3. Shark diving, Fiji

Fancy scuba diving with big man-eater sharks? How about when the sharks are getting fed and you don’t have a cage? Well that’s exactly what you can do at Beqa Lagoon, off Pacific Harbour, on Fiji’s Viti Levu Island. Started by South African Brandon Paige, the fish feeding dives involve taking cover behind a small ocean wall while the dive crew police the visitors. Large bull sharks are almost always part of the action, while a lone tiger shark often drops by. From £103pp.

4. Bungee jumping, Macau

When it comes to pure, unadulterated terror, it’s still hard to beat a bungee. So why not try the biggest of the lot, all 764ft of it, in Macau.

Indeed, so massive is the record-breaking China-based jump that Kiwi bungee pioneer AJ Hackett and his buddies had to invent a special second generation bungee cord which was able to take the extra pressure, plus drop straighter, meaning you won’t swing into the concrete Macau Tower. That was nice of them. It costs £203pp.

5. Ice climbing, Alaska

Rise above the skiing vs boarding debate by trumping both sides with an arm-wrenching, death-defying ice climbing experience in the frosty surrounds of Alaska’s Valdez.

A regular destination for top climbers since the Seventies, thanks to the massive, stunning blue ice to be found in Keystone Canyon, plus the region’s many frozen waterfalls, Valdez has developed into a major hotspot for the ice lovers of the world. Full-day guided climbs of the Worthington Glacier cost from £97pp.
