Travellers are a lot more demanding these days. In the times when categorization is no longer possible (or needed) and when all attention gets focused on whatever is new and different, we started changing our outlook on vacation. It’s still not hard to be original but, you can always exceed expectations.
Have you ever wanted to do something way different, try something uncommon, something you have never done before? Have you ever thought about hotel stays as adventures?
We all know about boutique hotels and themed hotels…that’s not it. More and more people are opening hotels in unusual places and it’s becoming rapidly popular.
You are familiar with
castles turning into hotels (they have been that way for years in Europe; some located in: Austria, Slovenia, Italy, France, Spain…) as well as
historic buildings like monasteries, churches and train stations (located in: Sweden, France, Ireland, Norway, UK, Italy, The Netherlands,Turkey, Belgium, Spain, Hungary…)
It seams like everything can turned into a hotel…and the crazier, the better!
lighthouses (The Netherlands, Norway…)
tree houses (Sweden, Germany, Turkey)
caves (Sweden, France, Turkey)
they can even be found in forests (Sweden)
underwater or floating (Turkey, Sweden, The Netherlands, Switzerland)
made from ice (Switzerland, Andorra, Sweden, Finland)
as prisons (Sweden, Slovenia)
or inside planes and trains (The Netherlands, Sweden, UK)
even inside pipes in parks :D
As you can see, Scandinavia is at the leading edge at the moment. In my opinion, some ideas are quite interesting…why not change the way we look at accommodation and travel. If it can be more fun, more exciting, and if you are up for it, you already have a good choice. It’s definitely changes the concept of travel and adventure…
Are you up for this kind of adventure?
