The 10 best adventure tourism destinations in the world

Some of us would rather go on an adventure than laze around on a beach, gulp hundreds of liters of alcohol, dance in a night club till we drop dead or even watch a movie.

If you are one such kind of a person, worry not. Below are the top 10 destinations for you.

1. The Great Barrier Reef of Australia

If you want a destination that absolutely rocks in terms of diversity of flora and fauna and number of activities you can engage in, look no further. The Great Barrier Reef is home to the world's most diverse ecosystem.

2. The Pyramids of Giza

Located in Egypt, this will not only be an adventure but also a lesson in history. Travel the Sahara desert as you learn about such Egyptian rulers as pharaoh Imhotep.

3. The Chilean Patagonia

This icy landscape is big enough for you to explore for the rest of your life. If you get your kicks from going on the outdoors, this is the place to be.

5. Maasai Mara-Serengeti Tourism Belt

If you are into wildlife, then there is no better place to go than Maasai Mara in Kenya and Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Here you will get to see the African jungle Big Five that includes Lions, Elephants, Rhinos, Leopards, and Buffaloes among other animals.

6. The Amazon forest and Inca sites of Bolivia

This destination is ideal for those who love hiking and exploring the dense tropical forests. This destination will test all your will to surmount the dense forest trails and withstand the rain.

7. Angkor Wat

If you love exploring, why not try this Cambodian religious site? The temple is the largest religious monument in the world and a UNESCO listed world heritage site.

8. The Whistler Mountain in Canada

If you are the outdoorsy, sports fan, then ice-skating, dog sledding, skiing and other winter sports at Whistler will kick your adrenaline into hyper drive.

9. Costa Rica

Do you know what Zip lining is? Well, it is hanging for dear life as you hurtle down a forest canopy on a zip line. This is one of the popular sports/adventures experienced in Costa Rica's jungles.

10. Zorbing in Rotarua, New Zealand

A zorb is a large ball where one gets inside and run down a slope. Trust me; this is a new sport that is yet to catch on, but it is well worth your consideration.

These destinations are enough to keep your heart beating fast enough and your gut recoiling at the danger you are willing to put yourself into in order to experience the 'thrill'. I do not blame you, I also love it...and it is safer than using drugs, right?
