Rafting the Amazing Osumi Canyon in Corovoda Albania
The canyon of river Osumi is one of the most spectacular natural attractions of Albania.

During this period, a number of high waterfalls give the canyon a dream-like charm."

Zhangye Danxia Landform China
With its various reds, yellows, and greens, the oft-photographed Zhangye Danxia landform is known as the eye candy of Zhangye, China.

Diving the SS President Coolidge Vanuatu
When she was christened by the widow of her namesake in 1931, the President Coolidge was as opulent as any pleasure ship plying the world’s waters, with an elegant smoking lounge, a shopping arcade, even its own stock exchange. A decade later the Coolidge was converted to an Army transport ship to help with the war effort; she was bringing reinforcements to American troops in the South Pacific when she struck a mine and sank off the coast of Vanuatu. Penetration is superb, and skilled divers can explore the engine room and dining room, or drift along the promenade deck. The largest and most accessible wreck of the Second World War, the Coolidge is in a class of her own."

Valdez serves as base for five of the seven heli-ski outfits that work the Chugach, but only Points North takes off from Cordova. Its clients gain nearly exclusive access to a 2,000-square-mile (5,180-square-kilometer) chunk of mountains, then retreat to the Points North Orca Adventure Lodge, a converted cannery."

Adolphe Bridge Luxembourg
Adolphe Bridge has become an unofficial national symbol of sorts, representing Luxembourg's independence, and has become one of Luxembourg City's main tourist attractions. The bridge was designed by Paul Séjourné, a Frenchman, and Paul Rodange, a Luxembourger, and was built between 1900 and 1903.
