Sports & Adventure Tourism

Sports & Adventure Tourism
Sports & adventure tourism is one of the most unique methods of visiting and exploring a vacation destination. Whether you are a novice or are experienced in the sport of choice, testing your limits in a new place can be an exhilarating experience.

Land

Explore new territories on land by going on a bicycle trip through Asia (see Resources) or running a marathon in Chile. Regardless of your athletic level, you can find a land sport that will engage you in your vacation destination.

Air

Explore your vacation destination through a birds-eye view. Kite-surf in Cabarete, Dominican Republic, paraglide the Rockies in Colorado or enjoy a hot-air balloon ride in South Africa.

Trail Expeditions

Spend a few months hiking the Appalachian Trail or Mt. Kilimanjaro for a true endurance test, or spend a few hours bird-watching on local trails in a national park.

Water Sports

Jumping through waterfalls in the Dominican Republic (see Resources) or rafting the Colorado river are methods of testing your physical boundaries while connecting to new ecosystems.

Package Deals

Most adventure & sports companies provide brief training, necessary equipment and knowledge of each ecosystem.
