The term “experiential travel” refers to a type of tourism that entails actively and meaningfully interacting with a location’s culture, people, and/or environment in order to create one-of-a-kind and unforgettable experiences. It’s the anecdote about visiting new objections, keeping off in an unexpected direction, experiencing credible neighborhood encounters, and simply accomplishing something uncommon. And by that, we don’t just mean actual activities. Even unusual lodgings like treehouses or glamping cabins can sometimes provide unforgettable experiences.

Immersive travel entails, well, immersing oneself in a foreign culture, which typically entails mingling with the local community, participating in customary activities, attending local events, and so forth. You get the idea: volunteering at the nearby field, attending a weekend flea market, attending a local yoga class, booking a homestay instead of a hotel, etc.

Adventure travel, on the other hand, focuses more on physical activities. It can be something relatively risk-free and moderately strenuous, such as camping or hiking, or it can be more athletic and even exhilarating, such as skydiving, rafting, bungee jumping, mountain climbing, and so on.
