Tour du Mont Blanc

Mont Blanc is one of Europe’s most well known adventure spots; those with even the slightest adventurous streak know Chamonix in summer is where it's at. So popular, the area's meandering climbs do get crowded with multitudes of hopefuls dragging themselves uphill in questionable lycra, tipping water all over themselves as they fight for air under the scorching sun. However, hit Mont Blanc off-season, and you'll have these same favourite routes are all to yourself. The perfect time to really test yourself and find out what the fuss it all about.

Hike to Ciudad Perdida, Colombia’s Lost City

Colombia has become a mecca for adventure tourism in recent years, since the government and FARC rebels have come to somewhat of an agreement which has brought peace to the country. With an incredible diverse culture, Colombia has so much to offer; from a vibrant party scene, pristine paradise beaches and jungle. 

Colombia's lost city - not so lost anymore, can be found in Santa Marta. Tayrona National Park is home to Ciudad Perdida and can only be accessed by booking a hiking tour, which will lead you on an unforgettable journey through dense jungle,  visiting native villages, swimming in crystal lagoons, before ascending 1200 steps to the lost city.

Canoe the Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe

Whereas other equivalent national parks have long been established as some of the best adventure destinations, Mana Pools has been overlooked - until now, that is.
