Adventure Tour

Adventure travel is a type of tourism, involving exploration or travel to remote , exotic and possibly hostile areas. Adventure tourism is rapidly growing in popularity, as tourists seek different kinds of vacations. Adventure tourism gains much of its excitement by allowing its participants to step outside of their comfort zone. Adventure tours for women are the result of a passion for travel and adventure, as well as the belief that life is too short and great experiences should be shared

Today, more and more women want to go on adventure vacations so that they can meet new people and challenge themselves by learning a new skill or activity. They want a vacation that is out of the ordinary. They want to be physically active and venture out on their own, unfettered by the responsibilities of home and work. More women are leaving the men at home. More than 50 percent of adventure travelers are women and most fall between ages 41 and 60. Adventure tours for women have really picked up.

What is adventure travel and who should go?

In an adventure tour, all participants should understand that these trips are adventure travel vacations and not just regular tours. There will be plenty of activities in which one has to actively participate. We have Activity ratings for each of our trips, such as Easy, Moderate, High and Challenging. . This means that you won't be surprised by the level of activity on your chosen adventure, and you can get into shape accordingly. Adventure vacations, by nature, also require that participants be relatively self-sufficient, flexible, and able to accept travel situations as they exist, accepting that things may not always happen exactly as one would prefer or expect. The constraints of group traveling also necessitate that each of us be understanding of and sensitive to others who are sharing your trip experience.

Benefits of Adventure Travel for Women

One of the greatest benefits for any person who wants to go for adventure travel is the satisfaction of knowing that she was able to withstand all of the challenges. This is specially important for women, who, for centuries, have suffered societal relegation imposed by men. Many women who take adventure travel trips speak of the sense of "empowerment" these exploits provide to them.

Adventure tours for women draw participants who range in age from 35 to 65 years. For the younger women it may seem perfectly normally to go for an Everest Base Camp or camping in an isolated region of Ladakh but their older counterparts may have been waiting most of their lives to seize these kinds of opportunities.

More than 70% of those who buy women adventure travel package repeat their experience. Once they get a taste for these difficult situations and find out they can "keep up," the lure of the next adventure is almost overwhelming.

These are few of our proposed tours. We will undertake more tours when FEV members suggest other interesting places of their choice.
