Glamping: Discover Glamorous Camping Adventures in Tirol

Updated on 20.05.2016 in Recommendations

‘Glamping’ offers outdoor enthusiasts an upgrade on rest and recreation. It’s a new word for a new kind of travel, defined as glamorous camping. Glamping is a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury. When you’re glamping, there’s no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to unroll, no fire to build. It’s the perfect compromise for those who want to experience clear, starry nights and crisp, dewy mornings, as well as immediate access to outdoor recreation, with the comfort and amenities often sacrificed by tent camping.

Tirol has campsites that feature a wide array of spa, sports and recreational facilities for luxury camping in style – which could, in fact, already be called glamping. Yet, there are more opportunities to immerse in nature without sacrificing modern comforts in Tirol. It’s OK to admit you’re not the “rustic” type, so trade sleeping on the ground for the cosy beds of these one-of-a-kind glamping opportunities.

Natterersee Lake Nature Resort

Natterersee Lake Nature Resort delivers an upscale safari-tent experience for five to eight guests, barrel cabins for those who enjoy life in twos and Wood Lodges that sleep two to four people in full comfort. The Safari Lodge Tents were not named after iconic Tirol animals like golden eagle, chamois and ibex – instead they bear the names of wild African animals. Their covered lounge decks, however, are perfect for views of Tirol’s incredible mountain scenery. The ideal home base for your own Tirol photo safari…

The Alpine Lodges in Längenfeld in the Ötztal Valley are the ideal home base for your own mountain adventure in Tirol. Built from local stone pine and fir wood, the lodges sleep up to six people in full comfort. For a night, a week or even longer, you can have your own cabin in the mountains!

Camping Dreiländereck Tirol

The scenery here in Tirol Oberland Region, situated at the convergence of Austria’s borders to Italy and Switzerland, is stunning. Aptly named, the log cabins called ‘Bergzauber’, literally mountain magic, will cast a spell on you. Seize the opportunity to sleep in a barrel, much like Diogenes himself. In contrast to this grumpy Greek philosopher, who had a dislike of socialising, there’s space for two in a barrel cabin. Plus, you can even bring a child if you wish.

Want more glamping options, Tirol style? Ranging from luxury to simple mountain living, here are huts and mountain lodges to get you inspired for the holiday of a lifetime. Cabin rentals that are perfect for your holiday.

Satiating her wanderlust, Anne Gabl feels equally at home in faraway places as on Tirol’s mountains and snowy slopes. And she enjoys sharing her mountain adventures and beautiful photos that show the attraction of all of them.
