Seriously, this is glamping?

Date: October 11, 2019 | By: Deborah Kilcollins | Category: Travel Blog

Columbia Glamping Tour

Tell people you are going glamping and they may tilt their head in a kind of question mark or tell you to watch out for snakes. They haven’t a clue!

You can be sure that these folks have never been glamping in Colombia!

The camp is just a short distance from the main part of Guatapé, a small town in the northwest of Colombia about an hour’s drive east of Medellín. The town boasts colorful houses, a variety of water sports and panoramic views that will knock your socks off. This classic romantic glamping experience is hidden within the forest

They call it Bosko Hotel, but don’t let that fool you. You stay in a spacious, transparent dome, half of which seems open to the world with stunning panoramic views of the lake and its surroundings from your bed. Each domed pod is called a mushroom and it owns its individual space in the forest, allowing you a very private and intimate encounter with the landscape.

The mushroom sports a luxurious interior including a king-sized bed, rustic-style decor, mini bar, bathroom and open delightful and energizing outdoor air shower. Each also has its own terrace overlooking the lake and the valley surrounding it. Now this is a tent, er, excuse me… a mushroom!

Rise early and settle on your terrace with a cup of coffee and fresh breakfast served as you watch the sun come up. Savor every second of the sun rising over the mountains before you venture out to go hiking and exploring native species of flora and fauna, or fishing from the floating dock, or kayaking and paddle boarding on the private lake. Optional activities include spa treatments, speed boat tours, helicopter flights, rock climbing and wake boarding.

Then it’s time to relax by the bonfire and toast marshmallows. The firewood creaks in the flames as you sip a fine wine. Retire to your private terrace to take in the delicate colors of the cosmos and listen to the gentle voices of the night.

Can there be a better day than this?
