Adventure and nature vacations

For you, nature is a playground. Cliffs are great for hiking and for telling legends. Jungles are just as beautiful when you soar above them as when you simply get lost in them. You like swimming in lakes, especially if they hide mythical creatures (yes, you, Loch Ness Monster). And if you’ve already stopped reading this because you’re off paragliding in the jungles somewhere, then that confirms it: you are an adventure and nature lover.

Read on to find out where you can hike it, dive off it or plunge into it in the South, Europe and Canada.
