Glamping companies are continually striving to enhance comfort levels that align with the changing consumer requirements in the market. The inclusion of wellness treatments at campsites and custom-tailored retreats to an abundance of services will help boost revenues in the Europe glamping market.
Consumers are trying to detoxify from their digital frenzy and re-claim their time for personal growth, harmony, and wellbeing. The collective concept of vacations is evolving, furthered by intensifying chronic health problems, attributed in part to the growing disconnect from nature.

Hence, wellness tourism is a rapidly growing segment in both developed and developing countries.
Vendors in the market are thus always striving to enhance comfort levels, a development that has come from keeping up with changing consumer requirements. From custom-tailored retreats to an abundance of services, these outdoor hospitality vendors are offering wellness treatments at campsites. The Europe glamping market is re-defining itself, incorporating more luxurious energy that can create sustained growth for glamorous camping as it offers a greater number of opportunities to pack up and glamp.

Glamping Market in Europe: Segmentation
The market research report includes detailed segmentation by accommodation type, end-user, land ownership, area size, and geography. Cabins are witnessing an overall growth in glamping. They have been around for a long time and have been considered a novelty. However, they are the most common form of tents used for family camping. They are likely to be more advanced in terms of amenities since they can handle all types of back-end systems and components. Therefore, cabineering leans more toward luxury hotels than camping.
With disposable household incomes rising, family holidays in Europe are increasing, thereby increasing the demand for the 4-person tent segment. As sites grew and structures became more enduring and permanent, the market witnessed growing appeal in 2019. The market is characterized by creature comforts and a heavy dose of activities and amenities. Safari tents, treehouses, yurts, and pods are the most common forms of accommodation because they tend to be family-friendly and allow for more designated and open living spaces, elements of fun, and convenience. However, since recreational vehicles (RVs) offer mobility, flexibility, and an equally comfortable shelter, their high demand can hinder the growth of the four-person glamping tents during the forecast period.
The tourism market is increasingly marked by a trend to discover places, which are more difficult to access or are relatively unknown. Hence, rural-based glamorous camping experiences are expected to gain ground. Fueled by popular culture, travel bloggers, and Instagram influencers, rural glamping is becoming organized and formal. Farm stays are witnessing the second wave. Immersive glamping at cattle ranches, vineyards, and farms are increasing the popularity of the rural segment.
Baby boomers experience nature reserves, and they are better able to do so as they have additional resources and time on their hands, thereby expecting to rely on public lands. Since they are also glamping enthusiasts, it does not require them to carry gear, the demand for these accommodations is only going to grow in that age group.
Increasing digital exposure is limiting outdoor activities among children. This is pushing the idea of spending more time exploring nature, thereby driving demand for glamping. This is particularly high among avid millennial families that have young children that cannot take part in adventurous activities. Another primary driver is the growing demand for weekend getaways for stressed-out urban campers.
The impact of glamping has gone well beyond stays and entered into the realm of events. While camping has long been at the heart of the action at events, it has largely been restricted to music festivals. However, glamping has changed, providing ways to get the whole squad together at striking spots for a fancy-yet-rural experience. It is being used for both personal and professional events. With a promising share of these events being life milestones, the market is expected to grab the attention of several consumers and businesses.
