Best Adventure Trips 2008

by Sarah Tuff

Some adventurers say that peanut butter and jelly tastes like filet mignon at 14,000 feet, but we'd rather have the steak itself, thank you. And while we're at it, a nice glass of red at the bottom of the mountain is nice, too. Ah, the outfitted-adventure life, where you can explore the most remote corners of the earth—but never have to go without good food, a clean place to sleep, and somebody to lend a helping hand or strong back. This year, the world's top guiding services have dreamed up new trips to suit every taste, from two-wheeling across Argentina to tracking gorillas in Gabon or trekking in Tibet (pictured). Look at it as the easy way to handle hard trips.

(Needless to say, such pleasures have their price. Please note that the pricing cited for each trip may depend upon a required minimum number of guests.)
