With new gadgets coming to fruition and unexplored lands entering the mainstream every day, travel trends are always changing. Start with these outdoor luxury travel trends to keep you up to date with what’s in and what’s not.

Chilkoot Trail: Dyea, Alaska & Bennett, British Columbia

The Chilkoot Trail is an amazing 33-mile hike located in Southeast Alaska, taking you through Northwest British Columbia. Historically, the trail played a significant role in the 1890s for ambitious miners heading to the Klondike Gold Rush.

The harsh winters proved inhabitable for the settlers, but today, the beautiful mixture of Alaskan and Canadian landscape leaves a breathtaking adventure for hikers. Along the trail, you’ll experience the coastal rainforest zone, filled with a variety of wildlife and full access to mountainsides, hills, rivers and streams.

Hikers will overcome the “Golden Stairs,” climbing into the alpine zone. To maintain the serenity of the ecosystem, only 50 hikers are allowed to pass through the park per day, so plan ahead and be wary of bears.

 Grilling in the great outdoors

If you dream about grilling bacon for a hearty breakfast or a juicy steak for dinner outside in the great outdoors, a blind stove is a must for your next camping trip. With Cabela’s wide variety you’re bound to find the perfect sized grill for your needs, including folding and portable grills that will fit into large packs for luxurious cooking while backpacking or hiking.

Bay of Fires: Tasmania, Australia
