If you read this blog regularly you know we’re always talking about different trends in travel. You also might know that we want you to combine your own travel style with those trends. Your travel style is made up of personal “bottom lines” you have when you travel. Meaning what you absolutely have to have!
Maybe in the summer you like a little low brow glamping, and in the winter you like a chalet on the slopes. Either way, you have opinions and desires. For the sake of discussion, let us say that you want adventure but you are filled with anxiety when you consider the adventure opportunities that literally risk your life.
It is still possible for you to have wildly uncharacteristic escapades. Promise. Maybe you don’t want to drop out of planes or go deep free diving. If this is you, then what you want is something called “Soft Adventure.” What’s that? These are activities that are still generally considered safe by most people but aren’t necessarily what you would do every day!
You might be surprised, but it is the type of travel that most people are booking. With all the press regarding adventure travel, many people are still looking for adventure without the death defying stunts. And we’d all like to be saying we’re going adventuring… but perhaps not risk our lives!
Would you like to go on a safari, then attend a cultural event in a small village and go kayaking the next morning? Yes, please. This is adventurous to be sure, because it sounds interesting and exciting. That is one of the definitions of adventure; to have an exciting or remarkable experience.
Soft adventure is an all ages proposition, and very often it includes unique destinations you may not have considered like Madagascar, Malta, or Montenegro. Consider combining your soft adventures into an immersive travel experience. This is where you stay somewhere for a longer period, possibly learn the language, meet people, become a part of things… but also allow Black Label Travel to book you some soft adventure activities nearby to keep things surprising and remind you that it’s a vacation!
If you book a soft adventure trip with Black Label Travel, we can customize your vacation to include hiking, diving, river rafting, biking, kayaking or surfing by day. Then you might like to experience wildlife viewing by night or maybe a daily cooking lesson instead. You can specify your soft adventure based on your level of physical prowess and risk-taking drive! Let Black Label Travel do the rest.
