Adventure Tourism

Adventure tourism is a niche area of the hospitality and tourism industry that involves travel to remote, or unexpected areas. This area of tourism is growing as people are becoming more interested in having a unique and exciting travel experience.

New Zealand is a great adventure tourism destination for travellers with a love of the outdoors and a sense of adventure. Many of the adventure tourism activities available in New Zealand make use of our natural scenery and the environment. For example, white water rafting, caving, bungy jumping and diving.

Several New Zealand tertiary institutions offer tourism qualifications that specialise in this niche industry. Qualifications are split into two areas – Adventure Tourism and Adventure Tourism Management.
