Survivalist Vacations Becoming Increasingly Popular


Based on the number of survivalist vacation packages out there today, we think it’s pretty fair to say that survivalist vacations are more popular than ever before. In fact, one quick Google, and you’re presented with everything from surviving on a desert island to living in the mountains – two things which could prove useful should a real-life Hunger Games ever happen. But just why are these vacation styles becoming popular? That’s what we’re going to explore in this article.

1. It’s Thrilling

Yes, you could just take a vacation in the sun, and spend your days relaxing on the beach and sipping cocktails, but where’s the fun in that? If you choose to take a survivalist vacation, you’ll definitely get a thrilling kick. Imagine being dropped off in the middle of the woods, with nothing but your survival gear from by your side. You’ve got to make a fire, build a shelter, and find fresh drinking water, all before the darkness sets in on your first day. Fail to do this, and you’ll be spending a very long and cold night in the outdoors. No-one said it would be easy, but it’s definitely going to be thrilling!

2. Learn How to Stay Alive

If you book a survivalist vacation through a company, it’s unlikely you’ll be expected to tough it out on your own. Instead, you’ll be taught a wide range of survival skills while in a group setting. You will then be expected to put these skills to good use during your trip. If you’ve ever fancied yourself as a bit of a Bear Grylls, but haven’t really known where to start, this kind of vacation can be ideal. You’ll be taught how to survive in the wilderness with nothing but the basic tools by your side. By the end of your vacation, you’ll probably be 20 pounds lighter, but you’ll also have the knowledge you need to survive should the zombies ever come. Trips range from 3 days to a month, so you don’t have to jump in at the deep end – unless you want to, of course.

3. Kill the Zombies!

Talking of zombies – some survivalist vacations are actually designed to teach you how to survive in a zombie apocalypse. Ever wanted to learn how to wield and use a sword correctly? Ever wondered how easy it is to score a zombie headshot with a bow and arrow? Well, now you can find out. You’ll be taught how to identify and find the best melee weapons, how to shoot arrows from a crossbow, and how to totally smoke a walker without causing yourself any harm! Sound like fun? It’s not only fun, but it’ll also teach you all the skills you need to survive when the dead return to life!

Survivalist vacations can be as simple as heading out into the woods on your own for a week or signing up for a group package that teaches you everything you need to know about survival. They’re definitely unique, but they’re becoming increasingly popular for good reason.
