Adventures recommended by Lonely Planet for 2014

Lonely Planet gave me some tips on 10 of the best adventures for the year that just begun.
  • 1.       Mountain biking – Avoriaz, France.
  • 2.       Sailing, Cape Horn, Chile.
  • 3.       Ice Marathon, Antarctica – the marathon is programmed to start between 19 – 23 November, but it depends very much on the weather
  • 4.       Swimming, Sporades Isles, Greece – what do you say to an average 5 km /day of swimming?
  • 5.       Climbing Mount Baker on snowboard or skis, Washington, USA.
  • 6.       Kayaking, Kamchatka, Russia – for this adventure you need to have some experience.
  • 7.       The mountains in China are truly special and we can’t deny that! Let’s remember the rainbow mountains, for example. So of course among the recommandations for 2014 we find Rock Climbing, Yangshuo, China. And you can even attend the november rock climbing festival.
  • 8.      Whitewater rafting, Mosquito Coast, Honduras – after rafting, you can also do some snorkelling on an isolated island.
  • 9.       Stand-up paddleboarding, Dominican Republic – the best time to go is between May and September, but tours are organised throughout the year.
  • 10.   Travel by horse and cart, Myanmar/Burma – something that is less extreme and everyone could enjoy. Even the faint-hearted.
