2) Kenai Peninsula Multisport Adventure Tour in Alaska
Want to see Alaska up close and personal? Backroads Multisport Adventure Tour will show it to you while you cycle, hike, kayak, raft and camp.
MoneyCrashers.com cautioned that this trip isn’t for the faint of heart. There are no spa services or comfy beds. So plan to rough it.
What you do get are meals, campsites, bikes, kayaks and expert leaders to keep you safe while traversing the Alaskan wilderness.
3) Trail Running in Dolomites, Italy
See the Italian mountains in a whole new way. Imagine running in the gorgeous landscape during the day and enjoy phenomenal food every evening on a Holimites Tour.
You’ll experience 10,000-foot spires, rollicking trails and cushy huts within solid running distance.
4) Ski Camp in Alta, Utah
The Alta Lodge Women's Ski Camp is for intermediate and advanced skiers. Challenge yourself, improve your techniques, and meet new ski buddies for three days of instruction and four nights of lodging and meals. Instructors come from the Alf Engen Ski School.
5) Ride Camp in Mallorca, Spain
Trek Travel’s Mallorca Ride Camp makes it easy.
