If cold weather and loyal dogs is more your ken, dog sledding in the Arctic is the adventure from you. Sled through the arctic gates, formed by the Boreal Mountains and the Frigid Crags , as you spend nine days and nights (the tents are heated), on the trail.

Tetons Riding

Pine forests and lush mountain meadows are the eye candy for those willing the ride through the Tetons on horseback. Stop at Jackson Lake , pick your way delicately along the Buffalo River and you'll soon find yourself wishing you didn't have a car.

Grand Staircase Biking

The Grand Staircase, located on the north rim of the Grand Canyon, is a delicate pink, while the river itself flows below. Mountain bikers get a strenuous workout while enjoying the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon.

Denali Climbing

The highest point in North America is Denali. To reach the top, trekkers spend about three weeks, climbing the west buttress and making camp. "High camp" is the final overnight at a jaw-dropping hit of 17,200 feet but it doesn't end there. One more day of hiking through the snow brings climbers to the true peak at 20,320 feet.

Boundary Waters Canoeing

The Boundary Waters are an area rich in history. Starting from Gunflint, Minnesota, canoers spend six days paddling along the river. Portaging overnight, most visitors will see large numbers of timber wolves, otters, loons, eagles, black bear and moose.

The San Juan Islands are the jewels of Washington's coastal zone and a definite must-do on the list of top 10 adventure vacations. The islands are as yet mostly untouched, providing visitors with the ability to catch a glimpse of bald eagles, orcas, salmon and scoters. You'll never get so close as you will on a kayak.

Gulf Coast Adventure Sailing

The beautiful islands located in the Gulf of Mexico, just off of the coast of Florida's Fort Myers, are the perfect place to try your hand at adventure sailing. Twenty-six foot Commodores are used to skip lightly over the water while sailors drink in the beauty of the Gulf Coast.
