Vacation Ideas For The Consumate Thrill Seeker

If the idea of a boring vacation bores you, then you should look into a exciting vacation trip that will get your blood pumping. There are many people who are not keen on a relaxing vacation where you sit back and relax and enjoy the tranquility of the beach or some other quiet destination. Some people want to be active and go outside and do something invigorating and enjoy themselves while also being active. And if you are a thrill seeker, then you should definitely look into a vacation destination that will allow you to participate in something that is not only exciting, but also fun. Here's a couple of ideas to consider.

White Water Rafting The Colorado River

If you love the idea of rafting, and you really want a thrill, you should look into a white water trip down the Colorado river. This is one of the countries most exciting destinations when it comes to white water rafting. The rapids are some of the most thrilling and you will really be in for a treat. Rapids are classed on a scale. The lower white water rivers might be a bit too tame, and some of the class 5 rivers (which are at the top of the scale) might be too extreme and actually dangerous. The Colorado river, on the other hand, has just the right thrills. It's got all the rapids you will want to provide a thrilling adventure vacation without putting you at risk. 

Hike Mount Kilimanjaro On A Guided Tour

If you like the idea of mountain climbing, but are not someone who has the unlimited funds necessary (or the time required) to hike Everest, then consider a guided tour of Mount Kilimanjaro. This is an easier climb than Everest, but it's also exciting. Unlike a huge climb such as Everest or K2, where you would need special gear such as oxygen tanks, and need to hire Sherpas, not to mention weeks of prep time, a guided tour of this African Mountain is just the ticket for the average person. You don't have to take months off of work (something necessary for the extreme climbs) so you can schedule a regular vacation and  not have to worry about leaving your house for weeks on end. Not only that, there are no  serious dangerous like you would encounter on one of the ultra climbs. However, you do get the same enjoyment in seeing a foreign landscape (Africa in this case) as well as ascending one of the words largest mountains.
