Abseiling can be a tremendous way to get the blood pumping and get outdoors with some spectacular views. One of the great things about abseiling is that you can do it almost anywhere. But once you’ve exhausted your local possibilities, you might want to look further afield.
Here are 3 of the most popular spots for abseiling the world has to offer.
Table Mountain: Cape Town, South Africa
Towering 3560 ft above sea level, Table Mountain gives breath-taking views over Cape town and the South Atlantic Ocean. Join thousands of tourists every year who carry out the world’s longest commercial abseil 112 meters down the top of the mountain.
The Lost World: Waitomo, New Zealand
Descend 328 ft through a crag in the ground and experience the exhilarating sensation of birds flying beneath you as you lower yourself through mist towards the bubbling stream below. Waitomo Adventures offer epic abseiling tours which even include underground abseiling.
Snowdonia National Park: Snowdonia, Wales
Snowdonia is famous for being the tallest mountain range in Britain. So it might be surprising to learn that the best abseiling spots are not on the mountains, but under them. The adventure company Go Below leads guided tours 1,300 ft. below the mountains in an old mining complex.
