While COVID-19 vaccines are rolling out fast, travel restrictions are likely to remain in place for much of the 2021 summer travel season. Though some cities and nations are opening up their borders for vaccinated travelers, many families will likely be looking for domestic adventures to enjoy, as well as ones that allow them to practice safe social distancing while still getting away from home and creating some unique and special memories after spending so much time in isolation.
Outdoor adventures, as well as private guided tours, are two great options for families, couples, singles, and even corporate trips this summer. Combine the two, and you have a recipe for a safe, healthy, exciting way to celebrate the end of 2020.
Looking to learn more about booking your own 2021 summer vacation? Keep reading to learn a few tips for choosing a healthy vacay option, and how to make the most of your freedom from isolating at home.
Travel with Your Household
If you have someone in your group who hasn’t received a vaccine, or if you want to take extra precautions this summer, the best thing that you can do is stick to traveling with your direct household, or those that you’ve already been isolating with for the past year or so.
While renting a vacation home and staying put might be a good way to do that, if you’re like most people, you’re ready to do something other than watch TV and enjoy a few board games.
Luckily, there’s another way to get away with only your immediate family or close friends.
A luxury private custom tour is the perfect way to escape the day-to-day without putting your health at risk. With a variety of tours and destinations to choose from, there’s an option for every family. Each private custom tour can accommodate between 8 and 15 people, depending on the type of tour.
Hit the Highlights with an Experienced Guide
Avoiding crowded tourist hotspots is a good way to ensure that you’re able to stay safe and socially distanced during your summer getaway. But if you’re dreaming of hiking Angels Landing at Zion National Park, watching Old Faithful shoot 135 feet in the air at Yellowstone, or seeing the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, you don’t need to wait another year to plan your dream trip.
Instead, hit the highlights with an experienced guide leading the way.
When you book with Utah Luxury Tours, you’ll have an expert tour guide there to help you navigate busy tourist destinations with ease. Whether you’re beating the crowds or taking back routes, your guide will help you stay safe and healthy during your visit.
Continue Following CDC Guidelines
The CDC is advising that even those who are fully vaccinated should continue to follow CDC recommendations. Safe travel tips include wearing a mask over your nose and mouth, keeping a 6-foot distance from others, and washing your hands frequently.
In addition to helping you avoid crowds, another service your expert guide provides during your trip is making sure that everyone in your group follows CDC guidelines, as well as any additional health guidelines your group chooses to follow. Whether they’re sanitizing your transportation or taking payments to limit your close contact interactions in restaurants and hotels, your guide is there every step of the way to offer a helping hand to keep you and your family or friends safe.
Give Your Immune System a Boost
Traveling, even before COVID-19 began to spread, can wreak havoc on your immune system. Exposure to new allergens your body isn’t used to, germs in airports and other high contact areas, and losing sleep as you cross time zones can leave you feeling under the weather.
Starting a week or two before your vacation, give your immune system an added boost to ward off any illnesses. Some simple ways to give your body a boost ahead of your trip include:
- Eating a healthy diet that includes plenty of vegetables, fruits, and leafy greens
- De-stressing with relaxing activities like yoga, and avoiding high-stress environments
- Staying hydrated, including while you’re on your vacation
- Avoid alcohol, especially close to your flight out of town
- Get plenty of quality sleep
During your vacation, continue to hydrate. Get the most out of your trip, but try to get a good night’s sleep each day of your vacation. This will help keep your body running at its best.
