Do you think of yourself as an adventurer? Have you dreamed of going to far-off locations and ascending a stiff mountain or doing something new? Are you also thrilled with something that pushes you to your limits?

If your answer is “yes” to all of these questions, then why are you not being active and just sitting there instead of planning something that will really give you that adrenaline rush?

Regardless of the kind activity that you enjoy the most, there are numerous adventure tours, which you can book anytime. If you find yourself suddenly out of ideas for activities to do while on adventure trips, read on and discover what else you can try.

Adventure holidays are one type of expedition or travel that involves going to tortuous places and traveler attempts to do different sports or activities that are really extreme or giving a sense of thrill.  Adventure travels are getting more popular nowadays as they allow backpackers to visit exotic destinations or experience unusual escapes. This vacation is very different from the common beach trips or visiting famous tourist spots and attractions.

Classifying adventure travels is a bit tricky as there is no exact definition of what it means. But one thing is sure, the activities involved in adventure tours have varying degree of difficulty. Such tours can be a leisurely ride on bikes and mild hiking or they may be comprised of skiing through grueling slopes.

Also, adventure tours often involve going to remote places, getting exposed to different cultures, and of course, engaging in physical activities.

The two categories that adventure travel are classified as are:

1.     Hard adventure travel- all the extreme and generally risky sporting activities fall under this category. Popular examples are surfing, mountain climbing, paragliding, rock climbing, and scuba diving.

2.     Soft adventure travel – these are leisure activities and usually educational. The activities are non-strenuous such as bird watching and pilgrimage tours.

If you would like to go for extreme adventure tours, taking a hot air balloon trip is an option. Joining a group in the white water rafting quest is another exciting experience. For something really extreme, skydiving and bungee jumping are two activities that you can consider for your trip. These will surely push you to your limits!

As for the places to do such sports, there a lot of good destinations where these activities could be done. Once you have become an adventure traveler, the world eventually turns into your big playground. This means to say that you can explore the whole world and visit different countries just to try or do certain activities that you can never experience anywhere else.

India is one of the best destinations when it comes to extreme travel adventures. Specifically, this country is known for paragliding, and Himachal is an ideal location for this activity. Do you want to give it a try?

Other outdoor adventure activities that you can do in India are hiking, skiing, and rock climbing around the Himalayan ranges. Tourists can also opt for an exploration of Rajasthan escapade while riding a jeep.  An expedition to the deserts on a camel is also an exhilarating treat in Rajasthan. Apparently, there are a lot of activities that can be enjoyed on adventure trips in India.

On the other hand, a good number of people think that fishing is not an adventurous activity but as mentioned earlier, this activity could be listed under the soft adventure category.  With this said, then have you ever considered taking a fishing trip in the sea?

Fishing in the middle of the ocean makes this activity a different sport because the possibilities for something intense to happen are never-ending when you’re out in the middle of the ocean. Many travelers say that the best destination for deep-sea fishing is Hawaii.

Over all, adventure vacations do not have to be excessive and utterly extreme. They can be simply a daytime outing too. Truthfully, the main purpose of adventure vacations is just to be active and get some thrill. In short, it is meant to give travelers a spine-tingling experience for life.

The options for adventure getaways are plenty and everyone can find one that suits them the best. Your choice will depend on how adventurous you would like to be. If you are going for these types of trips, you have to make sure that you will be safe. Keep in mind that risk always go hand in hand with adventure vacation trips.

This post reminded me of a what mountaineer Tim Macartney-Snape once said "There are many reasons why I love climbing-there's the physical pleasure, the mental challenge, the beauty. But underlying all is the compulsion to explore, to wonder what is possible, where we have come from and where we are going."
