Pamela,

If you and your son like the great outdoors, it is hard to beat British Columbia and Alberta. Gorgeous scenery. Lots of wildlife too. Looking at a bear or moose up close will definitely get your heart racing.

My recommendation for a great adventure trip is heli-hiking in Canada followed by exploration of the area around Banff and Jasper National Parks. I have not heli-hiked myself, but it is on my short list for sometime soon. The company that I am looking at is Canadian Mountain Holidays - http://www.cmhhike.com/

Alternatively, you could combine river rafting on the American River in Northern California with a trip to Yosemite.

Wherever you end up, have a great time!
