Explorer travellers have become a large segment of the travel market. Various studies have investigated this sector from different aspects, such as motivations, travel experiences, safety issues, as well as cultures and myths. Based on these studies, the aim of this book is “to examine this phenomenon of travel based on the desire for adventure and the need of explore” (p. 3). In this book, Laing and Frost focus specifically on elite explorers who have well-known written accounts, combining with 39 semi-structured interviews to investigate the myth of explorers and how they influence contemporary explorer travellers.
