If you have ever gone camping, you know how stressful it can be to prepare for this type of trip. Equipment, food, first aid kit… There is a lot to remember when packing for camping trips, after all, we can’t know in advance what we will need once we are in the middle of nature. But what if we told you there’s a way to stay connected with nature without all the dangers and discomforts of being far away from civilization?

The concept of glamping isn’t a brand new one, but the past few years were essential for the development of this type of travel. Combining natural surroundings with comfortable housing solutions, glamping villages are great accommodation options that can be found all around the world. Glamping structures ensure that travelers don’t have to worry about bringing their own tent, sleeping bag or bedding. In fact, they include comfortable bathrooms, soft linens and comfortable mattresses. And the best part: glamping sites, as opposed to campsites, are supplied with electricity – some of them even have WiFi.

An added bonus is that glamping sites usually offer private campfire areas. So if the only reason why you would accept to go on a camping trip is roasting marshmallows over a campfire, you are in luck. No need to wonder if you are allowed to light fires in the area where you are staying, a fire pit will even be ready for you to make delicious s’mores.
