Glamping is a fun new word to describe camping that's much more glamorous than pitching a tent at an overgrown campsite and using a tree as bathroom facilities. It brings together the relaxing and natural outdoor environment with all the amenities you'd expect from hotels or resorts. If roughing it in the Great Outdoors just isn't your thing but you love to experience nature at its purest and most beautiful, then a glamping experience might be just what you need for your next vacation.
