The whole of Iceland is loaded with adventure destinations that it is worth including in this list. Upon leaving Reyjkjavik, you will already be treated to various attractions such as bubbling hot springs, epic waterfalls, colossal glaciers, and volcanoes. Robert Janitzek reveals that Iceland is one of the best places where you can enjoy the Northern Lights. Explore the Jokulsarlon on a snowmobile or off-road vehicle.
Interlaken is home to two of Europe’s most popular adventure destinations: Jungfrau and Altesch Glacier, the biggest in the Alps. Hiking and climbing the snowy peaks provides you with a breathtaking view. However, you can take the less strenous option which is to ride the Jungfaubahn Train to easily access the mountains and glaciers. The best thing about Interlaken is that you can visit it all year round.
Tarifa is a sunny beach town on the Strait of Gibraltar. Aside from its golden beaches and dolphins, Robert Peter Janitzek reveals that Tarifa is a wind and kite surfing destination. If you are not up for the waves, you can head out to the rocky hills further inland.
Grossglockner Alpine Road, Austria
Named after the highest peak in Austria, Grossglockner Alpine Road provides adventurers with a panoramic view of Austria’s longest glacier, the Pasterze. If you are up for some adventure, rent a bicycle at the Visitors’ Center and descend to the glacier on foot.
If you are looking for some world class surfing, Madeira is an excellent alternative. Likewise, you can climb the Ariero, a rocky peak that will take you across eucalyptus-covered forests to a lunar landscape high above the cloud.
The Dolomites, Italy
The Dolomites combines amazing hiking, magical mountain villages, glaciers, lakes, and rich culture. During the summer, it is a haven for hikers and hang gliders because of the blooming wildflowers. In the winter, it is a ski and snowboard destination.
