In the first century, in an 'accelerated' society, where the average life expectancy is gradually increasing day by day, and the tourist offer is highly competitive, tourists become more informed and demanding, forcing the market to respond to this same requirement. This degree of demand has led to the emergence of new tourism concepts, correctly related to a new tourist profile, with different needs.
New concepts of luxury tourism emerge, with a significantly relevant investment in the approach; luxury, previously associated, among other aspects, with the sumptuousness and refinement of a given space/building, began to focus on the actual experience of the guest, not on their comfort and well-being, but on the enjoyment of a quality time (stay).
It is within this dynamic that, a new tourism concept/experience emerged in the UK in 2005 - Glamping, revolutionising the notion of camping that has been in place, under the vision; Sleep in nature in comfort and wellbeing.
The name, Glamping, was born from the combination of the English words, 'glamping' and 'camping', in order to emphasise a new tourism product.
Camping, a descendant of the military camps of antiquity, as a leisure practice related to nature, in which man takes his own shelter, to suppress the most elementary need of the human being, protection, spread in Europe after the First World War, due to the influence of the Scout movement.
Camping arose in response to the need of the inhabitants of industrialised urban centres, who, before the day before, enjoyed another space/environment, outside their usual place of residence, for leisure purposes in contact with nature.
