The world is full of so many different adventures to enjoy, it can be hard to know where to start. Some people never try and live outside of their own comfort zone, but they’re missing out! A good adventure will have your heart pounding, adrenaline pumping, and will leave you with so many stories to tell and memories to keep.
Wondering where to start? Here are four must-do travel adventures you can enjoy.
Hike somewhere epic
Hiking is a fantastic way to see the sights of a country from a different perspective. There are so many amazing places to hike, from Galicia’s Costa da Morte, (the “Coast of Death”) where you end at Cape Finisterre, thought to be the end of the world, to Snow Hill Island in the Antarctic, which is home to thousands of the world’s largest penguins and their tiny little chicks!
Don’t worry if you’re not a seasoned hiker. Everyone has to start somewhere, so even a small walk can be a great adventure if you do it right.
Go on a safari
Few things will get your adrenaline pumping quite as much as seeing a lion chase down his prey right in front of you. A safari is a once in a lifetime experience to see wild animals up close.
Whether you go looking for the Big Five (African elephant, rhinoceros, lion, leopard and the Cape buffalo) on the back of a jeep, or track the Great Migration (featuring over a million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle migrating) in a hot air balloon, it’s something you will always remember.
Keep your camera charged and ready as you might be lucky enough to get some pictures of a lifetime!
Explore the sky
Perhaps someday we’ll be able to explore space on our holidays, but for now, there are ways to appreciate it as it is. For example, sleep beneath the stars in NamibRand, Namibia – a gold-certified Dark Sky Reserve, where you’ll have one of the best views of the night sky in the entire world. For something a little more colorful, head to see the Northern Lights, (or Aurora Borealis) in Norway, Finland, Sweden, Iceland, Canada or Scotland, depending on the time of year.
Go beneath the surface
Under the sea feels like a whole other world, so grab your oxygen tank and waterproof camera, and take a dive beneath the water. The world’s largest coral reef system can be found in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, which is literally swimming with colorful plants, amazing predators and playful fish. Keep your eyes peeled for sharks too!
What are you waiting for? Book your travel adventure now and don’t be surprised if you get a little addicted to it – the buzz is incredible! You don’t have to be an adrenaline-junkie to go on an adventure, anything that’s out of your comfort zone still counts.
