If adventure travel is part of your New Year’s Resolution then here are just some ideas that would really make your next year one to remember for years to come.
Travel is one of those things that many us want to do but instead of just your usual beach going holidays where you lay down and relax for 2 weeks straight why not take an active and more exciting approach with adventure travel?
1. Trek the Inca Trail
The ancient lands of Peru is a place of magic and wonder, where you could follow the footsteps of one of the world’s most complex empire; the Incans.
2. Visit the Galapagos Islands
This is one of the world’s most naturally beautiful places with unique wildlife that is not found anywhere else. It is also the location where Charles Darwin introduced the theory of ‘survival of the fittest’. Cruising, scuba diving and visiting the giant tortoises is just part of the fun that could be had here.
3. Wreck Dive the SS President Coolidge
This wreck dive is found in Santos Espiritu which is one of Vanuatu’s most popular islands. The ship itself was a luxury liner that was taken over by the U.S military before sinking to a friendly mine. It is considered to be one of the most accessible shipwrecks to scuba dive.
4. Climb Mt Kilimanjaro
What better way to experience the vast African wilderness than from the peaks of Tanzania’s Mt Kilimanjaro. Fittest and altitude do come in to play here as the peak reaches over 19,000 feet.
5. Visit Yellowstone National Park
This National Park was the first in the world and is one of America’s most visited too. It is well known for its geyser field hosting up to 500 geysers within the park. Plus the wildlife spotting is yet another reason to visit including over 60 mammals.
6. Ice Caving
A famous cave found in Austria is the Eisriesenwelt Caves which are limestone caves that have formed icicles throughout the entrance of the cave within the Alps. It is the largest ice cave in the world and is open between April and October each year.
7. Visit the Sundarban Rainforest
Visit the swamp and mangrove forest which found on the border of Bangladesh and West Bengal, India and is home to the endangered Bengal tigers. It is also great for wildlife spotting for many other species as well which includes the abundant birdlife, jungle cats, mongoose and the unusual looking crocodile known as the Gharial.
