Plan on Adventure

Make Your Dream Adventure a Reality

Interest in adventure travel has been quickly mounting over the last few decades as travelers seek a respite from the mindless herds of tourists and the same-old boring vacations. Adventure travel lets us free ourselves from the ordinary and pushes us to elevate our upper limits. Whether you successfully navigate a Class V rapid in Costa Rica, share a meal and a story with a Bhutanese farmer on your trek through his country, or take in a 360o view at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, you universally realize that you are alive.

Travel is commonly referred to as “adventure travel” when you are no longer in your own backyard and if two of three components are met:

  • You engage in a physical activity
  • You participate in a cultural exchange or interaction
  • You have an engagement with nature

Exploration, discovery, and thrills are the most valuable commodities our planet has to offer. Through these experiences, we find out what it means to be human. The Earth is beckoning you to trek through its countrysides, climb its mountains, pedal its roads and trails, hike to its hidden treasures, paddle its coastlines, raft down its rivers, marvel at its wildlife, and play in its winter wonderlands. Heed the call. Anything is possible. All you need is a dream and a plan.

The Plan on Adventure website is your go-to resource for adventure travel planning. The dream is all up to you (although you’ll get some inspiration for that too). If you complete everything prescribed in this web site, you should have little trouble making your dream experience a reality.
