Though camping lets you be one with nature, roughing it isn’t exactly the relaxing, enjoyable vacation we want. Enter glamping.
With glamping, you get all the fun of being in a beautiful, remote location, sleeping under the stars, and immediate access to nature, but you don’t have to deal with sleeping on rocks or trying to start a fire. Learn about a few of the ways we can arrange for you to go glamping in the US below.
If you want the feeling of camping but want to stay a little closer to action, luxury tented camps are they way to go.
Several of our partner hotels, like The Ranch at Rock Creek and The Resort at Paws Up, offer luxury tented camp experiences. Your “tent” comes complete with electricity, en-suite bathrooms, and lux amenities, plus you have access to plenty of activities offered on property.
Some destinations or experiences call for true, away-from-civilization camping, but of course that doesn’t mean you have to totally rough it. The remote glamping experience brings the creature comforts to you – wherever you may be. We can arrange for a chef, boating, dune buggies, guides, and more to make sure you make the most of your time in the great outdoors! These are perfect for overnight rafting trips or even as your home base for exploring secluded areas like the North Rim of the Grand Canyon or Lake Powell.
You don’t have to go to Africa for a wildlife experience;we can arrange a safari right here in the US of A! From whales on the West Coast to bears in Alaska to bison and elk in the Rockies, there are plenty of animals to see in America. And with a wildlife guide at your side, you’ll not only have a better chance of spotting animals but will also learn about them along the way!
Take the US safari experience to the next level with a flying safari. You can cover more ground – and see more wildlife – with a private plane taking you from destination to destination.
