This is an inspirational planning tool to take you
all around the world in pursuit of adventure. Every
week of the year, somewhere around in the world, there
is an adventure experience to be had. This guide will
tell you about adventure activities all over the world,
and the best times to undertake them.
Discover a whole range of extraordinary experiences,
including hiking in New Zealand, diving with sharks
in South Africa, ballooning in Switzerland and storm
watching in Alaska. Choose from over 100 activities
in 130 countries, some to challenge you, some to enjoy
at a leisurely pace, and catering to all fitness levels.
After all, adventure doesn't need to mean hardship.
Be inspired and plan a year to remember!
Divided into 52 weeks, each section profiles the very
best adventure holidays to immerse yourself in at that
time – whether it’s trekking Iceland’s
interior at one of the only times of the year it’s
accessible (August), encountering Costa Rica’s
850 animal species during the country’s driest
month (February), or seeing the rapids of Victoria Falls
at their best (November). Each entry includes an inspiring
description of the activity and captivating photographs,
as well as essential information such as ‘why
now?’ and the fitness or expertise level required.
The book also demonstrates that adventure holidays
don’t have to involve putting your life in your
hands – the book profiles everything from the
North Pole Marathon (requiring superior fitness!) to
watching wild turtles in Vanuatu (no strenuous activity
involved). Whether high or low impact, the common link
between each experience is that they evoke the spirit
of adventure: achievement, discovery, wonder, and taking
yourself out of the everyday.
Featuring fun-filled family activities like ballooning,
fishing and horse riding; perennially popular activities
like cycling, diving, mountaineering, sailing, and trekking
to cutting-edge experiences like bungy jumping, heli-skiing,
zip lining and even space travel, A Year of Adventures
makes an ideal gift for anyone with an adventurous spirit.
