in China, it has been greatly adopted by Fujian. Instruction is available for those who are new to the sport. Another great adventure in China is mountain trekking in Tibet’s autonomous area. However, proponents and advocates of ethical tourism might want to reflect on their position.

Hot Air Ballooning In Kenya

Although Kenya may not be the adventure destination it used to be, it is still quite adventurous. Hot air balloon rides can increase the adrenaline level for this trip. You can increase your adrenaline levels by going during the great migration, when millions of African migratory animal begin their journey towards water. To arrange this experience, speak to a destination specialist. You want more adventure? You might like to go on a bush safari with a guide.

Surf Oahu’s North Shore, Hawaii

Although Hawaii may not be the most adventurous place in the world, the north shore of Oahu offers all the adventure that you could want if you are a surfer.

Mount Everest climb in Nepal

Everest has attracted adventurers since Sir Edmund Hillary first conquered it. It is hard to imagine how much a decent insurance policy for adventure activities would cost for this trip.

Swim with Sharks South Africa

Although it is not an exotic trip, the first encounter with a 7-metre great white shark will be a thrilling one.

Zip Line in Cebu City (Philippines

Not adventurous you say? The zip line starts at 473 feet high atop Crown Regency Hotel and crosses over to an adjacent skyscraper.
