Adventure Attractions And Landmarks Guide

High adventure gets your adrenaline pumping and may or may not involve some element of risk, though on a good guided tour safety is always the top priority. On a high adventure trip, you may find yourself rafting Class V rapids in Nepal, scaling a mountain peak in British Columbia, steering a dogsled across the Arctic tundra, riding a hot air balloon over Egypt's Valley of the Kings, crossing a glacier in Switzerland, camping in the Moroccan desert, watching whales close-up on a Zodiac in Alaska, or bungee jumping at Victoria Falls. Whatever gets your heart racing, you can find a tour to take you there.

New Zealand and Beyond

Queenstown New Zealand, the self proclaimed “adventure capital of the world,” has every right to the title. With the birthplace of commercial bungee jumping just outside of town at the AJ Hackett Bridge, jet boating, paragliding, and multiple other activities, there’s no other place quite like it for adrenaline junkies!

But that doesn’t mean it’s the only destination for high adventure. South Africa for example lays claim to the longest zipline in the world, and Slovenia is a mecca for spelunkers, with over 8,000 caves available to explore with a guide. Guided adventure travel is a great option, especially for avoiding crowds and getting the best experience possible.

Camaraderie and Achievement

If there’s two things that come out of just about every high adventure tour, it’s the sense of achievement one feels from facing fears and the camaraderie of fellow adventure enthusiasts. 

One of the best parts of high adventure is there’s always room to “level up” meaning there is a starting point for everyone. Mountain climbing for example starts on small manageable hills but once you gain confidence you can challenge yourself to tougher and tougher outings.

The Changing Definition of Adventure

If you don’t think “adventure” trips are for you, think again. While the term does bring to mind daring feats pushing the limits of what’s possible, in reality most adventure tours and activities are very safe and cater to multiple levels of experience. Obviously there is some risk involved...this isn’t lounging on the beach! But if you’re on the fence, know that the experience is well worth it.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek-4 Days

Possibly the best customer service experience of my life. Anuj is more than just a manager, his actions really reflect how much he cares of his customers. The trek (poon hill) was perfectly organized and the guide Pasang was magnificent. After the trek, White HillAdventure was more than helpful, taking care of my stay in Pokhara and transportation to KTM and later to the airport. Read more

Historical and artistic beauty of Kathmandu August 2019


Travel Max Guide Company Reviews

My 5 days trip in the Kathmandu valley worth the most. I was highly passionate to observe the historically and artistically recognized beautiful temples in the heart of Kathmandu valley after the devastating earthquake in 2015. The travel max team during my entire trip took me through all the affected and religiously protected temples and culturally observed locations. I got a chance to closely observe the their local festival during the time which have captured in my mobile and my memories. The valley though was difficult to commute and travel due to the ongoing construction, the care and respect and the love from the local inhabitants was phenomenal. I will definitely be back with the travel max guide team to make another long trip may be that time to other places. Thank you guys for your service and I recommend Travel Max. Read more

Great expectations fulfilled and more! August 2019


Authentic Vacations Company Reviews

This June, I led a group of 12 on a tour to Ireland. Maggie Lunde was my group specialist who did an excellent job helping me achieve the desired plans for our visit. She was thorough and very responsive to our needs. Our chauffeur for the tour was Martin McAviney, a delightful guide and great friend to us. From the start, he let me know that he was there to fulfill all our plans and wishes and to feel free to communicate them clearly to him. He not only delivered but once he had a sense of our group, he gave us excellent additions which fit perfectly for us. His warmth and great sense of humor added greatly to the enjoyment and success of tour. Members thanked me afterward for "making our dreams come true" and another described the tour as "life-changing" I whole-heartedly share these accolades with Martin and Maggie. Read more
