5 Adventure Travel Destinations

Are you bored with your average vacations? Are you looking to add a bit of adventure to your life? Then you should consider taking an adventure tour! These are guided travel adventures that can push you to your limits while allowing you to see parts of the world most people will never experience.

Adventure travel might be physically demanding — like mountain climbing or trekking through the wilderness. And sometimes it’s just about doing something out of the ordinary — like swimming with dolphins or exploring history on foot.

There are countless adventure travel destinations all around the world. Here are five to give you better examples, in no particular order.

1. Nepal – For Mountain Sports

 

You’ll find some of the tallest mountain peaks, including Mount Everest, in Nepal. Climb some of the world’s tallest mountains. Take a mountain biking excursion. Go trekking to enjoy the views. If mountain sports are you thing, this might be the adventure travel destination for you.

If you want a bit of mystery in your adventure tour, there’s nothing more mysterious than the Amazon rainforest. Surround yourself with unusual wildlife, or interact with communities and unfamiliar cultures as you travel by boat down the Amazon River.

3. Egypt – An Expedition Cruise of the Nile

 

If you want to take river excursions on a more historical tour, consider the Nile River. You can take in Egypt’s wonders while exploring one of the most famous rivers in the world. If history excites you and you want adventure without the sport, this less physical trip might be your perfect adventure tour.

  1. I can’t decide where I want to go first! I have been to New Zealand before, but it was a few years ago now and we were only able to explore a little bit of the South Island – I would love to return and spend more time seeing the sights, as well as get across to the North Island. I would also love to travel to Egypt – it would have to be in my top 5 destinations that I want to visit – because I think the history there would be amazing to touch and smell.
