Most folks don’t really consider the outdoors when they travel abroad. Although the views and countrysides are nice to look at, most people travel with ideas of food, people, a new language, shopping, relaxing. But have you considered that the great outdoors is connected to every part of the world and can provide some highly unique outdoor experiences. There is an Ireland luxury tour operator that I came across who provides exactly this kind of experience to visitors. They are the kind of nimble company that can literally help you figure out what kind of experience you want, then craft the perfect vacation for you. Instead of getting your own reservations, hotels and outings, it’s usually a good idea to have someone in the land who knows where the spots to go with your kids / significant other in order to see the best there is to see with any kind of tour you’re looking for.
The Luxurious Irish Outdoors
There are of course the castles and nice coastlines. But many parts of Ireland, and Scotland for that matter, that are pretty much untouched by people. They’re there in all their majesty as they’ve been for thousands of years. It’s one of the greatest frontiers left on the planet if you ask me. When we took our trip out to the Irish mountains and green pastures of grass and flowers, we immediately realized that this was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to see another part of the world that offers some of the most breathtaking views ever imagined. One of the coolest things we did, while not exactly outdoors, was tour the local cities and mingle with the locals. Meeting others from other cultures is probably equally as important as getting outside and unplugging from technology.
The amazing beauty and smells of the clover fields, the lilies, the misty rain that was constantly around, especially in the forest areas gave us the sense of timelessness. Being transported from every day existence to a place in the world that carries with it a nostalgia of the ages is one of the greatest outdoor experiences ever. And we hope to take our kids out there sooner than later. Although we’ve been to the popular vacation spots for any North American, like Mexico and Jamaica, this was our first place to visit where we weren’t planning on sitting around in bathing suits, eating and drinking and sunbathing the entire time. Now don’t get me wrong, that’s still amazing and fun and certainly has its place. But hopefully this post has inspired you to get outside and see the world as you never have before.
