Clayoquot Wilderness Resort

As a New York Times article on the subject says, “Camping? Yes. Roughing it? Not quite.” It’s the perfect description of upscale camping, or glamping. If you’re the type of person that could never imagine packing your own tent and doing without a shower for a few days, this is the perfect summer activity for you. Instead of lukewarm coffee over a fire and mosquito infested campsites, imagine gourmet breakfasts and mosquito net draped beds.

The budget version? Glam up a tent in your backyard and invite friends over for DIY mani-pedis and facials.

    Hello Rebecca, searching for some informations about glamping, I found your website.

    Best regards from Austria.

      I would recommend doing a google search for various words that might be associated with the tent, along with the country code for website addresses. For example, I would search for “marquee purchase ie” for companies that sell them in Ireland.
