World Tourism Day: 4.6 million tourists interested in mountain biking in Peru

Some 4.6 million foreign tourists are interested in going mountain biking in Peru this and next year, according to Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA).

This was disclosed by PromPeru in the “Adventure Tourist Profile: Mountain Biker” featured in its online publication Turismo In.

“Adventure Tourist Profile: Mountain Biker” is an infographic publication aimed at identifying potential adventure vacationers interested in going mountain biking in Peru. To that end, 2,400 online interviews were conducted with tourists who made at least one international trip —for holiday, recreation or leisure purposes— and engaged in adventure activities over the last two years.

PromPeru entrusted the research to Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA). The assessed markets included: the United States, the UK, Australia, Brazil, France, and Germany, which are the largest sources of (trekking, surf, and mountain biking) tourists to Peru.

The United States stands out among the long-distance markets with 1.2 million tourists. According to the profile of U.S. tourists, 62% of those polled said they are interested in going mountain biking in Peru in the coming two years.

Two out of five were millennials with an average age of 43. Besides, 14% of U.S. travelers live in California.
