If you love hiking, camping, and the outdoors in general, vacations and trips may look a little different for you than they do for other people. You are likely always looking for the best trips to take where you can camp, far away from society and off the beaten path a bit. Lucky for you, there are tons of places across the globe left for you to explore, whether solo or with your partner or family. Here are some of the best places you should definitely go camping before you die.
If you have the opportunity, camping in Iceland is well worth the trouble and expense it may take for you to get there. Lava fields, glaciers, and incredibly colorful mountains will shock and delight you. It’s such a romantic place that who knows, you may even fall in love with someone who lives there and think about hiring an immigration lawyer to bring them back home to live happily ever after!
The Pacific Northwest
Northwestern Oregon and Washington state boast miles and miles of forest, ocean views, wildlife, and even some alleged Sasquatch sightings. There are hundreds of campsites for you in this region if you aren’t afraid of getting rained on a little.
Alaska may not be your first choice for a spot to go camping because of it’s freezing cold reputation, but it’s actually an incredibly beautiful place. You can even see the Northern Lights in certain parts of Alaska if you go at the right time of Spring. What better way to truly enjoy the best nature has to offer than to camp out? Just make sure you do your research first and are prepared for incredibly frigid temperatures.
Chilé and Argentina are a dream to explore for anyone who considers themself “outdoorsy.” Miles of forests and snow-capped mountains are like none you’ve ever seen in your lifetime. Be prepared to see lots of beavers and make sure you are in good physical shape as there may be some difficult hiking involved.
Utah is one of the most under-rated camping sports in the world. Bryce and Zion canyons look like something from another planet (Mars comes to mind) and are reminiscent of the Grand Canyon, but impressive in their own special ways. Try to avoid going in the summer time as it does get very hot, but no matter when you go bring plenty of water and perhaps a battery-operated personal fan.
Camping is awesome even if you’re only going a few miles away from home, but consider stepping out of your comfort zone and exploring the world while camping. Who knows, you might even discover your new favorite place.
