Adventure travel is much more than bragging rights enabling you to say “I did it”. It’s more about expanded horizons, personal growth, achievement and enriching new experiences.
One should never jump out of an airplane with a parachute before learning the ins and outs of skydiving. The same is true with most extreme sports. Yet, adventure travel encompasses much more than sports or dare-devil activities. For example, people interested in knowing more about nature will find great adventure through socially and environmentally responsible exploration of remote natural regions. Expeditions to the Galapagos Islands, polar glaciers or active volcanoes will certainly expand your view of our natural world.
You may find adventure cycling though Europe or by hiking European or Asian mountain trails, while learning the local culture and history of the region. Exploring the rainforests of Costa Rica, a boat trip on the Amazon or a trek to Brazil’s Iguassu Falls embodies learning and discovery, as well as adventure. And don’t forget about the Great Barrier Reef off the northeast coast of Australia. Along the way, you also will discover a greater passion for life as you learn even more about yourself.
Venturing off the beaten path to lands you know little about might take you to places like Mongolia, Morocco or Myanmar to explore ancient cultures and local customs. Closer to home, you might find adventure in geological expeditions through the national parks in the western United States or Canadian Rockies. On the other hand, ski buffs will find adventure in heli-skiing and snowboarding opportunities in Alaska, where the season extends into early summer in some areas.
Only you can define your idea of adventure and we can help you achieve it.
