Adventure Weekends

By: Darren Hitz

With the advent of the Internet, young professional are able to book airlines, hotels, rental cars on their own, but they still need assistance in putting them together and adding the services of trusted providers on the ground for such activities as dining, nightlife, and adventures (rafting, skydiving, fishing, etc.)

Most packaged tours last seven to ten days, while weekend trips last from Friday to Sunday and are more moderately priced. There is no time off work and no planning six months in advance. Customers desire packaged trips, with the ability to customize them and even set up trip web pages where people can log on and buy a seat.

No need to collect checks and pool money for some cattle call where customers are mixed in with groups of people on a tour bus. Weekend trips average twenty people and will go with as few as six.

Adventure weekends are a new concept in travel. People traveling to locations across the country to participate in private cattle drives, skydiving, fishing and whitewater rafting trips. What separates weekend travel companies from the typical travel agent and outfitter is that they not only handle all the lodging, transportation, food and adventure, but also provide local knowledge and convenience for over 50 locations. Everywhere from San Diego CA, Ft. Collins CO, Traverse City MI and Boston MA.

Customers include alumni groups, fraternal organizations, bachelor(ette) parties, church groups, family reunions, company teambuilding events and weekend getaways.

Service providers must have the knowledge of each location and researched all the restaurantsFeature Articles, outfitters and lodging to determine which offer the best combination of local flavor and quality service. Even providing personalized maps of all the locations they will be visiting and cheat sheets of the night spots.
