Choose your own adventure: we'll make it happen
The Devil's Swimming Pool
Even the most timid among us has at least one great adventure inside of them. What's yours? Bing is currently offering to make your adventure dreams come true - all you have to do is visit the website, and tell them what you'd like to do.
Canyoning, drumming, diving, hot-air ballooning - no dream is too big or too small. If you want to see how it's done, watch the story of Ines, who wanted to climb a tree in the rainforest (one of the highest trees in the Amazon, fyi) and Bing made it happen. To get you started, we've put down our top adventure travel experiences:
Experience the inside of a volcano
Iceland is one of the most volcanic regions in the world. Over a special six-week period this summer, scientists are allowing the public to see the inside of a dormant volcano named Thrihnukagigur. As part of the one-off tour, you will get to go 120 metres below the surface of the earth to see the volcano's magma chamber.
New Zealand heli-surf tour
Some of the best surfing beaches in New Zealand are only accessible by air. As part of this heli-surf tour, you get to tour some of the most beautiful beaches by helicopter to pick the best surfing spots.
Swimming on the edge of a waterfall
The Victoria Falls are 100 metres in height, and the sound of thundering water isn't enough to put some adventure seekers off from splashing about in the world's most terrifying swimming pool. Although it looks insane, it's perfectly safe to swim in from September to December due to low water levels.
There are literally thousands of unclimbed and unskied peaks in British Columbia, but some of the most spectacular are in the Coast Mountains, including the 2,400-metre Spectrum Range and Rainbow Ranges. Skiers with the stamina and ambition to make the trek into the mountains can make genuine first climbing ascents and first skiing descents to their hearts' content.
Fly-fishing in Mongolia
Taimen are the largest salmonid - think trout and salmon - in the world, with the aggressive toothy fish reaching 100 to 150 centimetres. Mongolia is one of the last refuges of the sport species, and adventurous anglers, often using ground squirrels as bait, are still finding untouched fishing tributaries off the Eg and Urr rivers in the country's north.
The unscaled mountain range
For several years, the Japanese mountaineer Tamotsu Nakamura has catalogued the unclimbed mountains in the eastern Tibetan Nyainqentanglha range, which is tightly controlled by the Chinese government. His photos of the unclimbed peaks have the mountaineering world drooling. According to one estimate the area has 164 mountains over 6,000 metres, with 159 yet to be summited.
Animal lovers and the squeamish look away now. Players of goat polo (or buzkashi) don't ride the bleating animals but rather use them as the ball. This traditional Afghan game, now played throughout central Asia, involves players on horseback attempting to get a goat or calf carcass into a scoring circle at their opponents' end of the field of play (apparently a calf carcass is preferred because it's less likely to fall apart).
Buzkashi is a tough game - players carry whips to fend off opposing players and wear heavy boots, clothes and head protection. This being central Asia, it's also not a sport that women are permitted to play. Afghanistan is probably off the cards now, but the sport is also played in parts of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.
The clavadistas (cliff divers) of Acapulco put on a show of machismo and daring several times a day, which you can watch from the comfort of the restaurant at El Mirador Acapulco Hotel.
Call it daring, call it crazy - whichever - it involves diving 40 metres off a cliff down the sides of a narrow rocky inlet into less than three metres of water. The trick is to time the dive so you hit the water when a regular tidal surge has made it deep enough. The divers pray to a shrine before their leap of faith and the more exuberant may even throw in a somersault or spin on their headlong descent.
Bing wants you to get out there and start doing things you've always wanted to do and has recently launched the Bing is for Doing campaign whereby Bing is asking Brits to tell it what they really want to do in life. Bing will then make the best ones happen and has already flown one lucky person to the Amazon rainforest to fulfill a childhood dream . You can watch that that video here, and to tell Bing what you want to do why not visit facebook.com/binguk.
