For most people, a vacation means relaxing, whether on the beach or beside the pool. However, other people prefer to kick it up a notch, to do something that gets their blood and their adrenaline flowing. If you fall into the latter category, “adventure travel” is probably your idea of a perfect vacation. Adventure travel usually involves activities like wilderness hiking, kayaking, or whitewater rafting. However, many adventure travel providers also offer luxurious accommodations so that you don’t feel like you’re back in summer camp.

Adventure travel opportunities are available almost everywhere, especially places that are a little remote, located away from “civilization.” According to Road and Travel Magazine, two of the best places for adventure travel are Brazil and Australia. Travel prices to Australia are the lowest they’ve been in a long time, too, so now is a great time to go!

The Caribbean also has some wonderful adventure travel-oriented resorts-check out this travel deal from Punta Cana Club and Resort in the Dominican Republic. You get three nights in a Deluxe room, a biking expedition, horseback riding, guided hiking and more for $262 per night.

Canada is also a great adventure travel destination. National Geographic’s Adventure Travel Deal of the week is for a stay in British Columbia’s God’s Pocket Marine Provincial Park, a great place for sea kayaking with marine life like dolphins and otters.

Wherever you decide to go, if you want to leave the United States this summer, you’ll need to get a fast passport.   For most people, the quickest and easiest way to get a fast passport is to use a private passport expediting company to submit your passport application. An expediting company can hand-deliver your application to the Department of State for super-fast passport processing, sometimes as quick as 24 hours.
