You’ve gone to dinner, the movies, had a picnic in the park—now it’s time to take your relationship up a notch and go for an adventure of a lifetime. Whether you are an extreme sports enthusiast who participates in extreme sports on the daily, or interested in testing your bravery and exploring new experiences, it only gets better when you can share it with your other half.
Ready to test your limits, see how far you can go together? Participating in an extreme sport—especially a team sport—is a perfect way to see how well you both work together and create new, incredible experiences and memories together while strengthening the bond you both already share.
Whether’s a fun vacation, birthday, anniversary, honeymoon or a spontaneous trip to spice up your life as a couple, we’ve got a vast array of activities you can both enjoy together. Who wants a cruise when you can bungee jump, go mountaineering, skydive or tightrope walk with your love?
We’re starting off with a splash with the first on our list, cliff diving! If you enjoy swimming and love the water and looking for a heart pumping, adrenaline filled activity, cliff diving is the sport for you. Who knows, maybe one (or both of you) will enjoy it so much you quit your jobs and become full time, professional cliff divers, chasing fame and fortune by diving off of 100+ foot cliffs. There are countless national and exotic cliff diving locations across the world, and a quick google search of your dream (or local) location with the term “cliff diving” will most likely produce at least one location. If you live locally to high cliffs and deep water, you might just be in luck and find something right in your own area. Otherwise, an (exteme)ly fun cliff diving vacation could be in your future!
If you think you’ll get bored with trying a new sport, we can guarantee that you and other half definitely won’t get bored with whitewater rafting. All whitewater sports take it to the extremes, and if you are looking to get into an activity where you both can work together as a team, there are not many activities that can top white water rafting. You’ll feel the rush of adrenaline, power of the rapids propelling you forward, and high speed thrills. You’ll have the chance to test your trust and belief in each other, while taking in the beauty of the surrounding natural world and learnign new skills.
Tandem Bungee Jumping
Imagine: Your arms wrapped around the love of your life, you’re standing on a platform as you stare into each other eyes, inches away from a several hundred-foot sheer drop, you take a breath and…you both jump.
Don’t worry, this story has a happy ending. You both are securely attached to a bungee cord, falling anywhere from 100 to 500 feet in 2-4 seconds. It’s not for the faint of heart (or stomach), but those moments will forever be etched in your mind, a symbol of your trust to each other. Tandem bungee jumps are designed for two people to simultaneously jump together—perfect for couples.
No, this isn’t an insult! Fat biking refers to a type of off-road bikes with oversized tires, perfect for biking up in the snowy mountains. It’s a super fun way to ride the slopes with your partner in crime and taking in the snowy sights. You might think that fat biking takes a lot more effort than regular biking, but you’ll be surprised to see how easy it is to handle in several inches of fresh snow.
What extreme activities to enjoy with your lover would be complete without rock climbing? Rock climbing is one of the oldest extreme sports in the world, and is also one of the most popular in modern times. With practice and hands-on experience, you’ll both be scaling sheer cliffs in no time. When starting out, always have an instructor or guide with you who will show you both the ropes and how to safely rock climb while having fun and enjoying mother nature’s vastness. Your guide will have a route fit to your skill level—no matter if you’ve never climbed in your life, or it’s a favorite pastime.
Swim With Sharks
The next time someone questions your bravery, you can confidently tell them they’ve got nothing on you—you and swim with sharks for fun! That’s a badass couple right there, for sure.
No, we’re not joking—swimming with sharks is not suicide. It’s completely safe to go on an underwater exploration and swim right by these harmless little fishes. Sharks have a terrible reputation thanks to the media, but divers around the world, every day spend time beneath the waves with sharks. You’ll need to get good at diving, but if you are looking for the underwater experience of a lifetime, or have an interest in underwater photography, a trip a 10,000 leagues under the sea (alright, maybe not that far down) is something to consider. The sharks are completely free in their natural territory, allowed you to peacefully admire them in different locations around the world.
As you can see, there are several exciting activities
