Top 12 Destinations for Adventure Travel


By Charlie Kelly

Contrary to the false narrative it gets, adventure traveling isn’t necessarily about swimming with sharks, or heading over to NASA to sign up for some moon expedition. It does not have to be about taking unnecessary risks either. Rather, it is often about exploring parts of the world that goes way beyond taking in the sun and gazing at the stars. You want to make sure you use all that natural energy to catch some fun and push beyond limits – in a safe way that is.

If you’re looking to do any of the below adventures, we highly recommend to check out Bookmundi as they offer tours and adventures around the world. Without further ado, here are the top 12 destinations to consider for some adventure travel.



1.

HIKING THE INCA TRAIL AT PERU

[post_ads]The Inca Trail is undisputed among the most iconic trek destinations in South America. It is so popular among tourists, and maybe a bit overdone, however, this is easily justifiable. The Inca Trail gives you access to not just amazing scenic views, but also an opportunity to explore its cultural background and hike in the path of an ancient civilization – you get to discover the forgotten city of Machu Picchu!

Due to the massive amount of tourists this place attracts, the Peruvian Government restricted the number of people allowed to walk the trail daily to 500; so it helps if you plan your visit ahead of your desired date and also be aware that the Inca Route is usually closed in February for maintenance.



2.

PARAGLIDING AT LEFKADA, GREECE

A one-in-a-kind activity for those seeking a thrilling adventure. If tandem is something you have a fascination with, then what better way to feed the adrenaline junkie in you than to go paragliding at one of the most enchanting places in Europe? The para glide at Lefkada will have you soaring high above the ground as your breath is taken away by stunning views of the Ionian Sea cascaded by the Lefkadian shores. You do not need prior training to para glide at Lefkada, as seasoned professionals are available to make your flight possible and risk-free.

SURFING AT THE MENTAWAI ISLANDS, INDONESIA

The Mentawaii Islands is located off the western coast of Sumatra and luckily possesses some of the best waves that is out there. The waves here can be as high as 15 feet with perfect handlers on both sides. This is why Mentawaii is a premium destination for surfers all over the globe. The waters are warm and are beautifully scattered with reefs and there are many uncharted territories to explore here. The best time to visit Mentawaii is between March, October and December, as the temperature is consistent and favorable for surfers.



4.

SPOT RARE WILDLIFE AT ETOSHA, NAMIBIA

[post_ads]Namibia is known for its unique wildlife safaris and resorts, however if you want to experience real adventure staring at some of the rarest big cats of our time, then you should head over to Etosha National Park. It is home to Africa’s tallest elephants, lots of cheetahs and of course, the highlight being the almost-extinct black rhino. You might want to dedicate perhaps a day or two to fully adventure through the 22,000sq of the Etosha National Park. Also, while on tour do not leave your vehicle for any reason except for recesses.



5.

SCUBA DIVE AT THE YONGALA, AUSTRALIA

The SS Yongala was a ship that ended up shattered underneath the sea in 1911 and claimed the lives of all passengers on board. Today it serves as one of the most iconic dive sites in Australia, with more than 10,000 people diving through the ruins yearly. The diving experience at The Yongala is one of a kind. Dive through the shipwreck, take a boat trip and at the end of it all, head to the shores for an Aussie BBQ.

6.

TREKKING ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP, NEPAL

The Annapurna base camp trek is one of the world’s best trekking destinations. Located in Nepal, this trek will expose you to its local culture in the Himalayas of Nepal. The route here takes you through pleasant scenery and charming landscapes with little villages such as the Magar decorating each side. The trek will also take you through slightly thick alpine forests and lush green vegetation, until you arrive at a height of 4130m to the base camp. While at it, you can try out the hot spring near a place called “Jhinu Danda;” the spring is believed to be a spiritual cleansing spot. The best time to trek the Annapurna base camp is between mid-September to November (fall) and March –May (spring) as weather conditions are favorable during these periods.



7.

KAYAKING AND CLIMBING OVER GLACIERS AT THE MENDENHALL ICE CAVES, ALASKA

[post_ads]If you want to dive into extremely cold destinations, then Alaska should be on your list. The Mendenhall ice caves located at Juneau, Alaska is a breathtaking ice cave with a mystical feel, where water sprouts from rocks under a blue-lit ceiling matched with crystals of glaciers reflecting about. The ice caves can be found inside a hollow glacier which is only accessible through a kayak to the glacier, which you then have to climb over. The glaciers are however melting fast by the day, due to global warming.



8.

FREE FALL AT SKYDIVE DUBAI

Skydiving is a common outdoor activity in Dubai, due to its sunny weather matched with intense views over the Palm Jumeirah and Arabian Desert. You do not need to have any experience whatsoever to enjoy an adrenaline-filled jump from a plane, as qualified professionals are available to make sure you get back to the ground in one piece. The amazing part about this is, you are given video footage of all your jumps! Talk about memory preservation. Make sure you convert your money to Dubai currency (Dirhams) before arriving at the desert campus, as they do not accept any other currency other than dirhams, and American Express cards aren’t allowed. Also the cafes at Skydive Dubai accept only cash (Dirhams).

9.

RAFTING AT OTTAWA RIVER, CANADA

Get your life vests and helmets ready because rafting at Ottawa River is going to be an experience of a lifetime! The river is home to rafters of all levels and from all phases of the earth, the waters are quite lukewarm and calm with faster zones for an even more heart racing sensation. There are about three options available for you; you can join the big rafts & adventure or the sports raft & ultimate adventure, or perhaps settle for a traditional family rafting. Prices may vary, depending on where you choose to raft.



10.

SKIING AT MURREN, SWITZERLAND

[post_ads]Have yourself feeling like a mini James Bond at the scenic Murren resort in Switzerland, the downhill slope here is among the longest in the world, thus giving you a prolonged delight when you ski. The Murren-Schilthorn ski area covers 51 km of ski runs while the Jungfrau ski area covers 213 km. The resort which sits at an altitude between 1650 to 3000 km above sea level is surrounded by a mountain and is definitely a place for all skiing adventurers.



11.

ZIP LINING IN COSTA RICA

Ziplining is a common activity in Costa Rica; they go hand in hand like the sun and moon. It is the best adventurous activity you could possibly engage in while on a trip to Costa Rica. Just like how we all want a taste of maple syrup while in Canada, you simply can’t visit Costa Rica and not think of zip lining! There are so many canopy tours and zip lining centers littered around, one of the best being the Sky Adventures Arenal Park located outside of La Fortuna which provides stunning views of the Arenal Volcano. There are about 10 zip line cables available with a span of over 200 up to 750 meters. Other destinations to zip line in Costa Rica include Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Jaco, Manuel Antonio and San Luis.

COASTEERING IN PEMBROKESHIRE, WALES

Coasteering might not be a popular outdoor activity, but is it super adventurous and an exhilarating experience meant for every serious thrill seeker. Coasteering is basically wet and wild fun on the rocks. At Pembrokeshire, Wales you get to have four fun activity mashed up in one, from jumping rock to rock, to climbing into rock arches, swimming into sea caves and diving from vertical rock faces, this is a perfect adventure for both individuals and as a family with guides allowing children as young as eight-years old.

While it is fun to challenge yourself, listen to your body and what it is saying while you are out doing adventure activities. Do well to stay away from caves if you are claustrophobic, and avoid anything tandem if you are scared of heights or have a medical condition that recommends against such.

Have fun adventuring and stay safe!
