Our life would be boring without adventures. Someone they are poured like snow on their heads, and someone is ready to pay a lot of money for a dose of adrenaline. In this case, the more naturalness in adventure, the more they are valued.
Today there are a few fairly well-known and respectable organizations that enable wealthy people to experience the full range of feelings, even at times and at risk for their lives. But you can not doubt that such unusual adventures will remain in your memory forever.
A single camera in the prison of Bolivia.
In Bolivian La Paz, you can survive an unusual adventure for just 10-100 US dollars. Prisoners of the local colony can conduct a paid tour of the prison blocks. If you fork out, then you can sleep at night in solitary confinement, taking with them at will and friend. I must say that the means of tourists have a special purpose – they are going to improve the territory of the prison and buildings. The same prisoners, who work as guides, noticeably increase their chances of early release. The prison of San Pedro is a real colony, this is a settlement, an independent city inside the prison. Prisoners live here with their wives and children, because the conditions are sometimes even better than at liberty. The administration allowed the prisoners to organize their home market, where for money you can buy any services or the charms of local life. Some prisoners even begin their business in prison. It can be a shoe repair shop, a kiosk with fast food or even a casino. The enterprising chief of the prison, whom many consider corrupt, managed to conclude even an exclusive contract with the Coca-Cola company. As a result, in the territory of the colony, only this producer’s soda is allowed. And competitors Coca-Cola – one of the few prohibitions here. It should be noted that South American prisons are becoming quite popular – some prisoners even conduct their video diaries on YouTube.
Salvation from an uninhabited island.
Which of us in the childhood did not care about the adventures of Robinson Crusoe? We all dreamed of an uninhabited island and a wonderful salvation from it. Today, such an adventure can be experienced on the Baileys near Central America. It is worth it 2500-3000 euros. Experience an unusual experience offers an English travel agency. It offers wealthy people to spend 10 days on an uninhabited island in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. A whole expedition is organized, during which instructors will teach desalination of salt water, a fire without matches, and also to procure food in the sea and on land. The inhabitants of the island will build their shelter from the wreckage of the aircraft. At the end of the course, the group will be “rescued” with the help of a rescue helicopter. But on this adventure does not end, but only begin. According to the scenario, the aircraft crashes right in the open sea. Instructors “die”, and the group has to survive on its own. In the new Robinsons, there is a minimal set of tools on hand, with which they will begin to develop a new island. The survivors will have to set up their new camp, and then the adventure will end with the construction of a life raft. On it robinsons and float to civilization.
Illegal entry into the United States.
Everyone knows that getting a visa to enter the US is not so easy. However, the borders of a great country are not so unassailable. In Mexican El Alberto, you can survive for only $ 20 a unique experience of a secret border crossing. Those who want to feel the whole gamut of risk – barking dogs, shots of border guards and howling sirens. In fact, this is just a reconstruction, because the weapons are not loaded, and the dogs do not bite. Nevertheless, the organizers promise a full range of emotions. Imaginary deserters will first be taken to a pickup truck in the thick of the rainforest. Hence the journey to the United States will begin. The fugitives will hide from the border guards among the lianas, trees and prickly bushes. Supervised by a group of trusted instructors, “coyote”.He will tell you when you need to lie down on the ground, and when – to run, that there are forces. Poor immigrants are forced to constantly look under their feet, because spines, spiders and snakes seem to help the border guards. I must say that the attraction “Night Walk” (La Caminata) for the town of El Alerto has become a true budget-forming business. Before, the dilapidated village became a small prosperous town. Every day hundreds of tourists come here in search of thrills. About the town and its Night walk, even a 15-minute documentary was shot, and it even became a kind of trailer for the original adventure.
In pursuit of the hurricane.
In America there is a tornado alley, where for an amount of 3 thousand dollars you can try yourself as an unusual catcher. There is a whole team that offers to catch up with the hurricane. From the beginning of spring and until the end of summer, professional meteorologists are engaged in the pursuit of tornadoes throughout the country – from Dakota and to Texas. For a year experts observe 30 such destructive natural phenomena. Tourists also arrive in one of the cities of the so-called Alley of tornadoes. It is believed that it is here that the greatest chance to meet with the typhoon. In pursuit of a tornado on heavy minibuses, a well-equipped group of their experts and amateurs rushes. Cars resemble with their insane appearance cars from “Mad Max”. They are sheathed with heavy armor and crammed with satellite equipment. If the group manages to find a tornado, then the technician will tell you which minimum distance can be reached. Tourists were able to explore the tornado nearby and make the most extreme shots in their life. If the days are cloudless, then the guests are shown local attractions – the largest meteorological center in Oklahoma, or a steakhouse with the most generous portions in Texas.
