Experience the Luxurious Glamping Trend in Arizona

Glamping is glamorous camping. Glamping is nothing like the family camping trips a lot of people remember from childhood. Glamping, whether in tents or cabins, is currently the hottest vacation trend. Glamping merges luxurious accommodations with nature for the ultimate travel destination. Guests at glamping resorts sleep under canvas in well-appointed accommodations. A seven-day glamping vacation was included in the Oscar swag bag for runner-up nominees for best actor/actress, supporting actor/actress and director categories this year. Solange Knowles, American actress, model, singer and  songwriter, along with Clemmie Moody, English journalist and associate features editor at the Daily Mirror have both spent the night under canvas glamping.  

  • Arizona Outback Adventures:  Arizona Outback Adventures offers glamping opportunities. The staff of Arizona Outback Adventures will set up camp before guests arrive and provide meals. Active guests may select a river rafting voyage, a guided hiking quest, explore the canyons, a rock climbing adventure or perhaps all four. The outfitter offers bike, kayak and paddle board rentals. Guests often view the wild horses of Salt River in a beautiful natural setting. Glampers enjoy the spectacular display of color as the sun sets in Arizona. The group will provide all transportation and all camping supplies. Visit the website or call 1-866-455-1601 for reservations.
  • The Phoenician:  The Phoenician, a luxury resort and spa, provides glamping opportunities upon request.
