A beginner’s guide to ‘glamping’

Who said spending the night outdoors had to be grimy and dark? For those who want to experience nature but are afraid to get dirty, why not try glamping?

Glamping is a word play between glamour and camping. It is a form of camping that features accommodation and activities that are luxurious as compared to traditional camping. It’s a different experience, as glampers become one without going back to basics. Glampers do not need to cramp themselves on a small sleeping bag, but they experience luxury outdoors.

Where do people stay when they go glamping? Instead of setting up a tent themselves, they can settle for other accommodation options like a geodesic dome, an airstream caravan, or a tree house.

Glampsites are usually free-standing, or can be assembled and moved easily unlike a traditional accommodation. It may be situated outdoors, but it must come with comfort. Glampsites often have luxurious beds, bathrooms, and electricity. Different glampsites have different rates, depending on the features of the accommodation.

Glampers, even if they enjoy luxury, can still do outdoor activities like hiking, white water rafting, and canoeing. There are many wonderful glamping sites in the United States, as well as in Europe and Africa. Glamping is for everyone who want to experience the glorious outdoors.
