When you think about a vacation, what is it that you dream of?
Some people are content to lie on a beach for a week, others like to sightsee around cities… but some of us are more adventurous and we want to get out there and see the world.
If that sounds like you, here are some vacation ideas that might inspire your next trip.
A Mountaineering Trip
If you’re an active person and you like to push your body to its extremes, have you ever tried mountaineering?
There are plenty of places across the world where you can go trekking over some of the world’s most beautiful mountains and peaks, but a lot of people just don’t know where to get started. Look online for travel companies that will provide you with some of the basics so that you know exactly what you’re doing, and then figure out where exactly you want to go.
If you love skiing, you could check out the snow-covered Norwegian mountains. If that doesn’t sound like you, why not try climbing Kilimanjaro? There are a number of different routes you can take, along with nearby safaris where you can take in some nature too.
Finally, if you’re an experienced trekker and climber, then you should check out a Everest base camp trek UK company. It’s the ultimate challenge, and one on many people’s bucket lists.
Backpacking Through Europe
A trip through Europe via Interrail means that you can see up to thirty-one different countries via train, exploring all the most beautiful European sights and sounds and some of the best architecture in the world.
From Rome to Venice to Paris, interrailing has it all if you plan out your trip carefully. It’s also an extremely cheap way to see Europe – many interrailers stay in shared rooms in youth hostels, which is inexpensive and also means that you can make like-minded friends who you can explore different cities with.
It’s important to make a loose plan of the places that you really want to see, but it’s also crucial that you’re open-minded and that you sometimes play it by ear so that you don’t miss out on any incredible spur of the moment opportunities.
The Inca Trail
If you love walking but you don’t know whether you want to go on a full-scale mountain climbing trek, the Inca Trail may just be for you.
It is perhaps the most famous trail in the world, and the trip that many people take is with companies that will pitch your tent, cook your food, and carry your bags for you, so that you can take in the scenery and fully focus on your walk.
The Peruvian countryside is glorious as it takes you up through the Andean mountains and finally to Machu Picchu itself, where you’ll find Incan ruins and a sense of accomplishment and euphoria. The town at its base, Aguas Calientes, is also beautiful, boasting natural hot springs and sulfurous pools where you can soak your aching bones, along with markets and plenty of excellent restaurants.
These trip ideas should help anyone who really wants to see the world pack up, take off, and discover new places.
