Bucket List Places for Adrenaline Junkies – Adventure for the Thrill Seeker

If the outdoors are your playground and the thought of a relaxing holiday is too boring; check out this bucket list of places that call to the heart and soul of the adrenaline junky.

1

Surf a Rhino or Elephant – Head over to Hawaii

Well if you know what type of elephant or rhino is mentioned here then you are a seasoned surfer. These are big bad waves of course and best tackled on the North Shores of Hawaii. The waves around this area are tipped to be the most challenging across the world and guess what? Winter it seems is the best time for chasing these bad boys. The best beaches to hit for these huge breaks are Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and beautiful Ehukai Beach also called Banzai Pipeline.

Snorkelling and Kayaking on the Barrier Reef – Belize

Instead of going with the flow and trying to find your spot in the sun on a crowded beach head over to Belize. There you are treated to the western hemispheres longest reef as well as tropical forests, verdant lagoons and rustic Mayan ruins a treat to explore. Make plans to snorkel and explore Saddle Cay which is a lush mangrove jungle as well as Queens Cay home to beautiful white sand beaches and Glovers Reef. And if that's not enough to satisfy the wanderer in you head over to Half Moon Cay and Lighthouse Atoll where the myriad of marine life are nothing short of amazing. Need more adventure? Dive at The Great Blue Hole; a 1,000 foot wide chasm that has a depth of 440 feet. December to April is the best time to enjoy these locations and if you find yourself hankering for similar adventures do ask your travel agency in Sri Lanka about related destinations.

Ski the Haute Route – France, Italy and Switzerland

The most popular route amongst backcountry skiers the Haute Route is sheer pleasure. On this tour you can mix plenty of adventure with pleasure. Along the way you stop at the cosy Swiss Alpine Clubs where a hearty dinner and steaming hot mugs of cocoa are to be relished. Swiss Alps tours too are very popular and like Aitken Spence Holidays cover many attractions. The Haute Route takes seven days to complete starting at Chamonix in France the tour passes through Italy and the Alpine snowfields all the way to Switzerland. March to May is the preferred season for good weather while a tour earlier than this period provides better snow but more unpredictable weather patterns.
