Do you like the feeling of your heart racing as you drop on a roller coaster or look out at the water from a cliff before you dive in? Well, you may just be an adrenaline junkie. If that’s the case, you’re likely to love these travel destinations.

Cape Town, South Africa

The range of thrills you can seek in Cape Town is immense with activity options including going on safari, diving with great white sharks at Shark Alley, surfing huge waves at Dungeons Beach, crocodile cage diving, taking a gyrocopter flight along the stunning coast, and rappelling Table Mountain.


This is one travel destination that is really not for the weak at heart. Going to Antarctica requires some real bravery, as well as good anti-nausea medication and cold-weather gear.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

A city that’s earned the reputation of being a go-to travel destination for adrenaline junkies, Dubai has so many thrills to offer including safaris, off-road motorcycling, and plenty of skydiving.

Queenstown, New Zealand

Last but certainly not least we have the “adventure capital of the world” which offers some towering skydives and bungee jumps, as well as some really cool hang gliding.
