When people hear the term Adventure Tours, many definitions and death defying images can come to mind. What people don’t realize is that this category of tourism has a very diverse definition. Long gone are the days when you had to make the choice between hiking to the top of Everest or retreating to an all-inclusive resort to eat and drink your way through your vacation. As travelers get more adventurous in their destinations (and more experienced at traveling) this new demand is being answered by tour operators. Welcome to small group adventure travel.
Small group adventure travel is a style of travel that has been around for a while, but for many is still a new concept. Group travel doesn't mean you have to be in a herd of 40-100 people getting on and off the bus at all the usual tourist sites. In fact, it is the total opposite. It is an exciting way to explore a new country in a fun, safe, and organized way. These tours usually include accommodation, in-country transport, local guides, some food, and a choice of activities. They are built to stay flexible so that you can choose your activities and book them when you arrive. This kind of travel is not only affordable, it allows for the best part of travel - spontaneity. These tours are for everyone, there is no age requirement or limit. They also don’t discriminate against the solo traveler by charging a single supplement (although it is an option if that is what you prefer). Small group travel is for people that are flexible, adventurous, and looking to get off the beaten path.
Sourcing travel guides, accommodation and transportation locally ensures an authentic experience no matter the destination. By keeping travel groups to an average size of 10 people, you will never feel you are being herded through the streets like a tourist – instead, small group travel is like being shown around by an expat friend.
