These guys invented luxury glamping tours after launching their first of 10 locations in 2012 in the scenic Montana setting of Yellowstone. The Under Canvas concept was built from the ground up with its upscale safari-inspired destinations, distinguished by oversized canvas tents, rustic West Elm furnishings, wood-burning stoves and private patios. Each location offers extraordinary scenery and prime real estate, allowing campers of all ages to relax while taking in the sights.
Under Canvas offers suite options rivaling swanky hotels with king-size beds decked out in luxury linens, organic bath products, USB batteries, and running hot water. Adjoining smaller sized tents with twin beds are perfect for your happy mini campers and the family dog. Free programming varies by venue, featuring yoga classes, crafts for kids, nightly bonfires, s’mores, live acoustic music, and outdoor games . Adventurous eaters will appreciate the on-site beer gardens that offer upscale cart meals ranging from chickpea tacos, pesto zucchini to roast trout, and plenty of kid-friendly items.
Capture views where buffalo roam and deer and antelope graze at their brand new outpost in Bryce Canyon National Park. Explore the park at your leisure with an electric bike rental – you deserve a dose of life in the slow lane. The camp, nestled along the juniper forest, has 50 safari-style tents set against its signature backdrop of Utah’s towering red rocks. Book early to secure the coveted Stargazer tent, which features a ceiling window so you can line up with the stars as you drift off to sleep.
Those looking for a world-class climbing and hiking getaway will love the desert landscape just outside of Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and the towering mountains of Moab. Explore new activities through their adventure concierge with planned canyoning adventures, white water rafting or a Hummer safari.
Strike gold as you explore South Dakota’s Black Hills and admire the historic landmarks of Mount Rushmore while sleeping in what was once a gold mining boom town. Wake up to the smell of Ponderosa pines, freshly roasted coffee, and thickly sliced home roasted pork belly over cage-free eggs at this base camp. Bluestone Land premium espresso beverages are served at all Under Canvas locations.
Acadia fits the bill when you take in Maine’s coastal sights from your chic waterfront accommodation in a canvas tent. Set sail on the former pirate ship Esther Irene for a private pirate cruise. Of course, a Maine vacation isn’t complete without Lobster rolls al fresco on their on-site dining terrace. With a hybrid luxury campsite like Under Canvas, sleeping under the stars rivals the experience of any five-star hotel.
