This post contains some affiliate links. Click here to find out more.

If you love the idea of camping but don’t want to give up all of your creature comforts, then glamping holidays have got you covered. While the idea of glamping dates back to the 1300s when Turkish Ottomans built luxurious tent cities, the modern glamping movement began around 2005.

These days glamping helps you connect with nature and get away from it all without struggling with tents, sleeping bags and canned food. And if you’re dreaming of a glamping holiday in America there are some pretty incredible ways to go. Here’s a round up of some of the best.

The Resort at Paws Up, Montana

In an unspoiled wilderness near the Rocky Mountains in Montana, The Resort at Paws Up is a perfect setting for a safari-style glamping experience. From mid May until mid October there are six luxury campsites with gorgeous glamping tents complete with en suite bathrooms, including some with freestanding baths like you can see in the photo at the top of this story and below.
