There are some fantastic once-in-a-lifetime adventure holidays that can be experienced around the world, many based in some of the top port cities in exotic destinations. They are pretty special, the kind of once-in-a-lifetime memories anyone would love to have. Here’s five of the most exciting you could experience.
Shark Cage Diving – Darwin, Australia
Head to the Australian coast to take the plunge into shark-infested waters, with just a cage wall separating you from Tiger Sharks in their natural environment. This is the only location in the world where you can see this amazing breed in its own habitat on an adventure which is sure to provide both an adrenaline rush and a sense of wonder.
Arctic Fishing – Tromso, Norway
Famed as the land of the midnight sun, Tromso is the one of the most northerly cities in the world, and one of Norway’s most popular destinations. Here you can head out to the open seas of the Arctic and try some of the best fishing available anywhere. You’ll battle huge fish, with the professionals regularly catching Halibut weighing over 200kg!
Dragon’s Breath Flight Line – Labadee, Haiti
Experience the thrills and sights of the world’s longest zip line over water by heading to the port of Labadee. From 500 feet above the water, you’ll soar over the incredible scenery of the bay and the jungles, travelling at speeds of up to 50mph on a journey lasting over 2,600 feet.
Quad Bike Safari – Walvis Bay
Head inland from this scenic port and you’ll find sprawling deserts just waiting to be explored – and what better way than being on your own quad bike? You’ll power up and down monster dunes, whilst learning about some of the intriguing wildlife and remains that litter the landscapes.
Jungle Trek & Cave Tubing – Belize City
Trek through the Belize jungles either on foot or whilst riding an ATV, before trying the unique experience of cave tubing, where you’ll explore the majestic sights deep into some of the local caves whilst floating down the waters, uncovering ancient wonders thought to be held sacred by the Mayans. It’s certainly an exhilarating and captivating encounter.
