Adventure Travel Inspiration and How to Find It

All travellers know the feeling, “I want to travel, I want to experience new things and I want to do something completely different to what I am doing now.” The corresponding feeling is usually along the lines of, “But what? Where? And how?”

This is actually made harder with the vast selection of trips currently available, especially to adventure travellers. Below are three ways to make inspiration a little easier for those of you reading with travel on your mind.

Travel Reviews

One of the best ways to find adventure travel inspiration is by reading about other peoples’ experiences. This is easily done by looking at travel reviews. These travel reviews provide an insight, not only into the service and value of adventure travel providers, but also the experiences that people have had. Adventurers are drawn to places of interest, especially ones that not many have been. Never underestimate an adventure traveller’s need for that feeling of exploration.

Travel reviews also provide inspiration through density. For example, the crowds may congregate in Kenya for a Safari or in Peru to hike Machu Picchu, both areas would then receive a high number of reviews. With this knowledge, an adventure traveller can easily pick his or her ideal experience, based on how crowded they want their trip to be.

Adventure News

Read adventure news and updates. One of the most useful sources of inspiration comes from adventure travel industry news. Details of current adventure vacation offers, new destinations available and new activities to try will really get your imagination going. It’s also helpful when you’re on a tight budget – discovering new adventures on your doorstep is the latest travel trend.

How do you find the best deals in the market? Just keep a watchful eye on the best adventure news. Finding fresh adventures is one of the fundamental reasons that the adventure travel market continues to grow (even in spite of economic/political challenges). Travellers are always on the lookout for the next destination or activity and one of the most fruitful sources for inspiration is blogs from explorers and adventures on the cutting edge. New routes through jungles, new epic cycle journeys or a new way to use a helicopter to launch your adventure, these blogs have the answers.

Adventure Travel Market Overview

Finally, finding inspiration can be a simple as looking at the adventure travel market as a whole – what can I do and where?

This might be browsing through an atlas and pointing at the topographic point of interest or looking at a list of adventures on a provider’s site. An easier option still is to utilize some of the powerful adventure travel search sites out there. Simply click on an activity or country and see where or what you can do.

So, if you need adventure travel inspiration remember these three points:

1. Read travel reviews
2. Keep an eye on adventure news and
3. Look out for global adventure travel search sites.

Good luck in discovering your next adventure.

Adventure Travel From Grand Canyon Rafting to Base Jumping

Some people believe a break from work should involve more than just a holiday: it should be an adventure! Which is why adventure travel is becoming so popular. It doesn’t have to mean climbing Everest, attempting K2, or crossing a desert on the back of a camel: but it can, though it can just as easily mean a guided rafting trip in the Grand Canyon, seeing the desert from the basket of a balloon, a bungee jump like James Bond (off Switzerland’s Verzasca Dam) or a road trip somewhere literally *off the beaten track*.

Trekking in Nepal or paddling the Grand Canyon are the classic adventure travel options, and for most adventure travellers involve a bit of travel to get to, but there are travel adventure options in every country — you ‘d be surprised to see the list of where all the best paragliding destinations are, and paragliding definitely qualifies as adventure travel if it’s done right. Ice climbing, cave diving, shark diving, paddling between scenic islands, trekking overland, base jumping, or even heli-biking or heli-skiing can elevate your travels to adventure travels, and these kinds of adventure travel options can be found in some very unlikely destinations.

But the classic adventure options are still the best: New Zealand, for all the cycling and paddling options, as well as the extreme sports, is one of the best places for adventure travel, and Chile and Patagonia are popular for the same kinds of adventure travel attractions. Canada has the winter-y wilderness, and offers adventure travellers the chance to get back to nature and meet some exotic animals, while Borneo and the Galapagos, offer adventure travellers both untouched wilderness, unique animals and sunshine. Just in case you prefer your adventure travels without the adventurous weather.

Not all of us get the chance to have a real travel adventure. However, ‘adventure holidays’ are becoming ever more popular, and accessible, and not just among the young. As baby boomers mature they find they are fitter, and generally richer, than their parents were – so your 50s and 60s is a great time to take that travel adventure you never had time or money to do. Lots of adventure travel is within the realms of possibility for most people — you don’t have to be an elite athlete to cross the Sahara with a camel train, just relatively healthy and the owner of an adventurous spirit. Some adventure travel tour operators even run adventure tour options for younger explorers, and there are some gentle routes along even some of the most exciting of white water rivers, and child size mountains still worth conquering. And while once people thought of some adventure travel options as being the adventure of a life time, now a lifetime can have many travelling adventures.

What is the Aviation Adventure Industry?

When a unique product or service is found to be marketable, it soon goes from being offered by one company to being offered by numerous companies, spawning an “industry”. Often, an industry results from a product or service’s fulfillment of a need; however, industries can also result from products and services that fulfill our wants and dreams, such as our desire for great adventure, an example of which can be seen in the aviation adventure industry.

The aviation adventure industry is composed of companies that offer trained and untrained pilots the opportunity to pilot a real military fighter plane. However, most of the industry’s clientele don’t possess previous flight experience. Yes, that’s right; you don’t even need to possess a pilot’s license to pilot a fighter plane while performing an array of aerobatic flight maneuvers. While this might sound dangerous and illegal, it’s actually quite safe and above board. When you embark your adventure flight, an experienced fighter pilot will fly with you as your copilot. Due to planes’ dual controls, the fighter pilot can take control of the aircraft whenever necessary.

Some companies in the aviation adventure industry specialize in adventure flights. But there are others that draw half of their business from flight adventures and the other half from offering professional pilots extensive safety training. Therefore, if you’re looking for the ultimate confirmation of safety, you can go with a company whose pilots specialize in recovering from a variety of uncontrolled flight patterns. Statistically, there’s a greater chance that you’ll experience ground impact while flying on an airliner than while taking an adventure flight with a trained fighter pilot. Unlike other pilots, fighter pilots are inherently equipped to resolve unusual flight situations on a regular basis.

Most companies in the aviation adventure industry offer two kinds of flight adventures: adventures that simulate air shows and adventures that simulate air combat. When you choose an air show adventure, you’ll perform or have the pilot perform for you the same maneuvers that you see in air shows around the world, including loops, hammerheads, cuban eights, tail slides, torque rolls, accelerated flat spins, outside loops, inverted spins, lomcevaks, knife-edge spins and tumbles. And when you choose a military adventure, you’ll aim a real gun sight at adversary aircraft, firing simulated bullets to the sound of real gunfire. In addition, you can participate in war games while executing a variety of tactical flight maneuvers, including high-speed low altitude flybys.

Aviation adventures appeal to a broad variety of people who have one thing in common: the desire to experience the adventure of a lifetime. To take an adventure flight all you have to prove is that is 6’6″ or shorter, weigh 240 or less pounds and are without serious heath conditions that could be worsened by vigorous flight. If you meet these criteria and you’ve been dreaming of a supreme adventure, the aviation adventure industry is waiting to offer you an adventure that’s literally out of this world.