Wild football derby.
In South America, a tourist is waiting for a lot of adventures, there are some that are associated with sports. It is believed that in Buenos Aires, Argentina, you can get an unforgettable experience from Superclassico. This is the name of the derby between the two most important and popular teams of the capital, and the whole country – Boka Juniors and River Plate. A ticket for a duel can be obtained from dealers for $ 200. It should be noted that both teams have succeeded not only in football, but also in disciplinary violations – their fans are considered the most insane in the world. And when on the field there are two Argentinean grandees, at the stadium there is literally the explosion of rage. It is worth noting that the biggest football tragedy is connected with Superclassico. Then a massive fight in the stands led to the death of 71 people, 150 more were injured. The intrigue of the derby lies in the fact that fans of Boca Juniors mostly come from Italian emigrants and represent the working class. But “River Plate” is considered the title club of wealthy industrialists, young rich heirs-majors are ill for it. So far, a slight advantage in personal meetings on account of the “bad guys” from “Boka.” Any football fan of Waterloo should see this, and preparation for the battle begins both sides long before the fight – flags, songs, light and smoke devices are needed.
Fishing today no one is surprised, but in Ketchikan in Alaska offer a deadly version of this truly male hobby. Crab catching in the Bering Sea is indeed quite a dangerous occupation. First of all, because the local waters are rather difficult for navigation. There is a strong wind almost all year round, and the sea is rarely calm. In the results, the deck and mast of the ship are quickly covered with a layer of ice. Fisherman literally have to fight for their own survival – overhead constantly flying iron crabs with crabs, the entire deck is covered with their claws and body parts. All this bites and grabs by the feet, and yet still severe waves and strive to wash the fisherman overboard.Those who are not ready to stay in such conditions for several months with a very likely bonus in the form of head injury are offered a simplified alternative. Several times a month, one of the ships of the Mortal Flotilla enters a commercial raid for three hours. This time is enough to understand all the delights of deadly fishing, hunt for crabs, survive a few troubles and return to shore, feeling like a real man. Join the TV show “Deadly Catch” for just $ 160. Jump to the crater of the volcano.
Jump into a volcano and stay alive? Maybe that’s it! To do this, go to Chile, to the volcano Villarrica. For a risky adventure will have to pay about 10 thousand dollars. Compared with this jump, bungee jumping from a high bridge looks like fun for householders and aging men. In Chile, you can throw yourself at the bungee right into the mouth of a burning volcano. Especially for such an extreme attraction, a helicopter is rented, which hangs 200 meters above the burning crater. The bottom point of the buckle is only a few dozen meters above the boiling lava, so the full gamut of emotions is guaranteed. After jumping into the lake of fire, the helicopter will take the daredevil right on the end of his bungee to the take-off area. Eyewitnesses say that flying over the treetops one can see one of the most picturesque species on the planet. And they came up with such an adventure specifically for the reality show “Fear Factor” on MTV. However, according to numerous requests, this adventure moved from the screens into real life and now anyone can try it.
Private zombie apocalypse.
Those who love zombie horror movies know that survivors often escape only on an island. For example, it could become England. It was there that they came up with a combat attraction “War with the Zombies”. It is located in an abandoned manor in Greater Manchester. The script of the game provides for the transfer of participants to the contaminated zone, which must be cleared of monsters. Participation in such an adventure will cost 150-270 pounds. The recruits have copies of military machines, pistols and weapons. Although such weapons shoot air, it does not become less threatening. It is interesting that participants are invited to choose which side of the conflict to act – zombies are also recruited from fans of thrill. In the case of choosing the dark side, the makeup artists will change their appearance, the instructors will tell you how to effectively cover your foot, believably wheeze and rush at people. Although such a fight seems innocent, some participants are seriously injured. Apparently, zombies have become a part of modern culture, since they are willing to really confront them or on their side.
On the wreckage of the earthquake.
