Any travel is fun, but for experiences, it’s hard to beat the thrill-a-minute rollercoaster that is adventure travel. This pushes people out of their comfort zone, helps them grow as individuals, and opens up the beauty of the world – and the people who live on it – in ways that conventional travel just can’t replicate. Of course, all these benefits to come with a drawback: it’s challenging and really hard work at times. Below, we’ve put together five tips to help you get the most our of your adventure travel trip.
If you want to experience the true beauty of the English countryside then there is no place more stunning than the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, north-west England. The National Park is pure natural splendour and contains Englands highest mountain, Scafell Pike, as well as Englands biggest natural lake, Lake Windermere. The park is continuous mountains and lakes, occasionally dotted with cute little English towns and villages. The land is used a lot or farming so you will see your fair share of fields full of sheep, horses, and cows. Postcard material everywhere you look!
There’s always something special about exploring what mother nature has created in this world. What’s even better is knowing that what you’re exploring is so unique and rare that you’re one of only a handful of people to have ever seen it in person. There’s a feeling that comes with that; exploring the untouched and dangerous territory, the satisfaction of knowing that you haven’t followed the beaten path, and telling a story when you get home that only a few can tell.
I feel like these things always happen to me.
You’ll hear about how the jeep broke down further on in this post, but it was actually a blessing in disguise!
Want a short and relatively easy hike with epic scenic rewards that are rare to find anywhere else?
Of course you do, and Devils Bridge in Sedona is just the trick!
As one of the main attractions in the area, Devils Bridge has built a reputation as one of the best scenic spots that come with some great photo opportunities. The Bridge is a red rock arch that has been eroded over millions of years by wind and weather.
The bridge looks like its going to collapse at any second due to all the cracks. However, I’ve been told it’ll be there for a few thousand years to come. Lets hope they’re right!
I’ve really fallen in love with the USA over the last couple of years.
Spending two summers working at a summer camp in Maine and subsequently meeting my girlfriend there have made it a home from home and given the country a special place in my heart.
I now hop across the pond whenever I can to see Annie, and today I am lucky enough to be doing just that!
Pima Canyon is situated in the Santa Catalina mountains in Tucson, Arizona.
The hike is 3.9 miles and rated as moderate difficulty. The hike offers great views over Tuscon, a somewhat forested section that you wouldn’t expect to find in Arizona and some great wildlife including; Javelina, birds and mountain goats.
