For those of us who just can't get enough of the great outdoors, camping trips are the ideal break away. Hunting down the best camping sites, or going as wild and rugged as possible may have already started to become all too familiar. If you're looking for something a little bit different and perhaps a little more adventurous, there are still some interesting options for camping experts.

Survivalist camping

Survivalist camping is all about learning to survive in the wild, which can be life-changing for those who want to push themselves to the limit. The aim of these trips is to preserve traditional living skills and enhance people's experiences in the natural world. These camping breaks can be challenging and enjoyable at the same time, especially for experienced campers.

Winter camping

While winter camping can be very cold and frosty, those who go winter camping like to enjoy cups of hot chocolate while wrapped up in their cosy tent. Setting up camp in pristine snowy landscapes is what winter campers live for, but there are a few fundamentals to bear in mind: warm clothing, winter gear and set up in a safe and avalanche-free zone. Having cover for emergency medical expenses and camping holiday cover is particularly important for camping holidays.

Bicycle camping

For bicycle camping, your bike is your transport and camping mule. You can go anywhere at any time, but your supplies have to be packed on the back of your bike. Doing this is a balance of packing lightly but robustly – you have to pack the essentials such as a tent whilst making sure it's not too heavy to ride with at all times.

Canoe camping

This North American invention involves not finding your camping destinations by road but by water. Your camping gear sits nestled in the back or middle of your canoe while you and any camping partners paddle your way across the countryside. While some buy the canoe and gear, there are some places that allow you to rent both parts.
