Fancy a weekend getaway in the wilderness? Check out our list of glamping spots you have to visit at least once! 

Camping isn't for everyone, but glamping? Where do we sign up?! Glam camping, or glamping, is a hugely popular alternative to hotels or camping trips because you can immerse yourself into nature, but do it with all the creature comforts of a hotel stay. It's a win-win in our books! And because Auckland isn't short on gorgeous nature spots, we've got some pretty epic glamping getaways across the region, here are just a few.
