Adventure Holidays

If you're adventurous you could organise adventure holidays and establish an exciting business taking customers to exotic countries where they can indulge in river rafting, mountain trekking, rock climbing and so on.

Another idea is to offer quests in search of mythic creatures such as Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster, incorporating other activities into the package.

A trip to Scotland in search of Nessie may involve water skiing or mountain climbing, while a holiday in search of the Holy Grail could take enthusiastic holiday makers to historic sites associated with King Arthur.

Ads placed in the Travel Section of the weekend national newspapers are an effective way to market special interest holidays such as this. You could also advertise in fantasy magazines or via the Internet.

Your prices will have to cover travel, hire of equipment, food, accommodation, insurance and any entrance fees to historical sites, museums, etc., but specialised holiday packages are generally more expensive than the standard two weeks in Ibiza.

For the extra cost your clients would be getting a holiday of a lifetime which offered exciting pursuits as well as interesting and informative excursions.
