Ever jumped from a mountain? Rafted through a waterfall? Drank water from a river or camped on a snow mountain? If not, then you really haven't seen anything at all. Here are our top 10 picks for your next adventure

1) Deception Island in Antarctica is an active volcano. The rust coloured boilers were used to extract whale oil by explorers, and today it is an important research site as well as a popular tourist spot. 

Majestic icebergs are a common sight in Antarctica. Three-quarters of this particular iceberg is underwater and what we see here is just a quarter of it.

2) The idea of luxury in the Scandinavian countries is quite different. Being one with nature, sustainable living, and literally being able to drink water directly from the river is considered aspirational.

Lapland in the north of Sweden is as pristine as they come. A popular activity is building your own raft and drifting along the river. In the summer months, the region experiences 24 hours of sunlight.

3) Cloudraker Skybridge in Whistler offers stunning views all around. At 7,200 feet above sea level, this suspension bridge is one of the largest ones in North America. Whistler is a renowned ski destination in this part.

Surrounded by the famed Rocky Mountains, Lake Moraine is one of the most photographed destinations in Canada.

We have all heard the quote “travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”. I know it’s cliched, but cliches are often true

5) Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina, which is expanding out into Lago Argentino has given scientists around the world much to ponder about. Hiking on this glacier in the gorgeous Patagonia region of Argentina was a dream come true.