This adventure can be experienced in different parts of the world, for example in Indonesia or in Sumatra. The English came up with what to oppose prim boring. Adrenaline travel agency Disaster Tourism for $ 3000 offers to move to the very epicenter of natural disasters. This could be the site of a recent volcanic eruption, a tsunami or an earthquake. It’s sad, but the program of tours is updated every day. As soon as there is a significant natural disaster somewhere, the agency immediately adds it to the list, inviting those who want to go there immediately. You can order an individual tour. Those who want to visit the crash site of the aircraft or to attend the war zone, it is worth to leave an application on the site. Then Disaster Tourism will organize an appropriate adventure. Rafting on a mountain river on a raft. On the Swedish mountain river Klar-Elven for 340-400 euros you can make a romantic trip on a makeshift raft. In the country there is still a tradition of forest rafting – the cut down trees are tied in rafts, and then they travel by water to the sawmills themselves.Tourists are invited to build a natural water transport on their own, feeling like Gekelberry Finn. The journey begins in a real camp of loggers. They will teach tourists to properly tie their raft, so that it does not crumble in the way and does not let into the water. Councils of masters will help beginners build a boat, which will become a home for travelers for the next seven days. Loggers will tell you how to control a raft, skirk the shoals, rapids and cut through the tree branches that interfere. And at the end of the training course, a week rafting along the river will begin. In it there is time for night fishing, and for stories around the fire, and of course for the most beautiful species of pristine nature. And at the end of the journey, the raft is dismantled and allowed to make furniture and souvenirs. Excursion to the cocaine laboratory.
This excursion is considered to be the most topical one. In the Colombian Machete, tourists are offered a trip to the operating cocaine lab, hidden in dense jungles. Drug dealers learned to earn money even on curious travelers. Travel to the Lost City will cost $ 340, another 20 will have to pay for the opportunity to go directly to the laboratory. I must say that the Lost City itself is a famous historical place, because there was one of the most ancient civilizations of the continent. She is 650 years older than Machu Picchu. The road lies here through 65 kilometers of the jungle, where guerrilla guerrilla bands are still hiding. Sometimes excursions are even canceled when another careless tourist gets to them. In the very same laboratory there is no complicated technique. All of it is essentially one large hotbed, where coca leaves dry on the concrete floor. And this production belongs to the local farmer, who thus stores himself for a comfortable old age. This business executive is kindly telling tourists about all the stages of manufacturing white powder, along the way he will tell all the secrets of the local cocaine mafia. True, after in 2008 the laboratory was written in the press, and it became world-famous, the farmer had to go into the shadows. However, since 2010, excursions to production have resumed. Only now it is forbidden to take photographs. So a curious tourist has a chance to become the first guest of the laboratory, who laid out her picture for everyone to see.
Walk along the river over the precipice.
In Chinese Xi’an, there is an opportunity to experience an unusual adventure for those who are tired of the banal hiking. Until recently, the most dangerous mountain route was the Royal Road in Spain. But in 2012 it was closed for reconstruction, as many sections of the trail simply collapsed. Then the Chinese flocked, which brought their tourist route to the top of the rating. It lies along the mountain Huashan. Outwardly the path looks like a suspension bridge, several kilometers long, wrapped around a rock. This is the way to the top of Huashan. Steps have to be done carefully, because the skylights are shaking. Keep the same for chains, nailed to the rock wall. However, in addition to the thrill, guests will also receive aesthetic pleasure – after all, from the top of the mountain you can survey almost the entire province of Shaanxi with several monasteries. And this extreme trip will cost at least $ 330.
Contact with extraterrestrial civilization.
Not everyone wants to experience earthly adventures. In the village Molebka, that in the Perm region of Russia you can try to come in contact with extraterrestrial civilizations, and absolutely free of charge. The Molebian Triangle is considered to be a unique paranormal zone, even on a global scale. There are hundreds of evidences of the presence of UFOs, displacements of space and time, sound mirages. This area can be explored on its own, and with a guide. In the second case, an experienced stalker will tell about all the sights of the mysterious zone. What are only the names of places – Snake Hill, Black River, Cosmodrome, Witch Rings.Having visited here, even if you do not meet personally aliens, you will surely get acquainted with ufologists. Each of them has something interesting to tell the curious tourists. At one time local and federal authorities even planned to build here a whole center of ufological tourism. It may be good that the anomalous zone has retained its original appearance. So while the mass tourist here has not come yet, there is an opportunity to see with your own eyes all the miracles of Mute and unravel the secrets of the existence of extraterrestrial life.
