Places you can visit.

The Grand Canyon: If you’re a sucker for scenic beauty, then the  Grand Canyon will leave you mesmerized. This getaway and its beauty can be experienced from a whole different angle by rafting down the Colorado River. For many, the Grand Canyon river rafting is the ultimate dream of a lifetime. Taking in those moments of pure thrill while navigating the rapid stretches of white water, is an absolute rush. At the same time, tranquil in pockets of calm water as you experience a deep, soothing connection with nature. In between the gaps of thrill,  you can get to know the mighty Colorado River’s geology and history. Ideally, you should camp in the quiet of the canyon during the rafting trip.

Road Trip Across the USA: American highways are often compared to the majestic depths of the Grand Canyon. And there isn’t a better way than driving on these American highways and witness the adventure yourself. Get yourself introduced to American road culture by choosing the California State Route 1, or by taking Highway 61 (which is US Route 61 officially) while keeping in mind the legend of Robert Johnson (a celebrated blues guitarist) introducing yourself to the devil at the crossroads of highways 49 and 61.

Visiting Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky: This can and in fact should be added on your itinerary. Visiting the longest known cave system of the world to man that’s located below central Kentucky’s hills is absolutely worth the effort and time taken out for it. Several cave tours are offered here, who will allow you to explore the mysteries of the underworld by taking you into the depths, down into an enormous and magnificent and an unfathomable world of stalagmites and stalactites.

Adventures that await you.

Adventure Sailing at Florida’s Gulf Coast: All aboard a flight towards adventure! A coastal cruiser or a commodore — can be used to go sailing through the miniature islands off Fort Myers. Enjoy this amazing sea life, breathe in the beauty of the tropical barrier islands that act as hosts to frigate birds, pelicans, and gulls, and feel like a free spirit as the Gulf breezes blowing over like a calming influence. Don’t miss the beautiful sunset off the coast of Fort Myers Beach. You can even assist by setting the sails or get a chance to take the wheel for some added fun.

Going-to-the-sun road: Though this highway of the going-the-sun road in Glacier National Park remains open during the season and it is recommended that you check the status for the same before visiting, it’s worth every penny — spanning up to 50 miles, this architecture marvel will give you a view of gorgeous valleys, high mountains, colorful wildflowers, and cascading waterfalls. You cannot miss the breathtaking view all-around at the Logan Pass, which is the highest point of the road where it crosses the Continental Divide. You may even get the chance to see some wildlife such as bighorn sheep and mountain goats close to the Pass.

Sand Boarding in Colorado: That inner desire you’ve always had as a child to experience the rush of joy while sandboarding can finally come true! Possibly even sand sledding! Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes. Piled as high as up to 750 feet, these sand dunes are a part of the National Park and Preserve in Colorado. In summer, you can plan your adventure itinerary early in the morning or evening to avoid a scorching sand surface or thunderstorms. Though sand temperatures in spring and fall typically stay moderate throughout the day, try to avoid spring afternoons, as they can be extremely windy.

Bike Trip at the Grand Staircase-Escalante: To take a look at what lies at Utah’s diverse and enthralling geology by counting on a bike trip that takes you through the incomparable scenic trails of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is definitely a sight to see. From exploring hidden canyons and secret lakes to take in the stunning mountain vistas, you will have the experience of a lifetime. You might even probably come across large herds of elk and some other rare wildlife during your biking tour.

Sea Kayaking and Dog Sledding in Alaska: Hitch a dog sled ride and go speeding down a glacier or through the Alaskan forest, as you listen to some interesting stories from your guides’ first-hand, and cuddle the sled dogs. Once you have had your fill of this world-famous shore excursion, board a sea kayak to enjoy a gripping adventure in the Alaskan wilderness from close quarters while spotting a variety of wildlife. From humpback whales, dolphins, and sea otters to porpoises, and brown bears. In case your visit to Alaska happens to coincide with the best time to watch the Northern Lights, you may even pack this spectacular natural phenomenon in your itinerary and go back home filled with some of the best memories you’ve made.
