Contact the tour operator if you feel your age might be a hindrance to performing an activity. However you will usually find there are plenty of options for those who want a slower pace.

Fitness and Experience

Most operators offer a wide variety of trips to fit a broad range of interests, experience and fitness levels. Usually no or little experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and a willingness to try something new. Every trip has participants of varying abilities so there’s usually someone else traveling at your speed. This is perfect for friends, couples or families who can spend the day with similarly fit travelers and then reunite for the evenings. However do note your level of fitness will effect how much you enjoy the tour.

Choosing a Tour

Consider your own ability when selecting a multi sports activity. Make sure you have the appropriate fitness and experience required. Most tour operators usually have an FAQ section to answer your questions, can be flexible with dates if you have a large enough group and even provide comments from previous participants to help you decide.


Although most trips have adults in mind, many itineraries are suitable for strong and active teenagers or even younger children.

Solo Travelers

Many multi sport travelers are often alone so don’t be put off joining with a tour company. Most companies match singles with another traveler of the same gender to save on your costs otherwise you will have to pay a single supplement as there are usually limited facilities in hotels for singles.


The logistics of organizing tours to remote corners of the world is complex. Tour operators spend long hours researching destinations, routes, ground operations and equipment. Nothing is untested however there is an element of risk in all the activities.
