Explore the World Through These Amazing Camping Sites
There is nothing more American than going camping, and while there may be limitations, going off the grid is something that gives people their share of thrill a few times a year. There are plenty of camping areas in the United States such as the Ludington State Park in Michigan, Arches National Park in Utah, Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska, to name a few.
Then there are also camping sites that you will need your passport for. Why limit your camping activities in the mainland when there’s so much more of the world to see? Here are other camping sites you should put on your list:
The Isle of Arran in Scotland
This beautiful, historical spot has a wide variety of landscapes and seascapes that can take your breath away. Arran has been inhabited since the early Neolithic period, and it is so old, it was home to numerous prehistoric remains. Campers who visit can hike, sail, kayak, and even cycle around the island, so you are not going to run out of things to do here when you visit.
Simien Mountains in Ethiopia
This UNESCO World Heritage Site has plateaus that are separated by valleys and mountainous areas rising like pinnacles. The mountains are unique in their views, with South Africa’s Drakensberg being the only one with similar views. Explore the mountains on a guided trek and sleep under one of the basic campsites in the area.
Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park in Tasmania, Australia
Australia is rife with national parks and reserves. In fact, around 40 percent of Tasmania is protected, thanks to its numerous wild and remote regions that are peppered with beautiful camping grounds. Whether you’re traveling with a tent or a camper van, the views on this Scotland-sized island will leave you in awe of its beauty.
Steppes in Mongolia
Enjoy a beautiful landscape while experiencing a nomadic lifestyle. Sip fragrant tea in a circular tent, try local dumplings, explore alpine parks, and visit ancient temples as you immerse yourself in the nomad culture. It is recommended that you read up on Mongolian culture so that you will not accidentally offend your hosts during your time there.
Camping Expedition in Antarctica
If you want to do away with mountain views, you may want to experience camping on one of the coldest, driest, and windiest areas in the world. Towering ice structures encircle you as you watch a peaceful sort of bluish light that makes the exhilarating experience nothing less than magical.
Which of these spots are you looking forward to camping on next time?
