Overview

Adventure can mean so many things. For some, it means climbing the peaks of Tibet, sailing the open seas or cycling through Europe. For others, adventure is conquering a fear or pushing yourself to a whole new level. And for many, adventure means bravely stepping into the unknown of a new culture, language or setting. Adventure travel, in its essence, means pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone to experience something novel and worthwhile. Join the wild, bumpy ride during these 24 adventures of a lifetime. • Get chased by monkeys in Indonesia • See what happens when you're stranded in the Gobi Desert • Play a game of naked Frisbee with a tribe in New Guinea • Hang out with polar bears in the frozen lands of Manitoba • Say goodbye to your love on a final trip to Venice • Get hopelessly lost during a scary jungle hike in Hawaii • Stare history in the face uncovering your roots in Latvia • Watch over your back for hippos on a Ugandan safari • Attempt to sail across Australia's wild Bass Strait • Travel by camel with the "Blue Men" of Mali • Step foot in Antarctica among icebergs and penguins And many more...
