Croatia, as one of the leading tourist countries in the Mediterranean, offers a whole range of different accommodation capacities. Hotel accommodation, rooms and apartments can be found at every turn. Hostels are very popular in larger cities. We also have a large number of campsites and recently an increasing number of glamping destinations. In this blog, we will write about camping in Croatia, as well as the fast-growing glamping
trend that is slowly but surely making its way in Croatian tourism.
Why go for a camping and glamping?
Many people spend a large part of the year in the office, in the car and in the apartment where they live out of harmony with nature. The fast pace of life sometimes does not allow frequent stays in nature, and especially spending the night there. Camping has always been a human need that they strived for and practiced. Sleeping in tents is a popular form of vacation, as is owning a caravan that allows for flexibility and mobility. Camping and glamping connect people with nature and give them the opportunity to spend as much time as possible in breathtaking locations, in the immediate vicinity of the sea, rivers, forests or some wonderful mountains. Likewise, you will be surrounded by people who live the same philosophy of life as you, and enjoy changing experiences.
What is glamping?
Camping has been one of the most popular forms of overnight stays in the world for decades. There are various campsites in interesting locations that offer tourists sleeping options in several ways. The most common way is to sleep in a caravan or camper. You can come to the camp with your own vehicle, and in some camps you can even rent a caravan. Camps are supplied with electricity, water and common areas for cooking, washing and bathrooms. The better camps even have playgrounds for children, swimming pools, sports fields and many other accompanying facilities. In addition to sleeping in mobile homes, each camp offers guests the option of setting up their own tent. As a rule, this way of traveling is the cheapest. Camping, however, is not for everyone, and glamping was created for those with refined taste. Glamping is a mixture of glamor and camping. Glamping adds a touch of luxury to camping.
A lot of travelers today yearn for nature, but they don't just decide for real camping, which can be done in various ways. Most of the traditional ones include all kinds of chores like setting up tents, lighting fires, and sharing common areas with other guests. Glamping accommodations consist of glamorous tents that are furnished like a five-star resort and equipped with basic amenities, including kitchens and fully functional bathrooms with showers, air conditioners, televisions, and beautiful terraces with views. Glamping is, of course, a bit more expensive than real camping, but for the comfort you get, that's quite logical.
