Women Travelers Cause Adventure Tour Operators To Reconsider The Meaning Of "Adventure"

Adventure travel isn't just for adrenalin-crazed men, according to a recent Adventure Travel Industry Survey. The survey, by the Adventure Travel Trade Association, finds that over half of adventure travelers are women.

Long thought to be the domain of adrenalin-junkies and 30-something men, adventure travel is actually dominated by women, according to the Adventure Travel Industry Survey recently released by the Adventure Travel Trade Association. According to the survey, a surprising 52% of adventure travelers are women.

So what does this mean for the adventure travel industry? "We're constantly evolving," says Karen Cleary, tour manager for Boundless Journeys (www.boundlessjourneys.com), a Vermont-based operator of small-group adventure trips. "People ― women and men ― are seeking meaningful experiences when they travel." With Boundless Journeys, the "adventure" might be a remote 5-day trek to Machu Picchu, or it could be meeting the scientists of the Serengeti Lion Project. The rare opportunity to witness one of Bhutan's lively festivals is an adventure for some, while others immerse themselves in nature ― literally ― swimming with stingless jellyfish in Palau.

Boundless Journeys offers 30 worldwide itineraries that will appeal to anyone who is reasonably fit and has an adventurous spirit. Here are a few that are available in the coming months:

Iceland: The Land of Fire and Ice; June 17-24, 8 days, $4595 per person. Discover spectacular hiking trails and scenic waterways in a land where the primeval forces of volcanoes and glaciers rule.
