Top Five Once in a Lifetime Holiday Experiences

Everyone has a list of amazing things they'd like to do...  So here is our top five once in a lifetime holiday experiences. What's on your list?   [caption id="attachment_1884" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Take a helicopter ride over the eerie island of Montserrat, devastated by volcanic eruptions in 1995."]Take a helicopter ride over Montserrat[/caption] 1)    Antigua – Fly  in a Helicopter Over Montserrat Last ravaged by a volcanic eruption in the 1995, Montserrat is only easily accessed by helicopter due to the nature of an exclusion zone which is in place on the island. Tours operate from neighbouring Antigua and this will provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to fly over the live volcano, gazing over the deserted former capital of Plymouth. Nothing can prepare you for this incredible experience.   [caption id="attachment_1883" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb, Australia"]Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb, Australia[/caption] 2)    Sydney, Australia - Climb Sydney Harbour Bridge Climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge is a number one for many people taking holidays in Australia. Come rain or shine this special experience will offer you spectacular views of the city, along with a real sense of achievement at having done the climb.   [caption id="attachment_1879" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="See another world when you swim with turtles in Barbados"]Swim with turtles in Barbados[/caption] 3)    Barbados - Swimming with Turtles There are many places where you can holiday in the Caribbean and swim with turtles these days. Barbados harbours large Hawksbill Turtles off of Payne’s Bay Beach which is accessible by a number of local tour boats. The reason this experience is so special is because the turtles are wild and in no way captive like in many other countries. Get up close and personal with these magnificent creatures.   [caption id="attachment_1881" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Enjoy an exhilarating 4x4 experience over the Icelandic glaciers"]Enjoy an exhilarating 4x4 experience over the Icelandic glaciers[/caption] 4)    Reykjavik, Iceland - Glacier 4x4 Adventure Reykjavik is one of the few places with accessible glaciers upon which you can drive or hike. Embark on a super 4x4 tour which will take you across their bumpy surfaces, or get your walking boots ready for a trek with a difference. This is perfect for the adventurous!   [caption id="attachment_1880" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Climb to the top of Gaudi's famously unfinished Segrada Familia in Barcelona"]Climb to the top of the Segrada Familia in Barcelona[/caption] 5)    Barcelona, Spain – Climb the Sagrada Familia The pointed turrets of this famous cathedral loom over the vibrant city of Barcelona forming a kind of gothic crown designed by Gaudi. The construction of this magnificent church began in 1882 and still continues, and if you climb the narrow stairways of its completed towers (or take the lift) you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea, sprawling city and hills beyond.
