While camping is a fun summer tradition, not all of us love roughing it.

Glamping = glamorous + camping.
Glamping is a way of enjoying nature without having to actually deal with nature. The trick to glamping is to make your tent feel like you are at home.
Glamping can get as fancy as you want, provided you have the trunk space. So the next time you go camping, indulge in every luxury so that you feel you are spending the night at a hotel instead of out in the wilderness.
The best ways to set up your glamping tent
- Choose a waterproof tent big enough to hold a party and one that has individual rooms. It should be big enough to stand up straight and walk around in.
- Clear any debris away from the campground and then pitch the tent on level ground.
- Set up a queen- or king-sized inflatable air mattress.
- Add soft and luxurious bedding.
- Decorate with colourful pillows, faux fur throws and exotic rugs.
- Set up foldable TV trays on either side of the bed as nightstands.
- Light candles, hang lanterns and string up some white globe lights to set a glamourous mood.
- Add a tent fan to keep everyone nice and cool.
- Don’t forget to accessorize with sparkly, glittery fun items.
- Add a hammock outside for an afternoon nap.
- Bring some comfortable folding chairs and dining table for your dining room area.
- Roast marshmallows and hot dogs over a portable fire pitt.
Picking the right glamping location
Once you have decided how you are going to decorate your glamping tent, you should spend some time deciding where you want to camp.
Canadian geography can be glamourous. Just think about which activities you want to do while glamping. Then choose a location that will provide you with those opportunities. For example, national parks offer great hiking, campgrounds have lakes for swimming and boating, or use your backyard as a casual oasis.
The best part is that when you go glamping, you get to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors — with every luxury your could ever want.
