5 Challenging Tours to Push Your Limits in 2020
New year, new you, they say. Well, we agree, and we think the only way to become the best version of you in 2020 is to push your limits and challenge your concept of adventure. Leave the leisurely countryside hikes or city walks for another time and check out these 5 challenging (as per our rating system) tours that will not only leave an impression, but remind you that there is nothing you cannot do if you set your mind to it.
Lake Baikal – Challenging
Lake Baikal is an ancient, massive lake in the mountainous Russian region of Siberia, north of the Mongolian border. It also happens to be the deepest lake in the world. Winter is probably the best time of year to go and discover the spirit of Lake Baikal. The ice can reach 1.5 meters thick, when the lake’s surface is frozen solid and the temperatures are at subzero. At the same time, the air is dry and the skies are surprisingly sunny, making for some of the world’s most unique landscape photography.
Namibia – Challenging
Despite being called ‘Africa for beginners’, don’t be fooled for this tour will still require some endurance as we battle the dry savannah heat. You can discover the wonders of this sparsely populated country which is home to beautiful landscapes and majestic wildlife. Throughout the country, there are unparalleled opportunities to experience its natural wealth, and is a great opportunity to witness for yourself the awesome safari landscape and surreal sand dune views.
South Pole – Challenging
It goes without saying that our most exotic tour also happens to be the most challenging. Not only will you be traveling to one of the least visited parts of the world, you’ll also have to brave the infamous Drake Passage and steel yourself against icy, artic winds and erratic weather. It will be worth it though, in exchange for the chance to see some of the world’s most exotic wildlife in their natural habitat. Think humpback whales, flocks of penguins and seals amidst icebergs that dot the miles of ocean.
