You Can Go Glamping In These Crystal-Like “Geodomes” In Canada
Camping during winter in Canada? That sounds like something for extreme survivalists and thrill seekers. But actually, wintertime camping in the Canadian wilderness can actually be quite glamorous if you stay in one of Glamp Good’s “geodomes” in Alberta.
There are currently two geodomes to book stays in — The Aspen, which sleeps four, and The Tamarack, which sleeps two. Both domes, which look more like crystal formations or igloos, are pet-friendly and located completely off-grid in Wetaskiwin County about an hour away from Edmonton and two hours away from Calgary. Restaurants and shops are about a 20 minute drive.
But once you get to your geodome, there’s really no reason you’d want to leave. They both come with indoor fireplaces and propane, outdoor camping stoves, battery powered lights, comfy spots to hang out and sleep, and access to a composting outhouse. There’s even an outdoor fire pit you can gather around before hunkering down for a long winter’s nap.
The geodomes were custom designed for the property by owners Mandy and Simon Gommerud and were built in the spring of 2021. And even though they’re fresh to the glamping market, the Glamp Good geodomes have already made quite the splash.
Glamp Good is now booking stays from April through October 2022 if you’d like to try camping the glamorous way in the New Year.
