Here we present the greatest explorers. They show ways for others and make our lives more interesting to live. There are also important things you could learn from them!

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. But there are still some "white spots" left to explore for they who venture...

To boost the growing of industrialism there were need for new resources and supplies. Captain James Cook extended the Age of Exploration with his expeditions and discoveries in the late 1700 century.

It must have been interesting to join expeditions at that time to encounter people for first time and explore unknown lands. Some of the most famous explorers of the period were Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Pedro Álvares Cabral, John Cabot, Yermak, Juan Ponce de León, Ferdinand Magellan, Willem Barentsz, Abel Tasman, and Willem Jansz. Today an increasing number of people travel around the world searching for unique adventures at well known places.

It took a time before the Arctic and Antarctic seas become explored, and it was not until the nineteenth century explorations started.

Nothing will be like the early 15th century and 17th century. The world has become small because so much have been explored, but there is still opportunities for great explorations and discoveries today. So if we can take advantage of tour science, hese to explore eastwards.

Some of the recent discoveries are:
Unknown animals below The Great Barrier Reef in Australia
Inca ruins from Inca settlement similar as in Peru

What will be next?
Remains of the Yeti, the lost city Atlantis, the Holy Grail, more unknown tribes in the Amazon, Papua New Guinea, West Papua - Iran Jaya, and Central Africa,

Not all discoveries will be available for people, but some will. How will discoveries in the future affects tourism?

Unusual journeys, explorers and discoveries have always fascinated people. There is always a dream about find something new.
