So What is Glamping?


The word glamping is a combination of the words glamorous and camping. In other words, rather than participating in the style of camping that sees campers roughing it, glamping adds a bit of a glamorous touch. It's a favorite activity among people who wish to be immersed in nature without having to give up the comforts they are used to when they stay in a hotel. In fact, some glamping villages offer amenities similar to that of a resort. Glamping is not done in a transitional tent but in a yurt. Yurts come in all shapes and sizes and made with various materials depending on the location and the type of weather experienced there. Some yurts come equipped with basic amenities like a television and mini-fridge while others may even things like a hot tub or full kitchen.


Who Goes Glamping?
