2017 Global Adventure Ranking

Australia has come in second on the list of the world’s most adventurous country per capita, with a number 1 position for rock climbing, surfing and skydiving!

Adventure junkies take note! Peer-to-peer motorhome rental platform SHAREaCAMPER have released a recent study which explores which country has the most adventure seeking citizens per capita.

As a company focussed on helping travellers plan their driving adventure, SHAREaCAMPER, undertook the study to better inform thrill seekers where in the world they might find kindred travel buddies.

The Netherlands tops the most adventurous country list per capita, followed closely by Australia which scored top rankings for rock climbing, skydiving and surfing, and third place was taken out by Sweden. The study presents a global insight into which adventure sports are popular in which country, and SHAREaCAMPER chose eight of the most popular adventurous activities which were BMX, bungee jumping, skydiving, hiking, rock climbing, surfing, skiing and caravanning.

The study was based on research through Google which searched volume for keywords associated with these activities in the last twelve months. These figures were then ranked, first by the number of searches averaged per 100,000 citizens in each country. Then, the second ranking is reflective of the actual number of searches, to give an accurate indication of the amount of people searching.

“Both our caravan owners and renters are adventurers at heart,” states SHAREaCAMPER CEO, Florian Dahlmann. “Although our we are based in Germany, Australia and New Zealand, knowing where to find adventurous people across the world is interesting for ourselves and any other business that thrives on adventure.”

The USA placed first for total searches, followed by Germany and France.

Further findings of interest from the ranking include:

 Surfing is the most popular in Australia per capita, whilst the USA has the highest number of searches per month for the activity.
 Rock climbing is most popular per capita in Australia, whilst the USA has the highest number of searches per month for the activity.
 BMXing is most popular in France per capita, whilst the USA has the highest number of searches per month for the sport.
 Bungee jumping is most popular per capita in Switzerland, whilst the USA has the highest number of searches per month for the activity.
 Caravanning is most popular per capita in the Netherlands, whilst the USA has the highest number of searches per month for the activity.
