Trend 1: Slow Travel
“Active deceleration” is the motto of the Slow Travel trend. In order to compensate for the stress of everyday life, many long to ‘come down’ and relax. Hiking is ideal for this. The steady, leisurely rhythm lets hikers switch off step by step. The focus is on the need to enjoy the moment and take time for yourself again.
Trend 2: Out into nature
Holidaymakers will prefer a quieter spot in 2020, in contrast to the hustle bustle and noise of city locations. Far away from mass tourism they will head out into untouched nature. They can finally rest and breathe easily. Wave goodbye to civilization for a few days or weeks.
Eurohike travel tip: No matter whether on the mountain, on the beach or in the forest – the fewer people the better, is that your taste? Then Eurohike recommends, for example, a nature park hike in the Dolomites or a hiking holiday on the untouched coast in the Cilento.
Trend 3: Sustainability
Why wander far when good things are so close? The advocates of the sustainable travel trend think so too. In the spirit of climate protection and a positive CO2 balance, many travellers are drawn to nearby regions. The claim: holidays without long journeys by car or plane, and therefore without a guilty conscience.
Trend 4: Micro travel
It should be short and snappy, the 2020 holiday. Many professionals have too little time to go on long trips. The alternative: take a short holiday more often. Micro trips are ideal for those who need a few days away from everyday life and would like to switch off in between.
Trend 5: Digital detox
To be constantly available and a constant flood of stimuli on social media: that is nerve-wracking. This is why the need to finally be ‘offline’ is increasing. You don’t need to constantly look at the smartphone or computer screen. Many therefore, decide to take a break from the ringing and messages on holiday. The smartphone stays at home, or is only switched on in an emergency…
