Traveling doesn’t always have to be a luxurious trip. For the outdoor lover, even an average hotel can seem too stuffy for a vacation. If you want to get out there and have a first hand experience wherever you travel, here’s a rustic list of places to visit for you.

See-through Stays

For anyone who wants to go off-grid without being entirely vulnerable to your surroundings, Australia’s “glampsite” with bubble tents is a must-visit. A transparent, inflatable bubble will become your tent as you experience Australia’s crisp sky. Want to sleep under the stars without fear of rain, insects, and other threats? A bubble tent will give you exactly that.

Australia is just rolling out bubble tents, while France, Spain, and Iceland already have a see-through stay hotel. If the outback of Australia isn’t your scene, perhaps a woodsy view in one of France’s bubble tents will do.

Treehouse Treasure

The U.S. is full of lush forests that allow travelers to truly enjoy the great outdoors. Vacation Idea brings us a list of the best treehouse hotels in the United States with a multitude of options. From Virginia to Texas, all the way to California, you’d be surprised just how many treehouse hotels the U.S. has to offer.

For the adventurous folks, the Cypress Valley Canopy Tours based in Texas has a range of accommodations. Treehouses, yurts, and even a ranch house are options to nestle in between the cypress trees. This company even offers ziplining tours of the canopy trees.

Northern Lights and Arctic Nature

It may be cold in Iceland but you can enjoy the cozy warmth from the inside of a glass igloo at the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finland. With tours like husky safaris and reindeer safaris or even a hunt to find the northern lights, you’ll have a dream vacation in the wintery world of Finland. There is even a honeymoon option for the romantics that love an adventurous trip.

AirBnB American Yurts

One of the fastest up and coming companies, AirBnB quickly became a go-to for travelings– offering a traveling tool that not only saves money but makes for a much more intimate stay. Homeowners all over the globe are offering their space to travelers for rent.

Among the unique homes available for rent are yurts. Much like a “glamping tent”, yurts allow people the experience of camping without the hassle of pitching a tent and bringing tools and gadgets. Within the United States, there are plenty of yurts that travelers love. These dream yurts are perfect for anyone who wants a rustic stay with their comfort accounted for.

Africa’s Safari Hotel

The Safari Collection in Africa offers a one-of-a-kind experience for travelers where it’s possible to wake up with a giraffe greeting you from the window of your room. Giraffe Manor is a boutique hotel that sits on 12 private acres, surrounded by 140 acres of African forest. A herd of Rothschild giraffe make an appearance in the morning and evening. This iconic hotel draws not only outdoor lovers, but also animal lovers that want wild encounters during their trip.
