Have you been pining for a vacation? If you have the leaves stocking up in your leave balance, then it is time to put them to good use! Leave all your life’s mundane routines behind and set sail on an adventure of a lifetime.
Many people travel in search of experiences that will last them a lifetime. But considering you only have a few days on hand, how can you find such experiences in a limited time?
The only way to get the best of both worlds – unforgettable adventures that don’t require you to leave your job – is to take an adventure tour. These types of tours are tailored to take you off-the-beaten-track and help you explore new places. They also take you to the middle of the action and help you gain the rawest experience. Experienced companies like Furthest Frontiers can match different types of travelers to the kind of things they would like to.
But before you reach out to the experts, help them build you a dream itinerary by answering these simple questions.
What adventure do you want?
First things first, you need to ask yourself what kind of adventure you are looking for. Are you planning to explore the world’s remotest corner or climb the highest mountain?
Regardless of which type of travel you choose, make sure that it takes you outside your comfort zone. You can choose to spend your time in the open wilderness or go rafting in the gushing waters of Grand Canyon. But before you talk to a professional, have your interests figured out.
What adrenaline pumping activity do you seek?
There are many activities out there that will make your heart leap. Amongst those activities, which ones stimulate you the most? Maybe you like the idea of hiking in the dead of night to reach the summit at the first ray of dawn or you want to go rock climbing to watch the sunset. You can also explore the lesser known corners of a popular city and get intimate with the local culture. Sit and think hard about the kinds of adventures that set your heart racing. Once you have that figured out, planning an intrepid trip will become a breeze.
How full do you want your days to be?
Do you want to quickly finish your itinerary or do want to take it nice and slow, catching a break in between activities to do your thing? You can either choose from a full package that offers multiple activities or an “a-la-carte” package that allows you to experience things outside of your itinerary.
Maybe you don’t want hiking and rock climbing in the same itinerary. In that case, you can choose a custom itinerary where you can hike with the tour operator and then have a day or two to explore the region on your own.
Planning a trip does not have to be so complicated. All you need is clarity on what you want to do and how much you are willing to spend, everything else will be sorted by your tour operator.
