The United States has been revealed as the best country for adventure holidays offering an incredibly large range of opportunities to experience the great outdoors. The US is home to 162 volcanoes, 69 of the longest waterfalls in the world, and 63 stunning national parks, including the world-famous Grand Canyon National Park and Yellowstone National Park.

In second place is Mexico, which has 67 national parks and over 400 ascents. Mexico is also home to cenotes – stunning hidden swimming pools that the ancient Mayans believed to be portals that allowed you to speak with gods. The water inside Cenotes is so clear you can see straight through it like glass. Underwater photographers will be thrilled with the clear waters these hidden cenotes have on offer.

Japan comes in third place, with lots on offer for keen adventurers. The country has 122 jaw-dropping volcanoes, including the famous Mount Fuji. Outside the dazzling lights of Tokyo, sacred mountain trails, tropical coastlines, coral reefs, and the Japanese Alps can be found. You could even find yourself trekking the outdoors with a living Buddha or visiting monks in an ancient monastery.
