Katy made the most of her worldwide tour whilst visiting Peru. Although the star may be seen as exceptionally glamorous, Katy Perry chucked on her hiking boots and trekked up through the Inca Trail to the ancient citadel. The trek is a 4 day round trip that takes visitors through some of the most spectacular scenery on earth. Where will be next on Katy's bucket list?

The actor Brian Blessed has to be considered half crazy. Not only has he scaled Kilimanjaro, but Brian has attempted to summit Everest not only once, but three times! He made it within 300 meters of the summit. Oh, and he sparred with the Dalai Lama when he was younger..!

I think everyone was shocked when the President of America agreed to join Bear Grylls on a weekend of adventure in Alaska! The pair journeyed across the glacial outwash and through thick forest on their way to see the famed Glacial Exit. Not only this, but Barack has expressed a wish to climb Kilimanjaro after his presidency ends.
