When it comes to sports a lot of people imagine some of the most popular sports around the world, like football, basketball, volleyball, etc. One of the reasons for these sports to be so popular is that they are not only interesting, but they are also safe. In other words, dangerous sports would not be so popular.
However, there are a lot of people who like to set their pulse racing and to boost their adrenaline. They are into very extreme kind of sports and often like to try more and more extreme kind of sports. Today we decided to list a group of extreme sports for those of you who tend to be very adventurous. Check them out or should I say try them out?
#1 Bungee Jumping
There are probably hardly any adventurous people left who have not tried bungee jumping. It is one of the extreme types of sports which is popular all over the world. There are special places in every country for bungee jumping, like Macau Tower in China and Victoria Falls Bridge on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
It is surely an experience that is breathtaking and it can teach one how to deal with their fears. Some people are really terrified before the jump because of the depth of the place they will fall from, but the whole experience is so incredible that they want to do it all over again.
#2 Ice Climbing
The next sport for adventurers is perfect for the winter months since it involves ice. Everybody has heard of climbing and one would usually imagine rock climbing, or some kind of indoor climbing, but less often ice climbing. This is one of the extreme sports an adventurous person should try out at least once.
It is very much different from the traditional rock climbing since ice is not only cold, but also very slippery. One should wear a special gear and, most importantly, special climbing shoes with the help of which to get attached to the mount of ice and be able to go up. It would surely be an experience that you will not forget.
#3 Scuba Diving
Some people would not classify scuba diving as a dangerous sport but it depends on the place one is about to dive. There are deeper parts in the ocean people dive and there are also such parts where a person could encounter even a shark which makes the experience even more adrenalin-bringing.
One could even dive in a cage to swim with some great white sharks. And this shows that scuba diving can be quite extreme. If you, however, are not into too extreme things, you could take it easy and go scuba diving in Australia to see the Great Barrier Reef.
#4 Volcano Boarding
This sport is not so famous, especially compared to the other in the list, because there are not that many volcanoes one could try volcano boarding on. A person who is into unusual and extreme sport is very much likely to find volcano boarding interesting.
The very sport involves going down a dormant volcano wearing special clothes to protect yourself from the rubble and the ashes and also wearing glasses to protect your eyes. It is something like sleighing but without snow. It is interesting and fun and not that dangerous.
There is just no way to skip mentioning skydiving in the list since it is a popular sport and definitely an extreme one. It is one of the experiences a person should try at least once in their life because it is unforgettable and, I could say, it makes you feel alive at the moment of the very skydive and after that.
Some people say that they like it much more compared to bungee jumping since it is more beautiful and it takes somewhat longer time which helps a person enjoy the experience more. Nowadays there are plenty of places one could go skydiving but it is not that cheap so you need to be prepared for it. And if you decide to try it out make sure you follow the instructions and prepare yourself well.
