Level up your next camping adventure with these top luxury glamping experiences in Canada
With spring in the air and Covid restrictions finally easing up, families all over Canada – and beyond – are gearing up for their camping explorations in the wilderness. But if you’ve been keeping up with the trends of late, you’ll know that pitching your tent is so passé. Instead, Canadians are hyping the latest-vacation craze – glamping.
Mixing glamorous amenities with camping out in the wild, this camping alternative typically comes pre-assembled and accessorized with luxurious features. And as the trend gains more popularity, it’s no surprise that the camping capital of the world is already hosting some incredible glamping destinations to check out this summer.
Here are our top five picks for luxury glamping experiences across Canada.
Get pampered with hospitality while enjoying the great outdoors at Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge on Vancouver Island. King or queen-sized beds, en suite bathrooms with heated floors, antique dressers, heirloom china, thermostat-controlled heating, chef-created cuisine, and complimentary Wi-Fi access are just some of the amenities you can expect here. Whether you choose to relax with a personal message, learn to surf on a private beach, or explore hidden inlets by kayak, Clayoquot Wilderness Resort is the perfect getaway for families and couples of all ages.
Direct from France comes the ingenious Huttopia tent. Created in Europe but tailored to perfection in Québec, Huttopia tents provide convenient, comfortable accommodation in 16 of Québec’s 23 national parks. Built atop a 4 by 7-metre wooden platform, the dwelling’s canvas walls and roof enclose a roomy space that can sleep up to 5 people. Beds, lighting, heating, a small fridge, dishes, and an outdoor two-burner stove provide comforts rarely found on a typical camping site.
This PEI hideaway is all about Shinrin‑you, the Japanese practice of forest bathing. Set up on wooden decks, these white canvas geodesic domes come with plenty of outdoor living space, a hot tub and a barbecue. Inside, guests will find a fully functional kitchen and comfortable beds. The expansive window at the back of your pod will feel like you’ve stepped inside your laptop screensaver.
With nine glamping tents located just steps from the water, this wilderness resort is deep in the northwest of Newfoundland – perfect for those who really want to get away from life in the city. From your tent’s hand-crafted log frames sourced from the surrounding forest and processed at a family-owned sawmill to the homemade quilts on the beds, every detail is lovingly considered and designed to give you an authentic Newfoundland experience. Spend the day stand-up paddleboarding and fall asleep to the sounds of waves crashing by the shore.

Lakeway Houseboat Vacations in New Brunswick offer opulent accommodation in their “cottages on the water.” Choose from three luxurious floating vacation homes with full kitchens, full bathrooms, multiple bedrooms, TVs, deck BBQs, hot tubs, fireplaces and even waterslides. Sail along the St. John River, sunbathe on the upper deck or dock at picturesque Mactaquac Provincial Park for a round of golf.
