Are you interested in pursuing a naturist lifestyle? Perhaps you’re already enjoying the perks of being in the buff regularly. Whatever your situation, there are tons of activities and experiences you can take part in while in your birthday suit that you may not be aware of. No longer are you limited to being entertained in just your home or on a designated beach.
If you’re not sure what activities are available — and of course, nudist-friendly, New York Travel company AllTheRooms is here to help.
Festivals are a great way to feel liberated, dance, and be happy! From music, poetry, food, and even beer festivals popping up all over the world, organizers have finally welcomed festival-goers in the nude. Plenty of nude festivals are now being hosted internationally — just remember to bring your cream to protect your skin and something to throw on when it gets chilly.
If you’re in the UK, you may wish to head to Nudefest. Taking place in the beautiful area of Somerset in July each year, the festival celebrates all things nude and is a wonderful community experience.
Nudestock is also worth a mention. The festival is full of bare music-lovers rocking out to blues and guitar music throughout the day. Guests can enjoy deck chairs, locally-brewed beers and tasty food stalls, all without clothes. Nudestock is held in Washington state every August, or for naturists across the pond, held annually in Yorkshire and the East Midlands in the UK.
Who says hiking is only for the clothed? Nude hiking is an excellent way to really connect with nature and feel the wind on your skin. The U.S is home to a whole host of nude-friendly routes, including The Pacific Crest Trail, walks around the Cascade Mountains, and over one million acres in Southern California.
If you decide to venture on a nude hike, be sure to take appropriate action during certain weathers. If it’s sunny, pack sunscreen and mosquito repellent. If the weather is cold or wet, seriously consider if it’s wise to hike. You want to have a great time exploring these beautiful locations and the last thing you need is to be sore in some of the sorest of places…
Clothing-Optional bike rides
If you enjoy exploring on two wheels without clothes slowing you down, luckily clothing-optional and naked bike rides are a thing. The World Naked Bike Ride is one of the biggest sports events in a naturist’s calendar. Every year, nudists from across the globe gather to participate in the ride. Over 70 cities participate in the journey, including London, Cardiff, Chicago, and São Paulo. All you need to do is ditch your clothes, grab a bike and get peddling!
