Why Private Adventure Trips Are Booming
By Everett Potter
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we need to self-select and maintain our own pod or bubble as much as we can. That’s especially true with adventure travel. Instead of traveling with strangers, why not travel with people that you know?
For those who can afford it, the world of private adventure trips is a no-brainer. Most private departures are coming from the boutique tour operators who already offer a scheduled roster of group trips. It could be biking in Tuscany, walking in Provence or spending a week snorkeling and whale watching in the Sea of Cortez. Or perhaps a summer trip rafting in the West or exploring the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland?
