Are you seeking an exciting opportunity in the ever-growing industry of Adventure Tourism?
Adventure tourism is about connecting with a new culture or a new landscape and being physically active at the same time. It is not necessarily about being risky or pushing your boundaries however this is sometimes the case. Of course, it is especially important to know and respect your limits while you are in an unfamiliar area.
Adventure Tourism is a term that is not easily defined. For one thing, different people will have different ideas about what is “adventure”. For one person, “adventure” may be something as simple as camping outside in a tent, or walking through a wilderness area for an hour. For another, this would be considered passive tourism or exercise, whereas adventure would mean participating in dangerous and physically (also maybe emotionally) challenging activities, such as climbing a sheer rock face or white water rafting in dangerous rapids. Traditionally, adventure tourism has been perceived to be a younger person’s activity. In recent years, however, older people are keen to enjoy new experiences once their children have left home.
A career in adventure tourism is exciting and rewarding and one that is in high demand as it is clear that adventure tourism has no distinct boundaries, leaving people at a loss as to where to start their planning from such an experience.
