Feel a quiver of joy in front of the magical landscapes of India or a rush of adrenalin on the waters of South Africa… discover five unforgettable activities for adventurous travellers.

“Dare, dare again, always dare” – those were the rousing words of the revolutionary Danton. A natural adventurer at heart, you do not think twice about jumping in a kayak, ready to tackle the gushing currents of Palmiet River, near Cape Town in South Africa. From there, your kayak rushes through the waters as they meander between green hills. An intense experience.

To the west of Oslo, a trek is awaiting you to discover Preikestolen or Pulpit Rock. After three days of hiking, perched on top of the 604-metre-high plateau, you are rewarded with stunning views of the Norwegian coastline and fjords as far as the eye can see.

A few hours from Mumbai, a new adventure awaits on board a hot-air balloon. Up and away, as you fly over the ochre landscapes of Goa state bathed in the soft glowing twilight. This magical moment will stay in your memory for years to come.

If you are fond of horse-riding, you will be delighted to get in the saddle in Naples. You can trot for hours along the endless beaches of the region before heading into its shady pine forests.

The Peneda-Gerês National Park, to the north of Porto, welcomes budding yompers for a canyoning expedition down waterfalls as they tumble over surreal-shaped rocky cliffs. Below, the warm turquoise waters beckon you in for a swim. 100% thrills guaranteed.
