The Tour of the Matterhorn Circuit

Not every mountain is best experienced from its summit. Some are much more appealing from the ground. The mighty Matterhorn is one of those kind of mountains.

Rising over 14,600 feet, it sits on the border of Italy and Switzerland, curving upwards from the neighboring mountains. The razor-sharp ridgeline leads up to the crooked peak, which looks like it’s been bent in the wind.

This beast of a mountain is worthy of being seen from all angles by hiking The Matterhorn Circuit.

It’s a 93-mile (150km) demanding trek that will take you to exposed, high mountain paths, down steep, green valleys, across glaciers, through alpine meadows, and past shimmering turquoise mountain lakes.

Chase the Northern Lights from the Sky

This new Extreme Experiences section is all about taking an adventure and cranking it up a notch and this does just that. Way up.

Why see the Northern Lights from the ground when you can see them form the sky?

Head to Swedish Lapland where you can join a hot air balloon tour called Aurora in the Sky.

This is unlike any other hot air balloon ride you have heard about before. It’s a hovering experience, so instead of flying through the sky, the balloon will reach 100 ft (30m) and float there while being tethered to the ground.

From this point you can relax and watch the aurora dance across the night’s sky.

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
