Elderly people can now be found exploring the Amazon, visiting polar regions, climbing to high altitude and adventuring into remote parts. They indulge in active leisure time activity and participate in white water rafing, para-gliding, snorkelling, horse riding and sailing while abroad. Moderate physical impairment does not deprive elderly people of the right to venture afar or indulge in active sports, but they should do so aware of potential risk to well-being.
