Luxury is a completely subjective experience. What one may find absolutely heavenly may be excruciating for another, and only you can decide. However, just to get away from the typical luxury hotel experience, we thought we’d show you some of the other options out there. Here’s where you can put yourself to the test, see things most mere mortals never get to, spend your time outdoors, and just generally have a ball getting in touch with your inner adventurer. Our suggestions for the adrenaline seeker extraordinaire:
