Glamping is a term that is being heard more and more in the vacation and travel world. It is a trend that started in the UK, but the glamping trend is growing like wildfire in the US.

What exactly is glamping? Glamping blends the two words glamorous and camping together. It describes a style of camping with amenities or luxury services not usually associated with traditional camping. Although the term may be relatively new, the concept has been around for quite a while and is growing into something extraordinary.

Glamping is a type of vacation where you can explore the world through adventure and experiences without giving up the comforts of home. Even with electricity, jacuzzi tubs, high-quality mattresses, and linens, etc. you will without a doubt have incredible access to the outdoors. Glamping will allow you to be as immersed in nature as you want to be.

While most people have seen photos of the beautiful safari tents, numerous other accommodations can be considered glamping. From tipis, beautiful tree houses, shipping containers that have been transformed into a quirky place to stay, tiny homes, yurts, etc. There is no shortage of fantastic glamping structures that will give you a mixture of luxury and the great outdoors.

Glamping. Any Time. Any Place.

Another great thing about glamping is that you can go at any time of the year. Glamping allows you to have the comforts you desire. So, any time is the right time to go glamping. No matter what the season may be, each location has its own interests you can enjoy. Imagine enjoying hot chocolate as you snuggle next to a fire pit on a beautiful winter day. Or, taking long walks down an empty beach. The sky’s the limit, and you can make your trip as luxurious as you desire.
