If you're a thrill-seeker, there are lots of places in the world to find the most extreme adventures. But where can you find them? Well, from the cold region of Alaska to the scorching deserts of Qatar, here are some of the spine-tingling and adrenaline-pumping activities that the world can offer to everyone.

Iditarod Sled Dog Race (Alaska, USA). Participants traverse this 1,000-mile journey that takes about eight days or more to finish. According to the Iditarod website, the winner of the race is determined by the fastest musher and dogs without the help of others.

Exploring Abandoned Nuclear Power Plants (Ukraine and Philippines). Chernobyl, Ukraine was struck by disaster when a section of its nuclear power plant exploded. Many years have passed and the abandoned town is now a tourist attraction where people pay to see wild animals thriving in the area. If you prefer a lesser extreme version, check out the unused 30-year old Bataan Nuclear Power Plant in the Philippines.

Deadly Waves Of Teahupo'o, Tahiti. According to CNN, This place is known to have the heaviest and most dangerous waves in the world but riding these waves is highly-rewarding for most surfers. Only brave souls would risk their lives just to have this once in a lifetime experience.

Kayaking The Inga Rapids Of The Congo River. This river has the world's largest rapids which include dangerous sections comprised of whirlpools and waterfalls. In fact, kayaker Steve Fisher was given an award for being one of the National Geographic's Adventurers of the Year because he attempted the deadly rapids.

Great White Shark Diving In Gansbaai, South Africa. If you dream of meeting sharks face to face then visit South Africa and try out the White Shark Diving Company. You basically stay inside a submerged cage and observe these giant creatures up close in their natural habitat.

If you're really searching for action-packed activities, plan your trip in some of these places. You'll definitely satisfy your cravings with these thrilling adventures.
