Risk-tourism, risk-taking and subjective well-being: A review and synthesis

Abstract

This paper seeks to conceptualize the potential relationship between subjective well-being and risk-taking within ‘risk-tourism’ i.e. specific activities that involve the potential for physical injury and death and require participants to develop competencies with which to overcome the risks associated with those activities. Literature is reviewed in three fields of inquiry: subjective well-being, with specific reference to the interactions between wellbeing and tourism behavior, risk-taking in tourism and risk-tourism. The areas of interaction between risk-tourism and subjective well-being, emerging critical questions and potential areas of future inquiry are subsequently examined.
