adventure sites

Dear Nerve Rush Reader: You can’t get enough.

You read the blog. You subscribe to our email. You follow us on Twitter. You like us on Facebook. You circle us on Google. You pin us on Pinterest (okay, maybe not that last one), but you want more.

While we try our best around here to be the ONE and only place you’ll ever need for your gut-wrenching adventure fix, we know that we’re just one of the many places where you can quench your adrenaline thirst. We firmly believe in friendly competition and are big fans of a few other sites around the web that impress and inspire us to keep adventuring. It’s just plain selfish for us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d share some of our favorites with you to help you stay adventurous.

The Adventurists – TheAdventurists.com

The Adventurists are an incredible group of people. Whether their facilitating a horse race across Mongolia, a 1500km adventure through Siberia, or a 3-wheeled motorbike adventure across Peru, they’re up to some amazing things. Focused on doing things throughout the world, they come up with some of the most ridiculous adventures in the world and raise massive buckets of cash for charities in the process. In their words, “We figure since we are rather fond of adventuring in the world we should do our bit to look after it.” We couldn’t agree more. Check out the adventurists and start adventuring all over the world.

The Adrenalist – TheAdrenalist.com

The Adrenalist has Bear Grylls’s face all over it, so you know it has to be pretty good. Sponsored by Degree for Men, The Adrenalist features adventure, speed, extreme sports and gadgets for the adventure seeker.

Whether or not you’re a fan of Degree, you gotta love Bear and the hardcore adrenaline-focused videos, so it’s definitely worth your time to check it out.

Infinity List – InfinityList.com

No, it’s not quite the Impossible List but the Infinity List provides daily updates for the best cinematic sports videos around. Very similar to what we offer up around here, the Inifinity List is beautifully laid out and has some exclusive content that blows our mind. If you check it out, it’s very easy to get lost in the content and spend hours upon hours drooling at the incredible stunts and extreme sports that make you want to get off your computer, climb a high building and base jump off of it. The infinity list will give you just that, an infinity list of incredible activities to put on your bucket list. Check it.

Reddit Adrenaline Porn – Reddit.com/r/AdrenalinePorn/

Something a little different for our last site is Reddit’s Adrenaline Porn sub-reddit. Not really as much of a website as it is a forum, it’s constantly changing . While sometimes hard to dig through for the very best content, Adrenaline Porn has all sorts of content that’s updated by the hour. If you need to feed your addiction, Adrenaline Porn is definitely something you need to pay attention to.

    I also run an adventure blog that does pretty well at http://www.matt-gibson.org. I feature gear reviews, destination guides, and original videos, stories, and photography. Last year included the Vancouver Riots, ice caving and iceberg swimming, whitewater rafting, out of season snowboarding, and hiking in the Philippines ancient Banaue Rice Terraces. Coming soon: swimming with whale, reef, and thresher sharks in the Philippines, chasing pygmy elephants in Borneo, and a series on how to stay in shape while on the road.

    Thank you for this. I have been working on my own adventure website and this was really helpful to find some example websites to look at and figure what sort of things have worked for others. Thank you for the great article and happy adventures.
