Cape Town, South Africa
Mountains surrounding the city keep the sprawl in check, which means that even from downtown, you’re never more than a 30-minute drive from higher altitude. To take the city in from above, book a tour with Abseil Africa and head to either Signal Hill or Table Mountain. From the former, you’ll paraglide out over Cape Town, and from the latter, you’ll abseil, or rappel, down 400 feet of vertical rock. Afterward, head north to Atlantis Dunes, where you’ll find a sand desert that’s become a playground for racing quads and sandboarding, which is essentially snowboarding in warm weather. The local outfitter Downhill Adventures can set up either experience.
