When you think of travel, you typically think of packing your bags and hopping on a plane. Once you land, cars and sometimes trains are probably the most common ways of getting around. But if you have a sense of adventure, there are so many more unique modes of transportation to try around the world. So forget the typical planes, trains and automobiles you’re used to! On these Vantage Travel excursions, you’ll experience something far more exciting.

    I think you can add husky rides. In the Northern countries of Europe they are very common. I remember 5 years a go in Norway we took a ride across a frozen lake. It was an amazing experience.
