As we kickoff a new year, many adventure travelers will be aiming to fill their calendars with unique experiences. Our editors have round up the top three outdoor travel trends for 2022 to help you get a jumpstart on booking your next excursion.
#1 Experiences, experiences, experiences.
We predict that in 2022 travelers will book more pre-built itineraries than ever before. With the rise in new variants, and uncertainty over conditions, travelers will choose to turn to the experts. Pre-built adventures and excursions give travelers peace of mind in having a professional choose the activities and adventures. One of our top picks for 2022 is the Orvis Adventures. When our team was finishing holiday shopping, we visited a Orvis store and were delighted to learn about their adventure programs which are fun and educational In their own words, Orvis describes that they have over 160 years of experience and can provide a unique adventure “from your first cast to your bucket-list trip—Orvis Adventures is dedicated to helping you explore your passion. Our experienced Adventures team and our expertly vetted Orvis-Endorsed Partner network remove all the guesswork—and you’re ensured a best-in-class experience, no matter what kind of adventure you’re looking for.”
#2 Explore the National Parks
This could be the year to start checking off National Park visits on your list. With travel restrictions on the horizon, visiting National Parks can be a great trip for United States travellers to visit something in their own backyard, and a safe outdoor trip for families and groups. If you visit Yosemitie National Park, Travel Today recommends staying in Fish Camp, CA at the Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite which is an all-season resort nestled in the mountains. Two miles from Yosemite’s south gate, Tenaya offers lodge rooms and suites, cottage rooms and two-bedroom cabins, multiple restaurants, spa services, indoor and outdoor pools and millions of acres to explore right out your doorstep.
#3 Enjoy the Open Road
When you are choosing to rent a car for your next trip, Travel Today recommends enjoying the open road by choosing a Jeep Wrangler Sport Unlimited. Whenever we have touched down in Las Vegas to go to Zion National Park, we have picked up a Jeep Wrangler from National Rental Car and have had a great experience.
