According to a CoolCamping report, in 2021, more people than ever in the UK decided to pitch their tents and enjoy a camping weekend - also because of the Covid-19 related restrictions and travel bans. While camping saved the holiday experience of millions of people last year, outdoorsy holidays are not just a fast quick fad - they are here to stay! 

If you have missed out on this movement last year, there is still time to make the most of next spring and summer. Just make sure you start planning in advance and be ready to book your first camping weekend as soon as possible! If you are not sure whether this holiday type is for you, check out these four benefits of camping.

It Is Economical

The CoolCamping report shows that the average spent on camping holidays is around £186 for a family for a three-night stay. Which is much cheaper than any other type of 3-day holiday or weekend getaway! 

Additionally, when camping, you will have the chance to cook your own meal and move around the area using your own vehicle. This can help you cut down on costs such as eating and drinking out.

And, by choosing the right vehicle and learning how to drive conservatively, you can make your journey even more economical

Allows You To Explore in All Freedom

If you love adventurous holidays and trips but you can’t travel far because of the current restrictions, a camping trip might just be perfect for your needs. Indeed, when camping, you can pitch your tent in extremely beautiful natural surroundings, enjoy close contact with nature, admire the wildlife, and embark on adventures not so far from home.

For example, you might consider travelling to a near mountain range, parks, natural reserve, or even a beach. Just make sure to pick the best kind of camping trip for your needs!

Camping Is for Everyone

Over the past years, camping holidays were considered to be just for outdoorsy people. However, 2021 entirely revolutionised the way of seeing activities like camping. Today, camping is literally for everyone, no matter whether you love spending time alone, making memories with your kids, or enjoying a romantic getaway with your other half. 

Some camping holiday types include:

  • RV and caravanning

  • Campers and motorhomes

  • Backpacking

  • Car camping

  • Rent camping

  • Glamping

  • Safari tent camping

If you are unsure about the kind of camping that is right for you and you are looking to keep expenses low, check out a local marketplace to find preloved tents or even used Adria motorhomes!

It’s Healthy

Camping offers many physical and mental benefits. Spending time outdoors can help you get your dose of Vitamin D, feel more active, and fill up your energy. What's more is that spending time in nature is a great way to reconnect with the natural surroundings and find an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. 

Spending a weekend camping offers you everything you need from a vacation: time to relax and enjoy a book, socialise with your friends and families, share stories and make memories, and be active throughout the holiday. What more could you want?!
