7 Outrageous Outdoor Adventure Activities

  • 3 of 8

2. BASE Jumping

If the thought of jumping out of a plane with a parachute is absolutely terrifying, BASE jumping probably isn’t for you. BASE jumpers take their dives from buildings, antennas, spans (bridges), or earth (cliffs), where the acronym BASE comes from. The free-fall last only a few seconds, and jumpers have to be smart about when they release the parachute, and have only a small window of time to find a safe place to land. Only the truly gutsy will attempt this sport — and even then, BASE jumping is often considered the most dangerous recreational activity on the planet.
