Patagonia Bound

If you really want to get away from it all, here is an exotic option for travelers who enjoy nature hikes and cycling trips with top rate sustainable accommodations. EcoCamp, located near Torres del Paine National Park, offers visitors a variety of dome choices for lodging while they explore the wonders of Patagonia.

Pleasure Domes

Three inter-connected domes offer travelers a relaxed communal camping experience in the wilds of Patagonia at EcoCamp. The domes are all equipped with a low emission wood stove and connect to sleeping quarters by raised wooden walkways. 

Built for Comfort

Even if you are miles from civilization, you can still enjoy the creature comforts of home in this geodesic dome which is constructed in the same style as the ancient Kaweskar tribe dwellings of Patagonia. The featured structure functions as an efficient thermal and wind resistant unit and produces minimal impact on the environment while allowing travelers to immerse themselves in a spectacular setting. 

Airstream Allure

Were you ever envious of vacationers whose idea of camping was to live the gypsy life in a luxurious Airstream trailer? At Lakedale Resort, you can experience it for yourself in a fully renovated 1978 Excella model with all the amenities and a lovely lakefront location in Friday Harbor, Washington.

Windmill Hideaway

If you are looking for an offbeat bed and breakfast option near Norfolk, England, it's hard to top the Cley Windmill, which dates from the early 18th century and offers lovely views of the sea and the surrounding salt marshes.

Colorado Rustic

Step back in time for a romantic getaway in the mountains of Colorado where you can stay in a beautifully restored cabin from the 1800s at Dunton Hot Springs. 

220 Feet Below Ground

If you’re looking for a truly unique glamping experience, check into the largest, deepest and quietest motel in the world at Grand Canyon Caverns, which is 220 feet below the surface and accessible by elevator.

The Cavern Suite

Privacy is not a problem at the Cavern Suite at Grand Canyon Caverns because it is the only motel room of its kind and is located in a cavern that took 65 million years to form. Measuring 200 feet wide and 400 feet long with a 70 foot ceiling, this one-of-a-kind suite comes with two double beds, a living room with a fold-out sofa, a library, a bathroom and more.

Nature Pod

Located in the heart of the Swiss Alps, the geodesic shaped tents at Whitepod offer an alternative way to experience the thermal baths, lakeside walks and nature trails of the region.

Winter Glamping

Whether you like to vacation in the summer or winter, the Whitepod sleeper offers year round comfort with amenities that include a king size bed, wood stove, bathrooms with electric heat and a terrace with great views.

Swiss Alps Immersion

All of the 15 geodesic shaped tents at Whitepod are anchored on wooden platforms and feature large bay windows for scenic overlooks. It is an ideal way to experience the dazzling beauty of winter at close range in the Swiss Alps.

Curated Road Trip

Hit the road for a five day glamping adventure in a luxury Airstream from AKA’s Mobile Suite which takes you to the Sunstone Vineyards and the Ocean Mesa Campground in Santa Barbara, California. 

Mobile Suite

This top of the line Airstream from AKA Mobile Suite comes fully equipped with a master bedroom, lounge area, kitchen, bathroom/shower, gas grill, camping chairs, flat-panel TV/DVD and other extras to make a road trip memorable. 

Welcome to The Wedge

Combining a rustic appeal with understated elegance, the cabins at Fireside Resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, are a modern update of the valley’s original homesteader cabins such as this stylish wedge design.

Be a Gypsy

Windmill Campersite on the Isle of Wight, England offers laidback lodging for those glampers who want a rustic bohemian experience. The gypsy inspired Shepherds Hut comes with a double bed, dining area with hot and cold running water and other essentials.

Eco Village

If you want to commune with nature in a beautiful but remote forest setting, you can really get away from it all at Gozdne Vile Glamping which is located on Lake Bled in Slovenia. The rustic but charming wooden huts come with outdoor hot tubs that are firewood fueled.

Hut Lodging, Slovenia Style

The interiors of the wooden huts at Gozdne Vile Glamping in Slovenia offer comfortable beds and are well insulated and heated. Beautiful natural surroundings and nearby Lake Bled are just outside your cabin door.

Caboose For Two

If you have a love for trains, you can’t do much better than The Depot Lodge which offers bedroom lodging in a renovated Norfolk & Western caboose in the countryside of Paint Bank, Virginia.

For Train Lovers

Completely furnished with a bathroom and separate shower, the Caboose cabin at the Depot Lodge also comes with a side patio where you hear the soothing sounds of nearby Pott’s Creek.

Restored 1909 Cottage

Among the variety of glamping accommodations available at the Depot Lodge in rural Virginia are various cabins, an Airstream trailer, traditional rooms in the inn and the Section Foreman’s Cottage (pictured), which is a beautifully restored 1909 building that can sleep up to six people and includes a back deck/dining area.

Yurt With a View

Interested in glamping options in Portugal? Eco-Lodge Brejeira in South Portugal near the hill town of Silves and the Serra de Monchique mountain range offers such whimsical choices as a gypsy van, a fire ambulance van and a traditional Mongolian circular tent known as a yurt (pictured) complete with an observation deck.

Wanderlust Caravan

Outfitted with a sitting room, kitchen and bedroom, the Dutch gypsy van at Eco-Lodge Brejeira is a delightfully different way to enjoy the natural surroundings of South Portugal and offers a fine view over the Serra de Monchique mountain range.

Get Your Kicks on Route 66

Enjoy a retro road trip experience at an icon of historic Route 66 - the Wigwam Motel in San Bernardino, California. You can choose from a selection of 30 foot tall teepees made of wood framing, concrete and stucco for a nostalgic glamping adventure.

Sleep in a Wigwam

You won't find a better example of old school glamping than to “sleep in a wigwam” in an eclectic environment of palm trees, swimming pool and teepees at Wigwam Motel, No. 7, which was first established in 1949.

Mini-Cabin in North Devon

Set in the picturesque North Devon countryside near the Cornish coast of England, Quarry Pods at Dunsdon Farm offer a choice of five modern but quaint pods with private washroom/shower facilities. 

Covered Wagon in Crystal River Valley

Situated at 7,000 feet in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, overlooking the Crystal River, Avalanche Ranch offers a variety of sleeping options besides traditional cabins such as this cozy covered wagon for two.

Pioneer Spirit
