The 10 Best Countries for Outdoor Adventure Travel

Posted by One Comment

For some travelers, getting outdoors and into nature is the only real way to experience a country.

Whether you’re hiking, rock climbing, mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, biking, whitewater rafting, hang gliding, snorkeling or doing whatever it is you enjoy, there are few things better than surrounding yourself with beautiful outdoor scenery and getting your blood pumping by doing physical activities.

If you’re planning on doing these kinds of outdoor activities whilst traveling, it’s imperative that you travel to the right places, as some countries are better setup for outdoor adventure travel than others (due to the nature of their terrain and outdoor conditions). recently published an article outlining the top 10 countries/regions for outdoor adventure travel.

Rock Climbing

Here is the top 10 list:

  1. Australia
  2. Nepal
  3. South Africa
  4. Switzerland
  5. New Zealand
  6. British Columbia (Canada)
  7. Madagascar
  8. Norway
  9. Costa Rica
  10. Patagonia (Argentina & Chile)

While it’s no surprise to see some of the big hitters on this list (such as Australia and New Zealand), there are some more surprising entries (such as Madagascar and Norway).

    I’m so happy to see that British Columbia is on this list. It definitely is a world-class place for outdoor activities. I recently visited and the hotels there even offer packages depending on what activites you’ll be doing there. I went skiing and whale watching, and I stayed with because they offered me not only a cheaper rate, they also helped facilitate my adventures! Glad to see this list – I’ll have to make it out to some of the warmer spots now :)
