You know those motivational posters...

The ones with an inspirational quote and a photo of someone scaling a mountain...

Yeah, we always liked that picture of you.

Cross things off your bucket list with Furtenbach Adventures, an Austria-based tour operator that’s leading ski trips down remote peaks and expeditions up “eight-thousanders” (those would be mountains over 8,000 meters), now booking.

First, see the slideshow. Then, consider your options. You’ve got lots. But really, it all boils down to this.

1) Let them make the big decisions.
They’re offering plenty of preplanned trips, so you can trek through the Kingdom of Bhutan. Or embark on a ski tour of the Tian Shan Mountains and sleep in a yurt. Or try the 58-day Mount Everest expedition if you’ve got 58 days to kill.

2) Choose your own adventure.
They’ll accommodate pretty much anything you can think of. So if you think of a guided hunting trip in the high mountains: sure. If you’d rather take a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the Alps while drinking schnapps-spiked cocoa on your way to a secluded mountain cottage: that’s also possible.

Specific, but possible.
