Glamping: the New Art of Camping to Embrace

Glamping: the New Art of Camping to Embrace

The idea of escaping the hectic and chaotic daily life and exploring the outdoors sounds pretty appealing to many people. However, not all people are ready for real camping: if you have never built a fire or put up a tent, all these nuances of surviving as a camper are quite challenging.

Yes, the modern campsites are equipped with practically everything but traditional camping still can be tricky: you must be ready to sacrifice all your creature comforts (hot water, electricity, and the warm bed) and enjoy the questionable food and smelly sleeping bags. For all the people who find the idea of camping appealing but want to use all the normal amenities during the camping trip, glamping can be a great option.

Glamping is a combination of the words “glamourous” and “camping” (sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it?) and combines camping with having access to all the normal creature comforts which are normally not accessible to campers.

To make it possible, glamping resorts (they are similar to campsites) offer their guest different accommodations which are much more comfortable than camping tents: there is electricity, Wi-Fi (how about betting at IviBet login or watching your favorite comedies), heating, air conditioning, warm beds, and they are also often equipped with private bathrooms. Glamping accommodations may vary greatly, but all of them are much more comfortable than camping tents. Bell tents at glamping resorts have enough space for a person or a family and look like hotel rooms.

Creature comforts don’t make luxurious glamping less authentic than camping. Well, it is different, but it doesn’t mean glamping doesn’t let you reconnect with nature. To make the whole experience more authentic, owners of glamping resorts provide their guests with different outdoor activities such as hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, and river rafting.

Location of glamping resorts often lets you be immersed in nature and if you want you can always leave your luggage in your comfortable glamping tent, cabin, or pod and start exploring outdoors. You can even build a fire and cook food if you want. However, if the quality of camping foods will be questionable you can always get back to the glamping resort and go to the restaurant with full-course meals or cook food in your kitchenette. So you can always vary the level of comfort you want during your glamping trip.

Glamping as the new art of camping is relatively new but the popularity of it has grown over the last years, so there are many different glamping resorts in the world. You can find tents and tipis for 40-50 dollars per night or decide to rent luxury cabins or eco domes for 200-3000 dollars.

Many glamping accommodations look ethical and therefore living there has a special vibe (yurts, tipis, igloos). Glamping houses can be unique: from safari tents, and wilderness resorts to treehouses and pods looking like wine barrels. Their design makes them look like part of the landscape and it makes the whole experience even more authentic.

If you want to decide between traditional camping and glamping you must understand that both camping and glamping trips may be enjoyable and entertaining, and both trips make you get back to nature and guarantee you a great experience. Just ask yourself what you are looking for and go ahead! Don’t forget to book your tree house or cozy chalet in advance and be ready for the real “wow” factor!
