What should we do with 4-5 weeks of vacation time?

My wife and I get an extended vacation every fall. We enjoy immersive experiences, more adventure/escapism than volunteering. In past years we have gone surfing and hiking in Nicaragua and Costa Rica, camping/sailing in Panama and Columbia, a Southwest US camping road trip, the usual in Thailand, and last year (for our honeymoon) we did Delhi to Shanghai overland via Nepal and Tibet. During our vacations we really enjoyed mini adventures like a 6-day hike in Columbia, a week long float down the Rio San Juan in Nicaragua, a float down the Mekong on rice barges, a week long hike in the Himalayas, etc.
The debate is half the fun, so any good recommendations, mefis?
