Cheapflights.ca Seeks Out the Best Camping Sites Worldwide. Victoria Day means summer's coming and the outdoors is once again open for business. To help those who have been waiting with baited breath for summer adventure, the team at Cheapflights.ca, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, has compiled its Top 10 Camping Destinations across the Globe. Get ready to gear up and take your friends and family back to nature this summer. For those who feel camping requires a high altitude to be a real adventure, check out these sky-scraping spots from Cheapflights.ca's Top 10 Camping Destinations across the Globe: [yen] Cotopaxi National Park - Cotopaxi, Ecuador - If you're thinking about taking your outdoor adventure south of the equator, consider Cotopaxi National Park, located just outside of Ecuador's capital city. The snow-capped Cotopaxi volcano sets the scene, along with wild llamas and gently rolling hills. Hiking is most popular, whether it's a short trip or a multi-day hike, but there's plenty to do in the way of horseback riding and mountain biking too. [yen] Glacier National Park - Montana, United States - Glacier National Park sweeps across the U.S.-Canada border, taking over two mountain ranges, hundreds of lakes, and an incredible array of flora and fauna. Camping in the park is on a first-come, first-served basis, so visitors should reserve campsites well in advance. The wait is definitely worth it. Fly-fishing is a popular pastime, but if you love to hike, there are upwards of 700 miles of exciting trails. [yen] Haleakala National Park - Maui, Hawaii, United States - Most might head to the nearest beach resort in Maui, but for the adventure traveller, we suggest pitching a tent in Haleakala National Park. The highlight of the park is the Haleakala volcano, which offers a great space for stargazing, hiking and watching the sunrise. Farther into the park is the rainforest region of Kipahulu, where visitors can hike to the Waimoku Falls and swim the pools of Ohe'o. Cabins are also available in the park through a lottery system. [yen] Jasper National Park - Alberta, Canada - The largest of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, Jasper National Park was deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. It is now a hot destination for visitors looking to camp, hike, raft, kayak and fish. There are plenty of campgrounds to choose from, all of which have firewood and bear-proof lockers. Insider tip: Make time to visit the Miette Hot Springs and the Athabasca Falls. [yen] Denali National Park - Alaska, United States - Alaska is known as America's last frontier, and Denali is at the centre of this incredible oasis. Visitors can stay at one of seven campgrounds throughout the park and bear witness to a pristine landscape with glacial mountain ranges, alpine forests and clear rivers and lakes. The wildlife in Denali is rampant with black bears, grizzlies, moose, sheep, marmots, wolfs and loads of other animals. To go beyond the mountain tops for outdoor fun, try one of our other picks: Lake District National Park - Cumbria, England, United Kingdom; Sangla Valley - Sangla, India; Blue Mountains National Park - New South Wales, Australia; Pacific Rim National Park Reserve - Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada and Maasai Mara National Reserve - Kenya.
