Off-the-Beaten Path Destinations to Explore

If you are looking for unique and undiscovered travel destinations in the second largest continent in the world, Gabon is one of them. With 195 countries across the globe, there are tons of places to go lost in and experience some big adventures. There are not too many places in the world that you can visit four countries on one trip and not drive more than a few dozen miles.

If you are slightly bolder, places such as Iran and Pakistan are also accessible, as long as you follow proper safety precautions. There are many amazing places in the world you can visit that are not your typical backpacker destinations. You know, the ones packed with destinations everyone visits, firmly in the tourist path. Secondly, there are a lot of awesome destinations out there that few people ever consider exploring.

To be honest, there are still heaps of undiscovered vacation destinations (or, at the very least, half-discovered) and undiscovered travel attractions all over the world waiting for your eager adventurous eyes. In this post, we teamed up with some of our travel blogging friends, all of whom share the same love for traveling the undiscovered road, to bring you the best countries to visit for some adventure-filled excitement. Whether it is one of our small-group adventures, or our flagship custom-made travel experiences, we would love to catch up and chat with you about taking off the beaten path in the years ahead. Getting off the beaten track is a great way to really experience a country that you are exploring.

One of the points that I really wanted to make in this post is that you can go off the tourist trail everywhere, so long as you have some entertainment backup in the form of platforms like to keep you engaged during what will likely be some lulls in your exploration. For some additional assistance, here’s a bit of information about finding things to do at off-the-beaten-track destinations.

The truth is, terms such as “off-the-beaten-path” or “off-the-beaten-path” are subjective for every traveler.

El Salvador takes some doing, but those that do are greatly rewarded by being among the best places off-the-beaten-path. Very much a destination that is not on the tourist radar, this young European country offers plenty of worthwhile experiences on a road trip.

Pakistan receives only limited numbers of tourists every year, and is certainly one of the more off the beaten track destinations that I have visited. With a population of just 25,000 tourists (approx) per year, visiting Christmas Island is truly an off the beaten path destination.

 While capital cities are rarely considered as an off the beaten path destination, Dili, the capital city of the tiny island country of Timor-Leste (East Timor), is a town that is rarely included in anyone’s itinerary, despite Dili’s proximity to other highly popular destinations in Southeast Asia, as well as its daily flights connecting it with Bali.

Visitors are starting to show up, but there are still not many…Timor-Leste is difficult to get to, costly, and has very limited infrastructure, which is why less than 100,000 visit every year, making Timor-Leste one of the best destinations to go “off the beaten path.
