Glamping Ontario

5 Reasons Why 2019 is the Year to go Glamping

There’s a reason why glamping continues to be ranked amongst the most popular and fastest growing trends in the travel industry. This summer, experience glamping for yourself and see what all the hype is about. Located just 1 hour from the Greater Toronto Area, Whispering Springs is one of Ontario’s premiere glamping destinations. Here are our top 5 reasons why 2019 is the year you need to go glamping:

Forest Bathing

At Whispering Springs, we take forest bathing seriously, both literally and figuratively. Each one of our Safari Tents is outfitted with a luxe soaker tub, not to mention our stunning outdoor shower near the pavilion. After your bubble bath in the forest try the traditional Japanese method of forest bathing, also known as Shinrin-Yoku, a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments.

Unique Accommodations

Glamping has become known for its unique and one-of-a-kind accommodations. Our log-framed Safari Tents are inspired by the great prospector tents of Canada’s past and each one features unique furnishings and custom carpentry. This year we are also introducing our new boho-inspired Bell Tents, which are artfully situated throughout the property and are decorated with charming furniture and accent pieces.

Digital Detox

Can you remember the last time you went a full day without checking your emails, scrolling through Instagram or responding to text messages? Wifi is weak in our little corner of the countryside, and we think that is a good thing. When you arrive at the springs we suggest turning off your phone so you have more time to take in the beauty of nature and the stunning scenery that surrounds you.

No Set-Up

Contrary to camping, one of the best things about glamping is that all the hard work is done prior to arriving (and by hard work we mean packing and booking your tent). You don’t have to worry about setting up your tent, unrolling your sleeping bag or even getting firewood. When you arrive at the springs your tent will be waiting, your bed will be made (with luxe linens) and your firewood is stocked. We suggest you use the time you saved by going to The Watering Hole Guest Lounge & Bar for a cedar-smoked old-fashioned or s’mortini.

Romance in the Forest

Since our Grand Opening in 2017, Whispering Springs has had the honour and privilege of hosting countless love birds. From proposals and weddings, to mini-moons, honeymoons and baby-moons, to special birthdays and anniversaries, we feel honoured that so many people have chosen Whispering Springs as the place to celebrate their love.

Ready to go glamping?! We will be opening our tent flaps for our second season on June 2, 2019. We suggest booking a tent soon as our remaining weekends are nearly sold out and midweek is filling up quickly.  Choose your tent and book today!
