Our 4th year Adventure Tourism Management students recently returned from a cycle and surf expedition in Portugal. The group cycled between the main surf hotspots on the south west coast carrying all their gear on the bikes. This expedition was planned and carried out as part of the final year of their degree programme.
Research was carried out by the students into the surfing and cycling product in Portugal and the lessons to be learned by the adventure tourism industry in Ireland. The students will be presenting some of their findings at a seminar at I.T. Tralee, which will take place in the coming week.
