Adventure Travel Guide

Adventure Travel


Adventure Travel is an exciting niche inside the world of holidaying and vacationing. Many people love to travel the world and explore new destinations away from the comforts of their own home but not as many wish to push their body to the limits in the process. Adventure travel has many styles and variations depending on the individual's interests. For me, I love to combine backpacking the world with outdoor and adventure activities such as fishing, hiking, wildlife safaris, rafting, snorkelling, mountain bike riding, sandboarding and many.

I grew up in Tasmania, Australia and much of my childhood and adult years were spent either playing sport or completing one of the outdoor activities mentioned above while camping. It's only natural that my love of travel and adventure has overlapped while backpacking the world. Find out more about the epic travel adventures I have been on in destinations such as Europe, Africa, South America and Australia.

I have been fortunate enough to go tuna fishing 50km off the bottom of Cape Town, hike the Inka Trail to Machu Picchu, ride the "world's deadliest road" on a mountain bike, camp inside African National Parks with lions and other animals, spend weeks living with indigenous families the Amazon Jungle, go white-water rafting on the best circuit in the world and much more.
