People travel for many different reasons, but there are some who do it to seek out adventure. Adventurers are constantly living on the edge, and always ready to take risks and seek out thrills and excitement. If you are this type of traveler and you’ve been thinking about where to go on your next adventure, here are some of the best travel destinations for you:
Before Your Trip
Being an adventurer doesn’t mean taking uncalculated risks or making reckless decisions. You should still plan your trip in advance and carefully prepare for it to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Book your flight and accommodations well in advance in order to get the best deals, and don’t forget to reserve a parking space near the airport using a service like ParkON.
Finding a parking space at the airport at the last minute can be a nightmare, and you could end up wasting precious time looking for a place to park your car. ParkON makes finding airport parking a cinch, with it’s easy to navigate website. You can search, select and reserve a parking space in less than five minutes, and rest assured that your car will be safe and secure at one of their many parking lots until you return from your adventure.
Grand Canyon, Arizona
Every adventurer has to experience rafting through the Grand Canyon at least once in their lifetime. The best time to visit is between May and October, and there are rapids for every level from beginner to intermediate, so you will definitely enjoy yourself no matter what your skill level. There are even a few rapids that are safe enough for young children, so you can bring the whole family on a wet and wild adventure.
Machu Picchu, Peru
Located in the Eastern Cordillera of southern Peru, this 15th-century Inca citadel is one of the most breathtaking sites in the world. Perched high in the mountains and surrounded by a mist of mystery, it’s definitely worth the trek on foot. Hikes up to Machu Picchu vary in length, altitude and difficulty, so make sure to choose a trail that matches your level of skill. Plan to visit during the dry season (between April and October,) otherwise the wet and soggy terrain can make the hike much more challenging. Then again, that might be exactly the adventure you’re after
Iceland may be famous for its blue lagoon and unparalleled views of the Aurora Borealis, but it’s also a prime destination for thrill seekers who want to experience descending into a fascinating volcano. Thrihnukagigur is a dormant volcano, last erupting more than 4,000 years ago. Today, it is a popular tourist destination where you can experience a unique descent into the earth, exploring colorful caverns and echoing chambers.
Its total depth is 700 feet, meaning the Statue of Liberty could easily fit inside, but it only takes about six minutes to lower all the way to the bottom of the crater. The magma chamber is the heart of a volcano, and Thrihnukagigur’s magma chamber is rare and unique because all the magma has been drained out.
Hopefully this short list gives you a good idea about where to go on your next adventure. Consider exploring these destinations for a fun and unique experience that you won’t soon forget.
