Not all vacations are created equal. Some include a busy program of activities during the day, while others are passive and offer rest and relaxation. For the adventurous traveler, resorts offer a wide range of activities designed to add excitement to your vacation. From truffle hunting in the south of France to Olympic bobsledding, these experiences are ideal for anyone looking for an adventurous holiday.
