If you love the great wide outdoors have you ever considered going on an Adventure travel tour? It could be just the thing you are looking for or the break that you need after a particularly busy spell at work. You could take your loved ones along or even go solo because nothing else will let you unwind and discover yourself like adventure travel does.
The reasons why adventure travel is almost therapeutic is because when you are out on the road – say camping or hiking or rock climbing, you’re closest to nature. And we all know that man is at his best when he is close to nature. We can’t help it! It is sort of programmed into our genes. Adventure travel brings you one step closer to nature and you, as a result find an inner peace. This will help you return to work rejuvenated and ready to perform even better than before!
So what are some of the more popular activities you can take up while on an adventure travel trip?
Those of you who are a bit green around the gills, this is not for you. If you haven’t experienced an adrenalin rush, then by all means skip to this section, but for those of you who have and want more, then you can go white water rafting down fast flowing rivers- like the Zambezi. Or if you have the funds for it, why not try Skydiving? Just remember to pull the parachute on time! Or if that’s a bit too much, you could stick to the more conventional Bungee jumping.
What’s an adventure travel activity that doesn’t teach you a new skill or two? You should always try to sharpen your skills and you’ll be surprised by just how much this will help you in your professional life! Try Archery, it’s a great activity and there’s not too much of a risk involved. You can also try rock climbing. This is a great exercise which helps to build up stamina and strength, just do it with supervision. We don’t want another case of “127 Hours”! You could also try your hand at canyoning, its great fun.
You can mix a trip to the beach with adventure travel activities! Water sports are the most popular form of adventure activity known, probably because the risk factor involved with them is relatively less. You can try water skiing, kayaking, snorkeling, canoeing, surfing or even windsurfing! It can make any trip to the beach a memorable one.
If you have a lot of time on your hands, then you can choose to go for an extended adventure travel holiday. Try a hiking trip with buddies, the memories will last you a lifetime. You can also choose to go horseback riding or if you have the funds for it, you can go Dog sledding in the Nordic region – few things are as much fun!
Hope you’re planning your adventure travel trip already!
