With several violent tornadoes in the United States this spring, they were the constant attention of the media. Videos filmed by professionals, amateurs, and storm chasers popped up everywhere.

Storm chasers. These are the thrill seekers who actually seek out severe weather systems and follow them, often getting pretty up close and personal. But did you know that there are actual tourism companies that allow you to take a tour chasing storms?

That’s right. You can sign up (and pay) for the opportunity to track these vicious twisters. For about £1800 depending on the company, you too can pound the ground in the infamous Tornado Alley in the United States, chasing after severe storms. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind adventure, this trip may be for you!
