Tourism as a dynamic phenomenon has a wonderful capacity to change, adapt and evolve. At the beginning of the 21st Century we are witnessing a growing demand from tourists for amazing and bizarre experiences, and more extreme and unusual environments. Written by leading researchers from around the world, New Horizons in Tourism, examines this new wave of tourism. It presents a host of examples of out-of-the-ordinary tourism including cutting-edge tourism activities such as vacationing in space and discovering the forbidden lands of Antarctica and Arctic regions. It also explores the trends of pro-poor and volunteer tourism, ecotourism, the rise in the number of footloose senior citizens, and the growing attraction of areas of conflict and atrocity.
