Cross-marketing occurs principally where guides work for several different operators, who may offer different activities. Between these extremes, adventure tours are sold by much the same means as other types of travel products, using catalogues, trade shows, advertisements and editorial coverage in magazines, agent familiarisation trips, and so on. For some activities there is also a degree of cross-marketing with the fashion and entertainment industries, but at a very broad level. RESEARCH REVIEW Products and pricing Academic research in adventure tourism has generally been slow to examine the changing structure, pricing and marketing of actual retail adventure tourism products (Buckley, 2006a, 2007a, 2009a).

Heliski operations in the Himalayas and the Canadian Rockies, for example, are all designed around a 1-week all-inclusive package, irrespective of operator; but those in New Zealand are sold as single-day trips. The main bulk of the adventure market consists of high-volume, lowdifficulty products for unskilled clients. The leading edge, in contrast, consists of low-volume, high-cost products which require prior skills, involve significant individual risk for clients, and operate in more remote and inhospitable areas (Buckley, 2004a).

The individual products were described in detail by Buckley (2006a), and the approach by Buckley (2007a). The parameters examined are: price, duration, remoteness, group size, client-to-guide ratio, and prior skill requirements. These are all considerations which may affect purchasing decisions in various ways. A total of 78 individual audits are available, but there are <10 individual tour products for any 1 activity type, and the selection of products in each subsector is not necessarily representative.
