Open plains, soaring mountains, and untouched wilderness - what more could you want in a travel destination? Explore the vast country made famous by the great Genghis Khan himself, and in the method used for centuries by the slowly disappearing nomadic people who live here.

Biking Bolivia's Death Road

Connecting Bolivia's portion of the Amazon rainforest with its capital, this 65 kilometre road rises 4,650 metres while providing awe inspiring views of the jungles below. It's a long bike ride, but the views will be well worth it.

The Trans-Siberian Railway

From European cities, to Islamic mosques and rugged scenic beauty, this train journey shows off everything that Russia has to offer.

The Inca Trail

One of the world's most famous hikes, the Inca Trail is a 43 kilometre trek to Machu Picchu, the once lost Inca city. This combination of beautiful scenery and dramatic ancient architecture is sure to be a highlight of anyone's travel plans.

Sky Diving In Rio de Janeiro

With the World Cup this summer and the Summer Olympics in 2016, there is no better time to go to Rio. Quite possibly the best, and most fun, way to see Rio is from the air as you plummet from a plane above this unforgettable city.

An Antarctic Expedition

The final frontier? For travellers most definitely. Visiting the seventh continent is no easy (or cheap) feat, but it is truly the travel story to trump all others. And see it fast - with global warming, who knows how long you have until this frozen landscape is gone.

Summiting Mount Kilimanjaro

The tallest peak in Africa, Kilimanjaro is also known for its accessibility. Although in no way an easy jaunt, this multi-day trek can be done by novices, and it offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

A Scuba Trip In The Great Barrier Reef

Located off the eastern coast of Australia this, the largest coral reef in the world, is one of the most accessible adventures on this list. Multi-day trips will take you around the reef where you can snorkel or scuba in what will seem like your own personal aquarium.

Tongariro National Park Volcano Hike

Made famous in the Lord of the Rings movies, it is no secret that New Zealand is home to beautiful scenery. Some of the best of this natural beauty can be seen in Tongariro National Park where you can hike, ski, and explore three active volcanoes (one of which erupted in 2012).

Petra Camel Trek

The ancient city of Petra is undoubtedly one of the wonders of the Middle East. Anyone can  just go see Petra, but true adventurers can now go there by camel, allowing you to travel Bedouin style through the deserts of Jordan to this ancient city.

A Mountain Gorilla Expedition

Although a successful sighting is never assured, this once-in-a-lifetime trip lets you get up close and personal with one of man's closest living relatives.

Alaska Dog Sledding Tour

In one of the most remote corners of the United States, Alaska offers adventurers a chance to explore seemingly endless frozen landscapes. With a dog sled tour, you can see this world the way it was meant to be seen.

Greenland Kayaking

With fewer than 60,000 people on the entire island, there might be no better remote getaway than Greenland. Not for the faint of heart, this trek requires helicopter rides, hikes, and a lot of kayaking. The solitude and the beautiful icy scenery make this adventure well worth the time, effort, and money.
