When the corona entered our lives in March last year, no one could believe that it would last this long and that the world would literally turn upside down. We remember pictures of the big cities: New York, Paris, London that looked empty and as if life had stopped. With the arrival of summer 2020 things started to improve but still our daily life we remember was far away. We had hoped that the new year would bring our old lives on the trail but it didn’t happen. Despite the fact that we all miss movement and travel, the protection of life and the prevention of the spread of coronavirus are in the forefront.
Unlike large, collective trips, individual tourism in nature can be a good alternative for those who have not had camping experience so far.
Why is camping safe?
First of all, because you stay in nature and outdoors, which significantly contributes to the slower spread of the virus. Furthermore vitamin D, some research has already shown that the vitamin D you take while outdoors significantly contributes to the prevention of corona. During camping, you will probably make fewer contacts than staying in a hotel, motel or other accommodation. Use your belongings (sleeping bags, towels, utensils, dishes, etc.). You are completely individual in this type of vacation and you have minimal contacts with the camp staff and other guests.
