Outside Gives Us 20 Great Trips For 2010!

Just because we're three full months into 2010 doesn't mean that we still can't make a "Best of" for the year. That's exactly what Outside Magazine did when they put together there selection for the Best Adventure Trips for this year.

The article explains that they sorted through 763 new adventures to boil their list down do the ones that they chose. The idea was to find the overall best active vacations for the Outside readers, and since the economy remains in the tank, keeping them affordable was also a high priority. The results are some truly spectacular trips that will surely add a few items to your life list.

Some of the adventures that they recommend include sailing on a catamaran off the coast of Thailand, going in search of the elusive snow leopard in the Himalaya, and mountain biking for 600 miles through New Zealand backcountry. There is a little something for everyone here, whether you want a very challenging and busy adventure or something a bit more relaxed, but still amazingly original.

Personally, I'll recommend the Everest Trek that visits both sides of the mountain that is guided by legendary filmmaker David Breashears. Talk about an amazing opportunity!

Thanks for this info. Catamaran is our favorite and they have great services. We engaged with catamaran in our last tour and had a pleasurable time.

Best Regards,

That picture is funny, I was going to comment: "What's Obi-Wan Kenobi doing on vacation?"

But Outside also made the link to Star Wars with this statement:

Morocco's Tatooine look-alike Atlas Mountains

If I were a betting man, I'd wager $100 that Star Wars director George Lucas or someone on the crew was inspired by the robe that Berber guy is wearing, and used it in the movie. The Jawas, the Sand People, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan, and probably some other characters all wore them! I know they filmed a lot of the desert scenes in Morocco.

Morocco seems interesting though....

Glimpsing a snow leopards would be fantastic. Last winter I got followed by a jaguar for a kilometer on a trail near Iguazu Falls. Now I'm hooked on the big cats and want to see them all!

Agreed Mark. I'd love to see a snow leopard. They're the most elusive of all the big cats, making them even more unique.

Agreed Mark. I'd love to see a snow leopard.

As usual, I don't need to be faster than the snow leopard, I just need to be faster than my traveling companions. ;)

The purpose of the travel trip is to accomplish a major shift from the current travel behavior that utilizes the personal car as the principal means of transportation towards more sustainable transportation modes, thereby ensuring substantial energy savings, considerable reduction of emanations and extensive cost savings.
