Gorgeous Beaches of Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka

Some of the world’s most beautiful and culturally rich areas are often those ravaged by war or political strife. Such has been the case with Sri Lanka, but the island nation is recovering from over 25 years fighting and opening up to travelers from all walks of life. What visitors will discovers is a place with exciting experiential attractions such as leopard tracking, whale-watching and views of mass elephant migrations in Minneriya National Park. Other attractions include eight World Heritage sites, one of which is the fifth-century city of Sigiriya.

Belgium

Lovers of biking and beer will fall in love with this tour package from Ciclismo Classico. This bike tour will take travellers 326-miles over nine days. Along the way, adventures will see beautiful castles, castles, and of course, breweries offering plenty of opportunities to taste.

Weeping Wall, Going-to-the-Sun Road, Glacier National Park, Montana

Adventure travel is often characterized by being active in an exotic or remote location. But when you get down to it, adventure can be had just about anywhere as long as the traveler is up for the challenge. USA Today reports on adventure destinations right here in the US to satisfy the traveler who wants to break away from the daily grind.  Below is a sampling of their list of top American adventure destinations.

Kayaking the Na Pali Coast, Kauai, Hawaii

This tropical rainforest features cliffs that rise out from the ocean to over 4,000 feet overhead. One of the best ways for travelers to experience this spectacle is one one of the 17-mile kayaking trips that run along the coasts. The trip is great workout for anyone of moderate physical ability and offers a challenge with the payoff of breaktaking views. Outfitters run trips from April to October, with waters typically at their calmest in August.

Hiking Zion National Park, Utah

This National Park has an assortment of adventure experiences for the visitor to choose from. Among the top choices for nature lovers is the 16-mile hike descending Virgin River Canyon. Rock walls reach as high as 2,000 feet and involves hiking directly through the water – a challenge for even the most enthusiastic hiker. The park is open year round, but this hike is best taken anytime except April and May when flash flooding becomes a real concern.

Bicycling Glacier National Park, Mont.

This park is famous among cyclists for its Going-to-the-Sun Road which offers some of the most spectacular views of one of the nation’s grandest parks. For most of the route, you will ride above the tree line, getting views unlike any other. However, cyclists are not allowed on the route after 6pm, so plan accordingly.
