What the heck is glamping? We're glad you asked! For the many ladies who find that camping may not be your cup of tea, you have the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors while living it up in the lap of luxury.
That's right - glamorous camping, a.k.a. glamping, is the latest camping trend. More and more luxury destinations are catering to ladies on weekend glamping trips, who are looking for the opportunity to relax, unwind, and take in the scenery - with a little bit of pampering while they're at it.
Glamping: What's It All About?
Just like it sounds, glamping differs from traditional camping in that it doesn't require a tent or a sleeping bag. Sure, you'll get the opportunity to bond with Mother Nature, but you won't be sleeping underneath the stars.
Many new glamping sites provide stylish, rustic cabins with glamorous amenities, like a screened in porch, private bathroom, gas fireplace, and luxurious bed. A cabin for a couple can cost as much as $950 a night per person; family cabins start at $1200 a night per person.
While glamping, you have your choice of a wide range of activities that may include hiking, archery, or mountain biking. Additionally, you can relax in comfort while enjoying a scenic view with modern cabin amenities that include air conditioning, heat, and Wi-Fi.
Glamping Products: Don't Leave Home Without Them!
A weekend glamping trip wouldn't be complete without a wide range of luxury products to make any interaction with the great outdoors that much more bearable. Glampers may choose to bring their own stylish waterproof raincoat to brave the elements or even a lightweight silver cooler to hold bottled water and champagne.
To take a step further, many ladies who take glamping seriously also choose to bring their own high-heeled hiking boots. Whether or not high-heeled hiking boots serve an actual purpose or function as a frivolous camping fashion accessory is still up for debate.
Finally, ladies who want to plan the ultimate glamping getaway should bring their own spa accessories if there isn't a spa on-site. A fun evening glamping activity amongst the girls can include DIY facials; make sure to bring cleansers, toners, face masks, and moisturizers to beautify and soothe tired skin while grilling s'mores around the campfire.
Glamping Transportation: Book a Limo
Since glamping presents a whole new spin on traditional camping, it would only make sense that a limo rental would be in order. Instead of hightailing it up to the mountains in a rugged, muddy Jeep, pitch in with a few girlfriends to book a luxury limo or town car to take you to your destination.
Booking a limo for a camping excursion has two specific benefits: first, you'll get to relax and unwind while you sip on champagne on the ride to your campsite. Second, a limo will provide more than enough space to carry all of your glamping goodies, like luggage, a portable champagne cooler, and comfy chairs to place around the fire!
