This is a type of tourism in which the main reason for travelling is to carry out tourism activities in natural areas. This can be contemplating and observing nature such as ecotourism or ecological tourism or activities which entail physical fitness for participants and a certain degree of risk in terms of adventure tourism.
The growth of outdoor sport and leisure activities and their link to tourism is determined by multiple reasons among which we find an increase in leisure time, a need for unpolluted open spaces and the search for adrenaline and risk.
A big advantage of this type of travel is that it offers the chance to discover a place in a different way whilst you do a certain activity. A tourist stops being a mere observer and becomes part of his/her surroundings through sport.
Active tourism includes from participating in a sporting event, riding a mountain bike on a mountain range, discovering the sea bottom whilst snorkelling or going into hidden caves or potholing. All of these activities can be done in natural surroundings.
