  • The most beautiful hiking trails in the world

    Here’s the reason why there are so many incredible hiking trails in the world: our planet is pretty big (for us, at least), and not all people who claim to like hiking actually go hiking (otherwise there might be actual traffic jams on hiking trails).

    That leaves us with expanses of magnificently rugged and challenging terrain through which daring travelers have forged paths in their search of beautiful vistas and healthy outdoor exercise. Some trails are difficult and technical, while others are easy enough that you have ample time to admire the surrounding scenery. So here are some of the most beautiful hiking trails in the world.

  • The best rock climbing destinations in the world

    Rock climbing can be a very rewarding and incredibly exciting hobby, provided that you are not afraid of heights, and you have some good muscles for clinging precariously on hundred foot tall rock walls and dangling into huge drops. If you are one of those people who likes to live on the edge, you should give rock climbing a chance, especially since it is one of those extreme sports that give you ample opportunity to visit some of the most interesting places on the planet.

    The wealth of mountains, canyons and other jutting or dropping forms of relief that we can find all over the globe, there is no shortage of walls to climb on, and here are some of the best rock climbing destinations in the world.

    In many countries this is the hottest summer in a long time, so it’s no surprise that people are flocking to the mountains and any other place where the temperature is slightly lower than in the plains. While many people try to cool off at the beach or a poolside, if you want to bask in fresh and cool air, you should head to the mountains.

    There are plenty of resort towns in mountainous areas where you can breathe in the refreshing air and stop worrying all the time about sunburn and heat strokes. So if you want to spend some time in a heat-free haven, here are the top 5 cool mountain towns for summer where you can hide in the shade, hike, paddle, or bike.

  • The scariest bike trails in the world

    Mountain biking is so different from regular biking that you could even say that there is nothing in common between the two except for the fact that both are done using bicycles. But even the bikes used for mountain biking are vastly different from your usual bikes.

    That the trails should be different is no surprise – while regular bikers will content themselves with a tour of the park, mountain bikers actively seek out the most dangerous and rugged terrain they can find.

    There is no shortage of terrifying mountain bike trails in the world, and some of these can be quite dangerous and fit only for experienced bikers, while others simply look dangerous. And here’s a list of some of the scariest bike trails in the world.

  • The coolest monuments in the US

    photo by premieroctobre

    Monuments are usually things that nobody really looks at unless they are a tourist, and of course, unless they are particularly spectacular. Looking at an ordinary obelisk that commemorates a historical event is not everyone’s cup of tea, especially if you’re not particularly passionate about history.

    But then there’s another type of monuments, the kind that will make you stare in wonder and go ‘wow’. And the US has plenty of these, fortunately! Some of them are more well known than the other, but they all have one thing in common: they are simply cool. So here are some of the coolest monuments in the US.

  • Fun Easter destinations: Five Ski Resorts That Rock

    In the last post I was suggesting some less conventional ways to spend Easter, among which I also included toe possibility to go for a short ski vacation. Fortunately, the Rockies are still tucked under a  thick layer of snow, so, no matter whether you prefer the slopes of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado or California, you will be able to ski in the same perfect conditions (and even get some nice tan). An impromptu ski vacation won’t give you too much trouble if you have the necessary equipment and a  spacious four wheel vehicle. In case you need to take the plane, it might get a little pricier (tickets have a tendency to get really expensive near Easter).

    However, in terms of skiing, April is far out of the peak season, so accommodation and equipment rental rates will have significantly reduced. Based on some recent snow reports and also on the amount of fun they are likely to provide, here are the most recommended USA ski resorts for the Easter break:
