7 Perfect Places for an Adventure Holidays 

The Antarctic Circle, adventure

The Antarctic Circle

The Antarctic Circle

The Antarctic Circle is one of the five major circles (or parallels) of latitude that mark maps of the Earth and it is amongst the least travelled places on the planet. The Antarctic Circle is the perfect place to start your overseas adventure travel. Every place south of the Antarctic Circle experiences a period of twenty-four hours’ continuous daylight at least once per year, and a period of twenty-four hours’ continuous night time at least once per year. That is to say, there is at least one whole day during which the sun does not set, and at least one whole day during which the sun does not rise. So you can have a 24hours day or night. For nature lovers, this is particularly brilliant with some beautiful and unique wildlife and some truly breathtaking sights. Penguins, seals, whales and albatrosses can all be spotted during your trip.

Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu ”Old Peak” is a pre-Columbian 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level. It is one of the most beautiful ancient sites in the world. Clinging to the steep hillside, and surrounded by jungle covered mountains, it’s no wonder this site took quite so long to find.
