For some years now, new travel solutions and trends have increased and varied considerably. New tourism-related professions have emerged, with the aim of offering the traveller the best possible travel experience.
Have you ever heard of glamping? A term that combines glamour with camping, it encapsulates the concept of spending a holiday in luxury while camping. When glamping you don’t have to give up any of the comforts that you would enjoy in a classic holiday home.
But how did we get to glamping? This detailed explanation offers an overview of how the tent has evolved from prehistoric times to the present, with some amusing details!
Glamping: Who Is It For?
Glamping is the ideal solution for groups of people and families who want to have all the comforts and services of a private apartment combined with the nature of the camping experience and adventure of being surrounded by nature. Couples also love to opt for holiday glamping, especially to make a holiday even more romantic.
Although the concept of glamping has only developed recently, the structures did not expect much to grow and spread around the world. The greatest concentration of glamping tents, however, is predominantly outside the old continent, with America as the leader, followed by Africa, Europe, Asia and Oceania.
Glamping: what is different from classic camping?
The glamper will not have to carry the camping tent in which they will stay because the glamping tents are fixed. In the glamping tent, there are comfortable double beds. You can enjoy full baths as tents are sometimes equipped with a bath, shower and even a sauna. In the morning, wake up to coffee aromas prepared from a modern coffee machine connected to mains electricity. Glampers can even comfortably adjust the temperature thanks to air conditioning systems. This will allow you to spend cool nights glamping during the height of summer.
Glamping: how many varieties?
There is a lot of diversity in terms of glamping accommodation. Yurt curtains are ideal for a simple but modern experience and are the ones that resemble the classic camping tent. Their circular structure includes wooden floors and the outer finishes are waterproof. Some yurt curtains are ideal for a night under the stars, since they are transparent at the top. Other options are impressively built into trees, reachable through special ladders that can be suspended in the air while sleeping. ‘Bubbles’ are a recent invention found mainly in Scandinavia and France. Designed to blend in with the surrounding nature, the bubbles are well furnished and allow you to fall asleep under the starry sky.
Glamping: a holiday style, or rather, a style holiday.
One of the main features needed for glamping is inevitably a large tent. This allows you to bring everything you need from home. You can bring all those extra items that you would never find in a standard camping tent. The pumps for inflating air mattresses can stay at home. These special tents boast often canopied beds. Many even feature mosquito nets to allow you to spend quiet and peaceful nights without the bother of biting insects.
The sheets? Of course, they’re pure linen. The water is from the tap (and also hot!) thanks to the wash basin placed in the bathroom corner. You can cook naturally healthy dishes thanks to electrical appliances supplied in the cooking area. Camping recipes such as roast sausages and fries can be enjoyed at another time. You can cook freshly made tomato sauce, a vegetable casserole or freshly baked fish from the nearby lake or river.
