History of Glamping

Glamping maybe a buzz word that you may have noticed popping up on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram lately and you may be asking yourself, “what in the world is Glamping and where did this craze ever come from”?

Even though sleeping in unique accommodations may be new to some, people have been sleeping in all kinds of temporary semi-permanent structures such as tents and yurts for hundreds of years.

Some of the earliest records date back to the 1100s, Mongolian tribes would live in yurts during Genghis Khan reign, providing an ideal shelter from strong winds, precipitation, and sun.

They would stay in safari tents, often furnished with antique furniture, real beds, Persian rugs, and luxury bedding. These traveling guest were not so keen on leaving the luxury of their homes and so this style of luxury camp continued. Giving them the experience of spectacular views, nature and all the luxuries to accompany them.

The next date in history was around the 1900s when wealthy Europeans and Americans wanted a taste of luxury on their camping adventures to Africa.

This style of guest accommodations became more and more popular with groups of wealthy people, until nearly a hundred years later, where this trend has gained in popularity not only in the UK but within the USA as well, 2013 is when Glamping was truly established as a full-fledged luxury experience.

Glamping is a perfect blend of nature, luxury, and comfort!

You will find that there are various options to choose from when you decide to go Glamping.  Unlike traditional camping, you can choose to sleep in a treehouse atop a large tree in a forest, a romantic gypsy wagon in a green lush field, to a cosmic getaway underneath the vast evening sky in a bubble tent. There are so many options to choose from and booking sites available online to aid you to find the perfect glamping site for your stay.

Unlike traditional camping of popup tents, sleeping bags, and outhouses, glamping offers unique sleeping quarters, with real furnishings and running water available for their guest.

Some glamping site locations offer room service, adventure tours, spa packages and more. The next time you are traveling and looking to try something new and unique, try a Glamping!

Thinking about starting a Glamping Business in the USA?

The glamping business future is a “bright one” in the USA. Weekender’s and tourists are choosing to stay closer to home rather than booking a trip to a foreign destination.

Weekend Trips

With the right space, whether it’s large or small, it can be turned into a profitable “glamping site”.

There have been a variety of glamping business models that have been proven to be very successful. And in fact, one of the best-kept secrets in this industry is that some of those models can achieve a return on investment and pay for their set up costs anywhere within the first few months of launching, which is quite a bold claim for any new business.

It offers an exciting new opportunity for entrepreneurs looking for a profitable business to start, which also brings benefits to their lifestyle as they are able to spend more time outside with less stress and more control over their future.

A benefit of starting a Glamping business are many, but specifically, it helps to diversify income generated from a piece of land and can be run alongside an existing business you may have.

And with the use of Airbnb’s popularity and booking platform, it makes a glamping business owners ability to begin booking guests to stay at their site.

Two popular sites that we recommend for business owners to use are Airbnb and the Glamping Hub online booking platform.

New businesses have the tools and knowledge available to them now, allowing them to learn quickly, build confidence, avoid pitfalls and jump ahead of the competition.

I recommend this book The “Ultimate Glamping Business Guide” written by S. Riley.


From my experience of helping new glamping businesses launch into the USA market, I have identified key areas that lead them to success.

One crucial factor is to remain unique and refrain from copying what everyone else is doing. Be original, use your imagination, create your site to be a place where you would want to spend an extended weekend or vacation at.

After all, that’s the beauty of a Glamping business: it comes in many different forms and fits different traveling budgets.

A satisfied customer will keep coming back for more and are more than happy to share with all of their friends and family members about their experience at your glamping business site. And let us not forget the power of social media!

Glamping has taken on its very own category in the travel industry. What had started out as a trend in Europe has turned into a full-blown phenomenon that is reaching all across the globe.

Glamping is a combination of the great outdoors and luxury similar to that of a 5-star hotel. There are different habitats and levels of luxury one can actually choose from for their traveling experience.

Glamping allows travelers to connect with nature in their own way, and some Glamping sites are pushing the limits of how these travelers experience natural landscapes in comfort.

Glamping sites range anywhere from a simple canvas tent set up in a wooded forest to an Ice Hotel in Sweden.

Landowners and Farmers are cashing in on the Glamping (Glamorous Camping) Craze!

The tourism and hospitality industries have seen a significant shift in rural travel trends with the growing popularity of Glamping being the driving force.

Glamping went from “joke” to a full-blown legitimate segment of the travel industry virtually overnight. Glamping started as sort of a joking way to poke fun at those who would only go camping if they could bring along all the comforts of home.

Glamping has revolutionized camping and many traditional hospitality companies are diversifying by offering “Luxury Camping” options at many of their resorts in an attempt to satisfy the demand.

Bubble tents can also be used as an upgrade option or even as a way to differentiate themselves from the ever-increasing competition.

Farmers and Landowners are quickly realizing how they are ideally positioned to fill the increasingly underserved demand in the hospitality market within these often remote locations and are cashing in on the craze.

More people than ever are seeking to escape the urban jungle by taking short weekend trips to rural areas offering unique accommodations that allow them to be immersed with nature without sacrificing the luxuries of a hotel room.

A bubble tent by Bubble Huts LLC offers just that!

Bubble Tents are designed either all clear or with a privacy option allowing for guests to be up-close and personal with nature while providing a 360-degree unobstructed view of the night sky for the ultimate stargazing experience while lying comfortably in bed.

With Bubble Tents renting for as much as $200 per night on Airbnb, many savvy farmers and landowners have discovered that by hosting Glampers on their properties they can diversify their income streams, and insulate themselves from some of the risks associated with farming such as poor crop yields due to unpredictable weather.

Rural areas are also becoming increasingly popular destinations for corporate retreats, wedding parties, family gatherings and countless other groups looking for the perfect setting to host their events.

Farmers, landowners, and other rural entrepreneurs are taking advantage of this trend by offering a multitude of hospitality options, combined with a dizzying array of activities to create amazing experiences that form lasting memories and keep their guests returning year after year.

Rural tourism not only provides an essential contribution to the local economy, but it also creates employment opportunities where jobs can be scarce or require traveling great distances to acquire.
