Whether aged nine or ninety travellers are wanting more from their travel experiences than just sitting on a coach. The young may bungee jump their way around the globe but if it's not  your thing you can still have your own personal adventure.

As with all travel it pays to plan carefully. Before commiting ensure the activity doesn't endanger your health. Travel companies that offer hiking, walking or cycling tours will inform you of the fitness levels required for each itinerary so you or if necessary your doctor can decide if it's suitable. There are also tours that are specifically managed for different age groups so you have more in common with your travelling companions.

You may find many different ways of having an adventure. To the very fit it can be cross country skiing in the Swiss Alps but to many of us boating to the face of the roaring Iguassu Falls is an absolute thrill. Iexperienced this with friends and family and have the photos to prove it!

Most countries can offer adventures but they can be seasonal so plan your travel dates accordingly . For example, wildlife watching in Sri Lanka is best in March as there's a better chance to see leopards and elephants. Alternatively,hiking in Scotland is better in July when it's summer...and hopefully rain free!

Whatever your adventure ensure that your travel insurance provider covers you for misadventure. There are companies that offer Adventure Travel policies but check the small print. For example,is travelling by motor bike or even motor scooter covered?

When planning your adventure travel a valuable refernce book is Lonely Planet's guide.. A Year of Adventures.
