Abstract

Tourism is one of the forms of use of the time available for leisure and recreation. Appears as a phenomenon of the period we live and work together in social and economic environment, with various forms of manifestation and development. Adventure travel is associated with the fact that tourist can discover new things. Therefore, they travel the world to be so large that it knows the existence of other people, to discover continents, people customs. Adventure tourism has grown rapidly in recent years as outdoor recreation has become increasingly commercialized. The actual commercial products offered by adventure tourism operators do not seem to have been subject to any coherent and comprehensive review. This paper aims to explore this form of tourism as a vector in tourism development, especially in natural areas and not only.
