Vacations That Make You a Better Man: From wine tasting, to jungle survival and adventure sports

VACATIONS THAT MAKE YOU A BETTER MAN

From wine tasting, to jungle survival and adventure sports; here are some travel suggestions for the modern man

Vacation days are a precious commodity and although some men might be happy to squander them laying on a beach, here are some travel suggestions aimed at increasing knowledge, physical prowess and even helping to make the world a better place. 

Pump Up The Pedal Pressure

Forget the Lycra, dressed from head to toe in protective gear; downhill mountain bikers are the gladiators of the two-wheel world. EnjoyWhistler.com offers a package including mountainside accommodation, a bike lesson on Whistler Mountain, and then a trip to the Scandinave Spa so you too can feel like you faced the arena – and won. For more information visit www.EnjoyWhistler.com

Me Tarzan: Jungle Survival Training

Be the knight in shining armour, rather than the paper pusher behind him. Leave the desk job behind and embark on a trip to the jungle. Learn expert survival training whilst helping to protect stunning habitat and cultural landmarks in places like Belize, Borneo, and the Himalayas. For more information visit www.GoVoluntouring.com

Brain vs. Braun: Intellectual Summer Camp

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could drop a line about cloning genes into your usual chat-up repertoire? Or perhaps a little something on geology, or the human quest for truth? Head to Quest University Canada for a week-long adult intellectual summer camp and you’ll certainly learn something to liven up the conversation. For more information visit www.QuestU.com

Into the Wild: Whitewater Rafting and Fishing

You know you’re a man when you can jump off a cliff called the “Devil’s Elbow”. Part of Sunwolf’s “Elaho River Expedition”, their full-day summer whitewater rafting trip includes conquering grade five rapids and a dip in the glacial waters if you’re brave enough to face the Devil’s Elbow drop. If you visit during the colder months the rivers teem with steelhead trout just begging to be reeled in. For more information visit www.Sunwolf.net

Learning the Lingo: Give and Surf          

Learn how to surf and brush up on your Spanish in Bocas del Toro, Panama while you help the local community. Get a tan, learn the lingo and catch some waves whilst assisting in the day-to-day running of a preschool for the local children. For more information visit www.GoVoluntouring.com

Cool Combination: Savvy Skier and Wine Aficionado

Kill two birds with one stone at Big White Ski Resort, based in the heart of Canadian wine country. Learn to navigate your way around not only the slopes but also the wine list with their “Groomers and Grapes Package”, which includes a tour of the local wineries. With 700cm of powdery snow, 118 runs to explore and a 60ft manmade ice tower to clamber up, who doesn’t like a man who can handle the cold? For more information visit www.BigWhite.com

Manmade Impact: Heal The World

Adventure philanthropy can take you all over the world, whether you want to help build an orphanage in Guatemala, install solar panels in Nicaragua or help with a water treatment system in Malaysia.
