Unmissable adventures around the world; Lonely Planet
Hike, climb, cycle, surf, canoe… there are countless ways to explore a country if you’ve got a taste for adventure. But which of these pulse-quickening experiences fall into the ‘don’t-leave-without’ category?
In this excerpt from Lonely Planet’s Atlas of Adventures, we look at some of the action-packed activities that define a destination, from kayaking through sea caves in Vietnam to paragliding over beaches in Turkey.
1. Don’t leave the USA without…
Hiking Zion National Park’s Angels Landing Trail – just 8km long, but utterly unforgettable. The last 100m traverses a ledgy via ferrata route to a pedestal smack in the middle of the canyon, 460m above the canyon floor and the Virgin River below. Not for the faint of heart or the acrophobic.
