Every adventurer has their own bucket list destinations they want to experience throughout their journey of life. As novelist Anita Desai once wrote, “Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.” We truly learn through the places we see and the people we meet along the way.
During this time, travel is still limited, but we can all patiently anticipate the moment when we will pack up our suitcases and get out into the world again. As you plan your once-in-a-lifetime trip, keep this list of the top adventures to experience in your lifetime in mind.
See the Northern Lights: Arctic Excursion
Yes, the breathtaking Northern Lights are a remarkable scene to behold. The Aurora Borealis is a life-changing light show that draws visitors into a winter wonderland. A variety of factors are at work for viewing this phenomenon in its prime, such as time of year, weather conditions, and the particular location.
Zip-line: A Bird’s-Eye View
As humans, we lack the wings to fly gracefully through the sky. Nevertheless, we can experience locations from a bird’s-eye view via numerous means, such as airplanes, helicopters, and adventure activities. Out of these outdoor activities, zip-lining has to be one of the top adventures to experience in your lifetime. Some of the best places to zip-line across the globe are Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii.
Explore Europe By Train
Europe is diverse in culture, landscape, and language. As a close-knit conglomeration of beautiful countries and exciting cities to explore, there is no better way to travel through it all than by locomotive. Begin your journey by selecting your favorite region—perhaps Eastern, Northern, or Western.
Your trip routes can even be strewn across Scandinavia, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, or all the canals and chocolates to your pleasure. Some of the cosmopolitan capital cities to include on your itinerary are Paris, London, Madrid, Lisbon, Rome, Vienna, Budapest, Oslo, and Amsterdam.
Climb Up a Mountain: Mount Fiji
Hiking is one of the most popular outdoor activities these days. To mount it up to a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, travel to a notable mountain to experience views like no other. Mount Fiji is Japan’s iconic natural wonder that stands over 12,000 feet tall. In comparison to the notorious Mount Everest, this mountain is relatively climbable for visitors in good shape. Not to mention that Japan is the number one destination at the top of many travelers’ bucket lists.
Raft Down the Rapids of a Whitewater River
Whitewater rafting is a thrilling way to experience the most gorgeous of sceneries. Since river rapids are identified by a rapids class system, destinations differ in their degree of difficulty. A few of the best places to experience all this activity has to offer are the Chilko River in British Columbia, Canada, the Snake River along Hells Canyon in Idaho, USA, and the Zambia River in Zambia, Africa. Whatever you do, and wherever you chose to go, there is surely some adventure out there for everyone.
