Power your own adventure
Original post: Another World Adventures
When you power your own adventure, the romance of the journey comes with a sense of achievement that is unparalleled.
You can run, cycle, hike and kayak your way around the world; powered by your passion for adventure!
Run through the lava fields of Iceland, hike across the mountain ranges of Afghanistan, or cycle through the tea plantations of Sri Lanka. Powering your own adventure is a slower, more flexible method of travelling that is good for body, mind and soul. From the tired muscles to the slower pace; there is more romance in a journey where you can take the time to savour the moment.
Here are a few of our favourite adventures that will get your muscles pumping!
