Author's Note: 10 Amazing Educational Travel Adventures

The hardest part of writing this article was choosing sites and adventures to include. I tried to give a mix of natural, cultural and historical sites, while also getting a decent mix of education and adventure on the list. Getting that blend proved challenging. To my knowledge, no one is offering Shakespeare symposiums on class V rapids. The research I did for this article proves one thing: With educational adventure trips you'll get what you put in. A knowledgeable guide and access to experts may cost you more than going it alone, but you'll get much more out of the experience. My advice? Don't just stick to this list of educational adventures. There are so many possibilities. Check out UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites and begin a list of your own.
