Glamping in winter

The glamping we all know and love is also a great way to holiday in winter! You have the best of both worlds: An invigorating winter camping experience in nature combined with warmth, comfort and luxury. Bell tents, safari tents and yurts are a wonderful way to go winter camping with the promise of a warm bed at night. The winter glamping options shown here are heated with access to hot showers. All you need to bring are warm clothes, a good book and a bottle of wine! Read on for tips on what to bring when winter glamping.

What to bring when glamping in the winter

 There are some things you need to bring along whenever you go glamping, like a loved one or friend, a delicious picnic and something to keep you entertained as you laze around your bell tent. When you glamp during winter, however, other things should also be kept in mind.

  1. Warm shoes, clothes, outerwear and pyjamas. Remember to keep your hands, feet and head warm at all times to avoid lowering your body temperature! When bundled up in bed, you'll feel toasty but when out and about during the day, you should be mindful.
  2. A thermos and your favourite teas. Why not bring some fresh mint, ginger, or hot chocolate, so you can keep your thermos full at all times?
  3. A good book or board game. Winter glamping will offer the best cosy evenings to lose yourself in a book or challenge your friend or partner to a game of chess, rummikub or cards!
  4. The intention to unwind. There's nothing like the crisp air of winter to contrast with your daily life sat at your desk! Remember to make the most out of being outdoors by being mindful and leaving your stresses at home!

Winter glamping activities in nature

Winter landscapes in Europe offer numerous opportunities for outdoor activities during winter camping. So put on your warm clothes and try the following activities!

1. Tobogganing/sledging

Tobogganing isn't only fun for children, it's an exciting outdoor activity for anyone who loves snow and speedy descents. Wherever you can find small hills or mountains, take your sledge and off you go! Just remember to be considerate of nature and private land belonging to farmers while tobogganing. 

2. Cross-country skiing trails

The word Loipen comes from Norwegian and means cross-country skiing. In Germany there are more than 2000 varied cross-country trails, but you don't need a trail to do it! Cross-country skiing is extremely fun, but also great exercise that allows you to enjoy snow-covered nature.

3. Hiking

A hike in winter has special charm to it. Peaceful silence in snow-covered forests with clear air is rejuvenating like nothing else. With the right clothing, nothing stands in your way –just keep in mind that in winter, the days are shorter so it would be wise to choose shorter hiking trails.
