an Adventure - An adventure is an activity that
comprises risky, dangerous and uncertain experiences.
The term is more popularly used in reference
to physical activities that have some potential
for danger, such as skydiving, mountain climbing,
and extreme sports. adventure can be describing
an unusual experience or participating in exciting
undertakings.adventurous activity can lead to gains
in knowledge.Below are lists of Adventures that
might interest you in participating.
Mountain Biking - Mountain biking entails the sport
of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, whether riding
mountain bikes or hybrid road bikes.Mountain biking
is roughly broken down into four categories: cross country, downhill,
freeride, and trials/street
riding. Each has differing levels of safety-consciousness
with different types of mountain bikes and riding gear.
Mountaineering - Mountaineering is the sport, hobby or profession
of walking, hiking, trekking and climbing up mountains. It is also
sometimes known as alpinism, particularly in Europe. While it began
as an all-out attempt to reach the highest point of unclimbed mountains,
it has branched into specializations addressing different aspects of
mountains and may now be said to consist of three aspects: rock-craft,
snow-craft and skiing, depending on whether the route chosen is over
rock, snow or ice. All require great athletic and technical ability,
and experience is also very important.
Adventure Safari - A safari is an overland journey. It usually refers
to a trip by tourists to Africa, traditionally for a big-game hunt
and in more modern times to watch and photograph big game and other
wildlife as a safari holiday. Although the word safari came to popular
usage in reference to hunting and touring expeditions in East Africa,
it is now used generally to mean any long or adventurous journey or
Hiking - Hiking is a form of walking, undertaken with the specific
purpose of exploring and enjoying the scenery. It usually takes place
on trails in rural or wilderness areas.The word hiking is understood
in all English-speaking countries, but there are differences in usage.
In some places, off-trail hiking is called cross-country hiking, bushwalking,
Bungee Jumping - Bungee jumping is an activity that involves jumping
from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. The
tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge
or crane; but it is also possible to jump from a movable object, such
as a hot-air-balloon or helicopter, that has the ability to hover over
one spot on the ground; fixed-wing aircraft are unsuitable because
they only stay aloft when moving rapidly forward.
Sky Diving - Also known as Parachuting is an activity involving a
preplanned drop from a height using a deployable parachute.In freefall
most skydivers start by learning to maintain a stable belly to earth
arch position. In this position the average fall rate is around 190
km/h (120 mph). Learning a stable arch position is a basic skill essential
for a reliable parachute deployment.
Ballooning - Hot air ballooning is the activity of flying
hot air balloons. Attractive aspects of ballooning include the
quiet (except when the propane burners are firing),
the lack of a feeling of movement, and the birds-eye view. Since
the balloon moves with the
wind, the passengers feel absolutely no wind, except
for brief periods during the flight when the balloon climbs or
descends into air currents
of different direction or speed.
Snow Skiing - Snow skiing is a group of sports utilizing skis as primary
equipment. Skis are used in conjunction with boots that connect to
the ski with use of a binding. Although snowboarding shares the general
characteristics of skiing sports, it evolved from surfing and skateboarding
and so is not considered a type of skiing.
Snow Boarding - Snowboarding is a sport that involves descending a
snow-covered slope on a snowboard attached to a participants feet using
a special boot set into a mounted binding. The development of snowboarding
was inspired by surfing and skateboarding, and the sport shares superficial
similarities with skiing.
Diving - Scuba diving is swimming underwater, or taking part
in another activity, while using a scuba set. By carrying a source
of breathing gas (usually compressed air), the scuba diver is able
to stay underwater longer than with the simple breath-holding techniques
used in snorkeling and free-diving, and is not hindered by air lines
to a remote air source.
Sailing - Sailing is the art of controlling a sailing vessel. By changing
the rigging, rudder and dagger or centre board, a sailor manages the
force of the wind on the sails (main and/or jib) in order to change
the direction and speed of a boat. Mastery of the skill requires experience
in varying wind and sea conditions, as well as knowledge concerning
sailboats. Today most people enjoy sailing as a recreational activity.
Rafting - Rafting or whitewater rafting is a challenging recreational
activity utilizing a raft to navigate a river or other bodies of water.
This is usually done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water,
in order to thrill and excite the raft passengers.
Kayaking - Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water.
Kayaking is generally differentiated from canoeing by the fact that
a kayak has a closed cockpit and a canoe has an open cockpit. However,
there are many sit-on-top kayaks, and these boats are growing in popularity.
Canoeing - Canoeing is the activity of paddling a canoe for the purpose
of recreation (also called a float trip), sport, or transportation.
It usually refers exclusively to using a paddle to propel a canoe with
only human muscle power.
Surfing - Surfing is a surface water sport in which the participant
is carried along the face of a breaking wave, most commonly using a
surfboard, although wave-riders may make use of kneeboards, body boards
(aka boogie boards), kayaks, surf skis, and their own bodies.
Skiing - Water skiing is a sport where an individual (or more
than one individual) is pulled behind a motor boat or a cable ski installation
on a body of water wearing one or more skis. The surface area of the
ski (or skis) keeps the person skimming on the surface of the water
allowing the skiier to stand upright while holding the tow rope.
