Adventure Travel Specialists


Adventure travel specialists develop, plan, and lead people on tours of places and activities that are unfamiliar to them. Most adventure travel trips involve physical participation and/or a form of environmental education. A whitewater rafting trip, a mountain climbing expedition, or a safari are just some examples of adventure travel. Organized adventure travel has grown rapidly in popularity over the past few decades. Adventure travel specialists are also known as adventure outfitters, adventure travel guides, adventure travel planners, ecotourism specialists, and trip planners.
