Fit Travel: 10 Places to Get High Around the World

Itching for adventure? Here are the craziest, adrenaline-pumping high-altitude activities—from jetpacking over the Florida Keys to skydiving in Nepal.
When you think of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, you probably think scuba diving. But with new helicopter tours being offered over the world’s largest coral reef system, you can join an even more elite group of people who have admired this natural wonder from above. Flights take off from Cairns and other Northeast Australian cities and include aerial views of rainforest-fringed coasts, pristine white beaches, and natch, the unique coral formations and marine life of the reef.

HOW TO GET HIGH: Contact GBR Helicopters, starting at $370 for 30 minutes and up to $546 for an hour.
