Love the idea of tent camping but hate the dirt, grime, disgusting bathrooms and uncomfortable sleeping arrangements?
Boutique camping, or “glamping” is a new and exciting way of camping that has become popular in recent years.
“Glamping” is short for glamorous camping. It has all of the luxuries of home while vacationing in the outdoors.
A glamper will do their camping in a tipi, yurt, luxury caravan, hut or other luxury quarters we’ll cover in this article. Boutique camping is so much more than just tents.
Ready to become a part of this trend? Let’s take a look at the different types of glamping. Let’s also check out the best places to go when you’re ready to become a glamper.
Types of Boutique Camping
There’s a myriad of ways you can get your glamping feet wet. These include:
Probably the most popular way to glamp. Glamping tents include comfortable beds and even bathroom facilities.
These beautiful modern tipis have the same design and shape as the historical kind. However, they are packed with comforts for a luxury glamping experience.
First used by nomads in Central Asia centuries ago, these modern yurts are nearly as popular as luxury tents for the glam-seeking adventurer.
Farmhouses and barns
These are a growing trend in glamping for those that are looking for a farm experience. There are many of these being built and renovated throughout the world.
This is one of the most fun and adventurous way of glamping. Imagine spending a week in a unique and awe-inspiring treehouse that has most of the amenities of home!
