What is Slow Adventure?
Slow adventure is a form of tourism which avoids the quick-fix adrenalin-pumping hits of convenient adventure experiences, in favour of slow, immersive journeys, living in and travelling through wild places and natural spaces – experiencing nature in its time frame, its seasons, its weathers and its variations. These journeys will typically include elements of the following:
- Local Food
- Comfort in the outdoors
- Creating and enhancing people’s understanding
- Human- or nature-powered travel
- An enhanced engagement with place
Slow adventure activities draw upon ideas framed around a countries cultures and histories, such as hunting, fishing and wild foods, love of and respect for nature and wildlife, and the relationship between food and the land/sea.
