6 of the Hottest Adventure Destinations for 2018

As each new year begins the travel media is always full of suggestions and offers about the newest and hottest destinations which to visit in the following 12 months. The leading publication in the adventure tourism industry Adventure Travel Magazine just published its list of the hottest destinations for 2018 and we are happy to offer you our own tours in some of the listed destinations:

1. Sazan Island, Albania – opens to tourists for the first time in 2018

Albania’s former secret military base was once home to over 3,000 troops and built to withstand a nuclear attack. With its abandoned buildings, underground tunnels and concrete bunkers, the island is a rich part of Albania’s history and was once an isolated and unreachable spot.

2. Mighty Cotopaxi – stand on one of the furthest points from the centre of the Earth in Ecuador

Having been closed since 2015 , on 20 October 2017 the Ministry for Tourism in Ecuador announced that the summit of Cotopaxi (one of the world’s highest active volcanoes at 5,897m) is declared safe and open for climbing.

3. Valley of the Marvels, France – set to get UNESCO status in 2018

At the heart of the Maritime Alps, the remote and undiscovered Parc National du Mercantour covers seven valleys and 28 “perched” villages. In the Vallee des Merveilles you will find 40,000 mysterious ancient petroglyphs dating back to the Bronze Age illustrating weapons, cattle and human figures – the largest concentration in the whole of Europe.

4. Bhutan – for entry-level trekking on the Royal Orchid Trail to ‘The Last Shangri-la’.

A Himalayan kingdom where traditional Buddhist culture is carefully welcoming limited numbers of travellers. From one of the hardest treks in the world, The Snowman Trek, to some newly introduced easier treks for 2018, one of which follows the beautiful Royal Orchid trail in the rarely visited Eastern realm of an already isolated realm. The area is known as ‘The Last Shangri-la’ on account of its isolation and sheer beauty. In this region, live the rare and beautiful black-necked cranes.

5. Greenland – has never been more accessible for 2018

With the rise of low cost flights across the UK to Reykjavik, Iceland is already very popular. What’s especially exciting however, is that the proliferation of routes has suddenly made Greenland so much more accessible. Just hop across from Reykjavik and these ice-filled fjords of this spectacular continent are attracting visitors who want some truly unique trekking away from the crowds.

6. Sri Lanka – will welcome a record number of adventurers for 2018

Sri Lanka has been left off itineraries due years of uncertainty but it burst back on the scene in 2017 and next year is set beat traveler numbers again. A small gem of an island, it hosts an abundance of absolutely everything – ancient Buddhist ruins, rain-forested peaks, spectacular colonial trains, vibrant green tea plantations, a cuisine bursting with flavor and many, many elephants.
