New York, NYAvidTrips, an innovative website that empowers adventure travelers to discover and book adventure trips directly with the world’s leading adventure tour operators, today announced the results of its first ‘Top Adventures’ survey.  Fielded on June 25, 2011 at this year’s Adventures NYC in Central Park, the largest outdoor travel exhibition of its kind, AvidTrips surveyed more than 150 adventure travelers.  The results reveal the world’s top three adventure travel destinations as The Galapagos Islands, the South Island of New Zealand, and Machu Picchu respectively.

“AvidTrips is dedicated to solving travelers’ growing frustrations with finding and booking adventure travel experiences online,” said Sanem Eruçar, Founder & CEO of AvidTrips.  “The launch of our annual ‘Top Adventures’ survey is part of our ongoing efforts to bring the world’s most amazing adventure trips to travelers, direct from the world’s leading adventure tour operators.  It is exciting to see not only where adventure travelers are headed next, but also where we can expand and deepen our network of leading adventure tour operators.”..”

The ‘Top Adventures’ survey included 60 domestic and international adventure destinations, and respondents were asked to select up to three places they most want to visit.  Results revealed differences in desired adventures by age and gender.  The South Island of New Zealand emerged the top pick among female adventurers, followed by Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands.  Male adventurers picked the Galapagos Islands first, followed by Patagonia and Yosemite National Park.  Travelers in the 18-34 age group would like to visit the South Island of New Zealand, the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu, whereas adventurers in the 35-54 age group selected Bora Bora, French Polynesia, the Galapagos Islands and Yosemite National Park as their most desired adventure destinations.
