Norway is a perfect destination for glamping. From beautiful fjords and majestic mountains to lush national parks, the country offers a unique blend of tranquillity and adventure. One of the most exciting forms of glamping that has grown in popularity is 'dome glamping'. These hemispherical domes provide a unique and luxurious way to experience Norway's pristine landscape.

What is dome glamping?

Dome Glamping combines the best of camping and luxury, offering a unique opportunity to experience nature without sacrificing comfort. These domes, often made of durable and transparent material, allow you to enjoy panoramic views of your surroundings, whether it's a fjord, mountain range, or the Northern Lights.

One of the main benefits of dome glamping is the ability to be close to nature while still having the comfort of a luxury hotel. You can wake up to the sound of birdsong, enjoy delicious meals, and then retire to a comfortable bed at night. Plus, many of these domains are equipped with modern amenities you're used to having available.
