From River Cruises to Rustic Yoga Retreats

 - Nov 16, 2017
While some people travel to discover something new, these examples of niche tourism innovations explore a side of vacationing that's carefully curated to help like-minded individuals deeply connect with one communal interest.

A river cruise caters to its guests by offering DJ parties, on-board mixology classes and wine tastings. These experiences enable the guests to get to know one another, making for the perfect opportunity for an unaccompanied solo traveler. Fitness-focused cruises may appeal to the workout buff, enabling a traveler to stay in shape and take in some gorgeous scenery, while surrounded by like-minded people. Those looking for a more community-oriented experience may be drawn to 'WiFi Tribe', a subscription-based nomadic traveling group that embark on monthly trips, with a vibrant community that exists both on and offline.

Adventurers looking for a more connected experience can easily do so, as technological advancements present consumers with a travel resource for nearly every niche. Apps such as 'Travel Together,' enable the millennial consumer to streamline their experience-oriented vacation, while networks like 'TWIP' connect compatible travel companions, so one doesn't have to embark on a solo adventure.
