What to know before buying a Glamping Tent by White Duck Outdoors

The winter holidays are upon us, and people all over the world are slowing down and taking some time off after quite a busy and unique year to get some rest and reconnect with family and friends.

During this time of year through the snow season, people often go on vacation.

Some find that going on a cruise is their vacation of choice while others prefer to experience various destinations all over the world.

This year, however, with an ongoing pandemic, a lot of those travel plans have been shelved. This is as a result of travel restrictions in countries worldwide. People are thus turning to alternative means of enjoying the winter holidays, such as having smaller, intimate family dinners or utilizing local hotels to minimize traveling. Another option that one could consider is camping in the snow. This is quite a fun and viable option as it involves you getting out of the house and spending some time in snowy nature, without the risky implications that would otherwise arise from traveling. Just be sure to have all your snow season accessories with you!


The thought of camping in the snow, for some, however, does not sound so ideal. This is because they picture having to be out in the cold with bugs and mosquitoes keeping them up all night. This is not the type of camping that we have in mind for you, but rather, glamping. This is a type of camping that is a bit more glamorous than the traditional concept of camping, hence the name. Glamping sites often have the usual amenities that we use in our day to day lives, despite being out in cold snowy nature. This could be a Wi-fi connection, cooking facilities, and comfortable shelter while you sit there in your polarized sunglasses, enjoying the crisp winter sunny landscape. If you would want to try out glamping this winter holiday, below we have a couple of tips to help you with that:

  • Find shelter

    The first thing to consider before going glamping is where you are going to spend the night. This is particularly important as you want a type of tent that you will feel comfortable all night to make your experience quite comfortable.

    To have the most fun experience, you will probably take on this adventure alongside your friends and family. It is thus important that you put this into consideration especially when purchasing a tent. Go for a spacious family tent that will allow at least two persons to sleep comfortably throughout the night, without feeling cramped.
  • Material

    To ensure a good glamping experience, your tent should be able to withstand different types of weather, as when you are out in nature you can expect either rain, sunshine and snow. As such, please have a look at the material of your tent before purchasing and make sure that it will repel and not absorb the rain. Moreover, go for a material like cotton which will ensure that the tent is warm and cozy at night, else you will not be able to sleep due to the chilly temperatures that the night brings.
  • Ease of setup

    As you buy a glamping tent, ask for a quick demonstration of how to set up the tent. This will help you go for one that is easy to set up in a short amount of time, with the least amount of effort.

Final Word

When buying a glamping tent, there are several things to consider. First, you should think about the size of the tent and how many people it can accommodate. It is also important to look at the quality of the tent and make sure it is made of strong, waterproof materials. Additionally, you should consider the weight of the tent and how easily it can be transported. Furthermore, you should check for any additional features such as mesh windows or adjustable poles. Finally, you should look at the price of the tent and make sure it fits within your budget.

Question Time

What should I look for when buying a tent?

Firstly, the size of the tent is important. It should be big enough to accommodate the number of people who will be using it, plus any additional items such as camping chairs and sleeping bags. Secondly, the material of the tent should be taken into consideration. A good quality tent should be waterproof, windproof and UV resistant. Thirdly, the tent's ventilation system should be checked to ensure that it will provide adequate air circulation. Finally, the tent's poles should be strong and durable, as they will need to withstand the elements.

What is better camping or glamping?

Camping and glamping both offer unique outdoor experiences, but which one is better? It really depends on personal preference. Camping is a great way to get close to nature and enjoy the outdoors, while glamping is a more luxurious way to enjoy the outdoors. For those who enjoy the outdoors but don't want to give up the comforts of home, glamping is the way to go. Buying a glamping tent is a great way to get started. These tents come in all shapes and sizes and are designed for maximum comfort. They are usually outfitted with air conditioning, electricity, and even a kitchenette.

What should you not keep in a tent?

Heavy items such as large appliances and electronics should be avoided as they can damage the tent fabric or cause it to collapse. Additionally, food items should never be stored in the tent as they can attract animals and insects. It is also important to avoid keeping any items that could cause a fire hazard, such as candles or matches. Finally, any items that are highly flammable, such as gasoline or propane tanks, should not be stored in the tent.

Do glamping pods have toilets?

Glamping tents provide a unique and luxurious camping experience, often with amenities such as air conditioning and electricity. But one important question to consider when buying a glamping tent is whether or not it has a toilet. Generally, glamping pods do not come with toilets and they must be rented separately. However, some glamping tents may come with a private bathroom or a nearby shared bathroom facility. If you are looking for a more rustic experience, you may opt to use a portable camping toilet instead.
