During the past years, there have been an escalation in interest on vacations that are more active and tourism surrounding fitness and exercise is a growing aspect in the tourism industry. Fitness and exercise is mentioned by some researchers to be a part of sport tourism and wellness tourism, however, how much research have been done to investigate this topic?

The aim of this thesis is to look deeper into the topics of sport- and wellness tourism in order to get a better understanding and a clearer picture of what kind of research that exists in order to confront the claims of both Priestly (1995) and Gibson (1998). In addition to this, see what research have been done in sport- and wellness tourism directly connected to exercise and fitness
