Ten New European Glamping Adventures for 2020

Host Writer
Published 03/01/2020 Ten New European Glamping Adventures for 2020


How about starting a new decade with a wish list filled with outdoor adventures instead of the usual dull resolutions to diet or tidy the house more?

Sounds like a pretty good place to start to us, but then we are rather biased, as we have an ever-increasing range of impossibly exciting glamping accommodation to be found in far-reaching corners of the globe, and it's our mission to send you there.

So, with our focus firmly on European escapes on this occasion, we take you to untouched Italy for a geodome adventure, to four off-grid settings in France for some pretty unrivalled cabin fever, and off to an authentic corner of Portugal with some beautiful eco-luxe roundhouses.

Then a quick hop over to The Netherlands for some glamping pod style architectural marvels, before returning to the UK for some lakeside bell tent action, a rustic horsebox and an eco camp-and glamp wonderland in Wales. 

With so much to pack in, you might want to ask for some pre-emptive extra leave, nice and early!
