Sports attract all sorts, and outdoor activities appeal to almost everyone. But for some, outdoors isn’t far enough; they go far outside mainstream fun to find fulfilment.

Fond of a sail on the reservoir? Frank Dye took his dinghy across the notoriously rough North Sea to Iceland and Norway. Mrs Dye made the tea and modelled wind-proof woollen headgear.

How about a walk in the country? Hugh Munro and Alfred Wainwright spent so long climbing dramatic scenery, the landscapes they loved have adopted their names.

Numerous not-so-easy-riders take part in each year’s Race Across America. From the west coast, it covers 3000 miles and doesn’t stop until riders reach the opposite side of the continent. The course goes through 14 states, with climbs totaling 100,000 feet.

Freediving is underwater-swimming without aqualung. Several minutes, sixty feet deep, requires a very deep breath! But the Bajau gent in this video is looking for lunch, not medals: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgRpwESWPLM

Determined canoeist Andrew McAuley drowned just short of achieving his exhausting ambition: to kayak from Tasmania to New Zealand, across 1000 miles of lonely, unforgiving Southern Ocean.

Professional tree-climbing competitions are held around the world. Arborists demonstrate skilled climbing techniques and innovations in equipment…

…but if that’s too low-ball, in 1974 Philippe Petit high-wired a quarter-mile above New York, between the towers of the World Trade Centre. Flares were big, that year…

…but if that wasn’t lofty enough, in 1982 Larry Walters (with no prior experience), attached 42 helium weather balloons to a lawn chair and lifted off. He rose nearly 3 miles until, seeing no other way of getting down, he eventually shot several of the balloons, initiating his descent.

Head4Heights promises the same spirit of adventure, with much safer landings!
