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.
Resort at Paws Up, Greenough Montana
There are few regions on earth that can rival Montana's magnificence. What Paws Up offers is access to the spectacular outdoors. A working cattle ranch on a 37,000 acre plot that is bisected by the the Blackfoot river, the camp is part wilderness retreat and part high-end safari camp. Guests choose from a range of 30 tricked out tents spread among a handful of small campsites, each equipped with electricity, en suite bathrooms, wood flooring, climate control, full-service housekeeping, and a butler. Three gourmet meals are prepared each day by a chef and, yes, there is Wi-Fi.
Still, the main draw isn't the amenities. Paws Up provides every opportunity to engage and explore the resort's grounds or nearby 1.5 million-acre Bob Marshall Wilderness, be it via foot, ATV, bike, horseback, kayak, raft, or rappel line. And then there's the fishing: The Blackfoot was made famous as the star of A River Runs Through It and is ground zero of big trout fly-fishing. Cast a line and take a deep breath.
