7 Extreme Vacations for Extreme Travelers ...


If you love the adrenaline rush and the heart-stopping thrill, lying on a beach for two weeks just won’t cut it and you’ll be on the lookout for extreme vacations.

You want action.

You want adventure.

But you also want breathtaking scenery.

And you want plenty of entertainment for when you’re not pushing yourself to your limits.

You want these extreme vacations.

1. Heli-skiing


One of the most extreme vacations for extreme travelers involves a helicopter, some skis, and a whole lot of untouched terrain.

Pro skiers who are sick of the slopes and hope to get a rush elsewhere can board a chopper and go heli-skiing.

Screw chairlifts – this helicopter will deliver you to the mountaintop, allowing you access to miles and miles of uncharted and uber challenging ski runs out in the middle of nowhere and everywhere, with not a single fellow skier to hog the slopes.

One great option for heli-skiing is Valdez Heli-Camps, which runs tours to Alaska’s Chugach mountain range.3

The “Sound to Summit” package launches thrill-seekers on Chugach’s peak, at 13,000 feet, and includes accommodations aboard an anchored ship in the Prince William Sound.

2. Drag Racing

Drag Racing

For those who like adrenaline-pumping speeds, an extreme vacation at a drag racing school just might be your thang.

Whereas street drag racing is against the law, in order to experience the rush of a high speed car chase, you can toe the line by joining one of many drag racing schools – Doug Foley's Drag Racing School in Atco, New Jersey, for example.

This school offers a Super Comp Dragster package, which includes safety orientation and car instruction over a two day course.2

Then you can go full-throttle on the black-tar course, racing the speed of light.

3. Sandboarding


If you’re one of those amped-up snowboarders who unfortunately does not live in or near a year-round snowboard-friendly slope, then give sandboarding a go.2

Head out into the desert, strap on your board, and have at the sand slopes.

The recent popularity of sandboarding has sky-rocketed, with snowboarders taking advantage of the sport’s four-season range amidst a totally inverse landscape from the cold, snowy mountain slopes.

For serious sand slopes, travel to Cerro Blanco alongside Peru’s Andes mountain range.

Here, you can take a stab at the tallest sand dune in the world.
