Camping isn’t always what you dream it up to be. Sometimes you have to learn to survive in nature by setting up your own tents, cooking your own food (which might include hunting or fishing for it), getting your own water, finding a way to wash-up in the freezing river, and using the most readily available technique to answer nature’s call. Fast forward a few years to the concept of glamping: glamorous camping, where someone does everything to make sure your crew is comfortable while camping. Trade the muddy ground for a soft bed — what more could you ask for? We’ve done some digging and picked out four of our favorite glamping pods across the globe.

Experience paradise in Hawaii

By www.balihousehawaii.com

Hawaii is a magical place. Gorgeous beaches and great weather make the islands a great experience for all visitors. For a truly special experience, visit the Bali House & Bali Cottage at Kehena Beach for an intimate experience surrounded by a picture-perfect paradise. This secluded accommodation includes everything you would expect from a luxury hotel but in the middle of lush tropical gardens and only feet away from Hawaii’s picturesque beaches. As if that wasn’t good enough, you can also enjoy different treatments at the spa, get something prepared in the kitchen, and enjoy activities at the beach.

Stay at a luxury farm in New Zealand

The Bay of Plenty on the west side of New Zealand lives up to its name with incredible characteristics that make it both unique and unforgettable. Right in the heart of the Bay, you’ll find a gem called Kahikatea Farm. On this farm, visitors rent the entire place for themselves and enjoy full luxury amenities that include a queen-size bed, hot shower, hot tub, barbecue grill, fully-equipped kitchen, and much more. The best part of the property is being isolated from everything and being able to experience nature to the fullest surrounded by huge kahikatea trees and groves of nikau palms — iconic New Zealand flora.

Be immersed in nature in Australia

By the-escape.com.au

Located west of Canberra in the southern tip of Australia, and lined by the Clyde River, is the fabulous luxury glamping experience offered by The Escape. Be surrounded by nature and tranquility while pampered with wine, hot tubs, spa treatments, gourmet meals made with fresh local ingredients, and comfortable bedding. Top off your Australian glamping trip with kayaking, biking, hiking, horseback riding, and visiting local beaches. Looking up at the starry night skies is a perfect way to end each day.

Step back in time in the US

By westgateresorts

Just an hour south of Orlando, Westgate River Ranch offers glamping as a way to live the true American frontier experience. Think Native American-style tapestries and worn wood aesthetic, all on the grounds of a Southwestern-style ranch. Each glamp site comes equipped with all the amenities you would expect from a 5-star resort. Outside of your accommodation, Westgate offers horseback riding, airboat tours, and fine dining. When it comes to Orlando — or even Florida, or the United States in general — Westgate is definitely one of the best glamping spots around.

Winter is coming in Ireland

By Glamping Hub

No better way to round up this list than with an adventure taken right from the TV screens. The Game of Thrones Overnight Glamping Experience, located just 40 minutes from Belfast, Ireland, is a truly magical experience for fans of the TV show and for glamping enthusiasts as well. You’ll get to experience adventures inspired by the TV series like archery practice, boating tours to different locations in Ireland related to the story, Medieval-style banquets, and even meeting the real dire wolves from the show.

  1. I’ve been dying to go Glamping! Adding all these to my travel bucket list!

  2. As I write, I’m in a glamping spot in Sicily! I’m definitely a flashpacker, so for me, all these places are a yes from me. I’d love to visit Hawaii, and Australia, so these would top the list!

  3. Wow. What a varied set of places to spend a holiday in. I especially loved the GOT setting. Being a big GOT fan its surely a big draw. Also loved the Bali house. Feels very rustic!

  4. Looks like a nice area to relax after a long, challenging trip. I normally go to the mountains and prefer to stop and have some rest in a place like this afterwards.

  5. I am quite fond of camping and love the thrill of setting up a camp and doing the odds. But sometimes, I feel like giving in to the sinful desires of luxury. Glamping is something where I can have best of both. Would definitely want to go for glamping.

  6. Great article thanks for sharing such a useful information about a Glamping.
