Cottage rentals, camping stays, outdoor activities, and sports will be in high demand. During the pandemic, the alternative of rural and nature tourism has become increasingly popular. Tourists want to travel to small communities, usually rural, in order to experience their lifestyle and culture or, in some cases, to disconnect from the city.

4. Wellness tourism

Wellness tourism is a direct branch of health tourism that aims to achieve physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being. For this reason, tourists choose destinations that offer activities related to each area, such as yoga, meditation, or spiritual retreats. This type of tourism is becoming more popular as the concept of mindfulness spreads and as society becomes more aware of the importance of connecting with the planet and with ourselves.
