Adventure Travel Destinations to Add to Your Bucket List

There are vacations, and then there are adventures. I like to consider myself more of an adventurer than a leisure traveler. Today I am sharing some of my favorite adventure travel destinations in hopes of inspiring your next trip.

There are vacations and then there are adventures. This list of travel destination for the adventurous might just inspire your next trip.

I like to be pushed out of my comfort zone, and I love being surrounded by nature. Sure relaxing on the beach can be fun, but I would rather be biking through a vineyard, hiking up a mountain, or trying to navigate a dog sled through a forest.

This list has a little bit of everything – off the grid adventures, destinations where you can balance relaxation and activity, and a wide variety of landscapes from deserts to jungles. Some of these destinations can easily be combined with a beach vacation or cultural exploration. It’s easy to combine a trip to the Amazon with a visit to Machu Picchu. When I have traveled to Costa Rica I have split my time between the beach and the rainforest.

First things first, you will need to check the CDC website to see if you need to get any shots or malaria pills before jetting off to these locations. I also recommend checking the CDC website to see if Zika is a concern. If you are going to a high altitude area, usually mosquitos are not a concern since they live in lower elevations.

One last thing to remember is that any vacation can be turned into an adventure. Maybe you aren’t ready to canoe across a piranha filled lake to get to a jungle lodge in a remote part of the Amazon. That’s ok. Try a day trip instead! Do a bike tour, a guided hike, or a kayaking experience. These are fun and easy ways to enjoy time outside, and they also ensure that you will be back to your hotel room in time for dinner.
