How to inspire adventure travellers to explore more of the world?

Travel adventurers are often motivated to venture off the beaten track by a variety of compelling reasons. Imagine you discover a hidden world, a place where the journey itself becomes the destination. Each step off the beaten track is a step into the extraordinary, where every moment is a story waiting to be told.

What are the key motivators that inspire them to seek out unique and less-traveled paths?

Thor Heyerdahl, Larvik, Norway - In the early footsteps of a world adventurer

This Norwegian Thor Heyerdahl showed new ways of explorations and adventures to the world. He did it in his own way. Mostly regarded, but also many scepticans. He was born and grow up in the city Larvik in southern Norway, and in these surroundings I could understand where he got his inspirations from.

Why didn`t Marco Polo mentioned The Great Wall of China in his journals? Watch video clip!

Marco Polo travelled around in China for 17 years. Is it possible that he didn`t observe the Great Wal of China, or even hear about it, in this period? Or did`t he go to China at all? Maybe Marco Polo had some good reasons for not telling the world about one of the most impressing human made wonders in the world.

Some of them are from Norwegian Vikings, and other are from great travellers as Captain James Cook, Thor Heyerdahl and Rudard Kipling.

New age of explorations in the current century - New generation of travellers take advantage of well developed infrastructure, transportation and communication!

The heydays of explorations and discoveries were from the early 15th century and into the early 17th century. This period was the so-called Age of Discovery or Age of Exploration. At that time Europeans sailed around the world to search for new trading routes. There are better opportunities for transportation and communication now than it was for some centuries ago, and eager travellers know how to take advantage of them to reach remote areas.
