Your idea of a vacation isn’t lying on the beach soaking up the sun. Instead, you’re the adventurous type, choosing to trade sleeping in for an early morning mountain climb in a far-off destination. Sound familiar? For those of you who dream of replacing a week of work with extreme sports, here’s a list of places that will help you get the adrenaline rush you’re looking for.

1. Australia

Are you prepared for an outback adventure? Australia offers a sprawling, uninhabited terrain for you to explore. Since there aren’t many people who live in the outback, it’s almost completely unspoiled. Expect exotic animals, unlimited wildlife, and exquisite flowers, International Living says. There are group excursions that are offered, but you can choose to do a self-guided tour. Whether you stay for a few days, a few weeks, or even a few months, there are multiple routes for you to pick from. Some of your choices include hiking through the Australian Alps or enjoying a few of Sydney’s beaches. Auswalk offers information and tours that are worth checking out.
