Active Tourism

Some people go on vacation to relax.  Increasingly, people are using their time away from work to experience new activities.  A new service, Hibala.com, is facilitating adventure and allowing people to share their passion with interested participants.

 

Hibala is all about spreading adventure and making it easier for tourists to actually do interesting things.  Often one will go on vacation with all hopes of exploring a new area to be confronted with the standard hotel gondola full of tourist pamphlets.  The problem is, these activities are focused on pumping as many people through the activity as possible driving more profit.  The root culture of the activity or experience is stripped away by bored tour guides and pre-set itineraries.  

 

Now individuals can create experiences which are unique and personal.  They can share these experiences with like-minded people who want to do something truly memorable.  For example, say you go to the mountains for a white water rafting adventure.  You pick your campground, sign up for the boat and leisurely float down the river in a huge 100+ person group.  The beauty and thrill of the ride is diluted by the shear number of other people.

 

Say you have one more day to explore the area.  You can search the listings.hibala.com site to find alternate adventures.  One bored tour guide may offer to guide you and your friends on a 'secret' trail to a little known waterfall swimming hole or have a nightly bonfire.  Now you are truly plugged into the local scene and feel what it is like to live in a remote mountain area.  These experiences are often more memorable than the original goal of whitewater rafting.  The starving tour guide makes some extra spending cash and you see or do things few other 'tourists' have the opportunity to explore.

 

It seems like a cool service which I am excited to try!

Makarska, Croatia is an absolute beautiful place to visit.  One of the highlights of a recent visit there was the opportunity to paraglide from the rugged mountains down to the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea.  Here is an overview of the launches, landings and general guide to Makarska itself.
