Safari in Jordan

You hear Jordan and your mind doesn’t seem piqued? You should think again because although unfairly neglected in the sea of other thrilling destinations, Jordan offers an array of adrenaline-pumping adventures that will make you glad you booked a ticket to this fabulous destination. If you think about the most picturesque rock formations and waterfalls you saw online, Jordan is actually home to many of those. Aside from the lovely scenery, in Jordan, you can also go camping in the Canyon of Wadi Zarqa.  Go camping in Wadi Rum where you can also experience a fantastic Bedouin safari. For this trip, you’ll need full-on camping gear and don’t forget comfortable and warm boots for a chilly night in the tent.

Scuba diving in Australia

If you’re a water sports lover, then Australia is just the right destination for you. You can go snorkeling, scuba diving and exploring all the wonders of Australian depths. Spectacular marine wildlife will absolutely enchant you, so get your scuba diving gear and go on an adventure of a lifetime. One of the best spots for scuba diving in Australia is by far the Yongala – a shipwreck off the coast of Queensland. From manta rays, sea snakes, octopuses to turtles, bull sharks, tiger sharks, and spectacular coral, you can swim with underwater creatures and explore the vast depths of Australian waters.

Go on a North Pole expedition

Have you ever thought about going skiing on the North Pole? If the idea never crossed your mind, you’d be surprised at how exhilarating that adventure can be. It can take two to three weeks to ski across the Arctic Ocean to reach the North Pole, and if you’re a true adventurer, this will be your cup of tea. Test your determination and endurance by embarking on a two-week skiing trip to reach the top of the world. Visiting a place that only a few people have set foot on will be a one-of-a-kind experience and not to mention the one that only happens once in a lifetime. If you ever decide to take on this adventure, be aware of the freezing temperatures and pack well for an ice-cold adventure.

Backpacking in Thailand

You remember the movie Hangover in Thailand, right? Well, while the experience may not be as extreme as on the silver screen, you can still expect chock-full of fun when you reach Thailand. First of all, Thailand is one of the top adventure travel destinations for backpackers because not only is it cheap, but it also has some of the most wonderful white sand beaches in the world. With full moon parties, golden temples and misty mountains, Thailand is practically calling your name and luring you to enjoy all that it has to offer. Bring together all of your fellow adventure seekers and enjoy the crazy nightlife, and crazy-delicious street eats, ride elephants and experience Bangkok at its best.

Explore India

If India never appeared too exciting to you, we guarantee you’ll change your mind if you book a flight and spend only a day in the Himalayas or the deserts of Rajasthan. The fact that India is so vast makes it one of the most thrilling countries in the world. From the mountains and villages in the Himalayas to the chaotic Mumbai and all the way to the beaches of Goa, you can find a full spectrum of amazing activities that will make your trip to India more than worthwhile. Would you like to ride a camel? Or maybe you prefer animal safaris? Whether you’re more of a mountain trekking person, or you want to go skydiving, experience foodie tours, and photography outings, India has it all.

If you’re looking to start a new one-of-a-kind adventure, some of the aforementioned destinations will certainly make you want to go on another one as well. If time and budget permit, try all of them and make your life more exciting than you could have ever imagined it to be.
