About Adventure Basecamps

Typically revolving around a theme or outdoor activity, adventure basecamps are about getting more folks outdoors to challenge, explore and reconnect with an authentic Nature experience. Dome tents are ported in by camp hosts and serve as freestanding basecamps where one can still respect covid social-distancing guidelines (an oxymoron because humans are by nature social creatures and social implies community).

By popular demand, adventure camps have been getting a ‘chic’ makeover that offers an alternative to camping. Oftentimes, scattered in remote or semi-remote locations and surrounded by spectacular views, this modern trend has been dubbed, glamping (glamorous camping) ‒ where stunning Nature meets pampered camping.

Basecamp hosts do all the hard work, so you can just kick back, relax and enjoy a hearty meal upon returning from your day’s adventure ‒ then, you’re free to retire and enjoy some creature comforts in the privacy of your own ‘chic’ dome tent.

5 Reasons to Love Dome Glamping

Ecotourism travel to exotic remote destinations can be the adventure of a lifetime or can quickly turn into your worst nightmare. Dome glamping basecamps are fast becoming a way to enjoy a uniquely organic and safe get-away holiday, while enjoying simple creature comforts with resort-style amenities.

Here’s why:

  • When you’re in the wilderness hub of a Nature preserve, dome basecamps afford you peace of mind while you’re off on your favorite adventure or doing whatever else tickles your fancy.
  • Due to their superior geodesic-engineering, dome shelters keep you safe from the elements and nature’s extremes, such as tropical rains, heavy snows or high winds.

Dome Air Flow

  • Enhanced by unobstructed ambient air and energy flow, energy-efficient ecoliving domes stay comfortable in most climates. Dome shelters can, further, be insulated against heat or cold in areas where climates are less than temperate.
  • Nothing compares with the warmth of natural lighting unrivaled by artificial lighting. The ambiance of Zen-like dome lodging evokes a closeness with nature that’s hard to beat, by even, the world’s classiest resorts.
  • Last, but not least, eco-hospitality lodging is a source of revenue for rural communities who rely on tourism to boost their local economies. You’ll find that your hosts are happy to satisfy your whims to make your stay the most memorable vacation ever!
