Luxury travel is often synonymous with sitting by the pool, getting pampered, and taking it easy. While this is a great aspect of taking a vacation, some people need to get out and seek what adventure the destination holds. If your travel bucket list is lacking adventure, here are 4 luxury travel destinations where you’ll find some thrilling activities.
Skiing in Colorado
Although all seasons offer adventurous activities, winter is when Colorado really shines. This outdoor playground offers long winters and heavy snowfalls. Pair that with the high altitude mountains and you’ve got a world class ski destination. Whether you visit Aspen, Beaver Creek, Vail, or Snowmass, you’ll find intricate ski runs that range from easy to very challenging. All of these areas are filled with amazing accommodations. After a day of hitting the slopes guests can cosy up around the fire in a luxurious private home rental.
Hiking in Hawaii
Hiking is one of Hawaii’s best activities. The whole island is filled with hiking trails surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Whether you’re vacationing with family, friends, or just yourself, it’s a great idea to take a break from the beach and go on an adventurous hike. The most popular hike is the Diamond Head Summit Trail in Oahu. This thrilling hike takes you up a mountain to a volcanic crater measuring 3500 feet in diameter. If you’re travelling with small children in tow there’s plenty of other amazing, adventurous hikes to enjoy.
Scuba Diving in Turks and Caicos
The islands of Turks and Caicos are often regarded as a top scuba diving spot in the Caribbean. While relaxing in a villa by the pool is a great way to enjoy the luxury of Turks, going for a dive to explore the ocean is a necessity. There are multiple diving sites to choose from, including the popular French Passage and French Cay.
Surfing in Costa Rica
Costa Rice is one of the most ecologically diverse travel destinations in the world. With hundreds of local beaches it’s naturally a popular spot for surfing enthusiasts. While some of the beaches are more suited for experienced surfers, there are areas with calm waters where visitors can safely try it out for the first time. We recommend staying in Nosara or Dominical where the most beautiful local beaches are found.
