Dog Sledding in Lapland Finland
Lapland, located in the northernmost part of Finland, is a region of enchanting beauty known for its snowy landscapes, the dance of the northern lights, and a unique cultural heritage rooted in the Arctic environment. What is the best way to experience this world? On a dog sled!
Picture yourself bundled up in warm, traditional Sami clothing, standing at the helm of your very own dog sled team. The crisp Arctic air fills your lungs as you ride through snow-laden forests, frozen lakes, and beneath the northern sky! You can learn from expert guides about your new canine companions and the trails to showcase the region.
Hot Air Ballooning over Cappadocia, Turkey
Cappadocia is characterized by its lunar-like terrain and fairy chimneys, offering a backdrop that seems plucked straight from a fantasy novel! The best way to fully appreciate and see the stunning landscape is from a hot air balloon basket, where you’ll drift above the mesmerizing valleys and rocky outcrops that nature has sculpted over centuries.
While you can visit many times during the year, it is always best to visit Cappadocia during the Balloon Festival. Each year, the festival attracts visitors who will simultaneously see over 160 hot air balloons filling the skies. You can also enjoy many other events in the area, like shows, music, and food trucks, for the days surrounding the festival.
Sandboarding in the Atacama Desert, Chile
The Atacama Desert is dubbed the driest desert on Earth, with a surreal expanse of vast dunes and otherworldly landscapes. The sun-baked terrain creates the perfect setting for an exhilarating sandboarding adventure!
Visitors to the Atacama Desert can experience the thrill of sandboarding in various ways. Many tour operators in the region offer sandboarding excursions, providing participants with the necessary equipment, including sandboards and safety gear. The boards used for sandboarding are similar to snowboards, but they are especially designed for gliding on sand.
