The weather is getting warmer and for some it feels like summer is just around the corner. For the adventurous ones out there, the summer might mean backpacking across Europe, white water rafting in Alaska or snorkeling in Belize. Visit the online site for REI Adventures, to plan an unforgettable trip, gain outdoorsy knowledge such as how to choose the right tent or what to bring when partaking in a triathlon, or buy the equipment you need for your next adventure.

The site certainly shines in its surplus of information. This extremely thorough website compiles a huge list of travel opportunities organized by both region and activity that can be booked right online, advice from experts about the great outdoors and how to make the most your experiences and gear useful for the excursions discussed on the site available for purchase directly from the site. While the information is all useful and relevant, since there is so much of it, the site is a little bit difficult to sift through. It is great, however, for those who are searching for something specific.

The resources are diverse, and appeal to those who have never set foot on a mountain as well as the expert cycler, climber or hiker. The site also links to the company’s Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr pages for maximum communication between the company and its audience.
