You’re preparing for the most thrilling, yet rejuvenating vacation experience you’ve ever been on. After some careful research and consideration, you’ve decided to combine your love of luxuries like spa services, five-star hotels, fine dining, and comforting accommodations with your desire to explore the world in a new way. Mixing luxury and adventure into your next trip ensures you can have a good time all the way around.
There’s just one thing. What in the world do you pack? Not only do you need the right pieces for the adventurous aspects of your trip, but you need a few outfits for the more luxurious moments.
Durable Bags – Whether you’ve decided to go hiking, zip lining, fishing, camping, or white water rafting on your luxury adventure vacation, you’ll need durable bags to hold all of your gear in. Backpacks are often best designed for this kind of vacation. They are designed to hold a lot of adventure supplies. It’s also convenient in that you can place it on your back and move around hands-free.
Activewear – Most likely the activities you’ve chosen are going to keep you moving for the better part of the day. The key is to make sure that you’re comfortable during your excursions. Pack a variety of activewear like shorts, t-shirts, leggings, tanks, gym socks, and running sneakers. Thanks to athleisure, you’ll have no issues finding pieces that combine function and style.
Dinner Attire – If you’re also going to indulge in the finer things in life during your trip then you may need to pack more than yoga pants and t-shirts. You’ll also need to pack something a bit more dressy or formal. Make sure to check if any of the restaurants on your list have a dress code.
Sun Protection – No matter what time of year you plan on taking this trip, you’ll want to pack sun protection. Since most of these activities take place outdoors, sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses are a must to protect your skin from the damaging rays.
Phone Protection & Battery Pack – Of course you’ll be bringing your smartphone along with you to take photos during your vacation. Make sure that you’ve packed the appropriate protection to keep your phone safe. If you plan on being near water, for example, getting a waterproof cover is ideal in case your phone falls in. If you’re going to be hiking, not only would you want a durable phone case, but you may also want to invest in a hook or phone clip so the phone doesn’t fall and get damaged on the rough terrain. Protecting your phone is one piece, but don’t miss a great photo or get lost because your phone ran out of battery.
First Aid Kit – You hope to learn new things and go on exciting adventures without getting hurt, but accidents tend to happen. Rather than ruining your trip by having to head to the nearest hospital, pack your own first aid kit. Having things on hand like bandages, ointment, and cleaning solutions can treat minor injuries on the spot.
Water Bottle – Being outside participating in physical activities is fun, but also draining. It is imperative to make sure that you have the proper nourishment along the way. You can either bring bottled spring water or invest in a quality plastic water bottle and fill it to the brim before your first activity to keep you cool along the way.
Ready to be pampered while also creating memories that will last a lifetime? A luxury adventure vacation is just what you need. Just make sure that you don’t forget to bring any of the things listed above.
