We believe that getting outside and enjoying all that nature has to offer should be a daily habit, whether it's going for a walk or simply enjoying your lunch break at the local park. But we also believe that we should make the most of our diverse and exciting world, through breaking out of our comfort zones and seeking new adventures.
There are limitless adventures all over the world for us to enjoy -- some more daring than others, but all rewarding and unique in their own right.
Below are some of our own bucket-list adventures to get you started on creating your own adventure!
Snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef. Australia's beautiful Great Barrier Reef, home to some of the most colorful coral reefs and marine life, is dying at an alarming rate. Plan an adventure and slot in a day trip snorkeling with guides through the Great Barrier Reef for the experience of a lifetime! If you're feeling extra adventurous, check out their options for Scuba Diving, too.
Hike the Kokoda Trail. The Kokoda Trail, located in Papua New Guinea, is the trail hiked back in 1942 by Japanese, Australian and Papua New Guinea troops during World War Two. (To learn more about the history of the trail, click here). The trail itself is 96km long (or 59.6 miles) venturing through forest, mountains and everything in between. While it's certainly a challenge in every form, from camping to physical exertion, the Kokoda trail is an emotionally fulfilling and rewarding experience for all those that tackle it's turns.
Complete a Major City Marathon. Training for and finishing a marathon, whether you walk or run, is a lifetime accomplishment for everyone. That being said, finishing a major marathon in a landmark city is an experience of another level -- with crowds, live music, after parties and a city-wide shut down, being a part of such a spectacle will keep you moving and smiling the whole way through. We recommend raising money for a charity and competing with some friends so you an bask in the experience together.
Explore a Rainforest. Rainforests are some of the most exotic and beautiful parts of our world, and just as with the Great Barrier Reef, they're disappearing at a heartbreaking rate. Experiencing the adventure and beauty of any major rainforest around the world is a breathtaking and humbling adventure that will leave you in awe of our planet and in touch with yourself in a whole new way.
Go on a Safari. The best thing about adding a safari adventure to your bucket list is that this experience can be as rough and tough or planned and perfected as you want. Whether you choose to camp solo, or "glamp" with your friends, you can experience a Safari in safe yet thrilling ways. Still not convinced? Try starting off easy with a Wine Safari Here to test the waters before committing to the full-scale adventure.
Try Bungee Jumping. For those adrenaline-junkies out there, we suggest looking into bungee jumping. While it's certainly a unique and thrilling adventure, bungee jumping at its finest is also often found in breathtaking locations around the world, so you'll get to travel and experience new countries at the same time as ticking off that bucket list goal.
Cycle Japan. Explore the city in a way you've never before: on a bike. Sign up for a cycling tour and see the city in all its colors and culture! Tours can take you from food stops, to historic sites, to tourists must-sees, both inside and outside of the bustling city!
Go Mountain Biking. If you're cruising comfortably on your ride to work, in your spin classes or on your weekend rides, perhaps it's time for an upgrade. Why not look into mountain biking? Of course, the tricky terrain makes mountain biking a much more extreme version of cycling, but if you find a professional who can take you along a scenic and safe route with the proper equipment and gear, it can become the experience of a lifetime.
Explore our National Prarks. Despite living in such a diverse and naturally wondrous country, many of us haven't seen all the beautiful sites on offer. Whether you choose to tour the Grand Canyon or enjoy the falls of Yosemite, our country has endless experiences and adventures on offer, so why not make the most of it?
