Comfortably Wild

The Best Glamping Destinations in North America

Book Description

From river rafting between luxury camps, to harvesting vegetables for your farm-to-table dinner, to ziplining through a forest of treehouses, Comfortably Wild is an experiential travel guide like no other. Breaking the mold of big box hotels and transforming camping into a glamorous affair, North America’s one-of-a-kind retreats need their story told. Traveling over 56,000 miles between Canada and Costa Rica, authors Mike & Anne Howard have curated the best glamping destinations on the continent. Rather than being organized by style of lodging, each chapter offers a unique way to vacation, like the boutique farmstays in "Cultivate" or the wellness retreats in “Rejuvenate.” More than a collection of gorgeous accommodations, these are the transformative experiences that make glamping the ultimate style of travel.
