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.
Though billed as a five-star summer camp for adults and families, Whitepod is by no means traditional. Surrounding a converted chalet (dubbed the pod-house) that serves as a lodge are 15 435-square-foot geodesic pod tents, each on its own wooden platform. Inside each former is a king-size bed, a fully-equipped bathroom, and a wood stove. The best part? The views are breathtakingly awesome. Activities run the gamut from hiking and biking to paragliding and dog karting, and there is access to both a wellness center and full-service spa in the Pod-house. You know, like summer camp.
