Adventure Travel

Adventure tour operators often bring you into contact with people outside the world of tourism. As such it is important that their philosophy is to tread lightly and respect the local community, wherever it may be. They should also put something back -buying their supplies locally, engaging local helpers and using locally run accommodation.
