    adventure = an unusual, exciting, and daring experience
    Going on a walking trip to the Himalaya was a great adventure

    peril = a situation of serious and immediate danger
    The baby was in peril of being squashed by the runaway car.

    danger =
    the possibility of suffering harm
    Whatever you do, do not put the children in danger.
