Let’s Go on a Glamping Trip

Glamping is the new camping.

Do you love being outdoors but absolutely detest the bugs, dirt and other discomforts you have to bear when you go camping traditionally? Thankfully these are all things of the past because of glamping. When you go glamping, you can do a lot more things and experience a whole lot more, knowing that at the end of the day you can soak in a hot tub and luxuriate as if you were in a spa!

So without needing to worry about having to get back and cook over a fire or gas stove, you can really let yourself go and enjoy these five unbeatable activities.

1. Go Hang Gliding

Hang gliding isn’t for the faint hearted. It’s an activity that requires courage. But it’s one of the most thrilling experiences you can ever have. With lots of cliffs to jump off from in California, it only requires you to ask at the glamping sites whether they offer this service or not. Hang gliding is best done in the late afternoon or early morning. Better yet, why not hang glide as the sun is setting for spectacular views!

Check out a few of these places near glamping sites in California.

2. Go Bungee Jumping

Bungee jumping is another activity that should be on your bucket list! This is certainly an activity that will get your blood rushing to your head in a matter of seconds. It’s worth the thrill if you ask us. It’s difficult to explain just how free you’ll feel in that moment as you jump off the ledge and do something that’s outside your comfort zone. If you plan to go bungee jumping in California during your glamping trip this is the best site to check out.

3. Go to the Beach and Build a Sandcastle!

Sounds super silly right? Yes, but building a sandcastle can be tons of fun, especially if you have little children. Create memories to last a lifetime with this one. It’s a fun thing to do especially if you choose glamping sites like Treebones Resort in California, which has a nearby beach. Enjoy a swim in the cool waters while you’re there. Learn how to skip stones too! Don’t be shy – you’re never too old to learn. Make a day out of it and take some packed food for a picnic.

4. Go Fishing/Canoeing/Kayaking/Water Skiing

While you’re by the water, you might as well enquire if there’s a boat you can hire out to go fishing. If you are a dad and want to spend quality time with your kids, this is a great father-son bonding activity. You can also opt to go canoeing or kayaking if fishing isn’t your cup of tea. If you run out of other water activities to engage in, check if there’s water skiing. This one is always popular.

5. Share Stories Around A Campfire

What’s a glamping trip without a time for sharing stories – in particular ghost stories. You don’t have to share ghost stories, but do set aside time to share stories with those you’ve traveled with. These can be stories of your travels across the country, the world, or even just some of the life lessons you’ve learnt along the way. You’ll be surprised by the things you learn about others when you’re seated around a bonfire sharing hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows. There’s something about the soft glow of the fire and the warmth that makes people open up readily.


If you take time to plan your trips, you can get so much more out of them. Let them be a time of rest, relaxation, fun and getting to know people better. Glamping is the new camping and it can be incredibly fun. Happy glamping!
