Camping – it’s cold, tiring, and often downright uncomfortable. So why do people enjoy doing it? Why do they voluntarily drive for hours only to spend more hours pitching up a tent and wondering what culinary masterpiece they could cook on a campfire?
Well, there are two answers to this: One is that there simply are people who do love outdoorsy stuff. They like the thrill of doing things for themselves and maybe finding out how well they’ll fare in the wilds. (That last part’s a joke, obviously.)
Then there are people who have discovered that there is more than one way to go “camping”. From luxurious cabins to glamorous canvas camping tents, let’s take a look at some of the alternatives to traditional camping as you know it:
This is possibly the most obvious way to make your camping trip more comfortable, even luxurious. Cabin living offers some important advantages. For example, you don’t have to bring your own shelter. Similarly, you don’t have to be as frugal with food and water either, because they will be provided.
You also don’t have to worry that you’ll be woken up by the call of nature in the middle of the night. You can go to the toilet in peace, and not have to freeze to death in the process.
Yes, this counts as camping – and a pretty practical approach to it if you’d ask the fans of RVs. Imagine having your transportation and lodging in one. You can just drive where you want and park in your preferred campgrounds with designated RV sites. The best part is that after a long drive, you won’t have to deal with the hassle of pitching a tent so you’ll have a somewhat comfy spot to lie in. You just park and enjoy the amenities of your RV!
Yurts were originally used in Central Asia but are now popular worldwide. This unique variation of the typical tent offers more spacious and, therefore, more comfortable accommodation.
Airstreams are also gaining popularity. It may be largely because of people’s curiosity about campers and what it’s like to sleep in one! If you, too, are wondering if it’s comfortable to sleep in, one will find that there are lots of Airstream rentals at various campgrounds.
Glamping is the perfect marriage of adventure and luxury as it brings together outdoor fun and hotel-level comfort. Glamping means you get to sleep outdoors but not suffer from backache because you’ll still be lying on a comfy bed, have electricity, even enjoy hot showers, and get pampered.
Glamping is never just camping. It can include a wide range of activities and services like BBQs and picnic tables, decor and clean-up, on-site childcare, bathroom facilities, hot tubs, and the use of a kitchen, linens, towels, and more. Some glamping sites are so big you can play various outdoor sports while you’re there.
You’re no longer limited to the usual way of going camping. There are lots of ways to make your camping experience more comfortable and luxurious. From luxurious cabins and RVs to yurts, Airstreams and glamping in luxurious canvas family tents, getting outdoors will no longer be synonymous with discomfort.
You can choose whatever fits you best out of the different options and start enjoying your camping trips.
