Are you fed up with having to sit on a couch and watch television with your parents because they would have made you feel bad about choosing something else for your vacation time? Getting over the guilt can be hard. At the same time, why should you get to take a vacation you enjoy once in a while? Why not decide to have a real adventure the next time you have some free time?

Do you fantasize about going off and touring a secluded location, climbing an extreme mountain or trying something different? Do you desire to have fun and challenge your limits while expanding your horizons? If so, why do you keep settling for drab vacations? Why are you settling for sitting around and doing nothing? Why get your blood pumping? Not matter the activity you fancy or the limits you want to get close to, there are many adventure travels just waiting to be booked by you. Here are some choices for individuals who are tired of repeating the same vacations.

If you enjoy being outside and using your survival skills to live off the land, why not try an Australian Walkabout? These have become trendy especially after one of the main actors on the TV show Lost made an attempt to go on one. The original thought for an Australian Walkabout was for you and your fellow adventurers to get out into the Australian Outback on a guided tour. When you are participating on a walkabout, you completely live off the land. You hunt and gather all your food, build your shelter from materials on the land and take on all the "elements" that may come your way (weather, animals, etc). It is kind of like extreme camping and can be incredibly fulfilling.|It may be hard to believe, but some cruises are considered adventure travels. There are some cruises with target docking points, such as Europe or the Greek Isles, which can be a wonderful way to get out on an expedition to learn about the great moments in history and tour historical sites. Aren't you curious to tour the setting where the first Olympic games took place? Don't you want to tour Stonehenge? There are many options to keep you active while on the boat. These cruises tend to come with many activities to keep you active, such as rock climbing and sea diving. There is so much more to a cruise than lounging around on the lido deck!|A noteworthy example of extreme adventure travels is mountain climbing. The West Coast Mountain Guides take globetrotting adventurers out on climbing excursions on a fairly regular basis. You can pick from locations throughout the western Canadian provinces. Climbers can select from rock climbing, ice climbing or even snow mountaineering. If your adventuresome side kicks in, they can take you on an excursion that involves all three.

Before you head out on one of these vacations, however, make sure you are in top physical shape. Mountain climbing experiences are not to be had by apathetic and out-of-shape individuals!|Dog sledding is an awesome adventure! You probably thought that dog sledding could only be done by trained professionals. If you're thinking about the Iditarod, you're right. If you just want to explore the sport a little bit and have some fun, Alaskan Husky Adventures is what you need. This group offers adventurers three or two day packages. You take up your own groceries and sleep in the cabins they provide and during the day you are given lessons on sledding and taken on tours by the trained professionals on staff.|Are you a photography enthusiast?

Just go wherever the tour is going when you have time to take a vacation. Get caught up in the spontaneity of it!

Dude Ranches can be amazing adventures for the whole family. The Ponderosa Ranch in Nebraska gives you an opportunity for back-breaking work, while at the same time allowing you vacation time on a ranch. You can stay in the ranch's guest cabins.

With an extreme adventure vacation however, you can go skydiving over the Grand Canyon. Take a hot air balloon across the Australian outback. When you make the choice to go to the extremes, the entire world is your playing field. Many extreme vacationers are attracted to India, for paragliding. Why not give that a whirl?|

Do you love to go hunting but are tired of the game that surrounds your home area? Why not get out on a hunting travel excursion?

Most continents have some type of tour and outfits that will show you how to hunt the wild game that is found in their part of the world. Do you have a desire to go hunting in Africa for the larger-than-life (non-endangered) wild animals? You can do it. Are you into hunting out in the wild west of America? You can do that too.

This is an ideal vacation for any chef wanna-be or any food lover.|Have you ever considered going out on a deep-see fishing trip? Most people don't think about fishing, when they think about adventure travels. However, when you are out in the middle of the big blue sea, fishing is totally new. For starters, you typically fight much larger fish, plus you may have to fight the elements of the sea. Possibilities are endless when you're out at sea. The type of deep sea fish that you want to catch will help you pick your destination. However, if you prefer, you can always choose your location based on climate and "home base" scenery.

Why not choose to have fun and an adventure once in a while--there's no rule that says you have to spend every vacation feeling bored. There are lots of different adventure travel tours to take; the hardest part of your whole vacation will be deciding what you want to do and where you want to go. Go have fun!|A reason for adventure travels is to get people to step beyond the boundaries of their comfort zone. They help you to experience sides of your personality that you usually like to hide. Are you bored of sitting on your couch and daydreaming of what life could be like on the other side of the world? Have you always had the desire to climb a tall mountain, hug a dolphin or camp in the Outback of Australia or New Zealand? These are all obtainable by you. You can simply make a choice of what type of adventure you want and go out and do it. It's so much easier than you might imagine.
