Once-In-A-Lifetime Experiences To Scratch Off Your Bucket List

We all have big dreams. But with busy schedules, and so many other things that always seem to get in the way, we rarely have the chance to make our dreams come true. When it comes to “now or never,” it always feels like we pick “never.” But when it comes to making dreams a reality, it’s better to put things in perspective and take the plunge. Here’s our list of once-in-a-lifetime experiences everyone should cross off their to-do list.

Enjoy a private helicopter tour down to Niagara-on-the-Lake

Taking a flight in your own private helicopter is pretty once-in-a-lifetime. It’s the perfect way to see Toronto from new heights. But National Helicopters do one better. Not only do they offer sight-seeing flights of Toronto, they also offer a sight-seeing trip down to Niagara-on-the-Lake. See Toronto’s sights from the sky before heading down to check out Niagara Falls and then landing for an exclusive lunch and wine tasting at one of Ontario’s best wineries.

Learn to fly in a state-of-the-art flight simulator

The next best thing to actual flying is flight simulation. For flight junkies, Threshold Aviation offers 737NG airliner experience packages for one to four hours of flight. The simulator at Threshold is made from the cockpit of a real Boeing 737 aircraft that used to fly from LA to San Francisco, among other routes. It’s the ultimate authentic experience and an instructor will be there to teach you how to maneuver the plane, lift off, and land the craft.

Try sky diving, without ever getting into an airplane

If you’ve never heard of indoor skydiving, you’ve got to check it out. As crazy as it sounds, it’s a huge rush and an awesome activity to enjoy with friends and family. At iFly, located in Oakville, you can defy the laws of gravity inside a state-of-the-art wind tunnel. This experience gives you insight into what actual skydiving feels like, without having to jump out of an airplane. While it’s completely safe, be prepared to experience some chills, because it will feel totally surreal.

Don’t wait too long to scratch these experience off your bucket. There are always important things that we should be doing, but every once in a while it’s good to try something completely new, from dog sledding through Ontario’s gorgeous countryside to levitating in your own skydiving simulator.
