GLENDALE, Calif., July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The senior travel industry appears poised for a boom. In a report from the U.S. Census Bureau, the world population of people 65 and older is on track to double by 2060. And in the next 15 to 20 years, active seniors are expected to exhibit more adventuresome travel tastes than their predecessors.

With that in mind, MySilverAge has created a free, downloadable guide to travel options and trends for seniors. From bus tours to river cruises to adventure excursions, this guide compares destinations and packages that are specially suited to older adults.

Highlights from the guide:

  • Multi-month cycling trips range from $115 to $200 per day (including most meals and accommodations), and take active travelers—from ages 18 to 75—thousands of miles through locales all over the world.
  • Seniors interested in more laid-back adventures may consider art, culture and culinary workshops overseas. These workshops, which are a great way to "develop new interests and enhance skills," can run from one week to 10 days and range from $2,200 to $3,000 per person.
  • Whereas ocean liners can carry thousands of people, river cruises entertain at most 200 to 400 people at a time. It is this intimate setting that encourages socializing and makes it easy to meet new friends.
