OUR BUSHCRAFT EXPERT EXPLAINS HOW MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING CAMPING AND LOOKING TO EXPLORE THE WILDS
Adventure travel has become more mainstream because satellite communication is much more affordable now, meaning that people can communicate with family or send out SOS signals from anywhere. Open fires are becoming increasingly tolerated as land owners who rent campsites understand that sitting around a campfire
appeals to people in a very primeval way and is therefore a key part of the camping experience. The ‘glamping’ concept is also something that’s developed over the past 20 years. It has made camping accessible to people who didn’t see themselves as outdoors types.
