Abstract: Abstract Tourist behavior has always been a central issue in the tourism discourse. Research in this area has long focused on destination choices, especially those destinations which still attract visitors despite of their security circumstances. Most of the tourists who choose traveling to a less safe destination are looking for new adventures, thus unique holidays. However, with that need of experiencing new sensations, and having a non-standard experiences, tourists cannot deny the fact of being attentive and taking precautions while traveling to an unsafe destination. The purpose of this research relies on defining what kind of precautions the tourists take while traveling to a destination which can threaten their safety, and in which way those precautions contribute to increase the tourist satisfaction.
