If you are bored of the same old places, fed up of spending your vacation on the beach or lying next to the pool, there are some exotic destinations for adventure travelers that will really test you.2

These trips and destinations are rarely for the faint of heart, and let’s be honest, you probably need to be able to afford dropping a few thousand dollars for the experience too.

These destinations for adventure travelers do however promise the trip of lifetime.

1. Amazon Rainforest – South America

Imagine being in close contact with 438,000 plant types and about 90,790 tonnes of plants in a single square kilometer – and that’s just what is currently known.

There’s just so much to see.

Few destinations for adventure travel are better than the Amazon Rainforest – it is also one of the most accessible on this list.

It’s exciting crossing rivers filled with poison frogs, electric eels and piranhas.

Then there’s the gorgeous cougar, jaguar and anaconda lurking about.

You have to be alert because there’s an element of risk, just what an adventure traveler craves.

Vaccinations against diseases like malaria and dengue fever is essential.

2. The Mariana Trench – Pacific Ocean

Some places for travel adventures are very pricey but I can dream.

On my ‘wish list’ is a trip to the deepest spot in the Pacific Ocean.

It’s a trench 10,9111 km down.

Seriously, imagine travelling that distance underwater – awesome!

The last manned expedition was in 2012 by James Cameron, the filmmaker.

In total, there have only been two other manned descents.

Virgin Oceanic and Triton Submarines are arranging future descents.

3. The Central Range – Papua New Guinea

Exotic destinations for adventure travelers off the beaten track are getting harder to find.

If you want to explore breathtaking mountains and river valleys with endangered and unique animals and birds, The Central Range on an island covered in rainforest is perfect.

You can explore an extinct volcano, a crater lake and many mountain peaks.

One that stands out is the magnificent Mount Wilhelm.

A natural wonder is perpetual snow seen on the Maoke Mountains (14,635 feet high).
