Paris, France (July 6, 2010)— City-Discovery.com, provider of tours, travel experiences, and ground transportation worldwide, announced its summer selection of over 200 outdoor activities aimed at consumers searching for affordable vacations far from the hustle and bustle of big cities. With this selection, City Discovery emphasizes a variety of fun things to do, from rafting to trekking and rock climbing, in 80 destinations.
These ideas for outdoor adventures are listed on the travel website, with search features allowing for easy sorting of activities into bestsellers, destinations, new tours, and special deals. The outdoor adventures can also be sorted according to their availability on selected dates. Booking takes less than a minute to accomplish.
Featured in the selection is rafting, available in cities such as Bali, Bogota, Chiang Mai, Las Vegas, Panama City, Recife, and Waitomo. One option is the Elephant Riding and Bamboo Rafting, which takes guests into a jungle environment outside Chiang Mai for a demonstration of trained elephants at work logging, followed by bamboo rafting along the Mae Ping River to the raft station. The Colorado River Raft Tour, White Water Rafting in Costa Rica's Pacuare River and The Chagres Challenge are also offered.
As for hikingoptions, the site offers activities such as the South Coast and Thorsmork tour, which begins with a drive over the mountain Hellisheidi towards Selfoss, followed by a visit to Seljalandsfoss waterfall and a walk into the rugged gorge of Stakkholtsgja. The tour's main attraction is Thor's Woodland, a nature reserve shielded on three sides by glaciers and mountains. Other hiking options are Mt. Rainier Tour, Prison Island in Zanzibar, and Seven Sisters Falls – Health Walk Experience.
Trekkingis also one of the site's most popular outdoor activities. In Cape Town, Half Day Trekking and Hiking on the Table Mountain Range takes visitors away from the "softie" route (cable car), and along a more adventurous route. Other trekking tours include 4 Days Trekking Chiangmai – Chiang Rai and Horse Riding in Tuscany.
Another favorite is rock climbing. An excellent example is the Rockclimbing Activity Tour, which involves climbing Suesca's famous rocks, one of the most popular places for rock climbing in Colombia. The activity also comes with a professional instructor, who will guide the travelers through the different routes. Alternatives such as the Black Abyss Tour and Korea Explorer are also well worth a look.
