If you enjoy the thought of spending time in the great outdoors, you might want to take your next camping trip up a notch. From the heights of the Bavarian Alps in Pfronten, Germany, an adventure camp named Waldseilgarten offers not only rope climbing, archery and igloo building, but also alpine tours, and most impressively the ‘sleep in a portaledge’ experience.
For the faint-hearted, you can choose to dip your toes in the outdoor sleeping experience by spending the night on a seven-metre high platform suspended between trees. Otherwise, you can sleep among the stars dangling from a portaledge, or a floating tent, suspended from a thick branch, and you’ll have to climb up and down a rope to get to your ‘bed’. For the avid rock climbers, you can choose to pitch your floating tent from a rock wall hundreds of metres above the ground.
