Canada is famous as a camper’s paradise. After all, only 20% of the country is inhabited, leaving plenty of room to pitch a tent and gather around a crackling fire. But if the thoughts of ‘pitching the tent’ fill you dread, then fear not. There’s plenty of luxurious places to go glamping in Canada. You can experience the vast outdoors without giving up any home comforts.
Here’s our pick of the very best..
Best Places To Go Glamping In Canada
Fronterra is a boutique camping site and organic farm that aims to show guests how to reconnect to self-sustainability and simple living.
Each tent-suite features a kingsized bed, inside sitting lounge, ensuite bathroom with a hot shower and a private outdoor kitchen featuring a charcoal grill. Amenities include a private dock with water access to the beautiful beaches of North Beach Provincial Park just a 5 minute paddle away and great fishing in North Bay.
You can also enjoy the site’s permaculture vegetable gardens to source great farm fresh veggies. A must-visit to relax and switch off in peace.
This exclusive camp is only accessible by float plane. The site only hosts eight guests at any one time, so it’s very peaceful. The totally private, wall-to-wall carpeted safari-style tents are built on raised platforms and offer spectacular views. Inside, they have cosy beds, wood stoves, reindeer hide throw rugs and vintage wool blankets
There’s everything you’ll need for ultimate chill here, including a private chef. Outpost Co. prides itself in offering the ultimate unplugged experience.
Built with sustainability in mind, this seaside resort’s nine luxury tents boast locally handcrafted log frames, hand-stitched canvas, and solar lighting. Colourful bed coverings and propane heaters up the comfort level. As you relax in an Adirondack chair with latte in hand (each unit has a coffee machine), catch the sunrise and some of the province’s 350 bird species from your tent’s front deck.
This adult-only lodge has incredible domes in an Atlantic Canada forest. Enjoy a memory-foam bed and glass-door shower in a dream dome, or fall asleep counting constellations in a transparent-roofed stargazer dome. Either way, be sure to go for the Japanese wood-fired hot tub add-on!
For those with traditional taste, two log cabins await: one deluxe, the other simple with a wood stove. It’s the perfect place to cosy up for a romantic weekend break.
You’ll find this boutique site near the northern tip of the Cabot Trail in South Harbour. This up-and-coming glamping destination has 23 swanky geodesic domes and seven classic teepees. Expect three-piece bathrooms, hot water, charcoal BBQs, and room service, with access to BBQs and picnic tables in the teepee village. On the doorstep to Cape Breton Highlands National Park, the resort connects guests to some of the province’s best hiking.
Time your glamping getaway to catch Canada’s winter northern lights or summer’s midnight sun. We reckon it’s best viewed from an aurora glass chalet in southern Yukon! While the northern lights are amazing to view even from an old-school tent, seeing them through floor-to-ceiling wrap-around windows while relaxing on a soft queen-size bed certainly raises the bar… You’ll never forget a stay here.
Want pure luxury? This is a Relais & Châteaux eco-safari-style resort that’s 45 minutes by seaplane from Vancouver. It’s easily one of the most unique luxury resorts for glamping in Canada… Intimate, authentic and eco-friendly. With just 25 white canvas tents, a wellness spa and expert chefs, it ticks all the boxes for a glamping trip.
While you’re here, you can also enjoy whale and bear watching, horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, yoga and heli-adventures.
