Camping, hiking, huntfishing… Adventure travel is an amazing way to escape the chaos and stress of everyday life and let yourself get lost (not literally) in nature.
However, the idea of hanging out in the woods with no signal for a week can be intimidating and even unappealing to some. The trick to actually getting the most out of a trip like this is to make it as easy and comfy for yourself as possible.
Here are some surefire ways to make your next adventure trip easy, comfy, fun and fulfilling.
Even when we try to escape real life, we cannot hide the undeniable fact that we need energy. At some point, particularly on longer trips, you will want to turn on the lights, cooking equipment, appliances, or even the TV, if that’s your preferred type of camping.

Upgrade Your Equipment
Sleeping in an old, shabby sleeping bag in a tent blowing in the wind is not going to make camping sound like an interesting experience. If you truly want to enjoy your trip, you must invest in the right equipment.
Tents, sleeping bags, clothing, backpacks, coolers, cooking equipment, GPS, chargers and any other equipment you may need, should all be from good quality and supply you with what you need to make your trip comfy and enjoyable.
There’s no point going if you are going to be tired, itchy and uncomfortable because your camping gear was all bought in the 90’s.
Pack Good Food
No one wants to eat lukewarm canned beans for three days straight. Packing good food is important to really enjoy your trip. Investing in the right cooking equipment (like a camping stove) is an amazing start, and you can plan some easy meals to cook while you are away.
Simple dishes like meat and vegetables, sandwiches, and simple pasta dishes are all great choices because they do not require quite a lot of ingredients or equipment, but are still delicious and nutritious.
Easy-to-eat snacks are also a very important addition to take with you on walks and exploring. Think energy bars, trail mixes, fruit and bottled water.
If you are nervous or uncertain about adventure travel, the smartest thing you can do for yourself is plan well and do your research. Make sure you know about what you need to pack in terms of material and clothing, and read up on the areas you’ll be traveling to.
In this way, you can plan your route and avoid getting lost, plan mini itineraries, remember of any risks around you, and even get to know your environment and what amenities are around.
Having a good and comfy time in the wilderness all boils right down to effective planning and preparation. Make sure you travel with someone experienced if it is your first time, let go of expectations and embrace calm when disconnected.
