  1. They often attract the same general types of people.
  2. They are usually outdoor-oriented.
  3. They both involve a certain level of activity & involvement.
  4. They are both offered worldwide.
However there are also many differences. Active travel usually involves:
  1. a fairly safe setting and activity.
  2. a certain level of active involvement that is exhilarating but not exhausting.
  3. participants between the ages of five and 95.
  4. either guided, hosted, or self-guided tours.
  5. a wider range of price ranges from very inexpensive for most self-guided and hosted tours to relatively higher fees for fully guided tours.
