Why the latest travel trend involves getting away from it all

Dull office cubicles, artificial lighting and social media have resulted in us wanting to step into the great outdoors and embrace the latest trend in travel – rewilding. Rewilding involves getting back to nature with a dose of adventure. According to the Pinterest 100 Report, which focuses on the latest trends for 2020, searches for nature travel have risen by 253 per cent. Holidaymakers are now searching for holidays in the wild that are as varied as fly fishing and bushcraft camping. If you want to leave the modern world behind and go off the grid this year, take a look at some of these getaways…


INDIA

With a tagline that says ‘beyond the last hotel’ you know you are going to get away from it all at Kaafila Camps in India. Your pop-up luxury camp will travel with you as you travel through the wilds of India, visiting tiger parks and discovering hidden forts and temples.



USA

Channel Brad Pitt’s movie A River Runs Through It and go fly fishing at The Resort at Paws Up, Montana. Sleep in one of their new treehouses that launch this year.


SCOTLAND

Explore the Outer Hebrides in Scotland by sea kayak. Visit pristine deserted islands, wild coastlines and white-sand beaches.


MONGOLIA

For one of the most unique places on Earth to master a downward dog, try your hand at Ger Yoga in Mongolia. Perched atop of Mongke Tengri Hill in the Okhon Valley National Park you will find the most unique yoga studio.


AFRICA

Take this trend in your stride and book a walking safari in the Serengeti. Leave the rest of the world behind as you go off-the-beaten track for a trek through the bush. End the day with a spot of stargazing around a campfire.
