Traveling and adventure sport is our passion as well as the passion of thousands of other people. Searching for fun recreational activities and planning the ultimate vacation takes place mostly in front of the computer nowadays. Each year millions and millions of people follow suggestions of the internet with the consequence that many places are overly crowded and some of the highlights and insider tips remain undiscovered.
A couple of years back we had a completely different way of organizing our day. Wefollowed the motto “The recommendation of a friend is worth more than the most expensive travel guide” and trusted our friends intuitively in the recommendations they gave us.
TouriSpo combines the advantages of the two approaches: planning your vacation using the internet and including advice from friends in your decisions. The almost endless range of information on the internet is nicely structured and enriched with the help of recommendations of like-minded people. The goal is to help people plan their day the best and easiest way possible, with minimal research efforts and through the personal experience of our users.
TouriSpo gives people the opportunity to not only search for recreational activities around the world but to give their own travel advice to others. You can create entries regarding hikes, bike tours, sights and many other things as well as edit, evaluate or comment on the entries of others.
When using TouriSpo you have many different possibilities to find activities around the world. If you know the name or the location of your activity just type it into the search bar on the website and TouriSpo will give you a list of entries matching your search. In addition you are able to navigate through countries and different regions using the navigation menu on the left. You can filter the results according to recreational activities. If you click on the suitcase Icon, TouriSpo will show you all the entries of one country/one region. If you switch to another symbol you will receive the results for hikes, bathing opportunities, sights or bike tours.
If you click on the map in the navigation menu, you can very easily navigate yourself into the region that you want to explore. The differently colored symbols will show you how many entries of a specific category and in a specific region are already online on TouriSpo.

The third possibility is searching with help of the Travel Guide.
