5 Best Fall Destinations for Adventurous Travelers

Whether you’ve decided to fly, drive or take a train to your destination, travelling in the fall is one of the best decisions you could ever make! The weather is pleasant, the hot summer days are over, the tourists have returned to their homes and the prices are back to normal. That’s why fall is the perfect time for travelling, especially if you’re an adventurer, and all you need is a passport and your backpack. So, if you’re thinking about going to an exotic place, but aren’t sure where, here are five suggestions that might turn into the best trip of your life.

Dubai

This is one of the most exciting and most beautiful places in the world, and, luckily, not as popular with tourists as you’d thought it would be. That’s why it’s perfect for a nice fall trip, packed with adventurous activities perfect for all adrenaline junkies out there. Whether you like hiking, cycling or horse riding, on the one hand, or kayaking, sailing and even skiing – yes, skiing in Dubai! – on the other, this place has it all. The best thing about Dubai is that you can do whatever you want because there are so many facilities and places that offer various activities that will keep you going and make you come back to this amazing place next fall as well.

Sarajevo

Hidden in the middle of the Balkans, this place is a true gem for all those adventure seekers who consider the trip to be a part of the adventure as well. This isn’t that obvious if you’re flying in, but if you take a car, be prepared to go up and down mountains for hours! The driver could get bored, to be honest, yet the passengers will enjoy the view and the scenery that’s simply breathtaking. Sarajevo is perfect for a weekend escape and you can easily find enough different activities to keep you going from Friday to Sunday. Checking out local sights, learning about the turbulent history, visiting nearby places and descending from a local hill in an amazing cable car is something you’ll never forget.

Sydney

No matter where you live, you’ve probably heard of the Sydney Opera House and the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, but have you heard of other cool spots scattered all around this amazing city? Probably not because there are too many things to see and do, and you can’t finish them all at once. That’s why people keep coming back to Sydney and having new adventures every time they come. One of the things you should definitely check out is the world-famous whiskey distillery that produces and serves some of the best whiskey you’ve ever tasted. So, make a detailed plan, decide what you want to do, and plunge right into this wonderful Australian city, but do remember to have a whiskey or two in the process.

Nepal

Now, this is the spot for real adventurers – it’s far away, it’s wild, it’s inaccessible, and it’s amazing! You can’t act like a tourist in Nepal and this place will bring out your adventurous side, especially if you opt for the most adventurous activities. From a motorbike tour and skydiving to trekking around the Annapurna Circuit and visiting Mount Everest – no matter how daring you are, you’ll love it here. What’s even better is that you’ll always be surrounded by amazing scenery and some of the most wonderful mountains you’ve ever seen in your life, so your level of excitement will never drop.

Peru

Finally, this is an idea for the bravest and most daring – and if you consider yourself to be one of these, it’s an offer you mustn’t miss. Going on an Inca trail trek around Peru is an adventure of a lifetime and, no matter what else you do this fall, a week you spend there is something you’ll never forget. This trek is more than 25 miles long and takes your through all elements of the South American continent – from jungles and forests to mountains, tunnels and amazing rivers. Finally, you’ll end your journey in Machu Picchu and discover this ancient city of the Incas, getting a chance to learn more about this mysterious civilization. You’ll go up and down the mountains, truly pushing your boundaries and discovering new strength you never knew you had, and you’ll enjoy every second of it.

All of these five fall destinations are going to take you out of your comfort zone and throw you in the middle of an unknown territory, forcing you to think outside the box and use all your practical skills, both in the city and the wilderness. Moreover, they’re going to show you how amazing the world around you is, inspiring you to take such adventurous trips more often – at least two or three times a year!
