Top Travel Adventure Destinations by Tia Jones

While many of us consider vacations as a time to relax, maybe enjoy some fine food and drinks and see some of the places that we had only previously read about, others look for a little more when planning a trip. Some of us want to get out and enjoy the outdoors or maybe the wilderness and spice up our vacation with a little bit of adventure that you can't find in your own backyard. Realizing this, we thought we'd take a look at some of the top travel destinations for those that are looking for excitement on their next (adventure) vacation!


Home of some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere on the planet, trips to Maui for adventure seekers often revolve around some of the gorgeous terrain that make up the mountainous regions of the island. Hiking through some of the primeval jungles of Maui can be awe-inspiring and can be the highlight of any trip to Hawaii. Outside of that, adventure-seekers will also be interested in the surfing that a Hawaii vacation has to offer that brings in people from all over the world.

Channel Islands

Located just off the coast of California, a trip to Santa Barbara or Los Angeles trip is not complete until you get to visit Channel Islands. This chain of five islands is perfect for anyone looking for a paddling adventure and can be highlighted by sea caves, which dot the shore. Take an expert with you if you can and be sure to bring plenty of water and let someone know where you are when you're paddling around these magnificent islands.

Niagara Falls

This might a little outdated, but Niagara tours used to include a barrel and a whole lot of water. Now however, Niagara Falls tours are more likely to include a trip to this beautiful locale where you can see these raging waters up close and take in stories of adventures of the past.

The Galapagos Islands

The nice thing about a trip to The Galapagos Islands is that not only is this a great place to enjoy an adventurous vacation, but it can also be romantic. Try snorkeling off the coast and enjoy the wildlife and aquatic life that resides just under the crisp ocean layer on a honeymoon or just go with some friends and enjoy the trip.

The Grand Canyon

Not that this needs much explanation, but trips to the Grand Canyon often include a helicopter ride over this giant chasm that's 18 miles wide, 277 miles long and 6,000 feet deep. After your helicopter ride, check out various places that'll allow other adventure, such as hiking or mule rides down into the canyon.


Likely our coldest mention, Alaska vacations often include cruises. However, our more adventurous travelers might be willing to hop in a small vessel to do a little exploring of their own. While this might not be much of an adventure, it sure brings you up close to parts of the world you probably haven't seen before and hopping in a small boat on an Alaska tour might be one of the more adventurous things you'll end up doing.
