Unmissable adventures around the world

Next article:5 natural wonders of Australia

1.USA

Hiking Zion National Park’s Angels Landing Trail—just 8km long, but utterly unforgettable. The last 100m traverses a ledgy via ferrata route to a pedestal smack in the middle of the canyon, 460m above the canyon floor and the Virgin River below. Not for the faint of heart or the acrophobic.

2.Australia

Riding Mt Buller’s 40km Australian Alpine Epic Trail in the Victorian highlands—the only track in the country granted official ‘epic’ status by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA).

3.Guatemala

Hiking 60km into Petén jungle to the spectacular ruins of El Mirador, a fascinating, largely unexcavated Mayan city. The vast Maya Biosphere Reserve is one of the most ecologically diverse regions in the world, home to giant anteaters, scarlet macaws, jaguars and pumas, plus hundreds of unique plants and trees.

4.Iceland

Venturing into a volcano. Iceland is home to the world’s only volcano that can be explored from the inside: Thrihnukagigur, east of Bláfjöll Mountain, which hasn’t erupted for 4000 years. Using an open elevator, subterranean explorers experience a journey into the Earth as they’re lowered 120m into the magma chamber.

5.Turkey

Paragliding from one of the highest commercial sites in the world, perched atop the 1960m Mt Babadag. It’s a 30-40 minute thrill ride back down, landing on the postcard-perfect Oludeniz Beach. Almost as adrenaline-pumping is the 4WD journey up to the summit and the brief instruction session—‘Run. Fast. Don’t stop.’
