Camping, Glamping, Trending: These are the Glamping Trends 2022

7 minutes

glamping is on everyone's lips and one of the most popular forms of vacation in recent years. Now he goes Luxury tent vacation to the next round. 

That's especially true in the last few years luxury camping , which actually comes from the USA, has become a real megatrend, to the delight of glamping tent manufacturers, of course. In 2022, too, the enthusiasm for glamping will not level off and the "travel trend" will continue. 

While initially "glamorous camping" could only be found on campsites, mobile homes or in dedicated glamping resorts, the popular ones are luxury tents also available in hotel gardens, in the middle of the forest or by the lake anywhere in Europe. Popular destinations for glamping holidays are Italy, the Netherlands, Austria and Germany. But the trend has already arrived in Africa and across the entire Alps. 

In addition, any glamping accommodations are constantly being expanded, reconsidered and optimized. Some glamping sites even offer a whirlpool, playgrounds or a slide paradise. Exceptional accommodations such as luxury tents in the form of lounges, igloos, tiny houses, yurts, tree houses, wigwams, sleeping barrels, tipis and safari tents serve as dwellings.

The top glamping trends of 2022

  • Glamping in the hotel

One of the most popular trends in 2022 is glamping in the hotel. Many hotels have gardens or other green areas that are not used or only insufficiently used. In order to create additional accommodation capacities and to find sustainable solutions for unused space, Glamping has recently established itself in the hotel.

Glamping lounges in a wide variety of facilities are integrated into the hotel's operations and equipped in such a way that guests have the comfort of a hotel room in the middle of nature - almost an outdoor hotel. Unlike normal camping holidays, glamping in the hotel is not only suitable for summer holidays, but also works perfectly in winter.

  • Glamping in your own garden

Especially due to the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many people resort to holidays at home. Instead of going on a trip, some want to buy a glamping tent and put it in their garden. There you can set up the glamping lounges individually and use them as often and as long as you like. If you don't want to sleep in it, you can actually convert it into a home office room.

  • Tipi instead of holiday home

Some glamping operators currently rely on tipis. These are traditional tent houses that have already been used by the indigenous people of America. These are usually made of robust fabric and have become a popular alternative to the typical holiday home, giving the glamping a very special flair.

  • Glamping in the treehouse

A glamping experience of a special kind is glamping in the treehouse. For those who want to go high, there is now the opportunity to stay in a luxurious tree house. Because glamping in the treehouse is becoming more and more popular. The fully equipped huts, which can be reached by ladders, convince with a very special charm.

  • Glamping at festivals

Double bed instead of sleeping mat is now the motto at festivals! Who doesn't know it: You would really like to go to a festival, but have absolutely no desire to sleep in a 4-man tent next to hundreds of other visitors. And what to do when it rains? Since tents can usually only withstand rain for a short time, it can easily happen that your entire luggage gets soaked. That's why some festival operators are now relying on glamping. Depending on the provider, the glamping tents are sometimes even windproof and waterproof, and a lot more robust and private than normal tents. Even the Oktoberfest is going glamping this year.

  • Multi purpose glamping

Less a trend for vacationers, more a trend at hoteliers or campsite operators is not only to integrate the luxury tents into their operations as additional space, but simply to convert them if necessary. This is why some glamping lounges are allowed to be "hotel rooms" for one week, and the next they are converted into private dining locations or relaxation rooms by the pool. This is also in the spirit of sustainability, because individual tents can be used for several purposes and are therefore never empty.

  • Glamping as a workspace

Glamping as a workspace may sound a bit strange at the beginning, but has certainly become a new trend, as you can easily see from the many social media posts. In times when many employees increasingly work from home and are only digitally connected with the other employees of the company, "Remote Work from Abroad" or "Work Action" (working on holiday) has become increasingly popular. The so-called digital nomads, i.e. people who carry out their work mainly using digital tools, often transfer their work to a distant place of their choice and into nature. More and more glamping is being used for this purpose. Thus, the workers are:inside in the fresh air, and at the same time they can rely on the luxurious furnishings of a hotel room or workplace.

Sustainability in particular is becoming more and more important in tourism and new solutions are constantly emerging to make this industry more ecological in the long term. Glamping is a step in the right direction to make your next vacation at least a little bit greener.
