Read Articles About Outdoor Adventure on GoNOMAD

Lots of people like to include at least one daring adventure on their vacation, and GoNOMAD has gathered outdoor adventure stories from all over the world. More and more of our reader's trips include either a hike, a paddle, some extreme sports or another way to get some exercise.  Getting outside has become a big part of why we travel. 

Some of our stories are by experienced divers and mountaineers, and some are by intrepid families searching the world for fun and adventure.

All of the stories here share one thing...that spending time outdoors, no matter what you're doing, enriches your trip and so, it's always a part of a trip's agenda. 

Get ready to get active...wherever you're going!
