Adventure tourism is a form of travel or exploration that includes activities such as caving, climbing, cycling, hiking, hunting, and rafting. These activities involve a certain amount of risk for the duration of the travel. Adventure tourism is a rapidly expanding industry as it consists of cultural exchange, physical activities, and connecting with nature in exotic destinations, isolated locations and out-of-the-comfort-zone destinations. These activities are carried out under the supervision of specialists and include necessary safety precautions such as helmets, harnesses, and other equipment. In addition to this, adventure tourism offers effective and economic incentives that enhance bio-cultural diversity while creating financial benefits for local and private industries.
