Wine tasting 

Glamping resorts all over the world plan exquisite wine tasting events for visitors and glampers.  A luxurious canvas tent is equipped with all modern needs, coupled with this you can spend the day exploring the vineyards and enjoying locally produced wine. It’s a real royal experience with both nature and culture.  Alternatively, if you’re not actually on a vineyard, you can buy some of your favorite local wines and create a special wine tasting evening complete with a charcuterie board and other snacks for friends or family right at home.

Birthday parties 

Want to create the perfect birthday party for your teenage kid? Set up a luxurious glamping slumber party to get your kids to love you! You can hire a glamping business to design a themed birthday or rent and buy a comfortable canvas bell tent and decorate the place as you wish.  One of the best parts of this is that you’re probably going to be pitching the tent in your backyard, so you’re just a stone’s throw away from anything inside the house if you forget something. At the same time, the kids get to feel closer to nature and like they’re on vacation – even though you’re right at home!
