Adventure travelers looking for a good website to help sift though all the available options for their next journey may want to checkout Kumutu. The site recently launched, and offers trips with over 900 tour operators across the globe, giving you the option to search, read reviews, and even book a fantastic trip, quickly and easily.
The site does an excellent job of letting us search for options either by activity or destination, and quickly presents us with all kinds of information based on our criteria. So, for instance, if you are looking for a mountaineering trip, you select that as your activity of choice, and you're presented with four options in a variety of locations and at a variety of prices. Similarly, if you select New Zealand as the country you'd like to visit, you're given more than a dozen itineraries to choose from, offering up everything from skydiving to whitewater rafting.
My personal favorite way to search however is by using the Kumutu Map. When this option is selected, you're presented with a view of the globe, powered by Google of course, with virtual push-pins dropped in locations all over the world. Clicking on any of those push-pins gives you a brief summary of the tour operator and the trips they have available. Another click on the name of the company takes you to a profile page with far more info.
Kumutu has only been up and running for a short time, but it already has an impressive array of options for searching for your next trip. But the team behind the site isn't resting on its laurels either, as they hope to have 20,000 travel companies listed in their database by the end of the year. That would give travelers looking for new challenges a fantastic resource when searching and booking their next adventure.
