Yurts have become popular spots for glamping breaks, but one tent has just majorly upped the stakes.
Forget campsites and fields – this accommodation comes with its very own private island!
The aptly named Private Island Yurt can only be accessed by boat or kayak, and it offers up a stay that’s sure to be a hit with any intrepid explorer.
For a start, the tent itself has everything you need for a comfortable stay, not to mention the domed ceiling has clear panels so you can stargaze without having to leave your bed.
In the daytime, you can grab some kayaks and head over to explore the surrounding area, which is also home to a bustling seal colony! (The kayak tour is done with Pleasant Paddling and may include other travellers).
The private island itself is right off the coast of the breathtaking Blue Rocks fishing village near Lunenburg, in Canada’s Nova Scotia province – and as part of the stay, you’ll get to explore the region after kayaking.
Highlights include a bike tour and a chance to explore the region, or you can grab one of the snorkel sets and discover the marine life. (For those feeling peckish, there’s a Lobster roll picnic lunch for two on offer).
As dusk approaches, it’s time to head back to your private island to soak up the peace and quiet and take in some pretty breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery.
Feeling peckish? The experience includes a dinner consisting of local delicacies that are easy to prepare including locally-sourced mussels and charcuterie board from The Point General.
At the time of writing the FCDO doesn’t advise against travel to Canada, but the country has its own entry requirements which don’t include tourists (you can find out more in the FCDO’s Canada advice ).
However, due to the pandemic the yurt stay isn’t available in 2020 anyway, but is re-opening for stays from June to September 2021.
Prices for the stay and experiences will start from approx £560 a night based on two people staying. There are one-person stays available from approximately £353 a night.
