The travel and tourism industry is always evolving. What was popular with tourists yesterday may not be popular with them today. What is consistent is tourists desire to do something or see something different. Eco-tourism and adventure tourism have become a major trend in the travel industry. However, over the past years we have also seen the rise of niche market holidays that have been tailor-made to appeal to individual’s hobbies and interests such as gourmet and cooking vacations, garden tours, or scuba holidays. Add to the mix a decidedly different kind of tourist the ghost hunter.

Today there are hundreds of different companies, groups, and clubs that offer a diverse variety of ghost tours and paranormal holidays. Paranormal tourism can range from a short guided walking tour though the historic section of town, visiting grave yards and old jails like Charleston, South Carolina’s Ghost Walks, to groups with names such as Supernatural Entity Anomaly Research & Cryptid Hunters or the Northern Ireland Paranormal Research Association who seriously investigate all aspects of the paranormal and the occult. Armed with electromagnetic field meters, cameras and tape recorders, these investigators take ghost hunting to a whole new level.
