Glamping, a blend of the words “glamour” and “camping,” is a rapidly growing trend for those who love snoozing in the great outdoors. It’s the intersection of modern luxury and a rustic experience; upscale form and function, and nirvana. The concept of a yurt—a combination tent/house/hut—is nothing new. If you really think about the history of some of the world’s nomadic cultures, it’s how people lived long before there were established communities and modern cities. Although at their core yurts consisted of canvas “walls” held up with metal or wooden framing materials and typically set upon a wooden platform, sans “manmade” heat or plumbing, today’s upscale yurts are often anything but. The following are three amazing yurts in Northern California that just may speak to your particular glamping penchant!
Whether a stand-alone on the precipice of a cliff, at a luxurious eco-lodge, or within a traditional campground setting, yurts—and some truly fabulous ones at that—are a very popular way to enjoy the great outdoors.
