Unreal Glamping in Canada – You Can’t Miss These Wild & Unique Stays

Oh Canada, you really do have some magical landscapes and jaw-dropping scenery. They say to walk in nature it to witness a thousand miracles, and I can see that in every corner of this beautiful country. That must be why every summer Canucks are drawn into the outdoors to spend some major one-on-one time with mother nature.

But if you’re like me, and pitching a tent might not quite be swank enough, glamping in Canada is definitely the answer. You know, staying in things like yurts, treehouses and panoramic domes. It’s like millennial camping 2.0!

To celebrate my up-coming return to Canada this summer, I’ve researched all the BEST glamping spots and unique accommodations you just HAVE to stay in this summer!

Grab your camping buddy…

British Columbia

Get your ZEN on by staying in this delightful ‘Inipi’ style hut located just 1 hour from Kelowna, BC.

Located in Armstrong, BC you will feel surrounded by nature, gardens, and chirping birds from this adorable 1 bed/1 bath dome. It has a hot tub, an outdoor pizza oven for impromptu meals, and it’s located nearby an outdoor theatre with amazing live entertainment. (really, we saw a show last summer and it was so much fun!)
Starts at $120/n

Who doesn’t want to stay in a floating ball in the middle of the coastal rainforest on Vancouver Island!? The Free Spirit Spheres are most likely the most unique accommodations you’ll ever lay eyes on. Made from local cedar and spruce woods, these round rooms are cozy even in the cooler summer nights. Fall asleep with the natural sway of the trees and wake up to the sounds of nature happening all around you.
Starts at $300/n


Stay overnight in a piece of Canadian heritage in the Kananaskis back country. Just 45 minutes from Banff and Calgary you can stay in a Sioux canvas tipi at Sundance Lodges. Inside there is a wooden floor, kerosine lantern and wood frame beds. Outside you're surrounded by private trees, your own fire pit and picnic table. 
Starts at $69.50/n


Check out these jaw-dropping domes opening this spring on Buffalo Pound Lake. Just 1 hour from Regina, Glamping Resort is taking a weekend at the lake to a whole new level. They will be solar powered, off the grid, and filled with all the luxuries you'd expect from a posh resort. Did I mention beach access? I have a feeling these will sell out the minute they open!
Starting at $129/n


Glamping version of the tiny-house revolution, this itty-bitty accommodation is only about 100sq ft. It doesn't feel like it looking out of it's huge panoramic window into the surrounding forest. The MicrOcube is located in Riding Mountain National Park about 1.5 hours from Brandon, MB. Bring your sleeping bag and cooking gear and make a feast outside with friends from nearby campsites. 


Nothing says ‘high maintenance glamping' like renting out your own private island! Only an hour away from Kenora, ON is the incredible Red Pine Island is available for you and 5 of your friends. The house is all hooked up to creature comforts, yet it's still boat access only. The best of both worlds!
Starting at $500/n

Get out of Toronto and go somewhere that's not Muskoka. Still placed on old abandon train tracks sits this renovated train caboose ready for you to spend the night in. It still retains its charm, but has modern amenities like a bathroom and even WiFi.(Fun fact, I lived in Creemore for a few years when I was young!)
Starts at $180/n


This whimsical treehouse just an hour outside of Ottawa looks like something straight out of a child's imagination. The treehouse is 2 stories high, sleeps 4 and even has a rooftop balcony. The perfect spot to forget about the pressures of life for a weekend.
Starts at $120/n

Another storybook charmer can be found deep in the wilderness of Quebec's back country. Appropriately nicknamed the Hobbit Hole, this adorable little eco-cottage is sure to make a memorable glamping experience. It's green too with it's solar panel electricity and composting toilet.
Starts at $180/n

New Brunswick

Possibly the smallest accommodation on this list, but certainly one of the cutest! Eventually the Fundy Park will hang The Oasis up in the trees so it mimics a water droplet at the end of a branch. For now, it sits on the ground and has become super popular for glampers. Inside is a sofa bed, screened windows and cozy atmosphere. 

Nova Scotia

These fair-trade and handcrafted Mongolian yurts are a great way to reconnect with nature. Located on Cape Breton Island the yurts at Cabot Shores offer one of a kind accommodation. Some have cedar Japanese soaking tubs and a view of the water. 
Starting at $155/n


Bring nature inside with these ultra-trendy bubble accommodations called TreePods. Only half an hour away from Charlottetown, you and 5 of your friends can rent a fun pod for weekend getaways. Couples can also make it a romantic trip by staying in one with an adjoining private hot tub. Not only are the views incredible, but the interiors are so sweetly decorated as well.


Imagine staying in this incredibly charming restored lighthouse on your next getaway. Take in the beautiful views from the top of the lighthouse, a serene place to enjoy a morning coffee. 
Starts at $90/n

Northwest Territories 

The ultimate guys-trip cabin. This floating accommodation can sleep 8 and has enough canoes to get everyone back and forth to land easily. Close enough to Yellowknife to make it easy to find, but far enough away to escape into nature.
Starts at $180/n

I hope this gives you some  glamping and unique accommodation ideas to get you out into the Canadian wilderness this summer!
