Frightened of sharks? Get up close and personal with the ocean’s most majestic creatures at Beqa Island in Fiji. With no cages or barriers between you and the sharks, you can swim with eight different species including bull sharks, reef sharks, grey nurses and the awe-inspiring tiger shark.

Frightened of heights? Take a bungee jumping adventure up a notch by diving head first into an active volcano. A helicopter will fly you into the caldera of a volcano near Pucon, Chile, so you can bungee-jump within 200m of molten lava below.

Frightened of speed? Some of the world’s best desert dunes are in the Wahiba Sands, a two-hour drive from Muscat, the capital of Oman. With many about 100m in height, this is the perfect place for some extreme sandboarding action. If you’re not prepared to fly down the dunes standing up, you can warm up by tobogganing down instead.

Frightened of rats? Karni Mata Temple in Rajasthan, India, is just what you need to face your fears. Also called the Temple of the Rats, it’s famous for both its beautiful architecture and the 20,000-odd rats that call it home.
