Itching for adventure? Here are the craziest, adrenaline-pumping high-altitude activities—from jetpacking over the Florida Keys to skydiving in Nepal.
Seaplane Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Seaplanes are unique in their ability to both soar high over skyscrapers or mountains and also to limbo low, right down to sea level. And Dubai is a location that takes advantage of both these opportunities. Passengers can get eye -level with the world’s only seven-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab; the world’s tallest building, the Burj Dubai; and other landmarks, including The World Islands and the Dubai Atlantis. What went up then goes down, zipping along the famous coastline before making a dramatic water landing in the Persian Gulf.
HOW TO GET HIGH: Contact Arabia Horizons, $329 per passenger.
