For most people, travelling equals adventure, freedom and enjoyment. For a few others though, travelling goes beyond the normal limits and it becomes extreme. Let’s take a look at the top three extreme adventures one could have. Some find skydiving not that exciting anymore and want to reach even higher, well I’ve got good news for you: Space travel is no longer exclusively reserved to Astronauts. According to Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, the space shuttle is now taking paying passengers into sub-orbital space. For as much as $200,000 a ticket, the final frontier will be in your grasp.
From the highest top to the deepest bottom, Deep Ocean Expeditions has now become a thing for underwater explorers. Deep Rover submarines and Mir Submersibles are made public for rare firsthand views of the deep majestic ocean floors. Public expeditions to the famous Titanic in the North Atlantic were extremely famous in 2012 and the trip is now a well known touring spot. However, this destination is only suitable for the most courageous travellers who can afford such an expensive expedition. Trips to the deepest seas can cost around $30,000 to $400,000 depending on the depth of the adventure. If you have deep curiosity and even deeper pockets, you might find this experience extremely enjoyable.
With the advancement in technology, man is now able to explore Antarctica and even set foot on the South Pole. For around $60,000, tourists are allowed passage into the icy world and a settlement such as the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station that is organized by the United States is open for visits. A facility operated by Belgium called the Princess Elisabeth Station that runs purely by solar and wind energy is defiantly another epic stop if you are thinking about going there.
Although the journey seems like nothing but a cold wasteland, various species like penguins, seals, seabirds and whales are drawn to the feeding grounds and summer sun.
For the extreme enthusiasts that seek a thrill of a lifetime, and have the bank account for it, be sure to check out these attractions that will make a memorable experience. Even though there are loads of places to visit nowadays and you might feel like you still have some land to explore before going high in the sky or deep into the sea, you can be sure that these are some amazing things to do in one’s life.
