Staying in the same type of resort or hotel, time after time, on every single holiday or trip, can quickly grow quite boring. For some, even ‘off the beaten track’ is still not quite exciting enough. Well luckily, a thing called ‘extreme vacationing’ has emerged. Extreme vacationing can mean many different things, the ‘extreme’ aspect being anything from the activities you do whilst away, to where you actually rest your head at night.
An informed travel agent, such as Away Holidays, will be able to provide more information, and potentially help you arrange and book, your stay in extreme accommodation.
What, exactly, is extreme accommodation, though? Well, something completely removed from the norm, such as the Poseidon Undersea Resort in Dubai. Yes, this resort is exactly as it sounds; located underneath the surface of the water. Many of the hotel rooms, in fact, are actually on the sea floor itself. All of the rooms at the resort have stunning underwater views, giving the guests a real and intimate look at the colourful and exotic life under the sea.
The Juvet Landscape Hotel in Norway offers something quite different, but equally as stunning. The hotel, nestled deep in the rich and lush Norwegian mountains, offers cabins with huge glass walls, providing a breathtaking viewing platform to the incredible landscape. The Juvet Landscape hotel is great for hikers and mountain walkers in the summer months, and winter sports fanatics in winter.
Norway’s neighbour, Sweden, also offers extreme and unusual holiday accommodation. The Sala Silvermine is a popular tourist attraction that also offers accommodation to visitors. Guests can pick between the cosy, aboveground hostel, or the more extreme mine suite; which is 155 metres underground. Whilst to some, sleeping, essentially, in a cave may not seem like the perfect picture of enjoyment, for those looking for something more outside-the-box, the Sala Silvermine could be perfect.
In equally extreme style, Belgrade, Serbia boasts ArkaBarka; a hostel that floats on the river Danube. The hostel offers panoramic views of the surrounding park, as well as cosy, comfortable rooms. For something a little closer to home, you could also consider heading down to Cornwall to stay in one of the magical, traditional Romany caravans, in the picturesque setting of a medieval market town.
Regardless of which type of extreme accommodation tickles your fancy, there is one thing that remains constant; thatit is worth seeking the help of an experienced and professional travel agent. As many happy customers of Away Holidays will suggest, the insight and expertise of a travel agent can be advantageous in getting the best deals and making the most out of your vacation.
