Being different can be a badge of honour in the LGBT community. This might be the fashion you wear, the job you do or even the holidays you take. Finding someone who’s as different – as unique – as you are can feel like a celebration of your individuality, especially if you find you can have adventures together.

So if you’re one of those people who enjoys doing weird and wonderful things, and if you’re lucky enough to have found the right person to enable that wild streak, take a look at our top five list of coolest activities for adventurous couples and add them to your bucket list. Even if it’s out of your comfort zone, give it a go, and you will realize two things: a) how much fun the world really is, and b) how much fun you can have with your significant other.

Surf your way to each other’s hearts

Let’s start with the easiest of them all – surfing. Even though it doesn’t give you the same adrenaline rush as some other things from the list, surfing is not an easy task. The first thing you need to do is get your body in shape (and make sure your partner does the same so that you keep your relationship hot), and set off to one of the many popular surfing destinations in the world.

If you’re a newbie, you can always sign up for beginner’s classes. Not only is the sole process of surfing plain awesome, the fact that you’re doing something new with your partner is excellent as well. And you’ll both be wet and half-naked, so that’s another plus.

Did someone say motocross?

You don’t need to be a Hell’s Angel to enjoy motorcycling! Motocross is an excellent adventure for all adrenaline rush seekers. There are a number of places for motocrossing, so you won’t need to leave the country – this could be a great weekend activity.

Note that you really need to take proper care of the gear and clothing for this activity. For example, Alpinestars is a great brand that offers a wide variety of motocross equipment, so you can choose any piece of gear from this brand. However, you really need to have a good level of fitness if you want to experience something like this.

Star in your own “Finding Nemo” sequel

No, we’re not talking about getting your face cartooned in a Disney-like manner – but you can certainly come up with your theme song if you feel like it. Perhaps something like “This shark is sassy while you and I are nasty”? No? Never mind, you’ll think of something better.

Anyhow, shark cage diving is something that not many people choose – I mean, who isn’t scared of sharks? However, if you’re an animal person, love diving and enjoy exploring new things, this just might be the thing you want.

Make sure to do thorough research on where to go exactly, as you really want this activity to be extremely safe and professional. After all, your relationship will even be stronger after this experience – you stared at death in the face together and still managed to speak about it!

Skydiving is perhaps one of the most popular adventures that adrenaline junkies choose, and for a good reason. Embrace this experience, try something new and enjoy the marvellous view that birds have 24/7.

It really is a heart-stopping and mind-boggling experience, so if you’re not scared of heights, make sure to check it out. As an additional bonus, skydiving is offered in many places, so choosing one should be a very easy task.

Again, make sure to look for recommendations, as you really want to skydive in a place where the view is unforgettable.

Visit the dark places

If you’ve seen 127 hours, you know what we’re talking about. If not, don’t watch it.

That is, don’t watch it if you really want to go on this adventure. We’re talking about going caving, and even though it’s not something that many people usually opt for, it’s something that seriously is unforgettable, provided you do your research and see which caves are the most beautiful.

Who knows, maybe you’ll find a very dark place there and smooch a couple of kilometers under the Earth’s surface. Sounds hot, right?

If you choose any of these, you won’t regret it. If you have your partner by your side, the whole experience will be even better, so this could be a great present that you will give each other on the next anniversary or birthday. Forget your fears and seize the day!
