Glamping is the ultimate blend of outdoor living and comfort, combining the adventure of camping with luxurious accommodations. This concept has a rich history worldwide and a fascinating evolution right here in Saskatchewan!
Join us on a trip down memory lane to explore the history and evolution of glamping in Saskatchewan, witnessing how traditional camping has transformed into today’s luxurious glamping escapades.
A Brief History of Glamping
The concept of glamping has roots in various cultures and historical periods. A long tradition of glamorous camping experiences existed in Europe, notably in France and the UK, where individuals camped in elaborate tents for a refined camping experience. The term ‘glamping’ gained popularity more recently as businesses started offering upscale camping experiences, such as Glamping Resorts in Saskatchewan.
The Emergence of Glamping in Saskatchewan
Glamping’s popularity has grown significantly over time in Canada, and provinces with abundant natural beauty, like Saskatchewan, have seen a distinct increase in glamping options. As the home of the prairies, Saskatchewan provides an ideal scenic backdrop for those seeking unique glamping getaways.
Saskatchewan’s diverse landscapes, including the boreal forest, grasslands, and lakes, set the perfect stage for glamping experiences. The province is also known for its varying climate, offering superb summer and winter glamping adventures with temperatures ranging from -30 degrees Celsius to 30 degrees Celsius.
Saskatchewan is also home to a rich indigenous history and culture. Glampers can immerse themselves in parts of this history at Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park, home to Lake Diefenbaker, the historical site of the first Métis crossing of the Saskatchewan River.
Saskatchewan Glamping Over Time
Glamping has evolved considerably since its first emergence in Saskatchewan. From types of accommodations to technology and the embrace of sustainable glamping practices, here are some ways glamping has grown over the years:
Diverse Types of Accommodations
Integration with Saskatchewan’s Natural Settings
Glamping Resorts strives to provide a seamless connection with the province’s natural environments. This is evident in both our Buffalo Pound Lake and Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park resorts, offering a variety of Saskatchewan landscapes and environments for glampers to experience the full extent of the province’s natural beauty.
Sustainable Glamping Practices
With an increasing emphasis on sustainability in the travel industry, glamping is no exception. Glamping Resorts has always prioritized environmental sustainability, with examples including installing electric lines by directional drilling instead of trench digging, causing significantly less damage to the environment.

As such, glamping has embraced certain aspects of modern technology, such as online booking and reservations. Technology has streamlined the booking process for Glamping Resorts, and our website is the perfect place to book your next glamping getaway.
