We all know Las Vegas as a party destination – we’ve all heard the stories and we know people that have come and had their bachelor/bachelorette parties here, and many of us have seen or are familiar with The Bachelor. But what makes Vegas special isn’t just the gambling and the partying – it’s the chance to live in excess, to take things to the next level and get away with doing it – it is, in short, a chance to live a life o f extreme adventure. And if adventure is what you’re looking for, Las Vegas will answer.

Starting the list off at Extreme Adventure in Las Vegas is a sunset helicopter trip to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. Seeing the Grand Canyon by helicopter is, if you’ll mind the pun, an unparalleled experience, and seeing it during sunset is downright majestic. Jump aboard, strap in, and bring the camera.

Next up: fighter pilot school. If you ever harbored dreams of being the Red Baron or ever dreamed of being a fighter pilot, now’s your chance. Learn the skies in a single prop and perform barrel-rolls, loop-de-loops and other aerobatic maneuvers all while dangling precariously over the Mojave Desert. Adrenaline pumping and one-of-a-kind, if you like to fly, fighter pilot school is for you

If you prefer your adventures more land based, consider a romp through the Mojave in a dune buggy. These little four wheels of fury are reminiscent of Mad Max and you too can speed through the martian terrain at high speed and get your fair share of dessert experience. The Las Vegas dune buggy experience is a land-lovers experience and you’ll likely see some big horn sheep and ancient petroglyphs while blazing through the Valley of Fire state park.

Last up – take a trip white water rafting through the Grand Canyon. Can you even imagine anything more spectacular? Leave from your hotel and spend the day in utter beauty having the time of your life channeling over rocks and rapids with the icy Colorado beneath you. The best thing about this extreme adventure? You can bring the whole family.

Additional adventure includes skydiving Las Vegas, and even braving the blackjack tables at Caesar’s Palace. Hey, let’s be honest – it’s a war out there.
