From Dog Sled Taxi Services to Extensive African Tours

Many excursions are planned around specific destinations, activities and landmarks, but these animal travel tours are centered around seeing lots of wildlife.

Some of the most extreme tours include Norway's Kirkenes Snowhotel offering transportation by a sleigh led by eight husky dogs or Ultimate Africa Trip offered by G Adventures that spans eight countries in Africa over the course of more than 50 days. Travelers who are looking for the ultimate hands-on experience with wildlife will jump at the chance to take part in the 'You Catch, We Cook' hunting trip from Viceroy Snowmass and the Aspen Outfitting Company.

Since partaking in these adventures requires travel to an animal's natural habitat, these daring excursions offer a rare chance to see animals thriving in their own environments.
