Play in Adventure Tourism

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

This paper discusses narratives of polar adventure tourism from a multidisciplinary perspective of play. Reviewing discussions on the motivation behind this subject, it examines two concurrent approaches in particular: risk and insight theories. Based on
empirical evidence obtained from a winter trekking trip to an Artic tourism destination, the paper argues that these theories may be particular components of adult play. The interplay among risk, insight seeking, and play is explored in this paper with a particular emphasis
being placed on the competence, materiality, and bodily techniques demonstrated by Arctic adventure tourists.
