About Active Adventure Tours

Hiking Peru's Inca Trail...scuba diving in Belize...climbing the highest peak in Southeast Asia...surfing in Costa Rica...if any or all of these adrenaline-charged activities appeal to you, consider making adventure travel part of your next vacation.

Outdoor activities -- whether it's trekking, biking, hiking, boating or camping -- add an exciting element to travel. For every tourist who simply wants to lie on a beach, tour museums, go shopping or eat their way through a country, there are many travelers who wouldn't dream of giving up exercise while on the road. With an adventure tour, not only are you enjoying the great fresh air in the outdoors while exercising your body, you're making some pretty incredible memories with your traveling companions, too. After all, imagine the stories you'll be able to tell after you conquer the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro or conquer your fear of small spaces after caving in Central America!

Adventure tours typically take participants off the beaten path. Because activities are usually based in remote locations, you'll learn so much about local culture and customs on an adventure tour. Operators that specialize in adventure travel offer itineraries that have been honed over several years, and tour leaders and local outfitters have their clients' safety in mind at all times.

When you choose an adventure-filled itinerary, take note of the skill and ability levels that the tour operator recommends. While some adventure tours might welcome novices of the sport, many do require some level of fitness. You certainly don't want to show up in a foreign country unprepared to trek across mountains for several miles a day! Make sure you read and re-read the itinerary carefully, so you know exactly what you'll be doing each day -- and confirm that you're game for the type of accommodations (sometimes rustic) and meals (sometimes basic) that you're paying for. If you're physically and mentally prepared for adventure travel, this type of vacation can be incredibly rewarding.
