The great outdoors is always a good place to visit. And, if traditional camping is a bit too uncivil for your liking, don’t dismiss it just yet. Fortunately for those who like being outside but aren’t willing to give up the luxury of quality accommodation, there is an easy solution, called glamping. It’s where glamor meets camping. Here’s how to turn your next camping trip into a real glamping experience.
1. Proper Glamping Starts With the Tent
The heart of glamping is having plenty of room, so it’s important to choose the right tent. If you love having space and comfortable headroom, you might want to buy a dome tent. They look amazing and really bring out the comfort of not having to crawl in and out of your temporary home.
2. Focus on the Sleeping Setup
Even if you buy the most luxurious tent in the world, you’ll still be sleeping on the hard ground unless you plan your sleeping setup in advance. Consider getting an air mattress because it’s comfy, takes little space to transport, and it brings out an extra layer of comfort that’s imperative for every authentic glamping experience. Throw in a rug or two on the floor to keep your toes warm and make everything cozy.
3. Bring Enough Lights
Nothing brings out the glamor of a camping trip, like bringing lights to decorate your tent. If you’re looking for sustainable solutions, it’s best to get solar lanterns or lamps as they can easily charge during the day. That’s a great solution if you’re planning a longer trip. You can also get battery-powered lights for that gorgeous Instagram-worthy look.
4. Accessories Bring the Magic
In preparing your glamping gear, don’t be afraid to accessorize and bring matching pieces and patterns together. From rugs and pillows to lamps, flowers, and blankets, there’s so much you can do to create a welcoming and unique space. After all, after a day on the trail, you’ll want to go back to a cozy and comfortable tent to relax and recharge your batteries.
5. Don’t Forget About Food
Whether you have a favorite energy drink or protein bar, or virtually any type of snack that you can’t live without, consider taking it with you. Of course, some foods last longer than others, and certain snacks require a fridge to keep fresh, so if you won’t have access to one, be mindful of what you can realistically take with you. All that’s left for your glamping trip now is the date it begins. Glamp away!
