Glamping. It seems that most people know what it is– ‘glamorous camping,’ but few have actually done it.
Yet it’s a great way to experience the great outdoors without hauling around a bunch of camping gear. And anyone who’s pitched a tent knows what a comedy of errors that can become!
Although we may be nearing the end of summer, one of the fun things about glamping is that you can find everything from a safari tent to a rustic cabin. As the weather begins to cool, look for a place with a potbelly stove or fireplace to keep you cozy warm. Some rentals have small kitchens or even come with breakfast or room service delivered at your request so you can leave your cooking gear at home.
Advice from a pro
Glamping around the world
Unique and sometimes wildly quirky, even if you’re just an armchair traveler, you should visit Glamping Hub’s website. There you’ll find everything from a cave in Spain to a thatched-roof hut with an ocean view on the coast of Baja. The photos alone will have you dreaming up adventures around the globe.
Glamping in Oregon
Closer to home in the Pacific Northwest, you’ll find yurts, greenhouses and tree house cabins on the river. Many are situated on the way through or near wine country, presenting the opportunity to wine taste along the way. Some accommodations are bare bones rustic while others definitely put the glam in glamping. Click here for a full list of glamping in Oregon.
