Adventure holidays have become increasingly popular in recent years and are now seen as a great alternative to your typical beach break. Examples include Africa overland tours which utilize specially converted overland trucks where travellers camp in tents and prepare their own meals to Peru tours on local transport where travellers can take the Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu, the famous "Lost City of the Incas."

So what are adventure holidays? For many people, the term implies jumping out of aeroplanes, bungee jumping or white water rafting; however, these are more associated with activities you can do during an adventure holiday. Adventure holidays generally must have three main elements: get you away from your comfort zone, travel overseas to a far-off land and meet local people to see how they live their daily lives. There is a range of different ways you can do this depending on the type of transport and accommodation you prefer, like Discovery Tours using private transport and comfort hotels, Adventure Tours using public transport and basic hotels, Overland Expeditions using overland trucks and staying in campsites and hotels, Budget Expeditions using overland trucks and staying in campsites and hostels, Independent Travel using varied transport and staying in a choice of hotels or Expedition Cruises where you sleep onboard the ship or boat depending where you are visiting. Check out http://www.tucantravel.com/travel-styles to see how they all work.
So who travels on adventure holidays? Well, they tend to satisfy a broad range of ages and nationalities, and Tucan Travel attracts clients from students through to professionals and retired couples. Many people travel on their own as the beauty of adventure holidays is that everyone has similar interests and you get to meet a bunch of like-minded people who often become lifelong friends. http://www.tucantravel.com/about-us/adventure-holidays
