Dude Beaches can be great adventure travels for the whole family. The Ponderosa Ranch in Nebraska gives you an opportunity for back-breaking work, while at the same time allowing you vacation time on a ranch. You can sleep in the ranch's guest cabins. During the day you become a real working ranch hand. Guests hop on horses and help gather up and drive the ranch's cattle from one field to another. At night there are campfire stories to be shared, some home cooking to be enjoyed and some excellent activities to participate in. When you have some down time, you have a few different options, including hunting, fishing, hiking and taking a horseback ride. This is a terrific vacation for families because people from all age groups and skill levels can participate.
Do you fantasize about seeing large game up close? Have you always wanted to see exotic animals in their natural habitats? Why not go on an African Safari. There are tours that go all over the continent of Africa. Select one of the many trusted outfits and let them show you where to see hippos, elephants and giraffes in their native habitats. See prides of lions and packs of hyenas. Look at birds that you're only see in the zoo. If you are an animal lover, a Safari is for sure a wonderful way to experience adventure travels. How about a beach? Maybe the tropical weather will do you great! Boracay is a must if you want to have a wonderful time and relax.There are countless ways an "adventure travel" can be defined. For some it involves extreme activities like climbing the tallest mountains in the world or experiencing extreme climates. For other it includes a challenging task they do not have in their daily life, such as driving cattle or hiking different terrain, etc. Still for others, adventure travels include some learning time for new things and still having a stress-free trip. To sum up: it doesn't matter what you're interested in, you can find an adventure vacation perfect for you!

Some of the Best Adventure Travel Destinations!

How did you like your last vacation? Did you enjoy yourself? Did you find something fun to do? Was there some quiet time too or did your last vacation consist of being the taxi for your family, working on the yard and other household chores? Was your last "vacation" actually a "staycation"? Why not go for something different this year? When you have a little bit of time off, why not try out one of the many adventure travels available in your hometown. If crossing the state line is not an option, there are probably many different adventures you can participate in. If you have the money, why not get out on a true adventure? Here are some adventure travels that are well-known favorites.

If you enjoy being outside and using your survival skills to live off the land, why not try an Australian Walkabout? These have become noteworthy adventures, especially after one of the main actors on the television show Lost tried to go on one. The original thought for an Australian Walkabout was for you and your fellow adventurers to get out into the Australian Outback on a guided tour. When you are participating on a walkabout, you completely live off the land. You hunt for your own food, build your own shelter from what is available and take on any "elements" that might come your way (weather, animals, etc). It can be described as extreme camping and can be very satisfying.

Are you an experienced hunter but getting bored of the wild game on your side of the mountain? Why not get out on a hunting travel excursion?

Nearly every continent has a specific type of tour and companies that will teach you how to hunt the game available on their local terrain. Do you dream of hunting large (non-endangered) game in Africa? You can do it. Do you dream of getting out in the wilds of western America for hunting? You can do that, as well. The most important thing to decide for a hunting adventure is selecting what type of game you want to hunt. From that point the only thing you need to do is figure out logistics, like: "how will I get my hunting gear there or will they provide it?"
Go on a Llama Trek! Anybody can do some horseback riding. If you want some funky adventure travels but don't have the money to travel outside of the US, check out the Hurricane Creek Llama Treks in Oregon. These treks will have you camping outside for the trip--you bring your own equipment and are responsible for all of it as well as for packing and unpacking your llama bags. These are great trips because you can either ride your own llama in the Oregon wilderness or you can walk the trails and lead your llama behind you. When else in your life will you have the chance to go llama riding? How about a beach? Maybe the tropical weather will do you great! Boracay Hotels is a must if you want to have a great time and enjoy a vacation.

Adventure travels are not always about doing something death defying. You can have a glorious adventure vacation without bungee jumping, skydiving or praying a shark won't nibble on a cage. Meanwhile, that is only half the excitement of any adventure-based vacation, for an adrenaline addict.

The key to having a real adventurous vacation is to get out of your comfort zone while still having an enjoyable time. Get to it!
