Want to know where to go for adventure travel in 2018? Climbing Everest is so last year (and pretty difficult, too). Here is a list of perfectly do-able adventures for 2018, whether you're a die-hard thrill-seeker or the kind of traveler who loves seeking out the world's most remote places.

1. Try river cruising

1.jpg


Millions of people sign up for cruises every year, but growing numbers are ditching the world's oceans and opting for a river cruise, instead. And river cruisers getting younger too, thanks in part of a number of cruise lines going all out to target younger passengers. Take river cruising specialist U by Uniworld, which is targeting 21 to 45 year-olds with adrenaline-fueled onshore activities like rock climbing and rafting, while onboard, there'll be DJs, rooftop lounges and yoga classes. If you're new to cruising, start with something short-haul rather than jumping in at the deep end with a Mekong river excursion. Cruises down the Rhine or Danube are just as spectacular and a great way for first timers to dip their toe into the world of river cruising.

2. Chill out on the Cambodian coast

The Thai islands are officially full, which is why people are looking for alternatives to Phuket, Phi Phi and Koh Samui. This is where Cambodia comes in. Set sail for the coastline of this beautiful country in 2018 and you'll discover a spectacular world of lush rainforests, diverse wildlife and some of the friendliest people in the world. If you're wondering where to stay in Cambodia, we recommend heading to Sihanoukville, which has some of the country's largest (but still wonderfully cheap) beach resorts, or to Cambodia's Koh Rong Islands, which are located in the Gulf of Thailand. We also love Kep. Originally known as Kep-sur-Mer, this was a glamorous beach resort for the first half of the twentieth century. It's now one of Cambodia's most popular destinations for backpackers, thanks to a growing number of beach hut resorts. Prices start at around £30 for a night in a two-person beach bungalow.

3. Cycle your way around Singapore

Norwegian's new Gatwick to Singapore flights mean it's now possible to get to Asia's garden city for around £400 (singles start from £150). And it's the perfect time to discover this beautiful destination. The city-state's contract with F1 has just been renewed, making 2018 the ideal time to watch the famous night time street circuit race, and it's now even easier to explore Singapore's green spaces, thanks to two new bike share schemes (OFO and O-bike). The fact that more and more people are exploring the city by bike has convinced the government to create a fantastic new cycling route. The Connector Trail winds between Singapore's many parks. Start by pedaling your way over to Windsor Park, a protected nature reserve where you'll find monkeys, turtles, butterflies and lizards.

4. Visit the Florida Keys' lesser-known islands

4.jpg


Top of your "to do" list for 2018 should be some Floridian island-hopping. Venture beyond tourist meccas such as Key West to islands like Marathon and Islamorada and you'll discover cheaper prices, fewer tourists and deserted beaches straight out of a Bounty advert. The Lower Keys have some of the best wildlife, including the ridiculously cute Key deer. Although accommodation options on these islands are more limited than in other areas of the Florida Keys, there's still something for everyone, including a handful of luxury resorts alongside campsites and independent hotels.

5. Explore the Peruvian Amazon

5.jpg


Last year, British Airways' launched the UK's first direct flights to Peru, and the number of visitors to landmarks like Machu Picchu went through the roof. This beginner's guide to Peru is perfect if you haven't been before. The better news? There are still plenty of ways to get off the beaten track. Some of the best rainforest lodges in Peru can be found in the Tambopata National Park. Although the area's been protected from over-development, you'll still find a range of accommodation options, ranging from luxurious lodges to rustic tree houses high above the treeline. If you're feeling brave, opt to stay at one of the remote research stations - many take a small number of guests, who share their accommodation with the scientists working there. One of our favourites is the Tambopata Research Center, a two-day trip downriver from the jungle town of Puerto Maldonado.

6. Sign up for a vineyard tour in Sonoma (the new Napa Valley)

6.jpg


Head to Sonoma, you'll find over 400 vineyards dotting a spectacular stretch of the Pacific Ocean, along with 50 state and regional parks. And no matter when you head to this beautiful part of the world, there's sure to be an event taking place, whether it's the Sonoma Country Harvest Fair or the region's regular wine and food festivals. Our favorite wineries include BobDog Wines (Sonoma's highest vineyard) and Roche Winery & Vineyards, famous for its Pinot Noir.
