Are you a traveler who thrives in exploring epic world locations? Wild outback, raging waters, whirling sands, hazy cities, and everything in between. In this article, we’ll list some of the most epic word travel destinations the likes of you shouldn’t miss next year.
Amazon Houseboat Adventure.
Have you watched the adventure-drama of Werner Herzog’s masterpiece film, Fitzcarraldo? Now you can relive the adventure by taking a 10-day old-school houseboat river cruise up some of the Amazon River’s most remote parts. The rustic 26-meter long houseboat will take you on a meandering journey through the Amazonian from Manaus to Jau National Park. The journey is everything a lavish cruise isn’t.
The Global Scavenger Hunt.
Perfect for savvy adventurers and globetrotters alike. The Global Scavenger Hunt takes you on a blind date with the world that will have you traveling the globe over 23-days visiting ten secret countries as a participant to the annual contest. Not recommended for those Type-A planners, because you won’t know which country you are going next until you get to the airport. It’s actually like the Amazing Race for real people. Do you consider yourself the real deal explorer? Try this then!
Papua New Guinea.
Hailed as the last great cultural adventure on the planet. The majestic Papua New Guinea is best visited by experienced travelers looking for adventures that go beyond the cliché of being off the beaten path. Why? There’s hardly any path to beat here. It’s a real place where nature is supreme. Your smartphone travel apps won’t work here, you’ll find few in-country travel-friendly buildings, and you’ll need to trust strangers in strange lands – money use can be dubious too. It’s one of the last real great unknown, so be REALLY PREPARED when you decide to come here.
North America Roadtrip.
Still reeling from the 2016 U.S. elections? Why not take a little bit of trip to the land of the free and see firsthand why America is so divided. Pick one: Route 66, which is from Chicago to LA, Great River Road from Wisconsin to the Big Easy. There’s also the Highway 1 from Maine to Key West or the Lincoln Highway from Jersey to Oregon. Who knows, you might understand why it’s called the United States of America, but only in name.
Namibia is your ultimate eco vacation destination. From sandboarding, Grand Canyon-like adventures, to a photo safari along one of the globe’s most forbidding coastlines, Namibia built its reputation over the last decade as a leader in sustainable tourism and environmental stewardship. It’s also home to all of Africa’s most splendid wildlife: lions, gazelles, rhinos, elephants, as well as the largest free-roaming cheetah population in the world.
