Reasons to Love Camping Holidays

Updated on February 22, 2015

There are many reasons why camping is a healthy and enjoyable way to spend your holidays. If you are trying to convince reticent luxury lovers amongst your family and friends of the joys of camping then here is a useful list of reasons you can use to persuade them to join you:

It is Extremely Inexpensive:

This reason alone should clinch it. Camping is extremely affordable – sometimes even completely free. You can combine camping with a hiking holiday and once you're there, pretty much your only expense will be food. Alternatively, the money you are saving on accommodation could go towards some extra luxury for the rest of the holiday – swanky meals out, for example.

Camping is good for your health:

Camping is good for you – all that fresh air can be intoxicating. You will be able to breathe as you feel the weight of daily stress lifting from your shoulders. Imagine opening your tent and breathing in the air on a lovely sunny morning. Wherever you are in the world, there will be beautiful campsites, both wild and managed, where you can pitch up and relax. Don't like the dirt? You may be surprised to hear that there is actually a harmless sort of bacteria in soil that scientists say could make us happier! Getting out there will probably be a bit of gentle exercise

The Scenery:

Camping can give you access to some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world in a way that other accommodation options just cannot. There is nothing to beat the feeling of waking up in your own little piece of paradise, whether you stay next to a beautiful beach, a rugged coastline, on a mountain peak or high plateau, in a hidden vale or an ancient forest, beside an historic city or in the ancient wilds. Just imagine the beautiful landscapes that you could access.

Flora and Fauna:

If you love plants and animals then camping is one of the very best ways to see them close up. I have camped near rare flowers in the mountains. I have woken up to a buzzard resting on the ridge pole. I have opened my tent in the morning on a windy coastline to see dolphins playing off the coast, and seals basking on rocks nearby. An elk has nearly flattened my tent in a forest. These are just some of the wonderful sights of the natural world that you can see when camping.

Peace and Tranquillity:

If you are in search of true peace and quiet and really want to get away from it all, camping really is the best option. It is extremely easy to find yourself a tranquil pitch away from the crowds. There are camp sites from everyone, whether you are looking for a calm but sociable family site, a romantic hideaway for two, a base for exploration and adventure, or just cheap tour accommodation.

So even if you have never been before, and can't imagine roughing it in the great outdoors, you should give it a go, and discover how magical it really can be.
