Perhaps you’re considering a family getaway in the serenity of the wilderness, but you’re not quite sure how you’ll fare without your creature comforts? If this is the case, it’s likely that you’re more suited to glamping than good old-fashioned camping.
But what are the key differences between camping and glamping?
Well, if risking slips, trips and falls over tent pegs just isn’t your style, glamping will come to your rescue, to provide a slightly more approachable way to get back to nature.
Key camping and glamping differences
- As the name suggests, ‘glamping’ is camping’s glam cousin. It enables holidaymakers to get outside, back to nature, with friends and family, while minimising the hassle associated with standard camping holidays. You needn’t worry about tripping up over one another in your tiny canvas dwelling, as glamping offers happy campers a choice of accommodation, ranging from yurts and tepees to cabins and RVs. Camping and glamping both put you in an optimum position to appreciate nature, the difference is how you experience it.
- The great British weather is all part of the fun, but when you’re camping, adverse weather conditions can really put a dampener on your holiday spirit. When you’re glamping, however, the weather can do as it might, and usually you’ll be comfortable, safe and sound.
- When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, chances are that when you’re camping you’re likely to be resting your head upon a ground sheet or, at the very best, a blow-up mattress. When you’re glamping, you may even have your own mattress, pillows and bedding.
- Often when camping, half the battle is learning how to keep food and other supplies protected from wildlife. When you’re glamping, this is very rarely an issue.
- Gathering supplies when you’re camping and glamping vary somewhat. Campers will hold vivid memories of trekking to fill water containers just to freshen up, or make a drink. Depending on your choice of glamping accommodation, chances are that you will be connected to gas and water. The toilet and shower block are usually just a short stride away too, that’s if they’re not inside your cosy abode.
