If you are the kind of person who takes one epic holiday per year, I have the destination for you. Make this yearâ€™s trip a real adventure and head to Sydney for some truly head-spinning escapades high in the sky. This city is jam-packed with fun things to see and do, from catching a show at the opera house to joining in with the lively nightlife. However, for this article I have picked out three breath-taking activities adventure lovers can enjoy at altitude.
The Sydney Bridge Climb
This is a great opportunity to see the city from a different perspective, literally. You will ascend the 134-metre high bridge in a small group of climbers assisted by an experienced guide. I recommend climbing either at dawn, sunset or at night for a unique view across the harbour, opera house and city. More experienced climbers might opt for the BridgeClimb Express which takes roughly two hours, however, the standard BridgeClimb at three and a half hours allows more time to appreciate the views and catch your breath at the top.
Just outside Sydney, in Wollongong, you can experience the joy of skydiving. The wind rushing past you, the heart-stopping leap out of the plane, the seemingly endless fall â€“ this is one for the true thrill-seekers. Over North Wollongong beach you will soar with a skydiving instructor strapped safely to you as you freefall at around 120 mph after jumping from well over 4000 metres. If you can focus on the ocean below, you might just spot migrating whales or sleek dolphins dancing in the waves.
Youâ€™ll get a commemorative certificate to help you boast to everyone back home about your achievement and you can also purchase a video or picture of you in action in the sky.
Dinner and Drinks in Sydney Tower
After all this excitement you could go back to your hotel and put your feet up or you could head out to one of Sydneyâ€™s most impressive restaurants. The 360 Bar and Dining is located at the top of Sydney Tower: a dizzying 88 stories above the city. This stylish eatery offers a delicious range of dishes rooted in Australian cuisine with a subtle French twist. Whilst sipping a cool glass of wine or an elegant cocktail, you can enjoy stunning views of the skyline at dusk.
Single Trip Travel Insurance for Adrenaline Chasers
It is common sense that before you jump out of a plane it is a good idea to take out single trip travel insurance. In fact, I would recommend taking out a policy with a trusted company well before you leave for your holiday. Look for a single trip travel insurance provider who specialises in covering adrenaline chasers and who are more than happy to cover you whether you are having a sophisticated meal for two or clambering over Sydney bridge.
I hope you have a head for heights! Bon voyage.
