Extreme Adventures

1 Inside the volcano, Iceland

Dropping into the magma chamber of a volcano is a major thrill for intrepid travellers.

Experience some of life’s extreme adventures

The 120m descent in a basket, lowered by a crane, is a 10-minute adrenalin rush in one of the world’s most active volcanic regions.

Fortunately the Thrihnukagigur volcano last erupted 4000 years ago.

The “inside the volcano” tour is a one-off opportunity from June 15-31. It costs 37,000 krona (about $298).

2 The Rickshaw Run, India

A 3500km pan-Indian journey in an auto-rickshaw is a bumpy escapade.

Resembling a covered tricycle with a lawnmower engine, auto-rickshaws have a top speed of 55km/h and are unsuitable for long-distance off-road driving, so an adventure is assured.

The September run is from Shillong to Jaisalmer.

Along the way, drop into Darjeeling, Bodhgaya and Varanasi.

The Rickshaw Run entry fee costs £1395 (about $2250) a team. A team is required to raise £1000 (about $1600) for charity.

3 Camping with emperor penguins, Antarctica

A camping trip in Antarctica is a nature lover’s dream.

And sleeping with the penguins is a reality at Patriot Hills camp, which is near an emperor penguin colony on the remote southern coast of the Weddell Sea.

Guests on the “Polar Dreams” program sleep in two-person, double-lined tents, constructed of a hi-tech nylon stretched over an aluminium frame, with zippered doors and plywood floors.

Australian-owned Adventure Associates has an eight-day camping trip in Antarctica that costs $US65,250 (about $66,882).
