Some people just can’t stay at one place for too long. Soothing and relaxing vacations barely ever appeal to them. Their arena is not the comfort of a cozy living room lit up by a warm fireplace, with a mug of hot chocolate waiting next to their chair. This just won’t cut it. What will make to the finishing line here would be a rush of adrenaline that would have your heart rate racing.
Here is a list of 5 places you must visit if adrenaline-filled trips get you going every single time:
Queenstown, New Zealand
A beautiful town in the South Island of New Zealand, Queenstown offers various recreational opportunities all throughout the year. If you’re looking to challenge your adrenaline to a whole new level, you can pick an extreme sport and head to Queenstown for it! Be it heli-skiing, high-speed careening, or even bungee jumping, Queenstown has it all to offer to its visitors to get their blood pumping.
GoFro Tip: Go for drift karting, an adventure activity with a twist. It’s fast, fun and full of skidding action!
Skiing in Switzerland
Apart from being a beautifully snow-covered region, Switzerland is also known for its great opportunities for skiing, snowboarding and snow jet-skiing. The four alpine resorts that are synonymous with skiing in Switzerland are Verbier, Zermatt, Davos-Klosters, and St. Moritz, offer the most varied terrains for skiing.

Zip-Lining in a Rainforest Costa Rica
Many might not associate adventure with Costa Rica, but there is much that this small, Central American country can offer. Zip-lining is an absolute favorite activity to undertake here. Glide through dense canopies of trees and over crocodile-infested rivers of the Amazonian rainforest!

Hang-Gliding in Rio de Janeiro
For a thrilling adventure in Rio de Janeiro, nothing beats the excitement of hand-gliding. Touted as an amazing experience by many, you can finally fulfill your dream of flying like a bird with gorgeous mountains all around you. Take off from the ramp at Pedra Bonita hill located in Tijuca Forest National Park.
GoFro Tip: Head to the Pedra Branca State Park and hang off a cliff!
Swimming With Stingrays in the Maldives
A normal day of swimming at the beach might be too boring. Instead, spend some time swimming with stingrays in the Maldives! Boasting of the most vibrant and colorful marine life on the planet, the waters of the Maldives are home to not just stingrays, but also whale sharks, dolphins and turtles. The giant stingrays and whale sharks are absolutely harmless and are often found in groups. The best place to find these sea creatures are at North Male Atoll and Vaavu Atoll. So, grab your snorkeling gear and see some stingrays adorably following each other by the tail.
GoFro Tip: Give kite surfing a try while you’re in the Maldives. It’s exactly as the name seems, you fly a kite while surfing over the water!
