Amangiri, Utah

Camping in the dramatic desert landscapes of the Colorado Plateau, surrounded by tangerine-hued, spire-like rock formations is set to be a memory your family will cherish for years to come. With just ten canvas-topped pavilions that come with private plunge pools, this is camping Aman-style, and the isolated Camp Sarika is only five minutes from minimalist desert design hotel Amangiri.

Despite its wilderness setting the two-bedroom tents are furnished to a luxe standard and are incredibly spacious, with both living and dining rooms plus two bathrooms and a freestanding tub. The real luxury is of course access to untamed nature from dawn to dusk. Enjoy geological adventures in the rocky landscapes, hiking into canyons or mountain biking Old West trails. Discover the desert on horseback or clamber across rocks and canyons on a Via Ferrata experience. Aman guides can bring the region’s rich tradition of Native American culture to life and come evenings, the obligatory campfire singalong, star gazing and s’more roasting will close the day out beautifully.

“Camping but not as you know it, Aman’s Camp Sarika brings luxury to the isolated desert landscapes of Utah for a big family adventure.”

Combine With:

Camp Sarika is located in the Colorado Plateau, home to the highest concentration of national parks in the USA: from here take a road trip to explore the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon or Zion National Park or perhaps take a week to discover the glassy waters of Lake Powell on a private boat trip.

Montana, Blackfoot Valley

Enter a vast and unspoiled wilderness in the heart of Montana’s Blackfoot Valley where the opportunities for experiences in the great outdoors are endless. Paws Up is a working cattle ranch surrounded by Montana’s deep forests and expansive plains swirled by rivers and topped with a vast sky. We highly recommend Glamping at Paws Up for its top notch, yet relaxed vibe and families will love the sumptuous safari-style tents strung along the river’s edge.

With no age restrictions, Paws Up makes a fabulous multi-generational holiday with bespoke activities to cover the age spectrum from tiny tots to the older and wiser members of the clan. Gourmet meals and drinks are included, while activities are chosen a la carte allowing for a most extensive activity programme. Be immersed in traditional cowboy life, sleep in a (albeit luxurious) tent, herd cattle, fly fish and end your day by a crackling fire. The more adventurous may like to try rappelling, clay shooting, whitewater rafting and ATV riding. With plenty of fresh air, there is hearty, family-friendly food to match including American burgers and open-air chuck wagon cook-outs, plus a more refined offering at Pomp restaurant with its wonderful fine dining.

“A wild west camping adventure personalised to your family’s exact needs, experience an outdoor holiday on an authentic cattle ranch at Paws Up.”

Combine With:

Pair Montana with Wyoming and enjoy a road trip to Jackson Hole Four Seasons, and let the outdoor activities continue. Visit the Jackson Hole rodeo, spot grizzly bears and bison in Grand Teton National Park and take a thrilling raft along Snake River.

Acadia National Park, Maine

On the rocky Atlantic coastline of east America’s Maine, Acadia National Park is a millennia-old geological site and outdoor playground full of the promise of active fun. Characterised by granite mountains that intersperse with coniferous forests, miles of boulder-strewn beaches, glassy lakes and gushing rivers, it’s a coastal paradise for hikers, bikers and kayakers. Foodies are also attracted to Maine with good reason – get ready to enjoy its famous cuisine sourced from the sea: crab, lobster, oysters and clams are here in abundance.

You can uncover all this and more from the stylish set up at your glamp site, just half an hour from Acadia National Park, with a prime waterfront location clasped by pine trees. Your spacious and comfortable tent awaits with a plush king-size bed, private bathroom and a wood-burning stove. The al fresco kitchen is ready to offer you the catch of the day with a craft beer. During the day, get the most out of your natural environment enjoying guided tours of the park, sunset boat cruises, climbs up Cadillac Mountain and visits to the historic Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, built in 1858.

“Go outside and get active in Acadia's rugged landscapes and afterwards feast on bucketloads of freshly caught seafood before bedding down in a tent. Fun for all the family."

Make your glamping excursion just one part of a road trip around New England including Boston, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

The ultimate in wholesome family fun, glamping near Yellowstone National Park in Montana is a world of adventure. Huge landscapes surround you from endless plains, plunging waterfalls, winding rivers, geological wonders to mountain peaks. And at the end of every day, be at one with nature in the flower-filled meadow which you will call home, fishing the river, toasting s’mores on the fire and watching the sky prick with a million stars before turning into your cosy tent.

During the day, adventure calls in Yellowstone National Park – the west side entrance is just ten minutes away. Explore the park on guided hikes or traverse on horseback and discover the secrets of the 2.2-million-acre park, created from an eruption 631,000 years ago. Today geysers spurt, obsidian rises up in cliffs, colourful hot pools bubble and wolves, bison, elk, antelope and grizzly bear wander the volcanic land.

“Live in the great outdoors - by day explore Yellowstone's geological wonders, eat dinner by the fire and by night, sleep under canvas."

Combine With:

Head to a top-class luxury ranch in Montana and tap into cowboy traditions: gallop across the plains and learn how to herd cattle on horseback in ‘big sky country’ and bed down in a traditional wooden cabin.
