....enabling returns from thin air.
A sector that has for decades recognised and embraced the merit of skyscape activation. Enabling negotiation of hostile or sensitive environments with minimal environmental impact and presenting the 'big picture' - a rare insight and perspective that inevitably promotes curiosity and reverence. This is one of TouchCloud's favourite sectors, for it often provides us an opportunity to get back 'home'.
"Through wilderness we remember and are brought home again" - Sir Lourens van der Post
Productions such as canopy zipline tours, elevated walkways and motorised ziplines tours are permitting tourists to actively engage with landscapes like they have never done before. Tours and experiences are now limited only by the imagination. Over the next few decades we will see a further embrace of non-tradional settings by the sector, such as special events and the cityscape. At present, though, nature based tours make for the bulk of the tourism sector.
Eco-adventure tours at-height are definitely fun and exciting - but they can also be much more. For many it will be an experience like no other. It fully engages the guest, providing that rare window of opportunity to anchor messages about the fragility and complexity of ecosystems as well as site messages associated with heritage and culture. A sense of awe and a feeling of rejuvenation is common feedback – it is an experience guests internalise and reflect on time and time again.
Activating a skyscape lets the 'big picture' in.
