Multisport Adventure: Adventure vacations with more than one option

Multisport adventure vacations offer you the opportunity to do more than one activity. Some women choose a multisport adventure because they love hiking, but horseback riding, sea kayaking, or visiting wineries are also appealing. Other women want to explore one destination, such as Alaska, and want to see it from every possible perspective. Still other women want to do something they love and also try something completely new, or are coming with someone whose interests are different. If any of these describe you, a multisport adventure vacation may be just what you're looking for.
