Earlier this week we had a blog explaining what is glamping (link of blog) and now we want to give you some quick recommendation on what to bring when going glamping at a resort or at a glamping camp.
When going to visit a glamping resort it is advised to pack light because after all you are there to relax. Most guest tents provide plush robes, slippers, spa slippers, hair dryer, all-natural amenities (shampoo, lotion, conditioner, cotton balls, q-tips), all-natural sunscreen (for children and adults), all-natural insect repellant lotion and spray, ultra-fluffy white towels, and laundry service. They also provides rain pants and jackets, rain boots, umbrellas, hats, gloves, floater suits for whale watching and ocean fishing, life jackets, wet suits for surfing and stand up paddle boarding, fishing gear and waders in all sizes for all ages.
At a glamping camp, it is a different story. One needs to have their own gear for all the activities they would like to do. In the same way, they may need to bring their own food because not every glamping camp has food available on site. You may then ask yourself, what is the difference between glamping and camping? The difference is what is found in the tent and the comfort felt sleeping in a bed rather than on the floor.
Here is a list of essentials for your trip whether you are going to a resort or just a glamping camp:
|Camera, Batteries, Chargers||Athletic and/or yoga wear (optional)|
|Sunglasses, Hats||Base layer top and bottom – the lightweight sort for skiing is perfect|
|Toiletries||Warm fleece layers (ie: vest, sweater, jacket)|
|Medications; Ibuprofen and allergy relief||Northwest or other rain and wind proof jacket|
|Waterproof hiking shoes or boots||Outdoor pants and shorts|
|Running shoes, sandals (optional)||Jeans for horseback riding (optional)|
|Bathing Suit for hot tubs and saunas||Moisture wicking sports shirts – long and short sleeve|
