About this book

Tourism is the world's largest industry. In the past decade it is the natural resource-based sector that has experienced the greatest growth. In particular, adventure, cultural and eco tourism (ACE tourism), for example skiing, white water rafting, whale watching, festivals and fairs. This book provides an in-depth overview of the different operations of ACE tourism. It draws on theory from recreation and leisure studies, tourism, marketing, and environmental management to demonstrate the importance of effective program planning. This is especially significant as industry competition becomes more intense in this growth sector.

David Fennell's finished manuscript cuts new ground ... The text is well written, in an accessible style and there are many useful syntheses which will be very useful to students in structuring the various approaches to ecotourism programming.--Dr. Erlet Cater, University of Reading, UK
