The paper examines the scope and extent of adventure tourism accidents in New Zealand. The concept of tourist well-being is introduced to characterize the emergence of a new research paradigm based on related multidisciplinary evaluations. Analysis of accident claim data from the Accident Rehabilitation and Compensation Insurance Scheme suggests that this tourism practice might be a significant contributor to tourists' claims. Data from a range of other sources, including Coroners' reports, Maritime Safety Authority records and hospital records are also reviewed. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
