People mostly travel for fun, but have you ever thought about traveling on your own? Talk to staff and guests at hotels, hostels and the local B & B’s. They all will have a good deal of data on the tour people and rely on them for their livelihood. Make sure you cross reference such evaluations as the proprietors may be financially linked. There are also Internet message boards that concentrate on travel matters that can be helpful. Don’t be afraid to join in the discussions on forums to find out first hand what to expect. Who knows you may be able to link with other adventure travel aficionados and form a bond for more sharing as your adventure travel experience grows. This small list doesn’t even cover all of the other wonder adventures the area of Banff has to offer. If you are doing this trip in 5 days, be prepared to be exhausted!

Ask your travel agent at the time of booking to request a room on the second floor with a king size bed and close to the beach. You won’t necessarily get what you requested, but if you do, you’ll enjoy more evening breezes, fewer ants, more privacy being that you’re on a higher floor, and a shorter walk to the beach. Having only one bed means that you won’t be falling between the twin beds (I’ll tell you that tale another time (smile)).

In the shadow of the Torres del Paine massif, this retreat seemingly disappears into the landscape, a curved wooden structure that echoes the surrounding nature. Inside, you’ll find more wood and a minimalist yet warm atmosphere that doesn’t detract from the incredible views outside.

People choose these companies because they are sensitive to their budget requirements – you can even pay for your trip before you go in installments.
