While the term “glamping”, meaning glamorous camping, has only been around for about a decade, the concept of enjoying a natural setting in comfort and luxury goes back centuries. When King Henry VIII of England and Francis I of France met in 1529 some 2,800 tents and marquees were erected, and fountains ran with red wine. At around the same time, the Ottomans had ostentatious, palatial tents transported from one military mission to the next. Entire teams of artisans traveled with the army to erect and maintain these imperial tents.
Many forms of glamping are thriving today for the discerning traveler. The Salt Spring Yurt embodies the perfect combination of a beautiful and relaxing natural surrounding and comfortable accommodation in easy reach of amenities and activities. Check out all the great features: kitchen, ensuite bathroom, sleeping accomodation, and patio.
