From Camping to Glamping: 4 Tips for Great Glamping Experience

Goodbye camping, hello Glamping. Glamping seems to be a hot thing nowadays. More and more glamorous sites, posh camping resorts, and experiences are popping up in different parts of the country. 

The rise of Glamping is no surprise. It has emerged to attract people who get excited by camping without sacrificing the comfort and luxury of a regular vacation. In the outdoor world, glamorous camping itself has always existed on a spectrum, and it's going to be bigger than the typical tent experience.


What is Glamping?


The word "glamping" is a portmanteau of "glamorous camping" and has emerged as an alternative to camping outdoors. Glamorous camping means getting the best of both worlds—all the benefits of camping and the luxuries of staying in a five-star resort. The thing about glamping is that it extends the possibilities of your campsite by offering more comforts even if you are out in the woods or far away from civilization. 

If you're a seasoned camper or a hunter of the outdoors, glamping is something you need to give a try. Here are four tips for a great glamping experience:


Choosing the perfect accommodation.


Finding the best accommodation is one of the most important things to consider. The key to a fantastic glamping experience is having a comfy bed to kick in at the end of the day. A tiny camping tent won't fit the luxuries of glamourous camping. It's best if you have a large tent enough to accommodate a bed, table, chair, lighting, heating, or anything that you think would make your experience better. Sometimes large tents can be expensive. So if you don't want to spend a massive chunk of money, you can either look for rentals or used ones on marketplaces online. If you're feeling lucky, you can rent an RV with all the amenities built-in to strip off the hassle of bringing everything with you.

Keep everything cozy.


Whether it's bringing an air mattress, pieces of furniture, lights or anything alike, make sure that it contributes to keeping your space or site cozy. If you're bringing an air mattress, make sure you have blankets and comforters to keep your sleeping area soft and homey. Adding lanterns, mini LED lights, or candles around your site provides the maximum glamping feel with minimum effort. Remember, you're in the forest or at a glamping resort, so create a space that's warm, inviting, and safe. 


Bring the entertainment with you.


Glamping is the perfect antidote to the hectic pace of everyday life, so most out of it. Forget your gadgets for a minute and explore outdoorsy activities. It's easy and enjoyable to get back to nature while you're outside. You can start by exploring the surrounding fields and woodlands and wonder from your tent views. Let your children get creative by hosting a game that lets them experience nature's colors on the ground, in the sky, or on the trees. You can also show them how to make a collage from all the beautiful leaves they find. With bringing in the entertainment, anything is possible.


Gourmet meals are a must


Making meals at home is fun, but making meals while glamping is a lot more fun. Since you're already having a luxurious getaway, it's important to think about the best meals you could cook—open flame grilled dishes are our best bet—after all there’s no limit on what you can carry into the woods.

There are so many things you can do when glamping, the above are just a couple of things. So release those creative juices and start planning out your net glamping trip.
