Welcome to another episode of travel, entertainment, and fun at FAYVO!
We are the people who love to explore, count the days to experience adventure, and can’t sit at peace if we don’t have anything exciting to do. So, therefore, we build a community of people who share similar interests. For us, getting recommendations on the next interesting thing is a life saver.
After spending two long years indoors and attending everything online, it’s time we open up our wings and get ready to fly. So, today, we are talking about lots and lots of entertainment and crazy things to do. Regardless of the location, budget, times, or any restrictions, we have options for you all.
As, travel is all about fun because if it wasn't fun, we wouldn't do it.
Sure, we know what we like and what to do, but when it comes to having the most fun, some places are simply more fun than others.
In this blog, we’ll talk about your deepest cravings. From cage diving with sharks to jumping out of a plane, cycling over the cliff, sailing with a boat, and so much more. Let’s not wait further to find out about these adventure vacations that guarantee you to give a lifetime experience.
Paraglide in Umbria:
The town of Castelluccio, in Italy, is worldly known for its adventure experiences. The Umbria region is located approximately three hours from Rome. You’d love the grassy hill and stunning views over the Piano Grande. The Piano Grande valley adds to the beauty with thousands of tiny red, white, and purple flowers. If you visit the region in spring, you’d be mesmerized by the whole look. In fact, the region celebrates a festival honoring the floral event that takes place in June. Now, it’s time to live your dream.
At 8,123 feet in the air, the visitors go to Monte Vettore. It is the typical jumping-off point for a 20-minute glide with Fly the Apennines. For beginners, this is the best experience. However, if you long for more air time, you can also sign up for longer 90-minute cross-country flights. Piano Grande has mild weather throughout the year which makes the situation ideal for this activity. So, even if you have missed the summer and spring seasons, you'll still be in for a treat.

Step Inside Arizona's Upper Antelope Canyon:
When you think 'American canyon', a cave usually comes up to mind. But in reality, the place has more to offer. There are many tourists visiting the canyon, but for something completely different, Upper Antelope Canyon is the place to go.
The place has a narrow opening, a little scary Arizona sand dune, that's been carved by wind and water over millennia into a legitimate natural wonder. Take a guide with you and start your tour early in the morning. You’d love to witness the rocks coming alive with bright beams of light spearing in from above. In Arizona, USA, you’d find Upper Antelope Canyon on a Navajo reservation a few miles east of Page.
Pro-tip: Bring your best camera with you because Upper Antelope is a photographer's dream.
Visit a Once-in-a-Decade Flower Show in Almere, Netherlands
There are literally no words to explain the beauty of Almere when it reaches the blooming spring. There’s an international horticultural exhibition Floriade, which happens only once in ten years. And now, it will happen in 2022. The event starts on April 14th in the Dutch city of Almere and has the aim to promote the message of ‘growing green cities.’
Go there and enjoy seeing the event with countless pavilions, an arboretum, a magnificent greenhouse complex, and a rich art and culture program. The new attraction-built waterside site will also feature 40 country pavilions, lots of yummy food, live music, entertainment shows, workshops, and a cable-car ride that soars over the park.
You’d wonder and not believe it after visiting the world’s ultimate flower show.
Swim in Jellyfish Lake in Palau
There’s a unique lake in the Micronesian country of Palau which is home to millions of jellyfish and that’s why it is called the Jellyfish Lake. It is a popular tourist spot and people love to dive into it, It is relatively harmless since its sting is so light.
It is still crazily frightening for the first five minutes to be unusually surrounded by the sea creatures. Some brush up against your body while some of them come right in front of your eyes. But it is a totally an experience. Just don’t panic, and love the lifetime experience around these innocent cute water beings. It’d be for sure, your all-time favorite bucket list travel adventure.

Dogsled Through the Alaskan Forest:
Alaska is home to the famous Iditarod Sled Dog Race. Thousands of tourists come to the forest and enjoy the journey that spans 1,150 miles across the rugged wilderness from Anchorage to Nome. With this lifetime adventure, you will be able to experience the thrill of this sport firsthand by meeting Iditarod runners and their powerful dogs. Sleighing down from the top will give you chills but it would be worth trying.
Get a Ride in a Hot Air Balloon Over Cappadocia, Turkey
A hot air balloon ride over central Turkey is every wanderer’s dream, and the Cappadocia region gives life to it. The place offers 360-degree views of the famous limestone spires and “fairy chimneys.” Everything looks majestic from the top and you feel yourself up in the seventh sky.
There are hundreds of guides and offers to choose from, but we recommend booking with Kapadokya Balloons, as they are the first company that introduced hot air balloon tourism in Cappadocia. The hot air balloon rides are the best at sunsets and sunrise. You’d definitely enjoy this up-in-the-air experience.
Go on a Canoe Safari in the Okavango Delta, Botswana
Going on safari in Africa is a must-thing when it comes to seeking adventure, but where to start?
The amazing region of Botswana gives you a kick-start. It is a must-visit place for first-timers and experienced safari-goers alike. The place is enriched with wildlife and geographical diversity. To get the best experience, hop on a mokoro canoe. It is one of the most intimate looks to catch the sight of roaming elephants, antelope, and cheetahs, among others.
For a better experience with wildlife, stay at Xigera Safari Lodge. It is known to be one of the most anticipated recent openings on the continent. Double up the entertainment by choosing from the 12 new elevated suites or a baobab tree house for sleeping under the stars.
Sleep Under the Northern Lights:
Ah, the most beautiful natural lights, the Northern Lights. They make you feel like you are in paradise, but the location matters, and so do the other factors.
When it comes to seeing the technicolor phenomenon, you should prefer the winter season, dark and least crowded regions, and timings. The best areas to witness aurora borealis (Northern Lights) are Norway, Greenland, Iceland, Swedish and Finnish Lapland, Scotland, Siberia, Canada, and Alaska. The Arctic area is also one of the planet's best places for light viewing, especially if you get to sleep in the igloo hotels.
Dare to Do the Bridge Climbing
Thrill-seekers won’t think twice when given a chance to climb the mighty Sydney Harbor Bridge. The place is not only a monumental landmark of around 440 feet, but this high walkway is a dream of many. Not many people try this but true climbers challenge their climbing skills. You can also try clambering the rungs of these iconic bridges, where you'll be rewarded with the best panoramic views in the city.
Another unusual thing would be attempting the climb of Sydney Bridge at night if you dare. Brisbane Story Bridge Day and Night Climbs are also popular choices for adventure lovers, with views from the summit spanning the nearby Glass House Mountains and Lamington National Park, alongside New Zealand's Auckland Harbor Bridge Climb.
Swim with Sharks in Australia
There's no better way to check your bravery than diving into the ocean full of sharks. The huge, merciless creatures will be right in front of you. You’d be so close that you can feel the swish of their fins.
Don’t worry, it is not life-threatening because you will be carefully kept inside a metallic box and won't be cast into the open seas to re-enact scenes from Jaws. If anyone starts panicking, they can return to the boat at any time. Go to St Thomas to enjoy Swimming with Sharks at Coral World Ocean Park. Also, there are dolphin pools to say a friendly ‘hello,’ to these cute welcoming creatures.
For those, thinking sharks are a little less ferocious? Try a Mexican Whale Shark Snorkel Adventure where you can dive amidst the world's largest, and decidedly friendlier, fish
