People holiday for many different reasons. Whether it’s to experience the local culture and cuisine, participate in adrenaline sports, or simply escape from the hustle and bustle of working life, you’ll be able to find the perfect trip for any time of the year.
To truly maximise the peace and relaxation you can experience on your travels, though, why not visit a spa and well-being campsite? Not only can you enjoy the incredible surrounding region, but receive various treatments designed to improve your health.
5 amazing health benefits of a spa camping holiday
Detox and de-stress
One of the major perks of visiting a spa campsite is the opportunity to detox. With activities, nutritious food and detox juices, you’ll be able to cleanse your body of toxins.
Those who find themselves stressed at home or in the workplace will also benefit, thanks to the relaxing treatments available. There will likely be a whole range of activities to take part in, including Yoga, therapeutic massages and swimming, amongst others.
Ease the aches and pains
If you suffer from any medical conditions or simply have aches and pains that won’t seem to go away, a spa retreat can provide the perfect solution.
With a wealth of therapies to choose such as acupuncture, physiotherapy, reflexology and sports massages, specific areas of pain can be targeted and alleviated.
Better your weight loss efforts
Sticking to a strict diet can be difficult at home, with so many temptations all around. For that reason, a spa retreat would be ideal to target any personal weight loss. With a combination of fitness activities and tailored diet plans, you’ll be better positioned to lose a few pounds.
Improve your sleep pattern
Many of us struggle with sleep. Perhaps you toss and turn, never getting your recommended nightly hours in. Spa holidays can be the perfect tonic for treating sleep deprivation, and from massages and reflexology to targeted programmes aiding with posture, you can find the ideal campsite for helping with sleep.
Boost health and fitness
Of course, a spa retreat shouldn’t just be about instant health benefits. Alongside the improvements you’ll witness, the experience should also educate you in maintaining this lifestyle change on your return. As such, you’ll have the opportunity to boost your overall health and fitness with programmes targeted to your personal situation.
To enjoy these serious health benefits of a spa and well-being escape, you don’t have to book an expensive hotel in the Caribbean either. In fact, there are a number of hidden campsites in the UK and Europe, whereby you’ll have the opportunity to relax and put your mind at rest for the full duration.
Alan Rogers has inspected and selected the very best European campsites for spa and well-being. Take a look at your options and visit the official camp websites for more information.

But is this the true picture? Well, no. Glamping has really been around for centuries, since the days of Kublai Khan’s Xanadu, the first really famous glamper’s paradise. His lavish summer dwellings were the epitome of ‘home away from home’, though Cath Kidston adornments were not his thing, as far as we know.
