Both the WTTC report and the report cited above said they expect travellers will continue gravitating to some beachy locales . Places like Maui , Hawaii , and even Gatlinburg , Tennessee , are top-searched destinations in the United States . While outdoor trips in America are hot , many other international destinations celebrate nature and continue to be top performers . Costa Rica remains a top seller across the industry for 2022 , as does a destination with a cold , volcanic sand beach : Iceland !
The WTTC “ Trending in Travel ” report has some fascinating findings about outdoor travel in 2022 :
● Fifty-two per cent of travellers say they are more likely to take an outdoor trip now than they were prior to the pandemic .
● Forty-seven per cent of polled travellers want to experience nature on their next trip .
Look for tours that showcase the best of the outdoors and nature . For a breath of fresh air this year , consider these options : feel the sand between your toes on a beach ; look out over the mountains of the southeastern US ; enjoy game drives searching for wildlife across the African grasslands ; read a book under rustling palms on a private beach .
