Our Most Amazing Outdoor Adventure Destinations
Posted 3 months ago
With summer out of the way and the kids back at school, we’re already feeling nostalgic about our holidays, turning our thoughts to what we’d like to do next year. For those who love trekking, camping, skiing or water-based activities – in fact, anyone who’s an outdoor adventure enthusiast – there are a few bucket list destinations that you can’t afford to miss.
These unforgettable places give you the chance to experience culture, different environments and some downtime, whilst enjoying a whole range of exciting active pursuits to keep you stimulated and energized.
From historic treks, natural wonders to wildlife encounters, 2020 could be your year to try one of these amazing destinations. Remember, wherever you travel to, it’s always wise to take an outdoor water filter with you. You don’t want to ruin your holiday by getting ill from drinking suspect water and you never know when you might be cut off from an outdoor water supply. So a trekking water purifier for adventurers or hikers is a must.
The LifeSaver Liberty is the perfect travel companion for your outdoor adventure holiday. It’s our smallest but most versatile product, accommodating 400ml of water for drinking between water-sources, and will purify up to 2,000 litres before needing a new filter. It also has a unique 2-in-1 design that means it doubles up as an in-line filter. The benefit of this is, that not only can you drink directly from it as a personal bottle, you can also use the Liberty to pump purified water into other clean containers so groups or couples travelling together only need to carry one LifeSaver Liberty with them.
The really neat thing about LifeSaver Liberty is that it’s perfect for sustainable travel, helping save these wonderful environments from single use plastic water bottles. Using a LifeSaver Liberty can save 4,000 500ml plastic bottles going to landfill and, at the same time, It saves you money on unnecessary water purchases. That has to be a win, win.
So without further ado, here are our top destinations.
