WANT TO BE ON TOP OF EVEREST WITH THESE GUYS? How about wreck-diving in the Pacific, whitewater rafting in Patagonia, Belize diving, or skiing at the South Pole? We chose the world's 50 best outfitters, then asked them about their coolest, newest, most thrilling trips. Here's your ticket to the experience of a lifetime.
SLICKROCK ADVENTURES It's an odd name for a company that does sea kayak Belize trips. Never mind: At their 13-acre private island kayakers, snorkelers, and divers explore one of the world's richest ecosystems. This is one of the premier kayaking trips in Central America.
CLASSIC TRIP The Belize Adventure Week takes in 14 activities off-shore and on the mainland, including five miles of underground whitewater rafting ($2,195). 800-390-5715 or slickrock.com.
