Calling all daredevils: Look no further for your next adrenaline-filled vacation. These four destinations around the world offer brave souls a way to explore new heights from the tops of bridges to the edges of skyscrapers.

 

Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia

Take in panoramic views of one of the most beautiful harbours on earth with BridgeClimb Sydney. Instructors will harness you in and then guide you step by step up the arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge until you’re 439 feet above sea level and in the heart of the harbor. Want to take it to the next level? Do a night or dawn climb in the darkness.

 

Little Belt Bridge in Denmark

BridgeWalking on Little Belt Bridge in Denmark is unlike any experience offered in Europe. Your guide will lead you 196 feet above the water while giving you a tour of the bridge architecture, history and nature around Lillebælt. You will feel the bridge shake as a train rumbles over and cars speed 65 feet below!

 

CN Tower in Toronto

The EdgeWalk at the CN Tower is the world’s highest hands-free walk. You’re rewarded with both 360-degree breathtaking views and a rush of adrenaline that lingers long after your feet are back on solid ground. Groups of eight are whisked up 116 stories over Toronto and onto a five-foot wide platform while strapped into an overhead safety rail circling the tower. Seasoned guides encourage you to push your limits by peeping your toes over the edge of the metal platform and leaning forward and backward over the edge.

 

The Jin Mao Tower SkyWalk

The SkyWalk Experience takes place on the 88th floor of one of the tallest buildings in the world, location in Lujiazui. Standing at 1,380 feet, the Jin Mao Tower offers a “wander in the cloud” experience where adventure-seekers can walk around outdoor glass skywalk without rails. It’s time to test your limits!
