What is Glamping?

What is Glamping?

Recently, a global trend has caught fire that offers outdoor enthusiasts an upgrade on rest and recreation. It's called glamping, a new word for a new kind of travel, defined as glamorous camping.  

When you're glamping, there's no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to unroll, no fire to build. Whether in a tent, yurt, airstream, pod, igloo, hut, villa, cabin, cube, teepee or treehouse, glamping is a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.

An Undeniable Trend

Glamping - A fusion of glamour and camping - emerged internationally and came across the Atlantic over the last decade. Both independent properties and global hospitality brands have capitalized on an elevated demand for travelers who want to experience the positive aspects of camping without the "uncomfortable" negatives. Glamping pivots on a high level of service that focuses on the complete comfort of the guests. The amenities found at glamping destinations far exceed anything recreational campers experience.

Search volume for the keyword, "Glamping", in 2015 reached 260,000 in monthly searches (over 3 million annual searches). Glamping.com is ranked number one for the search results for this popular keyword.

What Is Experiential Travel?

Experiential travel could be defined as the act of heading off beyond the beaten tourist path and becoming immersed in authentic local culture or environment. It is a journey away from home, involving a truly memorable and powerful experience (active, cultural, natural, social, or spiritual) that will enrich a person's life and improve the way that they connect with both loved ones and with the world.
