It’s no secret interest in adventure travel is increasing. Peruse your local newstand and you’ll find entire magazines dedicated to the genre (National Geographic Adventure and Outside). Even non-travel related magazines are jumping on the bandwagon. Esquire has a column The Restless Man—Real Adventures for Regular Guys and Men’s Journal has shifted editorial focus to include lifestyle and adventure travel. And for women, Women’s Adventure Magazine (formerly Dandelion) remains strong.
If you’re interested in learning more about the growing world of adventure travel, I suggest attending the Adventure Travel Professional Symposium. Learn what’s new in adventure travel, emerging new trends, and a special interest (women’s, family).
