Are you looking to add something a little more adventurous to your 2015 bucket list?

Over the years we have experienced some incredible adventures from around the world. Here are our top 10 trialled and tested adventures you need to add to your bucket list this year!

Skydive over The Palm in Dubai, UAE

Okay, let’s start off with our most memorable adventure. Skydiving is something we believe everyone needs to experience and it has to be done in Dubai! No views will ever compare to the ones we saw during our jump and the feeling of accomplishment is overwhelming. I am crazy afraid of heights, however conquering my fears is one of the best things I have ever done.

Bungee jump in Whistler, Canada

Bungee jumping is one of the most extreme sports ever invented, an adrenaline rush like no other, and of course we had to try it and you should too! We experienced our first ever bungee on a beautiful winters day in Whistler, British Columbia. We both actually found bungee jumping scarier than sky diving just to give you a heads up.

Paraglide from Coronet Peak, New Zealand

We highly recommend you experience the amazing rush of paragliding. If you haven’t heard of it, paragliding is simply running off the face of a mountain with a parachute strapped to your back. Sounds dangerous, yet exhilarating doesn’t it? Trust us, its the latter of the two. We had our paraglide experience from the top of Coronet Peak in Queenstown, New Zealand and it was amazing!

Scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef, Australia

We never would of thought that our first scuba diving experience would be in the famous Great Barrier Reef, and we are so glad it was. Trust us, if you love snorkelling you need to try scuba diving, and if you can experience it in The Great Barrier Reef – even better! During our dive we were surrounded by reef sharks, an abundance of colourful coral and tropical fish galore.

ATV through Kualoa Ranch, Hawaii

Exploring the beautiful valley via ATV where they filmed Jurrasic Park and many other films was an incredible experience. The views were breathtaking throughout the ranch and a place we recommend you visit even if you don’t go ATVing. We are now addicted and feel that the best way to roam around and discover new landscapes is by ATV.

Parasail in the Caribbean

During our time cruising the Caribbean we decided to do something a little different during our St Thomas and go parasailing. We have since parasailed in Bali and Waikiki and absolutely love it. It is such a fun activity to do and an amazing way to experience the views of the island. If you have plans to visit an exotic island add it to your bucket list pronto!

White Water Rafting in Ubud, Bali

We can not recommend white water rafting enough. It is such a fun activity to do, especially if you are travelling with a group. We have white water rafted twice, once with Stephens family in Ubud, Bali and again with my family in Cairns, Australia – and we would definitely be up for doing it again.


Ski the slopes in Whistler, Canada

If we had to recommend a place to experience skiing we would have to say Whistler in British Columbia. We have only seen snow a few times and are still learning, but we absolutely love it.

Surf some waves in Waikiki, Oahu

For those wanting to add learn to surf to their bucket list, what a better place to start then at the beaches of Waikiki in Hawaii. Or for those surfing pros why not experience surfing at the famous North Shore also on the island Oahu.


Hike an active volcano at Mt. Batur, Indonesia

There aren’t many people that can say they have hiked an active volcano, why not join the list? If you are ever travelling through Ubud in Bali you have to do the sunrise hike up Mt. Batur. I don’t think we have ever felt such a sense of physical accomplishment after finishing the hike, it was tough, but so worth it!
