Camping has enjoyed particular popularity for many years now. In the past, camping was primarily associated with our dearest neighbours, the Germans and their Dutch counterparts, as they travelled with bags and baggage to every holiday destination, no matter how far away, in their ageing caravans, but today most of us think of a rather instagrammable van. Influencers are tinkering with old buses that, after installing wooden panels, LEDs and gas cooker tops, are the equivalent of a perfect Tiny House. This trend shows us one thing above all: Holidays with maximum flexibility and the feeling of unrestricted freedom are in high demand. Being able to decide individually when and where to pitch their tents (literally) is preferred by many travellers to staying in hotels. One could almost think that all-inclusive holidays are so yesterday’s news if it weren’t for a ‘small’ detail on the side that should not go unmentioned in the Millenials’ favourite travel trend: Comfort is key! Yes, the longing for freedom and the privacy of one’s own four walls on holiday is strong, but please not without the luxury of a soft bed, a warm shower or the gentle breeze of air conditioning and – most importantly – never without WiFi. We understand these wishes and can recommend the fabulous concept of glamping to all those who find themselves in these demands! By now, almost everyone has heard that camping doesn’t have to be uncomfortable, or require a bulk purchase and meticulous meal planning in advance – after all, not everything can be stored, let alone prepared, in the tent or the mini-fridge in the caravan. But if you opt for the premium version of your camping holiday, many of the struggles that were previously considered a turn-off of the trip into the wilderness, a fun killer of the road trip, become obsolete. Glamping is the welcome update that has opened up a whole new target group. And we are definitely here for it!
Falkensteiner also relied on this concept a few years ago. With the Premium Camping area in Zadar, Croatia, a true glamping oasis has been created that really plays all the pieces. Located directly by the sea, holidaymakers can choose their own level of comfort and adventure: From pitches to top-equipped tipis that extend over two floors (incl. kitchenette and bathroom) to mobile homes with several bedrooms and all the amenities of a hotel room, guests can expect a relaxed temporary home & a cosy retreat inspired by the casual charm of bohemian style. Up to seven people can stay in the accommodation, which is somewhat reminiscent of an upscale safari in Zadar’s national parks. The beautiful pool landscape, a wellness area to feel good and relax, spa treatments, fitness and outdoor sports facilities – here, guests decide how much luxury they want to indulge in amidst the wonderful nature. Fragrant pine trees line the paths to the premium ‘tents’ and create a very special connection to the Mediterranean surroundings. And the very best thing about the location? Zadar’s famous sunsets are spent with an iced sundowner on the stylish terrace of the Á la carte restaurant. From an extensive breakfast to dinner with truffle pasta, pizza and other really delicious dishes (tried by us ourselves and heartily approved!) – you also get your money’s worth in culinary terms at the Falkensteiner Premium Camping Zadar. Tip: Only a few minutes drive (also by bike) from the Falkensteiner Premium Camping site, a place with a special flair awaits holidaymakers. Cobbled alleys, inviting squares and promenades and a multitude of cafés, restaurants and shops invite you to linger in the old town of Zadar. Just let yourself drift and enjoy the atmosphere, which creates an exciting interplay of urban
