Truly, traveling is one of the greatest pleasures in life. Take advantage of your time here on the planet, embark on exciting adventure travel tours and participate in challenging adventure treks. Here are some destinations that you and your friends may want to visit before you kick the bucket.

Arctic Wilderness Lodge in Canada

The lodge is located only 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle and provides adventurers with many opportunities to participate in adventure treks and hikes.   The big attraction here is the wildlife. In this expansive tundra, travellers will get the chance to watch Arctic wildlife that includes muskox, sea birds, eider ducks, beluga whales and polar bears, all at large in their natural habitat.

Travellers may also try kayaking and cruising with the guidance of experts from our adventure tour company. The Arctic tundra, rivers and trails can even be further explored using sturdy all-terrain vehicles.

Aside from these exciting adventures, travellers will also enjoy comfortable accommodation and excellent cuisine. Furthermore, those interested in biodiversity and environmental conservation can listen to several lectures on the wildlife research programs being conducted in the region.

Ancient Persia and Modern Iran

Today, Iran has become arguably one of the most controversial countries in the world. But despite being steeped in controversy, Iran remains in possession of the greatest concentration of historic sites. This fascinating country is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, which started with the formation of the Proto-Elamite kingdom in the 3200BC. Several thousand years later, the country now boasts impressive mosques and Zoroastrian temples.

Experience the awe-inspiring culture of ancient Persia as well as the evolving spirit of modern Iran. When planning to visit the country, look for adventure travel companies that allow travellers to get into small mountain villages, and to interact with the local people. This will allow you to discover the wonders of ancient Persia, and learn about everyday living in modern Iran.

An expedition to the islands will allow travellers to embrace these various local cultures and languages, and to get a glimpse of the lives of one of the happiest people in the world.
