We have traveled, camped and experienced adventure extensively across the world, and we have marvelled at what our great outdoors has to offer. We know we take our outdoor spaces for granted, but we know that whatever country you call home they are simply beautiful, refreshing, and cathartic. Mountains, rivers, wildlife and history; just think about what the outdoors has to offer and what you can enjoy right on your doorstep. We set up AdventureCampsites.com to help showcase what is right on our doorstep.
But AdventureCampsites.com is just another campsite directory I hear you say?
Oh no! Developing Adventure Campsites has always been about providing inspiration and ideas for people looking for adventurous places to visit, stay and explore. It’s about providing links to adventurous experiences for us all to enjoy, help inspire more people to be amazed by the world around us, and all whilst supporting local campsite and adventure providers with advice, information and support in growing and developing their services and provision.
What makes a campsite? I see bothies and bunkhouses on AdventureCampsites.com too.
A campsite is an area set aside for people to stay overnight in the outdoors, and these sites are generally split into areas, or pitches, where individuals, families and groups can share an allocated space.
The type of overnight experience at a campsite can range from sleeping in bell tents, expedition tents, tipis, safari tents, and yurts, with the latter three options often termed ‘glamping’. You might decide, if your campsite permits, to stay in your own, or hired, campervan or caravan. And more people than ever are now enjoying their camping experience in bothies, bunkhouses, cabins, pods and shepherd’s huts.
What makes a campsite an ‘adventurous campsite’?
Adventure campsites are not about the facilities available on site. The facilities can be as basic or as plentiful and luxurious as provided at the campsite of your choice. Adventure Campsites are those that embrace local adventures and local activities and attractions. Adventure Campsites are about helping visitors enjoy what’s on their doorstep, with local providers, attractions, walks, adventures, and more. And the aim of this website is to bring all these elements together.
Of course, sometimes just relaxing on a campsite and enjoying what the surrounding views have to offer us can sometimes be exactly the adventure that is needed.
Adventure providers, events and activity ideas soon to be part of the website.
We are developing an adventure community, linking adventure campsites with local adventure and activity ideas, local events, and local adventure providers so people can enjoy what is on their doorstep when camping. We also want to support local campsites and partners with marketing ideas and current social media trends and business support. All supporting the aim of inspiring people into the outdoors to enjoy the most amazing campsites and adventures.
