Mayan Running Adventure
Described as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, Atitlán in Guatemala is the deepest in Central America, ringed by three volcanoes and 12 villages. The six-day Mayan Running Adventure (from $1,995) begins in historic Antigua and then heads to the shores of the picturesque 50-square-mile lake. Keeping pace at five to 16 miles a day, you’ll explore the hilly surroundings with 360-degree views of the region, kayak on the lake, take a zip-line tour, climb the Sand Pedro volcano, and be treated to a one-hour massage.
During the eight-day Top of the South Island tour with Running Wild (from $2,364), you’ll touch ground in three of New Zealand’s national parks in addition to forests and beaches. The trip begins with a water taxi ride and a run overlooking the sound. You’ll enjoy 252 acres of Nelson Lakes National Park, which encompasses the northern most part of the Southern Alps, and run around the mountain lake of Lake Rotoiti, ending back at sea level along the Abel Tasman Coast Track. Expect white sand beaches, estuaries, and fur seals.
