Why (and Where) You Need to Go on a Mountain Vacation

Vacations in the mountains are not only able to provide visitors with Instagram-worthy photographs but stillness, quaintness and fresh air that can’t be rivalled in the busy world we live in today. If you don’t live anywhere near the mountains, modern technology makes it easy to hop in a plane, fly to your destination, get a car from the airport and enjoy the beautiful serenity that follows.

What Makes Mountain Vacations So Great

The reasons one would want to take a vacation to the mountains are infinite. Aside from being able to fill your social media feed with all of your beautiful photographs and a humble brag or two about how fresh the air is, mountain vacations are great for clearing your mind. This won’t be your laze-on-the-beach-and-drink-pina-coladas-all-day kind of vacation, but instead, your mind will be cleansed (not to mention, less painful the next morning) and your adrenaline will be pumping with all of the adventures you can get into in the mountains.

Not into winter sports? If the idea of cosying next to the fire with your loved one and a big chunky knit blanket sounds good to you, a trip to the mountains might be just what you need.
