The majority of people might think you are crazy for wanting to jump from a height with only a bungee cord to save you, white water raft through grade 3 rapids or surf down a steep active volcano on nothing but a board. But, for those who are adrenaline junkies at heart they can’t think of anything better than feeling the rush of living on the edge. Why not experience your next breath-taking extreme sport in an equally breath-taking location. Here are a few of the best places to travel to around the world for extreme sports.
Volcano Boarding in Nicaragua
Using only your heels as a brake and to steer, race down the black, rocky side of an active volcano on a wooden toboggan reaching speeds up to 90 kilometres per hour, but only after you’ve hiked to the top in order to get your ride. There is no better place to take on this sport than its birthplace of León in Nicaragua where the sport was pioneered by an Australian traveller when he rode down Cerro Negro in 2004.
