What Kind of Adventure Travels Do You Fancy?

How would you describe your last vacation? Were you amused? Were you entertained? Was there some time to kick back and relax or did your last vacation consist of getting your family to and fro, with a little yard work and household chores thrown in? Was your last "vacation" essentially a "staycation"? Why not do something different this year? When you have a short time off, why not look into some of the various adventure travels that may be available in your backyard. Most likely, there are many adventures to be had in your home state. If you have the money, why not get out on a true adventure? Here are some crowd-pleasing adventure travels.

Dog sledding can be a wonderful adventure! You probably think that going dog sledding can only be done by trained professionals. If you're thinking about the Iditarod, you're right. If, on the other hand, you just want to find out what it's like to go dog sledding and have an adventure, the Alaskan Husky Adventures is what you need! There are three and two day package deals available through this group. You buy your own groceries, stay in their cabins and then during the day you get taught the basics of dog sledding by professionals and sometimes you are given guided tours. Palawan is a must if you want to enjoy a vacation.

If you like extreme adventure travels, why not think about climbing into a hot air balloon and going somewhere? Why not try out white water rafting? Have you kicked the idea around of Bungee jumping? Some people are stimulated with a rush of excitement from skydiving. Definitely there are places to do this in many towns. One option for an extreme adventure vacation is skydiving over the Grand Canyon. Take a ride in a hot air balloon across the Australian outback. When you make the choice to go to the extremes, the entire world is your playing field. One very popular extreme vacation is paragliding in India. Why not explore the skies?

The cuisine in your visits to El Nido are must tries. You should not miss the opportunity. You Should Go on a Llama Trek! Anybody can do some horseback riding. If you want some fun adventure travels without having to leave the country, check out the Hurricane Creek Llama Treks in Oregon. On these treks you bring your own camping equipment and are solely responsible for all setting up, taking down, packing and unpacking. These types of adventure travels are great because they let you choose--you can either ride your llama or walk the trails yourself and lead the llama with you. When else in your life will you have the chance to go llama riding?

Adventure travels don't necessarily have to be lavish, extravagant and flagrant. Some of them involve daytime trips, while returning to a peaceful setting for the evening. The main purpose of an adventure vacation is to have an exciting time and get your adrenaline going. Luckily, there is something for almost every adventurer to do - even if they one have a short vacation time in which to do it. Next time you start to make vacation arrangements, why not take the path of an adventurer? You can choose to relax at the spa next time.
