Are you sick of having to use all of your vacation time for visiting your family? Are you sick of hanging out on the couch and staring at a television set with your parents because choosing something else would have made you feel bad? It's hard to shake off those feelings of guilt. At the same time, every once in a while you need to take a vacation that you can enjoy. Why not go off on a grand adventure the next time you get some vacation days? Heck you could probably fit in a weekend adventure trek and still have time to sit on your parents' couch and look through old photo albums. The following are great adventure travels to try out.
Mountain climbing is a great example of extreme adventure travels. The West Coast Mountain Guides take globetrotting adventurers out on climbing excursions on a fairly regular basis. You can choose from spots located all over the western Canadian provinces. Excursionists have a choice of rock climbing, ice climbing or even snow mountaineering. If you're really looking for a thrill, they will take you on a journey that will include all three.
Before you even think of going on one of these trips, you need to consider getting in the best physical shape you can. Mountain climbing feats are not for the lethargic and physically unfit population!
Do you get a thrill from sightseeing? Do you love the thought of being able to explore the places you've only read about in books? Why not go on a sightseeing adventure travel to a destination you have always dreamed of going to? Trendy tourist destinations include Greece, Rome, Ireland and Scotland, Africa, China and Tibet. Seemingly there is a sightseeing tour to be had in just about every country in the world, so just pick a location and sign up for a touring trip! Let someone guide you through your chosen country's culture and history.
Have you ever considered going out on a deep-see fishing trip? For a majority of people, fishing doesn't enter their minds when they dream about adventure travels. At any rate, fishing becomes a completely new adventure when you are out in the middle of a giant blue ocean. Not only are you usually fighting with larger fish, but you are also fighting the elements. Possibilities are endless when you're out at sea. Before you make a decision on your landing spot, you need to figure out what kind of fish you want to catch from the deep sea. On the other hand, if you desire, you can also determine the area according to the climate and "home base" scenery. A very trendy deep sea fishing spot is Hawaii. How about a beach? Maybe the tropical weather will do you great! Boracay is a must if you want to have a great time and stay.
Adventure travels don't necessarily have to be lavish, extravagant and flagrant. Sometimes they involve taking daytime adventures while returning to a relaxing setting at night. The main goal of an adventure vacation is to have a blast and be active. Luckily, there is something for almost every adventurer to do - even if they one have a short vacation time in which to do it. When the time comes to layout your next vacation plans why not think about taking a walk on the adventurer's side? You can choose to relax at the spa next time.
