3 gorgeous glamping destinations around the world
Glamping, aka “glamourous camping” lets you enjoy nature in a luxurious setting. No more sleeping on uncomfortable sleeping bags, no more bugs crawling into your tent (yay!). The three glamping sites below have all the amenities of a hotel, but with the great outdoors right outside your front door, waiting to be explored.
FOR THE ECO-FRIENDLY: WHITEPOD
At Whitepod you have stunning views of the Swiss Alps and sleep in an energy efficient geodesic pod. The restaurants on site use local and seasonal ingredients as much as possible, and the activities offered include hiking and mountain biking in the summer, and skiing and dogsledding tours in the winter.
FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART: CHEWTON GLEN TREEHOUSES
New Milton, New Forest, United Kingdom
Chewton Glen is a luxury country house hotel and spa that extends its grandeur to treehouses on stilts. Nestled in the New Forest of Hampshire these luxury suites let you live out your childhood dream, even if only for a night. You can have your meals delivered to you in a picnic basket through a secret hatch, enjoy a soak in your private hot tub, and go for some strolls through the forest or even walk to the beach, located 25 minutes away by foot. In the morning, you can do some yoga outdoors on your deck – it takes “tree pose” to a whole new level:
FOR THE NIGHT OWLS: TANJA LAGOON CAMP
Located in Mimosa Rocks National Park, Tanja Lagoon Camp has luxurious safari tents (fitted with wood floors and handcrafted Queen-sized beds) for you to sleep in. The site is located far from towns and cities, making it perfect for stargazing at night. During the day you can explore the Park and go kayaking (or just for a swim) at Bithry Inlet.
A glamping summer getaway will help you totally relax by simultaneously putting you in a lap of luxury and connecting you to nature.
