Spelunkers unite! These incredible caves should be on top of your travel lists if you are into amazingly unique locations. Caverns are some of the few undiscovered places on our planet and now you can totally explore them.

Spelunking or cave exploration shouldn’t be done on your own, find an appropriate tour for your skill set and get underground. Cave exploration isn’t a new phenomenon but with advanced technology, these types of adventures are becoming more and more accessible.

Check out the most unbelievable caverns on earth and discover the great unknown that lies beneath.

 China

Reed Flute Cave, China

Some of the oldest explored caverns known to man, the Reed Flute Cavern system in China are awaiting your next trip. These caves are full of prehistoric cave drawings that date as far back as the eighth century. These caverns were long lost for decades until refuges used them for asylum during World War II. Now these grottos are set up with an array of bright colored lights, illuminating the stalactites and stalagmites for an astonishing display.   Book a trip and explore these natural wonders and see what all the hype is about.

 Vietnam

Son Doong Cave, Vietnam

The biggest cave known to mankind was only discovered in 2009, meaning we have so much yet to find. Who knows if we’ll ever find a bigger cavern system? These caverns are almost 6 miles long and wide enough for a Boeing 747 to fly through! That’s insane, and I have to see this place for myself. Son Doong has been open to the public since 2013 but you must book an official expedition to see it. I recommend finding how to make this trip happen. Vietnam is one of the most affordable places to travel to in Asia, so get pt booking.

 

Fingal’s Cave, Scotland

This cave system in Scotland is famous for its geometrical patterns formed by ancient lava flows. The Hexagon shaped cylindrical tubes are perfectly shaped as if they were cut with tools.

The giant stone columns are an amazing site and you won’t believe that they aren’t man made. Tourists can book a boat to cruise by the entrance of the grotto and some are even allowed to venture inside the system.

 

Marble caves, Chile

These marble caverns were eroded over centuries by ocean waves, creating some of the most beautiful and unique caves on Earth. The average traveler will never step foot in these caves as the nearest major airport is over 500 miles away. A serious adventurer will find a way and their perseverance will certainly pay off.

Kverkfjoll Ice caves, Iceland

These ice caves are literally carved out of massive glaciers by volcanic activity beneath the surface. The ice grottos are formed by magma flows and are only reachable by guided tours. Be careful of your step, as some areas are susceptible to collapse as the temperatures rise. These ice formations are beautiful and are not likely to be around in 50 years.

 glowworms

Waitomo Glowworm Caves, New Zealand

The most magical of all caves, the Waitomo Glowworm Caverns in New Zealand, illuminates an eerie blue light. These caves are home to the country’s iconic glowworms and the light they produce is enchanting.  These caves are easily manageable by multiple ways including hikes and zip-line tours. If you have caves on your bucket list, make sure these caves are first on the list.

 

Go spelunking to discover your adventurous side.

The Most Unbelievable Surfing Destinations

Pack up your bags, but don’t forget your surfboard and head to one of the world’s best surf destinations.

So you like to hang ten on some tubular waves. That’s cool, but are you getting tired of shredding the same waves on the same beaches with the same boneheads? Then it’s time to get out there and experience surfing in other beautiful destinations across the world. You will be blown away at how much gnarlier it is to go shred with some killer bros and babes that don’t speak the same language as you. You will most likely learn a lot and even catch some waves that are different from the ones you see. There is nothing as thrilling as redefining surfing as you know it by hanging ten out of town. So pack up your bags, but don’t forget your surfboard and head to one of the world’s best surf destinations.

 

Ulu Watu, Bali
When most people think of Ulu Watu, Bali they think of the old Hindu temple that outdates all other Bali Hindu temples. Either that or they think “Whoa, what a gnarly name!” But many people don’t know that Ulu Watu is also home to some seriously awesome waves that are killer to surf in. If you visit the temple you can look down off the cliffs and see surfers getting their shred on. You’ll want to jump off the cliff and join the surfers below. However, don’t jump off the cliff, there are much easier ways to get down with far less risk of serious injury. Once you get down there you’ll surf the day away.

