Hollister Hills SVRA (Hollister, California)

Hollister Hills SVRA (Hollister, California)

Hollister Hills SVRA (State Vehicular Recreation Area) has 24 miles of trails, including a man-made obstacle course that features a mud bog, which attracts big crowds on the weekends. Located in the mountains dividing the city of Hollister from the Salinas Valley, many of the routes at this off-road course are impassable when wet -- and always a challenge. 960 1280

Moab, Utah

Moab, Utah

Moab in Southeastern Utah, is an iconic off-roading destination in the US. The terrain has been a battleground for off-roaders, mountain bikers, hikers and rafters -- so much so that some trails have been fully or partially closed to off-road vehicles. However, there’s plenty of space for 4x4 trucks and other modified off-road rigs. Guided trail tours and Jeep rentals are available in the area. State resident or non-resident Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) permits are required. 960 1280

The Cliffs Insane Terrain Off-Road Park (Marseilles, Illinois)

The Cliffs Insane Terrain Off-Road Park (Marseilles, Illinois)

Looking for muddy fun? Head to Marseilles, IL, where off-road enthusiasts converge on The Cliffs Insane Terrain Off-Road Park. This heavily wooded park features large fields, creeks and 1 treacherous mud hole -- you’ll have to ask park personnel where it is. Just a few words of wisdom: Watch out for deep holes disguised as easy mud puddles. 960 1280

Whipsaw Trail (South-Central British Columbia)

Whipsaw Trail (South-Central British Columbia)

Close to Coalmont, Princeton, in British Columbia, the Whipsaw Trail should be on your list to visit between July and August, when the rainfall is lowest. Winner of the BFGoodrich Outstanding Trails award, this trail is an active mining and logging road, so watch out for traffic! Some areas of the trail are challenging and may require a winch and tow strap if your 4x4 or rig gets stuck. 960 1280

Located north of Alto, TX, this park -- open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week -- welcomes owners of ORV (off-road vehicles), ATVs and motorcycles. 960 1280

Azusa Canyon (Azusa, California)

Azusa Canyon (Azusa, California)

This is the only state-owned-and-operated mud mecca in Southern California. Fed by the San Gabriel River, the bogs here are deep with silt from the surrounding San Gabriel Mountains, making it a perfect spot for mudding. In order to get in, your rig should be legal to drive on the street. 960 1280

The Mounds ORV Area (Mt. Morris, Michigan)

Located in Mt. Morris, MI (near Flint, MI), The Mounds is a large complex with soft, sandy soil and small- to medium-sized ponds scattered throughout the park. High horsepower isn’t recommended; rig with 33-inch mud tires and waterproofed electronics will suffice. 960 1280

Las Cruces, New Mexico

Las Cruces, New Mexico

Off-roading is so big in Las Cruces, NM, that there’s a club, the Las Cruces Four Wheel Drive Club. We recommend attending the Annual Chile Challenge Off-Road Trail Event that is usually scheduled during the last week in February. Although there isn’t a competition, participants follow an experienced trial leader to complete a challenging run over significant obstacles. 960 1280

Truck Night at Yankee Lake (Brookfield, Ohio)

Truck Night at Yankee Lake (Brookfield, Ohio)

Prepare to go off-roading in some of the most challenging bogs in the US. In Brookfield, OH, Truck Night at Yankee Lake attracts huge crowds who want to watch high-horsepower trucks compete in gritty mud pits with fun activities like the rock crawl, log climb, car crush and tug o' war. Truck Night is on Friday nights from May through September. We recommend off-roading fans check out the season opener event, Trucks Gone Wild. 960 1280

Tanzania, Africa

Tanzania, Africa

One of the things I like most about hosting the Amazing Race is that we get to share new places with our audience. The Ngorongoro Crater is an awe-inspiring sight. This extinct volcano caldera is about 12 miles wide and descends 2,000 feet from the edge of the crater. This has created a unique ecosystem where you will see an abundance of wildlife making it one of the world’s 7 natural wonders of Africa. 960 1280

Lalibela, Ethiopia

Lalibela, Ethiopia

Our visit to Ethiopia was a surprise for many of us. I had no idea how lush the mountain regions were. Lalibela felt like a set from Indiana Jones. This holy city is famous for its underground church which dates back to the 12th century. 960 1280

Seychelles

Seychelles

The fact that the Seychelles was a hideaway for pirates tells you that it is a remote destination. I grew up on the Tropical Island of Antigua; so, I have a real love for beaches, and Seychelles has some of the best. With more than 115 Islands to choose from, travelers have no problem getting away from everyone and everything. 960 1280

Jaipur, India

Jaipur, India

This is a great place. We first visited India in Season 1, and there is a reason we keep going back. It’s so exotic and different from anything in America. We have had some of our best moments there. A personal favorite for me is the city of Jaipur which is the capital of Rajasthan. Also, it’s known as the “Pink City” for obvious reasons. India says century overload to me and the people are so inviting. 960 1280

Coober Pedy, Australia

Coober Pedy, Australia

I first visited Coober Pedy about 20 years ago and it has remained etched in my mind ever since. I took the show here in Season 2, and got the teams to play speed golf as they ran in the extreme heat and on the barren landscape. There is no grass at the course so players had to carry their own patch of artificial grass. Trust me - you will never forget a visit to the “Opal Capital of the World.” 960 1280

Punta Arenas, Argentina

Punta Arenas, Argentina

I first heard about Argentina from my dad who did a lot of agricultural consulting work in this country. He often talked about the southern city of Punta Arenas, which is located between the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans -- right at the bottom of the world. This place has amazing, picturesque views. It’s almost like you’re flicking through a pictorial travel book. 960 1280

Mongolia

Mongolia

I spent my 40th birthday standing on top of a hill looking out over the vast expansive Mongolia waiting for teams to arrive at the pit stop. This is a country where sheep outnumber people 35 to 1, and there are less than 2 people per square mile. Nomadic people move from place-to-place and live in yurts. If you visit, expect to be invited in. The people are very warm and friendly. 960 1280

Lofoten Islands, Norway

Lofoten Islands, Norway

I found out recently that I am a descendant of the Vikings. This of course has made it all the more interesting for me to visit a traditional long house where Viking enthusiasts bring history back to life. The people there are filled with passion and you can’t help to be blown away by the breathtaking fjords. 960 1280

Oman

Oman

The great thing about having Amazing Race entertain so many people around the world is that we can show the good things that are happening in different countries, rather than what is going wrong when there is terrible news. Visiting a Middle Eastern country like Oman provides unique insight to a culture that most people never get to see in a positive light. 960 1280

Anchorage, Alaska

Anchorage, Alaska

Anchorage, AK, is a gateway to America’s last frontier. After a short float plane ride you can find yourself completely immersed in pristine wilderness. Whether you’re interested in hunting, photography, bird watching or simply relaxing, this is America’s best nature getaway. 960 1280
