Itching for adventure? Here are the craziest, adrenaline-pumping high-altitude activities—from jetpacking over the Florida Keys to skydiving in Nepal.
Paraglide Mount Fuji, Japan
Paragliding is a gentle sport: participants glide lightweight and free-flying from a harness held up by a fabric wing. But don’t be fooled by the lack of engine: paraglider flights can last hours and cover many miles. What better location for this mid-air ballet than mild-mannered Japan? Paragliding over Mount Fuji brings you to the rim of the country’s highest mountain as well as an active volcano—surely enough to provide a fix for any adrenaline junkie. And in line with true Japanese hospitality, you’ll be served a piping-hot cup of green tea upon landing.
