Peek over the edge of this rushing waterfall in Zambia

Devil s Pool swim – Victoria Falls, Zambia

Swimming by a waterfall – it sounds like a serene escape into nature.

But there s nothing peaceful about the Devil s Pool.

Instead of taking a dip at the base of the wall of water, this swim is done at the top. On the edge.

Travellers trek along a rocky path to the tip of Victoria Falls where years of erosion have formed a rock pool.

It s only accessible in the last half of the year when the climate is drier and the falls are calm enough.

Hold on tight as you peer over the ultimate infinity pool to catch this exhilarating view.

Spectators watch a base jump from the top of Kjeraf in Norway

Volcano diving – Iceland

The journey to the centre of the earth is no longer a work of fiction. If you can get past the two mile trail to the crater of Iceland s Thrihnukagigur volcano, you can go one step further.

A cable lift will take you almost 400 feet down for a once-in-a-lifetime view of the golden rock formations inside. Or why not fly over a volcano like this daredevil group of friends. 1

Base jumping – Norway

This adventure ride doesn t have the best success rate and that s because it s downright insane. If regular thrill-seeking isn t doing it for you, don a wing suit and throw yourself off a cliff in Norway.

Open your eyes to get a life changing view of the mountainscape but make sure to look down – extremely high speeds make landing notoriously difficult.

Hold on tight as you navigate your way along the world’s most dangerous hike in China

Whitewater SUP – Grand Canyon, USA

Stand up paddle boarding is tricky enough in waters that are dead flat. If you ve mastered the skill, take up the next challenge in the Grand Canyon. Give your core strength its best workout yet as you navigate through the whitewater rapids and don t forget to look up – this is one breathtaking view you do not want to miss.

Cliff walking – Hua Shan, China

The Hua Shan mountain trail has been labelled the world s deadliest hike. A safety line and a set of narrow wooden planks are all that separate you from this 6500-foot drop. Wobbly knees won t be the only thing getting in your path – the trail gets so crowded you ll have to weave your way around climbers coming the other way.
