Swim with crocodiles in Australia
Naturally most people would avoid crocodiles at all costs, but for some of us, the thrill of getting up close and personal with these deadly but magnificent reptiles is an experience that must be crossed off the bucket list. Crocosaurus Cove’s Cage of Death in Darwin, Northern Territory, can make that dream come true.

Surfing in the ocean is cool and all, but catch the wave of a lifetime while surfing down the inside of an active volcano. What?! Yes. Experience Volcan Cerro Negro at 80 km per hour.
Go wing-walking in the U.K.
While strapped to the top wings of Boeing Stearman biplanes, wing-walkers perform a breathtaking sequence of acrobatic maneuvers and handstands as the aircraft flies through a routine of dazzling aerobatics and close formation flypasts. But you don’t have to be a professional to experience this form of air-surfing — there are plenty of places in the U.K. where you can take on the skies for yourself. Check out wingwalking.co.uk for locations.
Kayak or raft down the Grand Canyon
