  • Published by Ozgur Tore

skiA study exploring which country has the most adventure seeking citizens reveals that the Netherlands tops the most adventurous country list per capita.

According to the study of SHAREaCAMPER, Peer-to-peer motorhome rental platform, the Netherlands is followed by Australia and Sweden. The USA placed first for total searches, followed by Germany and France.

SHAREaCAMPER chose eight of the most popular adventurous activities including skydiving, surfing, skiing and of course, caravanning, to create the ranking. They researched the Google search 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.”
