Tahoe's Basecamp Hotel Ranks #3 in the 28 Best Trips of 2016

by Placerville Newswire / Mar 03, 2016 / comments

From epic skiing in Antarctica to a lazy beer-fueled canoe trip in North Carolina, these are the best places to visit this year

Each year, Outside Online sends their editors and writers on a mission to find the destinations on the vanguard of the travel. The major takeaway from our 28 favorites of 2016? The entire world is getting more adventurous. Travelers are pushing boundaries, from seeking out newly accessible Cuban bars to touring North Carolina breweries—by canoe. In years past, a cruise around the Antarctic involved lots of gawking at icebergs. Today, the same cruise has you booting up and ripping untouched snow with mountaineers Andrew McLean and Chris Davenport.

But don’t think for a second that this trend is limited to far-flung and expensive trips: small towns like Bentonville, Arkansas, are investing in world-class mountain bike trails—maintained by professional crews!—and innovative, hard, and fun-as-hell races like Quincy, California’s Grinduro are popping up just about everywhere. There's never been a better time to get out there—and this is the definitive guide to a year well traveled.

In 2012, Christian Strobel turned a decrepit motel in South Lake Tahoe into Basecamp, a boutique lodge for adventure travelers, with fire pits and GoPro screenings. Now he’s giving Tahoe City a Basecamp of its own, with a yoga studio, in-room bike racks, and concierges with climbing beta—all located less than 20 minutes from the slopes. —Megan Michelson
