Best Adventure Travel Tips
From cruising across the savannah in Guyana on ATVs to exploring caves by candlelight in Guatemala, adventure travel always gets your blood pumping. The passion for adventure travel can take you 1000 meters high, to the tops of mountains, or 40 meters down, into the dark depths of the ocean.
For us, adventure travel is any travel that pushes you physically and emotionally, challenging you to conquer your fears. Unlike those (much-needed) relax days by the pool, adventure travel exhilarates you and leaves you with an appreciation for simply being alive.
Here are a list of our top adventure travel tips to help you with your next trip:
ADVENTURE TRAVEL INSPIRATION
ADVENTURE TRAVEL PACKING LIST
LifeStraw bottle - If you’re heading anywhere that might not have safe drinking water, the LifeStraw bottle and filter is a must. They also have a one-for-one program where for every bottle purchased they provide a child one school year of safe drinking water! Check out our trip to Mexico with LifeStraw where we got to visit a school and install water filters!
Buff - You may feel like you’re on survivor wearing one these, but they are incredibly handy. Whether you’re using it to mop up sweat on a hot day, or to cover your mouth and nose on a long motorbike trip, you’ll want a buff! The UV protection also helps you stay out of the sun and avoid sunburns.
Daypack - This is an awesome backpack for day long hikes or just cruising around town. It’s water resistant, tear resistant and comes with a lifetime warranty. It’s a perfect pack for short adventures.
Rain jacket - We love our rain shell jackets from Patagonia. They are light enough to not feel super hot in the humid Bali rain and awesome for layering over warmer clothes in the cold Estonian snow.
Do I need travel insurance?
A common saying in the travel world is, "If you can't afford travel insurance, then you can't afford to travel!"
Buying travel insurance isn't about being overly cautious, or scared to travel, it's about being prepared if something goes wrong. It could be something as simple as losing your camera or phone, or it could be covering expensive medical bills if you get injured or sick.
Don't be scared ... just be prepared!
