Glamping comes from the term ‘Glamourous Camping’ and refers to the more luxurious form of camping. When you think about camping, you may assume it’s all about cold tents and communal shower blocks, but glamping is a totally different experience. With glamping, you don’t have to completely rough it in the woods; instead you can have a luxurious and relaxing experience embracing the outdoors in style.
Glamping has becoming increasingly popular in recent years through the rise of mass tourism for those who are concerned about living an eco-friendly life. Glamping provides an environmentally friendly holiday option for the whole family.
Here are some tips on how to make the most of your glamping experience and how to make it as luxurious and relaxing as possible.
Upgrade Your Tent The most important thing you will need while glamping is a decent tent. You should be sure to invest in a good tent so that you are well protected from bad weather conditions. The last thing you want during your relaxing time away is to wake up in a flooded tent. You should make sure that you have a robust tent and use one that’s easy to set up. Having a good tent is an essential item for your glamping experience, and not having a good standard tent can ruin your entire trip. If you are glamping as a family, then you may want to consider a tent that has separate rooms.
Get Solar Powered Lights Small lights are a cheap but great way to make your tent look and feel more comfortable and luxurious. They create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere for your glamping environment and if you get solar powered lights, then you don’t have to rely on hooking up to the on-site electrics or constantly need to buy new batteries. If you are eco-friendly conscious, then it is a great way to light up the area outside of your tent and they can also be used inside if necessary. Investing in solar powered lights can also be a great way of lighting up the space around your tent area to avoid tripping over anything if you leave your tent in the middle of the night.
Get Luxurious Bedding Who says that camping involves sleeping in an uncomfortable sleeping bag? The best glamping experience will include comfortable bed linen to help you feel even more relaxed and cozy. Finding a decent sleeping bag can be difficult, but it is worth investing in a good 3-season sleeping bag so that you are prepared for whatever the weather. As well as a decent sleeping bag, you can decorate your sleeping area with additional cushions and pillows. Many glampers take their bed pillows and king-size duvet with them so they feel as cozy at home while enjoying the glamping experience.
Take Your Home Comforts It is really easy to create a relaxing but practical area around your tent which will make for a great space to relax and live in. You can get a blanket or rug for outside of your tent which can be great way to create more room for you and your fellow glampers! Don’t think that being away from home means you can’t enjoy home comforts. If you love a decent cup of coffee, then make sure you pack a camping kettle. A camping stove is also a good glamping investment so that you can make food while you are away. Stoves rather than BBQs are popular among glampers who want to enjoy a home cooked meal while on vacation.
Glamping provides the same features of traditional camping but with added extras to ensure that your vacation in the outdoors is done the right way! By following these simple tips, you will have a great glamping experience.
