What is Adventure Travel?

Compared to other forms of travel, adventure travel is defined as being a type of tourism that involves one or more of the following things:

  • Physical challenging activities (usually outdoors in nature)
  • A cultural exchange and/or
  • Travel to a remote or exotic location

It’s all about connecting with new cultures or landscapes, and being physically active at the same time. You may also be involved in an activity that requires significant effort or involves some degree of risk, real or perceived.

For example:

  • Mountaineering
  • Trekking 
  • Bungee Jumping
  • Skydiving
  • Mountain Biking
  • Cycling
  • Canoeing
  • Scuba Diving
  • White Water Rafting
  • Kayaking
  • Paragliding
  • Zip-lining
  • Hiking
  • Canyoneering
  • Sandboarding
  • Caving
  • Rock Climbing & Abseiling

The Benefits of Adventure Travel

The demand for Adventure Travel has risen over the past decade due to more travellers wanting to travel in a way that allows them to:

get off the beaten track

Be more eco-friendly

Give back to local communities

Adventure travel is less about looking pretty or photoshopping incredible photos.

Sure you can do that, but it’s ultimately about exploring the world as it is, experiencing new cultures and exposing yourself to new adventures that test your limits and help you discover your true self throughout the journey.

In my opinion, adventure travel has the power to change your life.

Who is Adventure Travel For?

The great thing about Adventure Travel, is that it doesn’t discriminate. 

Anyone can be an adventurous traveller, whether you’re young, old, a nature nut or an adrenaline junkie seeking your next rush.

There’s always plenty of activities you can do all around the world no matter your interests or physical capabilities.

There are some “softer” forms of adventure travel (Eg. activities seen as having less risk and intensity), whereas others are more extreme (eg. skydiving) requiring you to step outside of your comfort zone and take on an element of risk.
