If you like taking trips that involve activities with a certain amount of risk, you may enjoy what has become known in the industry as adventure travel. Mountain climbing, deep sea diving, hang gliding and white water rafting all fall under this heading, as do many other extreme sports and pursuits. An entire industry has sprung up based around traveling that offers something to those who have a taste for adventure, or want something active or exhilarating, and many companies offer this type of vacation. If you partake, you may find you have to sign some sort of waiver, and the cost of travel insurance may also be higher because of the increased risks. Trips are available to almost every country in the world, especially those considered offbeat or exotic, and are aimed at participants with different skill levels and differing budgets.
