There’s dipping your toe in the water to try something out, and then there’s getting completely soaked and loving every minute of it.

Feel the rush of the water working in tandem with a rush of adrenaline, as you cut through the rapids of the mighty Colorado River.

Take in the awe-inspiring views of the Grand Canyon from an entirely new perspective as you glide along the calm portions of the river.

But don’t get too comfortable; just around the bend, your levels of excitement will soar as high as the peak of Point Imperial.

Admire the panoramic views of the forest and mountains before taking the ultimate plunge towards the roaring Cheakamus River.

As you plummet further and further down, you are caught, just in the knick of time, by the elastic cord.

It’s an experience unlike any other, and a rush that you’ll never forget.

Imagine being entirely engulfed by thick, lush rainforest, the chorus of jungle life echoing around you as you soar through the air like a mighty macaw.

Glide effortlessly through the canopy of the remarkably green Thai rainforest on a fantastic treetop adventure complete with high-flying courses and sweeping ziplines.

The rush of being up so high, combined with the genuine natural beauty of Chiang Mai, is sure to whisk you off your feet and give you a delicious dose of adrenaline.

We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but humans can’t fly.

We know, we know. It’s devastating information. However, you can come pretty close.

What makes skydiving in Dubai unique compared to anywhere else in the world is the fact that it’s a city jump. In contrast, many other destinations for the adrenaline-pumping activity are hosted in open, vacant areas.

You fly over the artificial archipelago of Palm Jumeirah, which provides you with surreal views of the entire city as well as the Persian Gulf.

5. Edgewalk along the CN Tower, Toronto, Canada
