The american based Outside Magazine have once again had their annual Travel Awards where new and adventurous destinations are put on the map. In their own words they call it ’42 new destinations we guarantee will change your life’.

Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands,

The best new trend has been identified as ‘Epic Bike rides’. As examples of places where this activity can be pursued they mention White Horse in the Yukon territory. Indeed North america offers some great an epic bike rides but perhaps the list could also include destinations such as the Munda Biddi Trail, Western Australia and/or the trip from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Besides pointing at Kununurra, Australia as best adventure hub and the Karakorum chain as best mountain destination they also point at Greenland as one of the destinations that is getting increasingly more popular. Indeed Greenland is an exciting and very unique destination and it will be interesting to follow how polar tourism develops up there.
