After a long, cold winter, going out into nature is a great way to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. There are several options available for people who are looking to spend time outdoors in a different way. Consider the options below for your next outdoor adventure:


Many people like the idea of staying outdoors, but really don't like "roughing it." For campers in this category, a new trend is taking center stage called "glamping." This idea takes basic camping and makes it glamorous. Companies are popping up across the continent to help people camp in style. With a simple phone call and swipe of your card, the company sets up a camp site fit for a king. Instead of regular tents, think gazebo with portable chandelier lighting on a platform for no more dark, dirty nights. Rather than trying to keep warm in a sleeping bag on the lumpy ground, sleep in style on a real bed with a comfortable mattress. One of the best parts is that they come and take everything down for you when you're done. No more carrying around all of your supplies. With so many options available, you don't ever have to leave the comforts of home behind. 

Deep Sea Fishing

Deep sea fishing is a fun activity that is growing in popularity with vacationers everywhere. This form of fishing is different from fly fishing or sitting on a lake in a boat. Instead, you take a chartered boat out into deeper ocean waters and bring home large amounts of fresh fish to enjoy over the next year. While the price tag is a bit larger to cover the expenses of fishing tackle, gas, and a guide, the experience is one that you and your family will never forget.

Just about everyone has heard about backpacking around Europe, but did you know that many people also backpack around North America? Sites are popping up everywhere that help travellers find the best cities to visit. In fact, Montreal is right at the top of the list for backpackers. For just $53.86 a day, a backpacker could find lodgings in a hostel, two public transportation rides, one famous landmark or attraction, three budget meals, and three beers, desserts, or other entertainment options per day. This provides a great new way to explore.

Camping, fishing, and backpacking are all great outdoor activities. Try one of these twists on the original to experience it in a whole new way. Choose one or do them all, but no matter what you choose to do, these experiences will last a lifetime. Who knows? You might even gain a new hobby.
