Organizing an Alternative Getaway for 2021

Most of us haven’t had the chance to get away in 2020. The coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic has seen countries restricting access to their borders, governments advising against travel and implementing various other rules, restrictions and guidelines in a bid to slow the spread of the virus. This doesn’t, however, mean that none of us are going to ever travel again. You can still plan for future trips and get things organised for good times in the future. Here a few alternative trips you might want to consider! Sure, beach holidays are fun and we might want to jet off for a relaxing lounge around the pool once all of this is over, but there are plenty more activities you might want to take into consideration too!


The first alternative form of getaway we’re going to take a look at is camping. Why? Camping is likely to be one of the first types of getaway that will be possible. You’re self contained and don’t have to come into contact with others to have a great camping trip! Now, camping is a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and to immerse yourself in nature. This is a novelty that few of us regularly indulge in. Of course, it’s best to make sure you’re fully prepared, so planning and getting ready for a camping trip can take a little time. Make sure to research different types of tents to find the best within your budget. Learn how to perfectly pitch a tent. Research campsites and determine which has the amenities to help you to have a nice time. Alternatively, you can even look into camper vans if you want a few more luxuries!

Water Sports

It’s been awhile since many of us have been in the sea. So, if you’re craving the surf and to splash about, a water sports getaway could be god for you. Most popular beaches will feature some sort of hut offering water sports equipment or activities. There are likely to be multiple options, ranging from banana boats to jet ski hire and much more. Just make sure to bear your personal safety in mind at all times and make sure that the company provides you with a life jacket if you’re going to be heading out into deep waters. Wear specific items of clothing that will keep you dry and warm, like those from Jetpilot.

Winter Sports

An alternative to water sports is winter sports. These are snow and ice based sports that tend to take place in colder countries. Perhaps the most popular option is skiing. But there are other options such as snowboarding, snowmobiling and more. Of course, you’re going to have to wrap up warm! Whether you are a beginner who’s never tried winter sports before or a pro who’s been heading away every year for years on end, there will be an appropriate option for you!

These are just a few alternative getaways you might want to take into consideration when you start planning future travels. Hopefully, one or two (or even all three) will pique your interest and get your imagination going!
