If you find the right option for you, accommodation can often be one of the most exciting parts of a trip. These cool accommodations for adventurous travelers offer something unusual for those seeking out a wild place to stay.
Traditionally used by nomads in Central Asia, yurts are large tents made from wooden lattice structures covered in fabric. A few years ago, the world started to catch onto the unique qualities of these beautiful structures, and now yurt glamping sites are dotted across the UK, USA, and Europe.
Yurts are often decked out with wood-burning stoves and big beds with thick, cosy spreads – a truly luxurious way to camp. Many have see-through circles in their ceilings, so you can watch clouds sweep over the sky from the comfort of your duvet!
Like having a sturdy tent instead of flimsy fabric, a camping pods are one of the latest crazes for outdoor trips. They look like upside-down arks and are expertly put together with wooden slats to create a rustic hideaway.
Pods come either decked out with furniture and a bathroom or completely empty, so that they can accommodate for different levels of comfort and budget.
Wild camping is otherwise known as pitching a tent in unconventional places. Wanderers across the world spend their days finding beaches, forests, and hilltops to sleep on, inspired by all the untouched corners of the globe. Wild camping also has the added benefit of being completely free, making it ideal for budget travelers.
Follow the golden rule when wild camping: leave no trace. Take away all rubbish and depart early so as not to disturb the environment and locals around you. Take some friends for an even more fun experience!
