Jutting out of the mountain above Skjeggedal in Odda, Norway, this outcropping’s name literally translates to “Trolls Tongue” in Norwegian.
Tyrol Platform, Austria
At first glance this observation deck located almost 11,000 feet above Stubai glacier near Tyrol, Austria looks like little more than a high dive platform. The only way to get here is to take a cable car and then climb a long staircase to the top. On clear days though, the journey is worth it with views reaching as far as Venice, Italy.
Gozo Cliffs, Malta
Dropping straight down into the Mediterranean Sea these insanely high outcroppings are perfect for cliff diving, or maybe just watching the sunset if you want to play it safe.
Llangollen Canal, Wales
Just east of Llangollen, Wales you will find the world’s longest and highest aqueduct. Every year it ferries thousands of boats across its narrow span and with no guard rails the ride can be a bit annerving as the boat slams against the metal sides of the trough.
Also known as the Preacher’s Pulpit, visiting this 600 meter high cliff is not recommended in winter or spring when the path to the top is paved with ice. In summer though the view of the valley below is breathtaking.
Meteora Monasteries, Greece
The surreal Meteora monasteries of Greece were originally built by monks to be a refuge from Turkish invaders and until 100 years ago there wasn’t any way to get to them except for rope ladders. Today, however, you can take a cable car or walk up the perilous staircase cut into the stone.
