“I found myself on the path to Mount Everest”, your colleague who just came back from trekking the Everest Base Camp in Nepal keeps repeating. You ask him what he means, curious to understand, and end up fascinated by his tale of his last ‘adventure travel’.
Adventure travel became a popular term in recent years, and an increasing number of travelers decide to unwind by actively exploring faraway lands rather than sipping cocktails on the beach. While not the most obvious way of relaxing, setting off on an active holiday will bring you experiences, encounters and confidence that would be difficult to find at home.
It’s decided, you’re ready to take the step towards your first or your next adventure trip and to discover some of the most stunning regions of our planet. As any traveler of our time would, you open your browser and start typing the name of your destination of choice. Millions of results pop up, you open hundreds of tabs, read tons of blog articles… and come out of the experience demotivated and wondering what came through your mind. ‘Booking at an all-inclusive resort will be much easier’, you tell yourself, and you almost think of giving up on the adventure before it has even started.
That’s when Reccy comes to your rescue. We know the overwhelming feeling of having to go through all these websites to collect the needed information. We know the stress of planning an adventure from zero in a country you have no knowledge about. And we know what it’s like to try and compare operators each labeling themselves as ‘the best in the region’. We have been through it too, and we got tired of it. Planning your next adventure should be exciting, not stressful; and that’s why we decided to simplify the process for you. How do we do that, you ask? By bringing all the needed information under one roof and acting as your personal travel guide along the whole process.
Our world is full of incredible places to discover, and sometimes the simple task of choosing a destination can be a lot of work. On Reccy, you will be able to browse through all the major adventure hubs from a one and unique website.
You’ve gone through the first step of choosing your destination country(ies). Each place offers hundreds of adventures, and the next thing you will have to figure out is which one(s) you would like to embark on. Whether it’s a multi-day hike up in the French Alps, or a climbing expedition to the summit of the highest Peruvian mountain – all worthy adventures are listed on Reccy. Our experienced travel writers have described each activity to give you more clarity and get you excited on what awaits, so all you have to do is figure out what you’re up for.
Each tour operator might claim to be the best, but all will not be the best for you. Your travel style, budget and personal preferences will influence which local or global operator you should choose, and we want to support you making this choice as well. By helping you compare what is offered by each tour company, we want to make sure that you don’t come across unexpected and unpleasant surprises.
Now that you have booked your adventure with the best operator, it’s time to start preparing everything leading up to the starting date! Whether it’s accommodation recommendations, needed gear, or required insurance, all the practicalities will be mentioned on Reccy. This will help you get everything ready without having to stress about forgetting something and will get you excited about the experience you’re about to live.
So, whether you’ve been part of the adventure seekers’ community for years, or this is your first adventure travel, Reccy will be here to make sure that your adventure is everything you are expecting and more.
