Upon seeing it listed on our Sports Vacation page in the past, some have asked what is a “Multisport Adventure?” Given that Travel N Relax plans to offer more of these exciting vacation experiences in the future, we felt it would be of value to offer some explanation here on what specifically this term means. Let’s start with the term “adventure.” An adventure isn’t necessarily something that sends adrenaline coursing through your veins. One is just as likely to find and experience an adventure visiting the ancient Anasazi ruins in the American Southwest, watching a local artisan practice an age-old craft in a village in Oaxaca, or sipping a glass of local wine in a chateau in France’s Loire Valley. Therefore, an adventure is anything that gets you going, gives you a taste of the local flavor and makes you look at the world a little differently. “Multisport” is where the action is: hiking, biking, rafting, horseback riding, climbing, kayaking. Any activities that take you off the beaten path and let you experience a destination in the most exciting and impressive way possible. It’s picking your way by ice axe to the top of the Athabasca Glacier in the Canadian Rockies;riding horseback high into Montana’s Absaroka Mountains;paddling Costa Rica’s Pacuare River or breezing along Brittany’s beautiful coastline by bike. The beauty of a “multisport” adventure isn’t just in the action however, it’s the fact that whatever your interests or abilities, you’re bound to find an activity (or three) that satisfies your craving for fun! In summation, “Multisport Adventures” are an experience that can combine fitness, fun and often a sense of eco-consciousness! They are, in fact, a vacation experience like none other!
