Types of Glamping

Many of us look at photos and videos of unspoiled nature and dream of seeing it with our own eyes. However, not many are willing to sacrifice even for a short time the living conditions to which they are accustomed when traveling around the world and staying in high-quality, chain hotels. In these pristine, undeveloped in terms of infrastructure, sometimes it is not that comfortable to spend the night, even hands with warm water can not wash.

And that’s where glamping comes in.

This type of tourism is suitable even for those people who are used to luxury conditions. It is for spending time in nature and staying in comfortable conditions and was invented by glamping. In this case, their construction changes the environment minimally, both in the process of their construction and in the course of their operation. This publication describes the main types of housing that are offered in the glamping.

Eco-houses are frame houses, in the process of construction and operation of which there is minimal impact on the environment.

Treehouse is another type of eco-house. Such houses are usually elevated above the ground and designed on the crown of a tree or several trees.

Tree houses are a classic example of ecological construction because they don’t require cutting down forests to build them. And the trees themselves become part of these homes, which gives them a unique and attractive.

The most recent trend is the glass or mirror houses on the tree, which in addition reflect the environment.


The most popular type of eco-house. The Barnhouse is an architectural style on the verge of three current trends: loft, minimalism, and bio-eco. Barnhouse is a balance between the past and the future. Its concept reflects a new, simple and comfortable life, but with the memory of ancestors and with respect for the landscape.

Only natural and sustainable materials are used for construction. Barnhouse-style home design is characterized by minimalism, strict geometry, and straight outlines. One-story structures with an attic are welcome. Two-story structures are built much less frequently.

The houses are characterized by a gable roof, which has a steep slope, as well as single and broken roofs. The Barnhouse seamlessly combines the rustic comfort of a wooden house with modern glazing and trendy furniture. Scandinavian Barnhouse-style houses are made in neutral and monochrome colors.
