EpicThrills.com offers discount travels to global adventure tours

Members can get up to 30% off trips that may involve cycling, skiing or white-water rafting.

August 07, 2011

Need an adrenaline rush? Here's a website for travelers who want more out of their getaways than just a posh room or a glittering pool.

Name: EpicThrills.com

What it does: Brings global adventure tours to the popular members-only flash-sale market. Get your free membership, and then browse weekly deals at up to 30% off, with a seven- to 14-day window of opportunity.

What's hot: Offers exciting travel options for those who want an extra helping of adrenaline. Previous trips have included an 11-day cycling pilgrimage across Nepal, heli-skiing in Alaska and white-water rafting in Patagonia. I appreciated the itineraries so you can see if your daydreams match reality.

What's not: Make sure you read the fine print for each deal. On the Five-Night Surfing Camp in Costa Rica I found the price based on double occupancy — not ideal for freewheeling adventure junkies who go solo.
