What is a diploma in adventure tourism? Adventure tourism is broadly defined by the Adventure Travel Trade Association as including “physical activity, a cultural exchange, and a connection with nature.” Students earning this diploma can acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to become an adventure tourism guide. Activities of focus can range from hiking and backpacking to kayaking and rock climbing. Along with the requisite physical and practical skills, participants may also study competent leadership, legal regulations and the environmental and cultural impacts of tourism.

Taking a diploma in adventure tourism offers both specific practical expertise and broader skills. Students can become familiar with outdoor equipment and how to instruct others in its use, and they often also receive training in first aid. Additionally, students acquire vital leadership skills, including risk management and decision-making.

As a shorter program than those for most degrees, a program for a diploma in adventure tourism will often be less expensive as well. For specifics regarding programs of interest at given schools, students should contact the relevant office to learn more.
