10 Adrenaline-Charged Adventure Travel Destinations

How long did it take for you to go stir crazy on that last all-inclusive trip you took to the Caribbean?

No one says your next vacation needs to be devoted to lying in the sun and umbrella drinks. In fact, let mountain trekking, heart-stopping water sports, nature safaris, thundering waterfalls, and dense forests be your guide.

We’ve got ten adrenaline-charged travel destinations around the world in mind for your inner most thrill seeker…

1. Chile

Did you know that this little-visited, South America country offers almost 3000-miles of vast, natural, outdoor adventure? That’s right, adventures in Chile are all about getting lost in the landscape of gems—such as trudging, starry-eyed through the High Atacama Desert to wandering the mountains and lakes of Patagonia. Chile is also prime for eco-minded travelers, and if you want to find yourself off the grid, there’s no place like the far-flung Easter Island (the most uninhabited place on earth) and its massive stone head statues. Adventure packages on GoChile.cl range from $500 to $1,500.

2. Canada

As far as wanderlust goes, Canada’s “home and native land” offers up a bounty of sweat-inducing adventures. Whether your pulse quickens at the thought of North America’s top-rated ski resort, Whistler-Blackcomb, and it’s vertical drop of 1609 meters—or perhaps your eyes bulge at the thought of rafting the Shubenacadie tidal bore on the Bay of Fundy, where the world’s highest tides rise up to 15 meters daily (a full day of rafting, plus a BBQ meal is about $90 per person). Either way, you won’t be disappointed with the bounty of customizable travel options available at Canadian Tourism Commission.
