8 Cutting Edge Glamping Resorts around the World

Glamping is a relatively new concept mixing the idea of camping, being one with nature, getting out into the wild but not having to deal with all the potential hardships that come with it.  I for one love the idea of Glamping!  For years we have camped in the wild, in forest parks and on campsite and for some reason each time I was left traumatised but the experience.

In all fairness it was mostly due to that fact that we were never fully prepared, always without either our mats or sleeping bags, lights, food or something that we neglected to pack thus putting a damper on our trip.

The best thing about Glamping is that you can experience the great outdoor without having to slum it or pack the entire house just to go hiking.  Here’s to a new age of Luxury Camping!

Seoul studio ArchiWorkshop designed and built a luxury camping facility, “Glamping on the Rock” in Gapyeong, just outside of Seoul.  Known for its arboretum, pine forests and mountainous landscape, Gapyeong is the perfect place to get up close and personal with nature.

Glamping on the Rock was designed to revitalise the concept of Glamping in South Korea, which according to the architects, feel has been devalued by poor-quality accommodation.

6. Whitepod Eco Luxury Pod

Les Cerniers, Switzerland

This one was added to our bucket list before this post even went live!  I mean look at those views!  I must admit sleeping in a ‘tent’ even if it’s a luxury one, in the depths of the winter is not something I would usually go for, but when you have views like this, snowboarding on your door step and the swiss apls as your wonderland then I’m in!

100% romantic, luxurious and a no1 for anyone wanting a unique glamping experience.

7. Attrap’Rêves – Allauch, France

My sister always used to say ‘Janine you live in a bubble’. One day I actually could!  At least for one or two nights I could experience what it’s actually like to sleep in a bubble.  Similar to a zorbing ball, this transparent dome offers guests a chance to really become one with nature.  With no privacy what so ever, at least from the birds and the bees you’ll want to change into your pjs discretely.

Scattered across France in various locations, a night in one of these is sure to be a quirky experience.

Their locations include Allauch (10 km from Marseille), La Bouilladisse (Provence), Montagnac-Montpezat (Verdon Nature Park), Puget-Ville (Var department) and the UNESCO-protected Luberon Regional Nature Park.

8. Arctic Glass Igloos – Lapland, Finland

When you travel to Finland to witness the Northern lights, what better way to see them than from the comfort of your own room, or bed for that matter. Stay cozy inside the dome shaped Igloos while watching the best natural light show in the world.

When or should I say if you get bored of that, head in the direction of the snow hotel for a drink or maybe a meal surrounded by ice.  You might want to pack your winter woolies for this glamping trip!
