Have you ever found yourself camping in a tent, shivering in the cold despite layers and layers of blankets?
Those days and nights can be rather rough.
That’s why it’s time to embrace the glamping lifestyle, and never look back
Glamping, or glamorous camping, is a trend that’s catching on like wildfire. Think camping with added luxuries like electricity, real beds, gourmet food and a touch of glamour. It offers an enticing mix of comfort, convenience, and the thrill of the great outdoors.
The Rise of Glamping
Since the onset of the pandemic, the desire to enjoy the outdoors while maintaining a degree of comfort has increased exponentially. Families, particularly those with children, are packing up and heading to the hills, in search of fresh air and open spaces, with a considerable number of them opting for the glamping experience.
The allure of glamping lies in the balance it strikes; you’re amidst nature, yet not left to rough it out. You can listen to the rustling leaves, gaze at the starlit sky, and feel the warmth of the campfire without compromising on comfort.
Statistics show that glamping is not just a passing fad. A 2019 North American Glamping Report revealed that nearly half of the glampers are couples with children. A 2020 KOA Camping Report further indicated that a quarter of North American campers embarked on their first camping trip in 2020, with a large percentage of millennials and families dipping their toes in glamping. It also revealed a growing interest in glamping, with almost half of the tent campers expressing a desire to try out deluxe cabins.
The Glamping Appeal
There are so many reasons to be drawn to glamping. For new campers, it provides an easy entry into camping without the need for mastering survival skills like starting a fire or pitching a tent. It’s about enjoying the ‘wild side of glamping or the more polished side of camping’, as Margaux Bossanne, of Huttopia, succinctly puts it.
The convenience and accessibility that glamping offers have also made it appealing to communities that aren’t traditional campers. Alyssa Ravasio, the founder of Hipcamp, emphasizes the mission of making the outdoors accessible, safe, and welcoming for everyone.
Hipcamp, recognizing the surging interest in glamping, has been collaborating with private landowners to expand available spaces, adding 6,500 campsites to their offerings in March. Glamping options now range from safari-style expedition tents and retro trailers on family farms to uniquely Canadian experiences like historic homes and tiny houses in national parks.
A Community for Nature Lovers
But glamping isn’t just about the luxe accommodations and amenities. It’s also about fostering a community of nature lovers who are aware of and care about climate change and biodiversity loss. It offers a connection to the outdoors that luxury hotels simply can’t match.
While some might argue that luxury seekers should stick to hotels, nothing compares to the immersion into nature that glamping offers. Glamping isn’t about toughness or survival. It’s about comfort, accessibility, and building a deep love and respect for nature.
The popularity of glamping means bookings fill up fast. There’s a range of price points, from as little as $35 a night to luxury experiences costing $2,000 a night.
In the end, remember, glamping is not just about paying for an experience; it’s about creating memories and embracing a love for the outdoors. Whether you’re an outdoorsy person or an indoorsy person trying to break out of your shell, glamping offers an accessible, comfortable, and enjoyable way to experience nature.
The outdoors, as they say, is good for the soul. Why not experience it in comfort? The appeal of glamping lies in the fact that it doesn’t have to be a hard experience. It can be really, really comfortable.
