If you’re looking for the ultimate camping experience but aren’t into the whole outdoorsy vibe, the solution to your problem is glamping. Imagine getting to enjoy all the perks like campfires, s’mores, starry night skies and more while also avoiding all the negatives like gross washrooms, sleeping on the ground, and worrying about your stuff getting soaked if it rains.
That’s the best thing about glamping – you can still connect with nature but you don’t have to be miserable while doing it. There are a variety of different options from tipis, pods, yurts and more to choose. Thankfully, there is an abundance of Glamping spots in Ontario but we narrowed it down to our top 8 favourite spots:
1 .OutPost Co
It rests on a hidden lake 90 minutes as the seaplane flies north of Toronto. Let out your inner pioneer, as there is no WiFi or no electricity, and immerse yourself in 360 degrees of nature.
Price: $160+ (per night)
Location: Temagami, Ontario
2. Fronterra Farms
Their large canvas tents are an authentic tribute to the early prospecting days of our nation and are still used to explore some of Canada’s most wild places. A few modern luxuries were added including a king-sized bed, hardwood floors, an ensuite bathroom, a reading lounge and even a private outdoor hot shower.

3. The Buffalo Farm
The Buffalo Farm is an eco-tourism destination located on 600 gorgeous acres hugging the northern edge of Algonquin Park. It’s the perfect escape from the city, free from electricity and surrounded by nature.

Everything in the yurt is handmade, including the flooring (milled by a neighbour) and sofa (built from reclaimed barn beams).
