Heli-skiing is down-hill snowboarding with an exciting twist. Forget the normal ski lift, Heli-skiing is accessed by a helicopter. The skiers are taken to the mountains onboard the helicopter and are then unloaded with a guide. While heli-skiing is practiced all over the world, Canada is definitely the perfect place to reduce the risk, thanks to a number of heli-skiing activities that happen there.
Yes, you read it right. This is an activity that many might never want to try, but people around Leon, Nicaragua are quite open to it. Volcano boarding involves zooming down an active Volcano at a high speed of 90km/hr and using your heels to steer & brake. Quite a volcanic ride isn’t it?
Downhill Mountain Biking
Downhill mountain biking is extreme no doubt, but quite a popular adventurous activity. This involves biking down the hills with suspension bikes that quickly glide over rocks and treeroots. While the bikes are designed to ensure safety, the risk is immense.
Fresh Water Cave Diving
Scuba diving is just too simple a task for the thrill seekers, that’s why they notch it up a bit with fresh water cave diving. Factors such as visibility, strong water currents and lack of proper equipment make this such a risky sport! Crazy stuff!
Made popular thanks to films like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, sky diving is one activity that is on everyone’s to-do list. The thrill of jumping off a plane at 10,000 feet is like nothing else in this world!
That’s rock climbing minus all the safety equipments and ropes. Yes, the normal rock-climbing adventure with safety precautions is just not enough for some people! Bouldering is a big sport all over the world and is practiced on heights ranging from 20ft to 30ft.
An extreme combination of water boarding and paragliding, kite surfing involves the surfer moving through the waves and propelling himself forward with a controllable power kite. The surfer stands on the kite-board that is similar to a surfboard, which can be with or without any foot straps. Now if that doesn’t get your adrenaline rushing, we don’t know what will!
Ice climbing usually involves ascending frozen waterfalls or other ice formations on the rocks with the help of ropes and other special equipment. Colorado’s Ouray Ice Park was the first and most popular park devoted exclusively to this extreme sport.
