The modern world has led to a reconsideration of our ways of life, and in this process, the search for authentic, nature-connected experiences has gained popularity.
Two phenomena that encapsulate this trend are yurts and glamping, offering a glimpse into traditional dwellings and at the same time, a more luxurious and comfortable way of camping.
Before we continue, IHCS invites you to find out what Glamping is if you still don’t know what it is. Do you already know the term? Well, let’s continue!
Yurts: A Glimpse into History and Tradition
Yurts have their roots in the vast steppes of Central Asia, especially associated with the nomadic culture of the Mongols. These circular, portable and easily dismantled structures have been the home of choice for communities moving in search of pasture for their livestock. The traditional yurt consists of a wooden or metal structure, known as a khan, with walls lined with felt or waterproof cloth.
The yurt’s unique shape makes it resistant to strong winds and adaptable to various climatic conditions. At its centre, an opening called a tumano allows light to enter and smoke to escape from the indoor cooker. This ingenious design has been perfected over centuries, providing a cosy and practical home.
And don’t think of these as flimsy constructions used only by nomadic herdsmen. Even Genghis Khan himself, the Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, lived in such a house.
Today, these yurts have transcended their nomadic roots and are used all over the world as temporary or even permanent dwellings. The adaptability of this construction has made them a popular choice for those seeking a deeper connection to nature without sacrificing modern comforts.
Yurts in the World of Glamping
The adaptability of yurts has naturally led to their inclusion in the world of glamping. These traditional structures bring a unique authenticity to the luxury wilderness experience.
Rather than being limited to conventional hotel rooms, glamping enthusiasts can immerse themselves in the culture and history of yurts while enjoying modern comforts.
This is why a harmonious balance between the ancient and the contemporary is offered. The interiors are decorated with exquisite fabrics, soft carpets and handcrafted details, creating a cosy and luxurious atmosphere.
Large, comfortable beds, often accompanied by wood-burning cookers, provide a sense of warmth and comfort, while views of the natural landscape from the central opening add a touch of magic.
Unique Yurt Experiences
The popularity of yurts in glamping has led to the creation of unique destinations and unforgettable experiences. From the mountains to the coast, yurts in glamping environments offer the chance to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life while enjoying the natural beauty.
Some yurt lodges offer unique activities such as horseback riding, guided trekking or even craft workshops to further immerse yourself in the local experience.
Combining the simplicity of yurts with personalised experiences creates lasting memories and a deeper connection to the surrounding nature and culture.
Unique Spaces for Every Experience
Yurts, with their distinctive circular design and adaptability, offer a versatile canvas for transforming glamping into a unique experience. From luxurious suites to meditation retreats, the diversity of yurt sizes allows for the creation of customised spaces to suit a variety of preferences and needs.
For couples in search of romance and exclusivity, the smaller sizes become luxury suites. With king-size beds, soft linens and romantic details.
Adventurous families will enjoy medium-sized yurts designed to take the days spent together to a new level.
We also recommend community yurts offering everything from cultural experiences to creative retreats. You see, there are endless possibilities.
You can see how the versatility of yurts becomes the key to the diversification of glamping. Thanks to this strategy it is very easy to become a reference in the sector in your area.
From IHCS I will speak frankly and honestly: “There are many campsites and hotels. To succeed you have to differentiate yourself from the competition. And what better way to differentiate yourself? With its ability to blend harmoniously into diverse landscapes, combined with comfort.
Thus, glamping with yurts is not simply an accommodation option, it is a journey into a deeper connection with nature and cultural authenticity, intertwining to offer not only shelter and comfort, but also the opportunity to immerse yourself in a world where simplicity and luxury coexist, creating memories that last long after the adventure comes to an end.
