Looking to take an unusual, exciting, and adrenaline filled vacation?? Try these out for size!

Kite Skiing, Frobisher Bay, Canada

Kite Skiing

Frobisher Bay is recognized has one of the premier kite skiing locations in Canada. It’s a combination of sailing, skiing and kite flying. With a power kite or traction kite providing the pull, there is no need for a hill. The skier just handles the kite in a way that is a lot like using the mainsail in a sailing boat. If Canada was bit beyond your reach you can also try the sports at Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire and Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota.

Land Sailing, Las Vegas, Nevada

Land sailing, also known as sand yachting or land yachting, is the act of moving across land in a wheeled vehicle powered by wind through the use of a sail. Enthusiasts can try out the sports at Ivanpah Dry Lake in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here you would have an opportunity to experience the fun & freedom of land sailing as you blast across miles of smooth, wide open spaces.

Mountain Biking, Colorado Rockies

Mountain biking entails the sport of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, whether riding specially equipped mountain bikes or hybrid road bikes. Colorado Rockies is a premier location for a cycling vacation with hundreds of paved and unpaved roads suitable for tour bikes, while off road trails and single tracks accommodate mountain bikes. It's an activity that allows you to experience the beautiful scenery and terrain with minimum effort and maximum exposure to the outdoors.

Piranha Fishing, Amazon

Piranha Fishing

Piranhas are known for their sharp teeth and a voracious appetite for meat. It is perhaps the danger and challenge associated with catching this fish that makes it one of the most challenging "Extreme sports". The Amazon Rainforest has an incredible diversity of wildlife. The best known fish in the Amazon is none other than the piranhas. You can also experience the sports at the Pantanal which is a region in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul in Western Brazil.
