The pandemic has ravaged the travel industry and things are not likely to be normal any time in the foreseeable future. Post-pandemic trips will be different as well because you cannot expect to fly to exotic destinations miles away. Holidaying will be more about weekend trips at local destinations where you can reach by road. Still, it doesn’t mean that adventure lovers need to stay cooped up and not explore the best spots that are safe for travel. If you are not sure where to head to for your next adventure trip after the travel restrictions are lifted post-pandemic, here are some cool ideas you can explore.
A camping trip at a national park
Right now, things are still confusing for travel buffs but many states and national parks have phased reopening lined up. Still, even as you consider stepping out, it would be advisable to stick to the nearby locations. The option has some great benefits- you can travel by road and take a break without spending a fortune. The best part is that you can make it a weekend trip or plan one with a short stay. And the chance to be outdoors in the wilderness means that you don’t need to worry about social distancing. Since you will camp outdoors, there’s hardly a risk of getting infected from a hotel room or restaurant table.
A hunting excursion
If your idea of an adventure is more on the wilder side, you can plan a hunting excursion when it is safe to go out. There couldn’t be a better place to stay protected from the virus than the wilderness. But be sure that you have all the protective gear you need, right from your engarde body armor to mask, gloves and weapons you need for hunting. Surely, keeping yourself safe from stray bullets is as important as staying protected from the infection.
A hiking trip at a less-crowded trail
You will probably be tired after months of being indoors, so a hiking trip to a local trail makes a great idea for a short post-pandemic holiday. Make sure that you choose one that is less crowded because any packed tourist sites still remain dangerous from a health perspective. Look for a versatile destination that offers attractions such as trekking, camping, and cycling as well. You will surely want to relish the sun and the wind after all the stress of staying in lockdown.
A short beach holiday
A weekend at a less-frequented beach destination is a great idea if you want a more subdued and relaxed outdoor experience this season. You may drive to a quiet beach town nearby if you aren’t really comfortable about air travel in the post-pandemic phase. There’s plenty of scope for adventure on the beach as you can try watersports or camping on the beach.
Adventure travel doesn’t seem out of reach in the post-pandemic world but you need to prioritize personal safety before everything else. Make sure that you check out the place and verify that it is safe to travel to.
