For some, traveling is more about adventure than relaxation, and vacationing a time to meet challenges every day. Get well off the beaten path as you search for adventure amongst some of the world's most enchanting cities and landscapes. From jungles, to mountain tops, rugged coastlines to remote lakes, finding adventure on your bike is never hard.
What makes for adventure? It can be the landscape, the culture, the activities you’re doing, or the remoteness of your journey, but the best adventures are a combination of all the above. Adventure-based tours can be found in guided, self-guided, and self-supported tours; however you go, you want to make sure you can handle the demands of your adventure yourself. Multi-activity tours can also bring the adventure; you may find yourself rafting down whitewater rivers, ziplining through the jungle canopy, or hiking to a mountain peak, making for a truly memorable travel experience.
The familiarity of the culture, customs, language, and religion can be a great influence on the adventure level of a cycling tour. The more foreign the culture/language/customs, the more challenging one may find the experience; for some this is exactly the kind of adventure they are looking for. Cycling experiences through some of the world's most unique and remote countries takes some extra planning and organization as you navigate inconsistent road conditions and difficult weather to find the true meaning of adventure.
For some, cycling through a modern country with separated bike pathways, all the comfortable amenities, and traveling at a leisurely pace just isn't enough. If you’re looking for more, try a multi-activity tour, or a cycling trip through a more adventurous and challenging country. One where the landscape, culture, and customs will demand the most out of you but will reward you with one of the most memorable experiences of your life.
