NEW YORK, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A global trend has caught fire that offers travel and outdoor enthusiasts an upgrade on rest and recreation. It's called glamping, a new term for a new kind of travel, originally defined as glamorous camping. Now the term glamping is evolving to encompass experiential travel vacations featuring non-traditional accommodations. Whether it's a safari-style tent, yurt, airstream trailer, eco-pod, igloo, hut, villa, teepee or treehouse, glamping is a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.
Experiential travel could be defined as heading off the beaten path and becoming immersed in the authentic local culture or environment. It's a journey involving a truly memorable experience that will enrich a person's life and improve the way that they connect with both loved ones and with the world.
Glamping.com enables visitors to explore this form of travel by featuring a refined collection of destinations from around the world that best fulfill their experiential travel wish list. Glamping.com is unique in that it has established a set of standards that properties must meet to be admitted into the collection -- including a mandatory 4-star or higher rating on TripAdvisor amongst others.
