Getting away from it all doesn't have to mean foregoing the perks of civilization. An increasing number of luxury camp sites, which combine the joy of not working remotely with the comfort of, well, comfort, allow travelers to have their cake and eat it on a porch with a view. Want to enjoy nature and hot water? Not a problem. The world's best camps have electricity, feather beds, butler service, wine cellars, and a lot of acreage. Here's a look at some of the finest luxury camping experiences available across the globe.
Dunton River Camp, Colorado
Dunton is best described as Rocky Mountain high-end. The camp hosts visitors in one of eight canvas tents, complete with king-size beds, gas stoves, private bathroom facilities, and full-size soaking tubs. The lodge, a converted farmhouse, hosts the dining and the drinking and has a lovely wraparound porch for taking in the spectacular view. There is no shortage of diversions of course, from trail riding on horseback or fly fishing the nearby Dolores river, to biking, hiking, rafting, and climbing, including expeditions up the 14,000-foot tall peaks that surround and stun you no matter how often or long you take them in.
