Swimming in the Devil’s Pool is only possible in the drier months, usually from mid-August to mid-January. If the water level is low in October and November, you can reach it on foot, but a guide is mandatory. Keep in mind that access to the island is closed when the water level is very high that is from March to May.

Trekking provides a slow build of accumulated excitement. That is one of the reasons why you should walk if you can. There are many alternatives for trekking.

5. Hiking at Hallasan, Jeju, South Korea
Hallasan is a huge volcanic shield that makes up most of Jeju Island. The summit is located at 1,950 meters above sea level. There are five trails near Mount Hallasan, but only some of them that will enable you to reach the summit. The Seongpanak and Gwaneumsa trails are the only ones that bring you to reach the top. They are also much tougher than any other track.
There is a time limit for climbing to the top. You have to go to Saraoreum’s shelter in the middle of the hike at 1 o’clock in the afternoon. This is because hiking becomes quite dangerous when it gets dark.
6. Camping under the Northern Lights
You won’t want to miss to see the dancing aurora aka northern lights. There are many factors that affect the chance of seeing the dancing light phenomenon, such as location, season and weather conditions.

If you are afraid of heights, do not look down.
9. Jumping into a refreshing cenote in Yucatan, Mexico
Yucatan offers a lot of things to see and do. There are more adventure holiday ideas in this area. The cenotes are actually sinkholes that release the groundwater after the collapse of the overlying limestone. Imagine a labyrinth of underground caves that fill with fresh water, through which sunlight falls through openings in the ceilings. The Cenotes are located throughout the region and are a real treat to escape the heat, swim and explore.
10. Surfing in the Sahara
The Sahara dunes are colossal, pure and tailored for daredevil sports. The barchan (in Turkish “Crescent-shaped Dunes”) deserts are perfect contours for those who wish to sand surfing (going down on the slopes on a surfboard) and a sandboard (going down the slopes on a snowboard).
11. Boating along the Amazon
Some isolated destinations seem to be best viewed from the boat deck, including the upper part of the Amazon River. The luxurious aqua expedition cruises along the Peruvian river cross the wildlife and culture of the region at a pleasant and slow pace. Are you looking for something less luxurious? You can do kayaking along some tributaries of the Amazon, where you can catch piranhas and camp in the jungle.
12. Diving the Great Blue Hole of Belize
The Great Blue Hole is known for its circular shape and striking deep blue color. It is a sinkhole with a diameter of 1,000 foot. There is a 1,000-meter wide sink in the center of Belize Lighthouse Reef. As an atmospheric photograph can be convincing enough for everyone to see its beauty, divers can experience the wonders that lie beneath it: limestone stalagmites and limestone stalactites formed during the last ice age.
13. Riding in Trans-Siberian, Russia-China
If you want to travel so desperately between Moscow and Beijing (the Transmongol agencies’ network, possibly the most interesting one), you can fly in less than eight hours. However, this train is traveling six nights and 7,621 km slowly in its most atmospheric place, a slow-starting birch on Lake Baikal, Gobi Desert, grassy steppes, tent camps, herds of camels and merchants trading sweets and sausages.
So, which one that excites you the most? Is it exploring the Sahara or boating in Amazong? Perhaps, bungee jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge or bathing in Devil’s fool is more dare defying adventure for you?
