What Is Extreme Tourism?

An extreme environment is one in which there exist difficult environmental conditions for human survival. They include deserts, ice sheets, mountains and rainforests.

Younger, adventurous people are often the target market, so called DINKS (Dual Income No Kids!) because they have the fitness and cash for such activities.

Extreme tourism has expanded in popularity in recent years, as people search adventure. Many people do not want packaged holidays in huge mass tourist resorts and are looking for something different in a holiday. This is where Extreme tourism comes in.

This means that even more people can become extreme tourists. Antarctica is one place where you can be an extreme tourist, and is your case study for this unit.
