If you’re constantly looking for the next thrill, trying death-defying stunts, spending your weekends on a dirt bike, and sitting discontent when you’re not moving, you might be an adrenaline junkie. Adrenaline junkies can’t simply enjoy just any vacation. They need something thrilling to fully enjoy themselves. Here are a few vacation ideas adrenaline junkies will love.


Surfing in Hawaii

Whether you’re an avid surfer or you’ve always wanted to learn, Hawaii is an excellent destination for you. The waves there are some of the best in the world for surfing, and you can take custom surfing lessons to match your skill levels, whether you’re a beginner of an expert.

While you’re in Hawaii, there are dozens of other spine-tingling adventures to be had, from climbing to the lip of an active volcano to zip lining over the island greenery. You can also scuba dive and snorkel, maybe even encountering a shark or two.


Exploring the Beaches of Coos Bay, Oregon

Coos Bay, OR is an excellent vacation destination for those who like adrenaline and relaxation. If you’re traveling with someone who doesn’t love heart-pounding adventures quite as much as you do, they’ll love getting the best of both worlds.

Coos Bay is often referred to as a site for shore eyes, owing to the clear, natural beauty of the space. While your friends or family are relaxing on the beach, you can parasail, scuba dive, zip line, go spelunking, explore the rocky shores, or even gamble at the local casino.


Taking an African Safari

Every adrenaline junkie has an African safari on their bucket lists. There are safari tours designed for those just like you with thrilling chases and hunts. You’ll get close to the world’s biggest cats, rhinoceroses, elephants, wildebeest, and so much more.

If this doesn’t provide the fix you’re craving, there’s always white water rafting on the Zambezi River. You’ll encounter class V rapids that will challenge even your thrill-seeking skills.


Paragliding in Ecuador

The mountains of Ecuador are an incredible sight and quite challenging for the average hiker, but you might think it’s a bore. For your Ecuador adventure, book a paragliding tour.

There are many options for paragliding over this mountainous terrain, but you might consider a popular 9-day tour with G Adventures. They’ll have you soaring over cloud forests, dense jungles, volcanoes, and more in no time.


Wandering through the Rainforests of Brazil

Rainforests cover almost 60 percent of Brazil’s 1.8 million square miles of land. This space is a lucious paradise of green trees, wildlife, hiking trails, and so much more. You can wander through the undergrowth, losing your breath at the gorgeous sunbeams that break through the canopy. You’ll see birds, monkeys, apes, and insects like you’ve never seen before.

The rainforests are full of dangers, which probably thrills you, but you’ll want a guided tour, nonetheless. The right tour guide will get you close to the most exciting things found in these gorgeous foress.


Diving with Great White Sharks in Australia

There are very few places that endorse diving with great white sharks, the largest and most menacing creatures of the shark family. But in Australia, tour guides are only too happy to take you on this underwater tour.

After you don your scuba gear, they’ll put you in a steel cage that rests on the ocean floor, then release blood or meat into the water to lure the sharks to you. They may even bump up against or charge the cage, sending a thrill through your bones unlike nothing you’ve ever felt before. How’s that for an adrenaline-friendly vacation?
