Planning an adventure vacation offers a thrilling escape from the ordinary and an opportunity to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit. Whether it’s exploring remote wilderness areas, embarking on adrenaline-pumping activities like hiking, whitewater rafting, or zip-lining, or immersing yourself in new cultures and experiences, an adventure vacation promises excitement and unforgettable memories. Stepping out of your comfort zone and embracing new challenges can boost confidence, foster personal growth, and ignite a sense of discovery and exploration.

Adventure vacations also provide an opportunity to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life, reconnect with nature, and create lasting bonds with fellow travelers. From the rush of conquering new heights to the serenity of gazing upon breathtaking landscapes, planning an adventure vacation opens the door to endless possibilities and enriching experiences that will leave you feeling energized, inspired, and ready to take on the world.

Here are some tips to plan an adventurous vacation!


There is no base like a campsite. Your tent is your castle, and your equipment is your survival gear. You won’t have a dishwasher and a washing machine out there, nor will Netflix or an Xbox sustain you for entertainment. Instead, you’ll be cut off from the world of modern amenities, and you’ll be forced think outside the box. This is proper ‘back to nature’ stuff and we recommend that you perform your adventure activities from a base in a campsite to feel properly cut off and outdoorsy. 


There are literally hundreds of different adventure activities you can try out during your travels. If you’re into getting out on your own two feet, there’s hiking, climbing, canyoning, bouldering, and trial running to excite your senses and get your heart rate climbing. 

Alternatively, if you’re into extreme sports, check out opportunities to surf, paraglide, bungee jump, white water raft, canoe, or sail. In your local area there may be a pocket of nature with activities that you’ve never heard of before. Why not try something new and book yourself a new course or trips?

Safety Tips

If this is one of the first times you’ve done an outdoor vacation, it’s important that you stay safe.

Here are a few pointers to keep you from getting hurt on your trip in the great outdoors:

  • Leave behind your itinerary for friends and family.
  • When using gas cookers, always make sure it’s not leaking gas when not in use. 
  • Make sure that you always keep your bedding warm and dry inside your tent. Wet bedding is a recipe for hypothermia. 
  • Make a fire, but make it sufficiently far away from your tent, so that sparks don’t burn holes in it. 
  • Bring more than enough food, including snacks that you’re able to eat without cooking them. 
  • Ensure you bring a great first-aid kit: use this best hiking first aid kit article from The Camping Geek for inspiration.

Your safety is a top priority on your adventure vacation, so make sure you’re nice and safe by following the advice you see online. 

The great thing about a camping and adventure trip is that you will experience new things and have some great new memories!
