(2005), ‘much of the influential research on adventure highlights risk as the key element, but interestingly, the conceptual bases have been developed not by tourism researchers but by those working in outdoor recreation’. General considerations of tourist health and safety are available in books such as Clift et al. (1997) and Wilks and Page (2003). Page et al.

In Europe, Petreas (2003) reported the environmental impacts of diving in Greece.
