What is glamping?
Glamping is a rising trend, which gives camping a whole new meaning. Every camping lover has once been in a situation, when he wanted something different than a sleeping bag in the middle of the wilderness, trying to find the right position to fall asleep. We wanted to create comfort similar to the one we have at home, and if it was possible, we would take our bed with us to the campsite, if not the whole house. This is what glamping offers you! Homelike comfort with an experience of camping in wilderness. It means a carefree vacation in nature, where you do not need to put up a tent and light a fire after a long trip. At the same time, you still get a unique touch with nature.
Glamping is the future of camping
When we hear the word ‘camping’, our first thought is a scene by a lake, where we enjoy adventures with our family by a camp fire. But camping has developed into overcrowded campsites in recent years, where it is true that we camp with a tent, but we have almost zero contact with nature. We are ready to sacrifice that, because campsites offer comfort, which is very important to us. Noone wants to camp in a true wilderness. Reasons for that are in comfort. We want a good bed, electricity, internet connection, tap water, and beside that, we do not want any neighbours, we wish to have peace and privacy and an authentic connection with nature. This is what we call a perfect camping. Glamping offers this. It is designed to provide comfort in authentic nature. The statistics show that glamping is on the increase, as it is searched in browser more than 260.000 times per month. It is a new way of camping with style, which offers guests a whole package of comfort, privacy and true relaxation in pristine nature. More and more tourist providers are aware of a big opportunity that glamping offers. Although it represents a more elite way of travelling at the moment, it will develop into an affordable way of travelling in the future with more and more people using it. Tourist trends are in favour of glamping. They are in favour of comfort in a true pristine nature.
Glamping in Slovenia and around the world
We recognised the rising trend of glamping in our company Mizarstvo Hrovat and we are one of the pioneers developing glamping in Slovenia. It is still a sector that is developing and possibilities are countless, as more and more people notice chances they have with glamping. Some of the campsites already offer this kind of experience. One of them is famous Garden Village in Bled, where they present glamping with huge glamorous tents. The second attraction of this kind are the Gozdne vile huts, also in Bled, which offer an authentic touch with nature, as the huts are placed in the forest, but still near the lake. Herbal Glamping resort Ljubno has taken care of a nice vacation in nature, where you can find out more about herbs through different workshops and activities in nature.
The importance of glamping in Slovenia is founded on tradition, as resorts offer glamping in accordance with their tradition and history. An example of this is Ptuj, where you can stay the night in a wine barrel, which reflects their rich wine tradition and history. All those possibilities indicate that Slovenia follows world trends and that it will offer a lot of glamping possibilities in the future with its diversity and natural beauties, which will, consequently, lead to a bigger recognisability of the country.
Around the world, glamping can be already found on every continent in all different forms. You could be a fan of a normal tent, treehouses, mountain lodges, seaside houses. Glamping exists everywhere. It offers different varieties of accommodation in different parts of the world. You might wish a vacation in a warm hug of a fireplace, you might prefer lakes or you may simply enjoy forest nature. There are no limits when it comes to glamping. Because of its simple and inovative design, it offers just what every individual wishes for. A real adventure in a shelter of comfort.
