Soft Adventure, Hard Adventure or Just Adventure?

What counts as an adventure is as individual as you. For some seeing your first giraffe as you drive out of Nairobi Airport on the start of your safari holiday is an adventure; snorkelling over a reef in the Maldives and being dazzled by the colours of the fish and corals is an adventure; trekking in the Hindu Kush or the High Caucasus may excite you or an expedition to Antarctica could be your idea of a true adventure. It comes down to what excites you, challenges you or ticks one of those boxes that you have always promised yourself you would do.

There is no doubt in our mind that travellers now days are keen to experience their destination rather than just look at it. Very often they are looking to include another of their interests, such as horse riding. Combining a two or three day riding safari as part of your trip to South Africa, East Africa, South America, New Zealand and Australia just makes the whole adventure more intense. If walking is an interest that you have, then trekking in many different parts of the world could well be on your agenda. Being part of a small group allows you to relax about the planning; alternatively being independent frees you to go when and where you want. It is all possible – all you need to do is start the planning and to talk to someone who can make it happen for you.

Nor does being adventurous mean that you have to give up on travelling comfortably (unless that is what you want!). Many lodges and campsites located well off the beaten track have day excursions in to the wild with a local guide. Such trips give you an opportunity to learn about the environment in a very hands on way. Perhaps a more adventurous trip would be to be based on a deluxe sailing catamaran and then daily kayaking and exploring the Croatian Coast. Or for the serious kayaking fraternity, there is a 16 day trip that takes in Greenland’s Arctic Riviera.

Families are catered for as well, with adventures such as safaris through Yellowstone, Tanzania or Costa Rica as some of the option destinations. A wonderful time to be together while all enjoying and learning about the place you have chosen. The guides on these trips really enjoy passing on their knowledge to the next generation and entertaining the whole family.

The list is endless as to where, what and when you start your adventure; whether it is polar bear tracking, mixing culture and wildlife in Sri Lanka or driving the Outback in Australia. It all starts with the planning and ends with your adventure becoming a reality.
