Eco-Friendly vacations for the adventure seeker

Share this:

If you’re an active, thrill seeker, you will probably get restless looking at the world through a window of a fast moving vehicle or high flying airplane. You want to get out there and climb a mountain, ski a mountain, hike a mountain or dive in the ocean.

Or maybe, you want to escape the efficiency of technology and progress to stop and enjoy the quiet beauty of a mountain sunset or the excitement of seeing majestic wild animals. You are people who want to experience and live the excitement of your vacation by living it and breathing it.

We’re also a nation of thrill seekers. With amusement park roller coasters and skydivers on weekends. Catching large breakers on surfboards and skiing down a steep slope, playing rough contact sports and even bungee jumping off tall bridges.

For many of you, if we could, you’d love to raft down a raging river, trek up a rugged mountain path or gallop a horse across wild open plain. You love the buzz and surge of adrenaline. People may call you a daredevil and foolhardy for stretching your limits. What’s important to you is the excitement and adventure of a good Eco-Friendly vacation.

Many of you are more concerned, even obsessed with keeping your bodies healthy. That’s why you walk, run, hike, and bike to get our pulse rate up to aerobic levels. That’s why the last thing you want to do on our vacation is slack off, sit back, and do nothing.

Types of tours:

The types and skill levels for adventure tours are as varied as the people who want to embark on an adventure trip. There are opportunities to experience remote and exotic parts of the world, reached or traversed at a slower pace by foot, animal or river power, combined with the thrill and excitement thar comes from testing ourselves physically.

What do they Cost?

Prices range from relatively inexpensive weekenders in national parks to pricey but unforgettable month long treks through some of the most remote mountains and forest in the world.

What do they share?

What they have in common is the fact that they involve active, physical participation on your part. Instead of sitting on a bus, you’ll be walking, trekking, backpacking, bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, skiing, horseback riding, or whitewater rafting.

Points to consider:

How physically fit are you? Most adventure travels involves modest to extreme degrees of physical exercise.

Adventure travels may take you many miles or days away from the nearest doctor or hospital.

It carries a higher degree of risk than almost any other vacation experience. It is suggested to obtain emergency medical insurance before your go.
