Experience luxury camping experiences in exciting destinations such as Thailand, Dubai, Bolivia, Colombia, Chile, or the Galapagos.
Thailand: Kanchanaburi Tented Camp
Lush national parks and ancient shrines are two reasons to visit Kanchanaburi Province, on the River Kwai, in western Thailand. Visit sites paying tribute to the 100,000-plus Allied POWs and Asian forced laborers who perished building Japan’s “Death Railway” (Thailand-Burma Railway) for Japan during World War II.
Located in the jungle on a cliff overlooking the Kwai River near Saiyok National Park, Hintok River Camp at Hellfire Pass features deluxe canvas tents, in-room air-conditioning, private bathrooms, and private verandas. Explore using provided mountain bikes, enjoy a Thai massage and watch traditional dance performances by the native Mon people.
This glamping experience can be easily added to Avanti’s Thailand Discovery recommended vacation. Available 365 days a year.
Chile: Luxury Yurts Outside Torres del Paine National Park
Just outside the spectacular Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia Camp is an all-inclusive property, consisting of secluded luxury yurts, connected by raised pathways designed to avoid damaging any trees or the fragile environment and yet able to withstand the region’s strong winter winds.
The yurts have private bathrooms with hot water, and gourmet meals are served with locally-produced wine. Expert wilderness guides leading daily excursions are included.
Colombia: Domes or Tents in Suesca and Guatavita
A short drive from Bogota, enjoy a stay in either a translucent dome at beautiful Guatavita Lake, a crater-like sacred site in the pre-Columbian Chibcha culture, or in a luxury tent near Suesca, surrounded by rock formations, canyons and woods.
A driver and guide are included in both locations. Suesca is a mecca for rock-climbing, trekking and rafting. At Guatavita, once considered the site of the legendary El Dorado, a guided tour of the area around the 50-acre lake is included.
Available 365 days a year.
Bolivia: Uyuni Salt Flats in a Deluxe Airstream Trailer
Surrounded by nothing but surreal salt flats and the Milky Way, clients stay in a luxury Airstream trailer. Enjoy chef-prepared meals under the stars, private tours of the salt flats. Package includes all meals and two nights and flights between La Paz and Uyuni.
Available 365 days a year.
Dubai: Arabian Dreams overnight at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve
