Are you the rugged, wilderness type of traveler but your travel partner much prefers the comforts of a luxury stay? Believe it or not, the perfect compromise does exist. Enter glamping: where nature meets modern luxury.
Established as an abbreviated name for “glamorous camping”, glamping has become wildly popular in the last decade to accommodate travelers who are looking for a unique, off-the-beaten path experience, but don’t want to give up on the amenities of a hotel stay. Glampers worldwide are drawn by the idea of being able to connect with nature, but without having to deal with the hassle of regular camping, like pitching a tent and relying on battery-operated flashlights.
Glamping accommodations may include tents, lodges, huts, cottages, and even treehouses and yurts. They are often equipped with furniture, electricity, running water, and some even have mini kitchenettes. Glamping sites may offer activities like hiking, rafting and horseback riding to truly make the experience once in a lifetime. You can be as picky as you want when choosing the destination for your next glamping trip, as there are places to glamp on pretty much every continent! The cost of a glamping stay can range anywhere from $50 to $3000 per night, depending on the size and extravagance of the lodging.
The appeal of glamping is to get closer to nature, therefore some glamp-grounds take extra care to make their accommodations eco-friendly by using sustainable materials and making sure to use heating systems that have a low environmental impact. Although most glamping sites have running water and shower facilities, it’s always a good idea to come prepared with some extra hygiene products. Eco-friendly Combat Wipes are 100% biodegradable, and the perfect accompaniment for your next glamping adventure to help you stay clean in the outdoors while protecting the nature you came to enjoy.
If you are looking for your next glamping stay but unsure which destination is for you, there are many online recourses available to help you decide that include parameters such as price, sustainability, proximity to a city, and of course, customer reviews.
