Glamping Around the Globe

Even if camping is not your style, you might want to look at “glamping”—the portmanteau of “glamour” and “camping”—which combines luxurious accommodation with the beauty of Mother Nature. Glamping destinations are now available around the world and accommodation ranges from domes to yurts and tiny homes. Here are a few examples:

Just seven miles from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the Fireside Resort offers the amenities of a luxury boutique hotel in the atmosphere of a wooded campground.

At Sossus Under Canvas, tents are protected from the elements by natural stone walls and roofs built from recycle oil drums. The camp is virtually invisible and has a low environmental footprint.
