Glamping in nature - sustainable and comfortable overnight stay in the great outdoors

What is glamping?

Glamping stands for glamorous camping. It is still a fairly new camping trend whose name is a combination of the English words glamorous and camping. With glamping, a comfortable and fully equipped glamping tent is provided so that you can spend the night in the middle of nature without having to do without comfort. You don't need your own camping equipment. Campspace offers the most beautiful glamping tents for comfortable outdoor adventures. Whether in a tipi tent, a yurt or another glamping tent, with Campspace you can spend the night in the middle of nature, far away from mass tourism and crowds.

Campspace Glamping in Europe

The fact that glamping is still a fairly young trend is shown by a survey, according to which only 60% of respondents had already heard of glamping in 2017. However, 44% of the respondents could well imagine that glamping could be something for them. And precisely these key figures reflect the trend. Because while more and more people are drawn out into nature, spending the night on a sleeping mat doesn't trigger holiday feelings for everyone. While some campers love the simplicity of camping, other nature lovers would rather not do without a real bed. Glamping offers the perfect opportunity to spend the night in the middle of nature without having to compromise on comfort.

On Campspace, thousands of hosts worldwide open the gates to their gardens, farms or secluded forest plots for nature lovers. Several hundred of these small and mostly privately run Campspace campsites offer fully equipped glamping tents. Some of the hosts offer facilities such as a sauna, a hottub or even catering in addition to the furnished tent. Here, the glamping trip becomes a wellness experience.

Glamping in winter with a warm shower and heating

During the cooler seasons, glamping is a popular alternative even for otherwise hardy campers. Because while nights on an air mattress in your own igloo tent can be chilly in autumn and winter, glamping offers a warm, sometimes even heated bed. Because many glamping tents are equipped with heating or a small fireplace and generally offer more space than ordinary camping tents. So you can retreat here during a rainstorm or warm up again under a warm shower after a long winter hike.

3 reasons why Campspace glamping is sustainable

1. Glamping is ideal for travelling by bike or train

Over 70% of the CO2 emissions of the global tourism industry are due to travel by plane and car. So if you plan a glamping holiday close to home, you can save an incredible amount of CO2. Because the glamping tent is already fully equipped, you don't need to bring much with you apart from your own clothes, cosmetics and possibly a book or a pack of cards. The light luggage then also makes it possible to travel by public transport or even by bicycle. Most of the usual travel industry emissions can therefore be avoided here.

2. Glamping tents are resource-saving accommodations

More than 20% of the CO2 emissions of the global tourism industry are due to accommodation. A glamping tent in nature is much more environmentally friendly than a holiday villa with a heated pool or a hotel room with air conditioning. This is because resources are not only used in the consumption of electricity and gas during the stay, but also in the construction of the accommodation and the resulting soil sealing. Those who choose glamping in nature can also minimise the ecological footprint of their trip in terms of accommodation. 

3. Campspace hosts take sustainability measures

Booking a glamping holiday through Campspace means staying on someone else's nature-loving land. Our hosts come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Whether marine chemist Gerd, a eight-member team of sustainable entrepreneurs or eco-entrepreneur Frits, they are all united by their love of nature. They not only look after their idyllic spot on earth with a lot of love, but also implement sustainability measures that go with their campspace to make it as environmentally friendly as possible. These sustainability measures can range from waste separation and solar systems to the use of grey water and the provision of vegan meals or biodynamic farming. The specific measures that a campspace practices can be found in the description of the respective glamping site.
