Pricing your glamping nights might sound challenging, but it does not have to be! Keep in mind that a glamping night is not just accommodation, it’s an experience - and your customers, the NEO’s, are willing to pay for that! How much a glamping experience will eventually cost, will depend on the following factors:What kind of seller are you? How private is your location? What are the special touches of your location?

By starting a glamping business ourselves several years ago, we have learned (through trial and error) almost all there is to know about building this kind of organization from the ground up. The joys but also the stresses around starting a business are actually something we still deal with on a daily basis. Besides learning by doing, we have also received help & feedback from other glamping specialists, which we thankfully applied to our knowledge each year in order to design better and more durable products. We have a great passion for glamping and the industry as a whole, and [...]

For the windows, I wanted to make army green canvas covers and I started searching on the internet for a wholesaler in canvas. That’s how I found a wholesaler in Nijkerk and I called him if he had the canvas on stock that I was searching for. He told me he imported the Canvas from a friend in Pakistan, and that he would come over that day. At the time I was reading a book called “Tennis in Kabul” and I was always interested [...]
