How to Have an Active Vacation Adventure

By Joseph J Colella

Are you having a hard time deciding where to go on your next vacation? Have you lost interested in your usual vacation spot? At some point you get tired of the same thing - shopping, gambling and lying on the beach, right? Has the thought occurred to partake on an adventure travels vacation?

These trips were created to get you out into the woods, to test your limits and get you active. A lot of people save their money for years to be able to afford to go on all-encompassing adventure vacations. Fortunately, there are some that don't need a lifetime of savings. Here are some great ideas for your next trip.

A noteworthy example of extreme adventure travels is mountain climbing. The West Coast Mountain Guides regular take thrill-seeking travelers out on climbing excursions. You can choose from spots located all over the western Canadian provinces. Climbers can select from rock climbing, ice climbing or even snow mountaineering. If you're really looking for a thrill, they will take you on a journey that will include all three.

When you are participating on a walkabout, you completely live off the land. You hunt for and gather your own food, make your own shelter from any materials you can find and experience the "elements" that could come your way (weather, animals, etc). It would be like extreme camping and can bring great satisfaction.

You can sleep in the ranch's guest cabins. During the day you become a real working ranch hand. Guests ride horses and help round up and drive the ranch's cattle from one pasture to another. In the evening time there are campfire stories.

Nearly every continent has a specific type of tour and companies that will teach you how to hunt the game available on their local terrain. Do you have a desire to go hunting in Africa for the larger-than-life (non-endangered) wild animals? You can accomplish it. Are you into hunting out in the wild west of America? You can do that, as well. The most important thing to decide for a hunting adventure is selecting what type of game you want to hunt. Afterward, it is all a matter of logistics like: "how do I get my hunting gear there or will they outfit me?

Have you ever thought about taking a deep sea fishing trip? Most people don't think about fishing, when they think about adventure travels. However, when you are out in the middle of the big blue sea, fishing is totally new. Not only are you usually wrestling a bigger fish, you're also dealing with the elements of the ocean.

Choose from one of the many trusted companies and let them show you where to find hippos, elephants and giraffes in their natural environments. Look at prides of lions and packs of hyenas. You can see birds you have only watched in a zoo. If you enjoy animals, a Safari should be your top choice for an adventure travel.

The purpose of adventure travels is to get individuals to step outside their comfort zone. They help you to explore different sides of your personality that are usually hidden. Are you tired of sitting on your couch and daydreaming about what life is like in other parts of the world? Have you always yearned to scale a mountain, swim with dolphins for camp out in the great outdoors of Australia or New Zealand? These are all available to you. Simply select what type of adventure you desire to take and go out and do it. It's easier than you may realize.
