Over 50s Embrace Adventure Travel

seniors hiking on an adventure holiday

 

If you ask most people what kind of vacation their parents of grandparents prefer they’d probably say a cruise or a sedate, relaxing getaway sipping cocktails by the pool.

That’s changing.

A study of of 1,200 holidaymakers over the age of 50, discovered that a growing number of people seek something challenging, with more than half choosing far-flung adventure-packed breaks such as hiking to the ancient city of Macchu Picchu in Peru or backpacking across America.

YOLO

What’s driving this phenomenon?  Over 50s who are off on adventures subscribe to the idea that You Only Live Once.(YOLO)  And they’re determined to get every last experience in while they can.

Here are some adventure ideas from the AARP:

Bungee Jumping

California’s Bridge to Nowhere, 40 miles outside L.A., is a popular jump site run by Bungee America, the oldest operator in the United States. The bridge soars across the San Gabriel River, spanning rocky canyon walls.

Dune Buggying

Rent a fat-tire dune buggy at South Padre Island, Texas, for an afternoon of sand crawling. Or hit the sun-baked desert outside Las Vegas with Sun Buggy Fun Rentals.

Canoeing the Lewis and Clark Trail
This is an excellent senior adventure that includes flat water canoeing, comfortable camping, moderate hiking and stunning White Cliffs scenery.  Follow the Lewis and Clark Expedition along Montana’s Missouri River. Lewis and Clark paddled these very waters on their historic expedition some 200 years ago.
