What is an Adventure?
We define Adventure as an inspirational trip where
you travel to a remote or exotic outdoor location close to nature,
take part in activities that are often challenging, and immerse in
the local culture. For example, Everest Base Camp Trek, Hiking the
Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Tour du Mont Blanc, Via Ferrata Mürren –
Gimmelwald, Simme River Rafting are all Adventures. Point to note
is, an Adventure can have one or more Trip Options offered by the
operators. So you first decide which Adventure you want to embark
on, then compare the trips offered by different operators and then
book the trip of your choice.
What are Recommended Adventures?
Recommended Adventures are the Adventures that you
will see in reccytravel.com when you search based on any criteria
such as activity, mission, destination, or any free text. These
adventures have been curated by Reccy’s experts. On clicking any of
the Recommended Adventures you will find more details on that
Adventure including (a) bookable trips for the adventure being
offered by various operators, which you will be able to compare
based on important parameters: price, duration, itinerary,
inclusions, reviews and ratings, (b) some quick facts which will
help you to decide if the adventure is the right one for you, (c)
highlights of the adventure, (d) a recommended fitness plan, (e) a
detailed checklist, (f) information to explore and buy (or rent as
the case may be) insurance and gear and apply for visa, (g) other
adventures and activities that you can undertake from the hub, and
(h) information to explore and book your travel to the hub and stay
at the hub.
What is a Trip Option?
A Trip Option for a Recommended Adventure is a
bookable trip offered by an operator. Different operators may offer
trips for the same Adventure, but they may vary in price, duration,
inclusion/exclusion, start and end points, itinerary and ratings.
Reccy gives you an easy way to compare various Trip Options so that
you can choose / save to your wishlist / book what suits you the
What is a hub?
A hub is a town/city/village which is the access
point or gateway to multiple Adventures. In most cases it is a small
charming towns….often tucked in a valley, or perched on a hilltop,
may be nestled at the foothills of a massive mountain range,
sometimes located in a remote island, or probably acting as a
gateway to a jungle, a volcano that you can climb or an ancient
ruin. A hub is a place where your adventure begins. At Reccy, we
specialize in such adventure hubs, by providing you with a wide
choice of Adventures that you can undertake from the hubs as well as
by helping you plan and book travel and lodging options which can be
a bit cumbersome as these hubs are often located far from metro
cities and international airports.
What do we mean by Activities?
While an Adventure is a specific trip, an Activity
is a generic categorization of Adventures. For example, “The Inca
Trail to Machu Picchu” is an Adventure, for which the Activity is
What do we mean by Missions?
We at Reccy believe that all adventure lovers have
a primary reason for exploring an Adventure trip. It may be bonding
with your partner, going on a challenging expedition, experiencing a
high-altitude trek, combining thrill with luxury, finding a budget
trip or a quick weekend trip, or initiating kids to their first
active vacation, or something else. This is your mission, your
primary driver for searching for an inspiring Adventure.
What are “Challenge Level Classifications”?
Challenge Level Classification or Grade of an
Adventure conveys the fitness and skill level that we recommend as a
prerequisite for embarking on a particular Adventure. For more
details, go to Tools/Fitness.
How many people can take part in an Adventure?
This can vary from Adventure to Adventure and also
depends on the operator organizing the trip. Most fixed departure
trips form a group of adventure enthusiasts. On the other hand, you
can also hire an agency or a guide to create a private group or a
guide to take you solo for an Adventure. We recommend that you
review the Trip Options in detail and/or contact the operators
directly in case you need to know the group size for a particular

our goal is to inspire you to search and find your next Adventure,
and once you have found that, to provide you with options offered by
the best global and local operators for that adventure. We realize
that the best way to narrow down on a bookable trip option is to
compare them based on a few important parameters: price, duration,
itinerary, inclusions and independent reviews and ratings. We enable
you to do just that so that you can book the trip with much greater
