Camping with the Alaskan Brown Bears

At the Great Alaska International Adventure Vacations Bear Camp, you can observe wild brown bears from a quiet meadow, or on a platform 15 feet above the bears’ feeding ground.  It isn’t unusual to see up to 20 of these half-ton bears from your Bear Camp camping site.

Hiking Washington’s Glacier Peak

If you happen to be walking the Pacific Crest Trail, challenge yourself with a hike up this mountain.  To reach the peak, it takes 5 miles of walking along the White Chuck River Trail and then it’s only another 10,000 feet up the Sitkum Glacier.

Bodysurfing The Wedge in California

Newport Beach, California isn’t just any other tourist destination.  Sure, it has its fair share of beach resorts, boutique shops, and a great nightlife, but The Wedge is the main attraction for thrill-seekers.  During Pacific storm cycles, waves at this beach can reach as high as 30 feet.  They’re too steep for surfers but perfect for the ultimate man-versus-nature contest: bodysurfing.

Exploring Florida’s Fresh-Water Caves

The northwestern corner of Florida hides a beautiful secret: adventurous fresh-water diving sites.  The Devil’s cave system is one of the most intricate underwater cave systems in the state.  Claustrophobes beware: some of the cave’s tightest swim-throughs require you to remove your air tank to squeeze through.  Now that’s extreme!
