Do rural tourism in the north of Extremadura

Rural tourism is booming due to new concepts such as glamping. If you have never heard of this concept, don’t worry, we will explain it to you.

Glamping is a term that comes from putting together the words “camping” and “glamorous” and that was coined at the end of the 19th century. In essence, glamping is like a luxury campsite, that is, doing quality rural tourism and being able to enjoy a traditional campsite in the countryside, but without giving up all the advantages that a five-star hotel can provide.

Glamping is perfect for all those who like the countryside, but do not like the inconveniences that it has. This means that if you love nature and enjoy hiking, but don’t like to sleep in a tent or are worried about getting bugs, glamping is the best solution.

Glamping is a new way to enjoy a holiday in the countryside, with all the advantages that a place in a big city can offer you. To enjoy glamping, one of the most recommended places is the North of Extremadura for everything it offers.
