Australian travellers are increasingly opting for holidays that get the heart racing. Adventure tourism is all about new experiences and is a great opportunity to knock a few things off your bucket list. While there’s nothing wrong with a bit of R&R, a few exciting activities can help make a holiday unforgettable and a lot more fun. Your personal travel manager can help you plan a trip that combines exploration with exhilaration.
Bungee Jumping in New Zealand
There are very few activities that can generate an adrenaline rush as extreme as bungee jumping. Modern bungee jumping has its origins in New Zealand and this is arguably still the best place in the world to fall from a height. It seems our friends across the Tasman Sea will bungee from almost any platform, with organized jumps available from bridges, cliffs and even stadium roofs! For the biggest thrill-seekers there is the Nevis Bungee in Queenstown. At 134-metres tall, it is the highest in the country. Alternatively you can jump from the Auckland Harbour Bridge for an unparalleled view of the city. If the exhilaration of free-fall sounds like fun to you, there is no shortage of options in New Zealand.
Trekking in Nepal
If you want to see the real Nepal, strapping on a backpack and going on a trek is absolutely the best way to do it. Much of the Nepalese landscape is only accessible via unique hiking trails and as such, trekking is the most popular tourist activity in the Asian country. Nepal is home to eight of the ten highest summits on the planet, but don’t let that intimidate you. While there are a number of very challenging treks for the experts, there is also a vast range of trails for hikers of any fitness level and ability. Nepal is incredibly well set up for trekking with clearly marked paths and guides readily available. There’s nothing quite like walking through the villages and mountains of Nepal.
Diving in Mexico
The Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico is home to some of the best dive sites in the world and many of these are cenotes. For the uninitiated, cenote diving takes place in the pits that form when the roof of a limestone cavern collapses. These natural sinkholes make for incredibly scenic diving. The water in the Yucatan Peninsula is warm and remarkably clear. Whether you prefer snorkelling or scuba diving, the unique experiences of swimming past stalactites, viewing unusual marine life and wading through stunning underground caves are not to be missed.
