Top 3 Extreme Luxury Travel Destinations
Mount Everest – Every extreme sport enthusiast’s bucket list includes climbing this world famous mountain. At 29,029 feet, this mountain has the highest peak in the world.
Mount Thor in Canada – This granite peak, found in Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island, presents the world’s steepest vertical peak at 4,100 feet, making it a favorite for climbers and thrill seekers.
Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador – While Mount Everest may have the highest peak, this mountain is actually closer to the moon and stars due to the fact that the earth is not perfectly round. At 20,703 feet above sea level, this peak brings climbers as close as earthly possible to celestial bodies.

3 Hints for Preparing for Extreme Sporting
Take lessons – Before you set out on your luxury travel extravaganza, seek classes. Professionals offer extreme sport training, often closer to home than you think. Skydiving lessons are available in nearly all bigger cities, and deep sea scuba lessons are offered in towns nowhere near the ocean.
Go with a guide – Many resorts and luxury travel tour companies offer or can arrange guided tours for those interested in a variety of extreme sports, and many include complimentary lessons and equipment usage. One of our favorite luxury travel tour companies is Curimum Eco-Cultural Tours in Rio de Janeiro. They’ll take guests on guided mountain biking tours, hiking to Corcovado, and a variety of other guided tour options, and equipment is included.
Use the right equipment – The cost of a tour or extreme sport experience usually includes use of their equipment, and most are required to maintain quality checks on these items. Don’t be afraid to ask when they last checked for quality. If you prefer to bring your own equipment, be sure your location allows it, and have a professional check it before you use it to prevent malfunctions.
