For a couple of years now glamping has been a go-to getaway, bridging the gap between a country bed and breakfast and traditional sleep-on-the-floor camping. The only problem has been figuring out where and how to book it – unlike hotels and serviced apartments, there hasn’t really been a platform to aggregate all the different options.
That’s where Glamping Hub comes in. Like Airbnb for glamping, the US-based platform lets users search for a range of accommodation types around the world. Glampers just plug in their travel dates and are shown everything from yurts to safari tents to campervans to treehouses. Filters allow you to refine the results for pet-friendly lodgings, wi-fi and other amenities. And if your preferred accommodation is an igloo or a cave, you can filter for that, too.
There are more than 32,000 nature-based accommodations to choose from around the globe, from cabins in Yosemite to a safari tent in Kenya and camping domes near Machu Picchu in Peru. Closer to home, you’ll find eco-friendly tents with jacuzzis on Phillip Island in Victoria, a cottage on a farm in north-west NSW and a luxe tent with wi-fi just outside of Adelaide.
