There are adventures waiting for you all over the world. If you’re fortunate enough to have a chance to travel around the world in your lifetime, here are seven must-have adventures you need to put on your bucket list!
1. North America: See The Northern Lights
The Aurora Borealis or “dawn of the north” are one of nature’s greatest displays of wonder. It’s worth venturing up to remote Alaska just to marvel at this mysterious, multicolored lightshow which will have you pinching yourself at the beauty of this northern phenomenon. Seeing the northern lights is often described as a transformative experience for those who see them up close. Plus, you don’t have to be an “outdoorsy” person to enjoy the show. The Alyeska Resort, located only 40 miles outside of Anchorage, is surrounded by gorgeous forest and impressive mountain peaks. Its relatively isolated location makes it the ideal spot for viewing the northern lights. Plus, you can arrange wake up calls so you don’t miss the big show!
2. South America: Canoe Down the Amazon River
While it may be threatened by logging and other commercial pursuits, The Amazon still has the claim to fame of encompassing the world’s largest continuous cover of tropical rainforest. Go on a guided canoeing adventure downstream, while camping on beaches and hiking in search of wildlife along the way. This is definitely not for the faint of heart. Only the most adventurous travellers will truly enjoy roughing it in the woods with very few amenities. A fit body is also a necessity in order to guarantee a successful trip.