 

Bundoran, Ireland
This is one place where you’ll need to pack a wetsuit. Bundoran is known as a “cold water Eden” because there are constant swells that are awesome to surf. Most people don’t associate Ireland with surfing but a quick walk through the town would leave you to believe that Ireland has always been a surfer’s paradise. There are plenty of awesome surf shops and even restaurants and cafes offer discounts to visiting surfers. Now that’s what I call totally tubular!

 

 

Jeffreys Bay, South Africa
No surfing list would be complete without mentioning wonderful South Africa. In fact, this is where the pros surf during the Billabong Pro ASP World Tour surfing competition. This place is well known as one of the best-surfing destinations in the world and was even featured in films, has anyone heard of Endless Summer? Yeah, it was filmed here. Now it’s time for you to enjoy your own endless summer by hopping on a plane and hitting Jeffreys Bay.

 

 

Huntington Beach, CA
Huntington Beach is what is known by locals as Surf City, U.S.A. which is why tons of surfers flock over here to see the wonder that is a total surfer’s paradise. They have a bunch of different beaches that are good for different types of surfers. If you ride a longboard you hit one beach and if you ride a shortboard you hit another. Now that’s what I call surfing convenience.

Check Out America’s Best Halloween Attractions

We have compiled a list of the scariest Halloween attractions we’ve ever seen that are all guaranteed to spook you silly.

Published

on

Halloween is our favorite time of year. What better time to go get super spooked and then go home and hide under your blankets until the sun comes up the next day? I can’t think of a better way to spend my time than to be completely terrified. The problem is, once you’ve been thoroughly freaked, then it’s hard to freak off again.
We have compiled a list of the scariest Halloween attractions we’ve ever seen that are all guaranteed to spook you silly.

 

 

Erebus Haunted Attraction
If you’re looking to scream then head to Pontiac, MI. Here you’ll find the Erebus which is a huge 4-story haunted house that is chocked full of spooky stuff. You’ll have plenty of time to tour the gigantic house but just make sure you have someone to squeeze on or else you might just go loony.

 

 

Bennett’s Curse
In Jessup, MD you will find the award-winning Bennett’s Curse. A haunted attraction that is truly one-of-a-kind and utilizes technology to ensure you are one scared mama. There are 3 houses to fit your personal preference, you can get scared by vampires, zombies or just head to the Sanctuary of Insanity if you’re feeling a little cuckoo.

 

Witches of New Salem
Watches of New Salem is a corn maze that is a tad more frightful than the rest. You will take a tour of this horrifying maze all while being stalked by some serious creeps. You will shriek with fright. Be sure to bring an extra pair of underwear.

 

 

Dent Schoolhouse
This haunted schoolhouse in Cincinnati is fun because it plays on an old history. According to the legend of the Dent Schoolhouse, there was a very naughty janitor who killed the students that made fun of him. So, they decide to take you on a tour of this place right around Halloween. If that doesn’t sound eerie then I think you need to get your eerie meter checked.

 

Hangman’s House of Horrors
This place in Fort Worth, TX has a wild collection of terrifying attractions. Like the Dent Schoolhouse it is also based on a legend, the legend of Hezekiah Jones. Our favorite has to be the Hillbillies Revenge but they’re all fun and tantalizingly terror-filled. But if you have some lily-livered friends along for the ride, they don’t have to go to the scary houses, they can spend their time singing karaoke or listening to live music.

 

 

Terror Behind the Walls
this place used to be a horrible prison in Pensylvania but now it is just used for making your spine tingle. You can hit the outdoor garden maze or just take a tour of the ghostly prison insides. Either way, you will leave this prison shaking with fear. This is definitely one trip to remember.

 

 

ESP’s Night Watch
The Eastern State Penitentiary is a super-old prison that many say is haunted. It sure looks haunted too. What’s so crazy about this haunted prison tour is that you’re not lead anywhere. You just get handed a flash light and you explore all on your own. Now that’s spooky!
