Afraid of heights or can’t swim? Or perhaps you don’t have a kayak? Not to worry, just check out some of our favorite GoPro videos from the last year. These cameras can go just about everywhere and that’s exactly what David Lama, Rafa Ortiz, and more have proved. With the ability to shoot in high-definition and 4K, GoPros give you the vivid feeling of flying and the sensation of swimming without you ever leaving your desk.

Rafa, is that you? Kayak in a cave

Where did you go: Rafa Ortiz takes you deep into the heart of the cave system in Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park.

How pro did they go? 5. Not the biggest rapids Ortiz has hit, but they take on a whole new meaning when the lights are turned off.

Deep dive on one breath and a GoPro

Where did you go? 34.5m deep down in the Nemo Pool.

How pro did they go? 7. Anyone who can shrink their lungs to the size of an orange, control their heart beat to 37bpm, still be athletic, and not forget to hit 'play' on their GoPro deserves a solid high-five.

Feel higher than high

Where did you go? David Lama brings you high into the Himalayas on the Nepal and Tibet boarder.

How pro did they go? 10. Not only did Lama conquer a new mountain here, but this video also makes those who are less inclined towards heights jump out of their seat, look away, and shout: NO WAY!

Feel like you’re running white water

Where did you go? The island of New Britain, off the coast of Papua New Guinea.

How pro did they go? 7. Did you hear that guy shout to paddle hard? Yeah, that's because his life literally depended on it.

Flips, tricks, flying, and a GoPro

Where did you go? Tim Alongi takes you above Mont Blanc in this whirlwind of a GoPro video.

How pro did he go? 8.7. Upside down is pretty pro.

Outrun an avalanche

Where did you go? Valentin Delluc takes you to the North Face of the Aguille du Midi.

How pro did they go? 15. He just outran an avalanche. Mic drop.

Keen to feel a little seasick? This 70 second video might have you feeling a little queasy. Or want to soar with an eagle? This is just beyond amazing.
