Adventure / Multi-Sport Vacations:

An example of a multi-sport vacation might be one where every day you do one or more sports activities, appreciating the beauty of the area accessible by your sport at the same time. One trip I did included: mtn biking, hiking, canyoneering, rock-climbing and white-water rafting in Utah (Moab area).
