Yurt glamping is the best way to experience the rustic beauty of the Washington.

That’s because yurts combine the luxuries of upscale hotels with the #optoutside lifestyle. In a well-appointed yurt, you can stay warm and cozy while witnessing first-hand the tumultuous weather and elusive wildlife of the region.

It’s like tent camping, only your tent is a Bohemian-inspired permanent yurt, and instead of freezing on the ground, you’re toasty warm next to a wood-burning stove. Lying in bed in a yurt while heavy rains pelt the exterior canvas and a crackling fire supplies heat — that’s an experience worth seeking.
