Mountain Biking in New Zealand

If you enjoy biking, you simply can’t miss New Zealand. The breath-taking landscapes in this place will stick to your mind for sure, and the biking trails are challenging enough to keep your adrenaline levels up. The scenery combined with the experience of riding a mountain bike on the various trails add up to the best holiday for adventurous people. The regions that you want to keep in mind for mountain biking are Rotorua, Lake Taupo, Ruapehu, and Wanaka. The trails differ in difficulty, so you can choose one that’s suitable for your current skills. You don’t need to be a professional bike rider to enjoy this experience at its fullest. Keep in mind that there are guided tours that you can opt for as well. Look for operators in the region you visit and get more details.

Paddleboarding in Yosemite National Park

Paddleboarding is a relaxed activity that still connects you to nature to a different level. This is why you want to find places that give you epic sights – you will have the chance to slow down and focus on the dreamy surroundings. Yosemite is one of the most sought-after parks in the United States. In 2014, the dream of adventurers came true and the rivers in the Yosemite National Park became available for paddle boarding. The Merced River and Tenaya Lake are waiting for you in the Spring, when waterfalls reach their peak and flowers bloom all around. Plus, it’s not that crowded.

Hiking in Indonesia

The hiking trails in Indonesia are out of this world. There are several regions you can opt for in Indonesia, depending on what you wish from your holiday. You can choose wild islands such as Padar in the Komodo National Park or a relaxed location like North Sumatra, that hosts one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world – Sipiso-Piso. In case you are more experienced with hiking and you’d like a challenging difficulty level, choose Mount Rinjani, where you can enjoy a hiking route to the crater lake.

Cruising in Norway

Have you ever heard about how beautiful coastal Norway is? If you visited Norway and never got the chance to see the northern lights at their best, you can go cruising in Norway, the country of fjords. The natural splendors of this country should be experienced from a cruise ship. The excursions can last from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the type of experience and ship that you choose. The coastal steamer which coasts from Bergen towards the north is named Hurtigruten and is the most popular choice among people. The cruise ships depart from multiple locations, so you can start your cruise outside Norway too.

Canyoning in Vietnam

Da Lat in Vietnam is a great location for canyoning. Keep in mind that you need to have some experience to go canyoning, as it requires a good physical condition and basic knowledge in this field. You will have to invest in proper equipment as well. Buy aqua shoes or sports trainers, sunblock and swim clothes. Rock climbing is going to be part of the canyoning experience, so hire a guide if it’s your first time doing it. The guide will choose the easiest paths. Choose canyoning only if you are part of a smaller group, as it is much easier to remain safe during the trip.

Karting in Algarve

Karting is a travel activity that you can’t miss during your holiday. You can participate in karting activities with your friends and family as well. There are plenty of locations where karting is popular, but some of them stand out from the rest. In Albufeira go karting without second thoughts. Algarve gives you plenty of opportunities, from scuba diving to karting and whale watching. You have all the reasons to put Algarve on your travel checklist.

Trek in India

India is perfect for trekking because of the wide range of landscapes and high-altitude peaks that await. The plethora of mysteries that India hides makes it a priority for any travel lover. For an enticing trekking experience, choose locations such as Ladakh (where you can find the most popular valleys in India – Zanskar, and Markha) or Sikkim (an enchanting land for trekking, with numerous waterfalls, mountain peaks, rivers and streams). Trekking in India can also be a spiritual experience besides an adventuresome one, considering the many Buddhist temples and pristine nature.

Raft in Bosnia

If Almancil go karting is not enough to feed your adrenaline addiction, you can try something rougher. Bosnia and Herzegovina is the perfect place for rafting lovers. This sport is quite extreme. River rafting is the number one activity in this country, followed by tubing, so you can find numerous centres for rafting around the area. Don’t forget to train beforehand if this is your first time experiencing rafting. Konjic, Foca, Drina-Tara, and Bihac are the names you need to keep in mind when thinking about rafting in Bosnia. The most attractive times of the year to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina are during April, May, and June. September is too late because the water level decreases and the rafting experience is no longer the same.
