Who can take you rafting through the Grand Canyon, stopping for hikes in fern glens along the way? Would you rather take the kids on a milder river trip and show them outlaw hideouts and dinosaur tracks? This company offers these trips and more on the Colorado, the Salmon, the Green and other western rivers.

I loved jet boating in Shotover Gorge and crawling into ice caves when skiing down the Tasman Glacier. Friends tell me that bungy jumping off a bridge in Queenstown and biking on New Zealand's national cycling trail are just as much fun. Here's a collection of the top 10 Adventures in New Zealand that I've gathered from folks who live in this country.

Some of the most fascinating locales in the world are on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list.
A lot of travelers wrap vacations around visiting at least one, and often several, World Heritage Sites in a country. If you don't want to do the planning, many of these adventure travel companies already have vacations that include visits to see animals that only live in the Galapagos Islands to the Great Wall of China.

The multisport trips with this company include a mix of activities, from rock climbing and mountain biking to caving, ATV riding and whitewater rafting. The company also has a novel pricing option for several of its vacations. On certain multisport trips in the United States you can set your price, after the hard costs of the trip have been met.
