8 Adventurous Spots From Around The World

Adventure travel website Wild Junket has a great story up today listing eight adventurous spots from around the world. The article actually links each of the locations with an adventurous activity that will give travelers a challenge, while fueling their desire for adrenaline fueled fun in unique places around the world.

The eight spots listed are, as you can imagine, all quite unique and interesting. Starting with rock climbing in Jordan, their number eight selection, gets things rolling with a great suggestion that isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you consider a destination for climbing. Likewise, number seven on the list is Thailand, where they suggest you go sea kayaking. There are a lot of things that you can do in Thailand, but generally sea kayaking isn’t the first that comes to mind. Other locations that make the list include Borneo (caves and jungles!), South Africa (sand boarding), and Australia, which is lauded for its great scuba diving.

We’re now a month into the new year (Where did January go by the way?), and it’s time to start putting together our own travel adventures for the year ahead. Over the weekend, I began to do just that, and my destination corresponds with their number one choice as well, which is Nepal, where they recommend mountain trekking. As it just so happens, that’s what I’ll be doing. The plan is to head up to Everest Base Camp in April. Hopefully it’ll all come together, and I’m sure I’ll be sharing more on that as we get closer to the spring.

So? What’s on your agenda for 2010? What adventures are you planning and what remote place is calling to you?

Thanks to the Wend Blog for the heads up on this cool story.

  1. Nepal is the most amazing place ever…. you'll love it!

    I went in '08 for 3 months and have been DYING to go back ever since. I don't know if I will this year, but hopefully next year if I'm lucky.

    My only regret from the time I went was that I didn't stay longer. So if it's possible, stay for as long as you can to get the most out of your experience and truly get a grasp of the culture. (Yes, even 3 months was not enough for me!)

    Best of luck on making it to Base Camp!

  2. Thanks! I'm looking forward to it. Should be an amazing trip, and I'm looking forward to the experience. Wish I could go for a longer period as well.

  3. I'm going to Nepal this June to trek to Everest base camp! Can't wait! Having climbed Kili last May i can't stop wanting adventure! Love your blog!

  4. Thank Tom. Glad you enjoy the the blog. 🙂

    I went to Kili a few years back too, and had a great time. Looking forward to the Everest Trek as well. Hope you have a blast in June. 🙂

  5. Very mediocre and obvious choices for most places ( rafting in New Zealand, trekking in Nepal, scuba diving in Australia ? ) Not very original ( not at all).

  6. hey Adventure Junkie thanks for the mention, glad you liked my piece. I'm sure you'll enjoy trekking in Nepal. I'm planning to catch the trans-Siberian rail this summer, crossing from Europe to Asia by land, let's hope that comes true too.

    Paul, I was actually rounding up a list of classic adventurous spots, so yes, they're not exactly original, but thanks for the feedback anyhow.

  7. Nepal tops my list as well (been there in October 2005 and July 2006, doing Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna Basecamp, Everest Basecamp and Island Peak), but this year the road leads me to Tanzania. No climbing, only exploring!

  8. Nellie: Nothing wrong with reminding us of the obvious places from time to time. I've been to a number of places on your list, and would go back anytime. 🙂

    Matthias: Tanzania is amazing. You'll love it there. The people are so friendly and the wildlife is spectacular. I loved my time in Tanzania.
