Camping is often playing second fiddle in the adventure world – a backdrop to bigger adventures like BASE jumping, mountain climbing, or climbing. But it's rightfully an activity unto itself – especially when you're doing it like the people below. From sand to snow, they've found an interesting place to fall asleep – enjoy!
When you're in Africa, it's not a bad idea to camp on the top of your car. Why? Nobody wants a friendly visit from the local wildlife. Stars dot the sky in the Namib desert.

Now let's talk about someone who didn't forget the tent: Alastair Lee and his team from 'The Last Great Climb', who are sleeping while suspended from a wall in Antarctica.
Ice cave camping
Yes, ice hotels are actually a thing, but true adventurers have long known about the warmth that snow and ice caves can provide.
Bikes and bags
Who needs tents? Over the last few years British adventurer Alastair Humphreys has pioneered the concept of 'microadventures', encouraging people to head into the outdoors and spend a night under the stars for a short, non-expensive adventure fix. Unfortunately in Britain at least, this can also mean under the rain. But that's all part of the experience.
