Glamping is in itself nothing new. The concept of luxurious and glamorous camping has existed for centuries. But it is only in the last decade that it has become more common and more in. Enjoying the combination of glamour and excellent facilities with the closeness to nature are of course enticing. The best of everything!
Glamping is not unknown either in Sweden or Skåne. My parents reminded me of glamping in an unrelated discussion and I just had to write a post about it.
On the east coast, just outside Kivik, you will find Bästekille Glamping. It is small glamping with just two domes. In each you will find a king-size bed, and you can fit an extra bed too. You have your own toilet just around the back. As part of the packet you’ll get breakfast-in-a-basket each morning. Located close to Kivik and the east coast it is perfectly located if you want to explore Österlen. Here you will find beautiful beaches, fabulous landscape and lots of artist all around the area.
On the other side of Skåne, on the island Ven located in the middle of the strait between Sweden and Denmark you will find Camp Ven. This glamping site is larger and has several tents of three different sizes. Breakfast is of course included. To book the tents you will probably have to contact the site directly, or you can book one of their cottages instead. Ven is a beautiful island, perfect for easy hiking or cycling. Ven is known for their tandem bicycles, and you really should try them out! You should also visit the Tyco Brahe-museum, one of the most known Scandinavian scientists. And if you like whiskey you will in the middle of the island find a distillery, Spirit of Hven, where you can have some tastings.
Grand Circus Hotel
In Malmö, not that far from central station you will find Grand Circus Hotel. A perfect place if you want that different experience. This is not as close to nature, but who wouldn’t want to live in a circus wagon? They have 12 circus wagons, all unique, most with its own kitchenette and toilette for that nicer experience. As an extra perk all wagons come with two bikes included in the price, perfect for exploring Malmö and the area around the city.
