There are plenty of underrated adventure destinations in the U.S. and other parts of the world – some still in Europe – that are worth your time. Many are ideal for exhilarating quests ranging from exploring a lesser-known corner of the planet or going on a unique expedition.

Traveling to places that have not yet been valued for their full potential has a few advantages – fewer crowds, cheaper prices and the bragging rights of discovering new places.

You are facing a plethora of options. How many people do you know who have traveled to Siberia on a train or have surfed in Oman?

If you want to go on a thrilling vacation but not spend a fortune, consider Eastern Europe, an island in Croatia or Cambodia. They are known among locals for ideal windsurfing conditions, untouched beaches, wild animal encounters and a rich ancient history.
