Traveling with friends is the best. You get to explore new cultures, see breathtaking sights, and share experiences that you’ll never forget. But there’s one thing that can ruin all of this: not having enough adventures planned out. So if you want to make sure your time together has epic memories, here are some ideas for adventurous things to do while traveling with your pals.

Team building activities are a common way to spend time with friends and coworkers. While working closely together, it’s essential that you have an enjoyable experience, or else all of your efforts will be for nothing. When coming up with the perfect escape room game adventure, there is more than one path worth taking. The following tips can help you navigate through these different scenarios:

Be prepared. Make sure everyone in the team understands what they’re getting into before booking any tickets or making travel arrangements – plan out team roles ahead of time if necessary. That’ll make things much smoother when facing adversity in the future. If you’re going with a larger group, it’s even more critical that everyone is on the same page.

Be flexible. While planning may be beneficial in some cases, having no plan can work out too. Depending on your team and escape room adventure of interest, you should keep an open mind about all possibilities. If there are slight changes to the plan once inside the escape room, take them into account as best as possible – again: stay adaptable when encountering adversity during your chosen experience.

Avoid errors at all costs. Everyone should speak up if they notice something amiss or see any potential issues before they manifest themselves; not doing so could lead to failure, which would suck.

Are you planning on going out of town with friends? Then, you could also try out a hot air balloon ride. Balloon rides are fun and are one of those activities that even families can enjoy.

It takes a lot of preparation, but worth all the effort to give yourself these memories for many years to come. Additionally, hot air balloon rides are an activity that you can do with all your friends. It is not exclusive to couples or family members, so it’s perfect for traveling out of town.

SkydivingVegas indoor skydiving

Skydiving is one of the most exhilarating experiences you can participate in as a team. You will laugh, scream, shout and ultimately hug your friend after they bring that parachute down to earth. It’s such a fantastic shared moment. 

The best part about skydiving? No matter how much planning or practicing goes into preparation – there are no guarantees here because every jump is different and unpredictable. So whether you plan on jumping solo or taking someone along for a tandem adventure: expect the unexpected and get ready to live life like you’re running out of time – because that is precisely what skydiving feels like.

If this seems too crazy try indoor skydiving first. 

Waterfall Dives

There is nothing better than jumping off a cliff into the water with your best friends. It’s guaranteed to bring you closer together and be an experience of a lifetime. If you’re not convinced yet, check out this article: “Ten Waterfall Dives for Epic Adventures.” These are truly some epic adventures that will keep any thrill-seeker entertained for years. 

There are so many different waterfall dives depending on what type of experience you want to have, so there’s no way that you’ll get bored of these fun activities. A waterfall can be dangerous, so only do these dives if you’re comfortable and have a good support system. If not, there are still tons of other ways to have an epic adventure with your friends. 

The safest type of waterfall diving is from about 20 or 30 ft. But if you want a more intense and challenging experience, go for one higher than 100 feet.

Cave Adventures

Cave adventures can be scary and fun. But, with the right gear and some instruction, you can have an epic experience exploring caves. Here is what you need:

Headlamps or flashlights – red light is best for caving, but you can use whatever works.

Water and snacks to keep hydrated and energized. You don’t want a sugar crash in the middle of your cave adventure. Plus, food gives you energy for moving around and exploring.

A small first aid kit, just in case something happens. It’s always better to be ready than not have anything at all. And slight injuries can get bad quickly while caving, so bring some basics like bandaids or antibiotic ointment.

Boots that cover your ankles are great because they protect against rocks on the ground inside of caves plus give more traction when climbing over wet terrain. Sometimes there are cool things found along cave walls or ceilings, too, so gloves help keep hands clean if touching these areas is necessary during your adventure. They also may come in handy for balancing yourself if needed along surfaces where it isn’t easy to stand up straight.

While exploring a cave, you never know what you will find, so it’s essential to bring extra layers of clothing. A lightweight waterproof rain jacket or sweatshirt can be helpful in case the temperature drops. Also, have some rain gear because caves can flood quickly if there are heavy rains above them. Even though the water inside is usually really cold, it doesn’t mean getting wet won’t cause hypothermia without something extra on your body.

During your caving adventure, prepare for any weather by bringing all seasons appropriate clothes plus items like hats, gloves, and sunglasses. If you’re expecting bad weather, make sure you leave enough time before starting on the trail to get ready for stormy conditions too. You don’t want to be caught out in the open once it starts raining.


Traveling is always fun, but traveling with friends makes the experience even better. Although it can be challenging to find things that everyone likes to do together, you will have an epic adventure if you try out new experiences and adventures as a group. Make memories that last by trying new activities and spending quality time together throughout all of your adventures.
