This cool spot in the Masuria region of Poland packs in plenty of Eastern European charm. About a three-hour drive from Warsaw in the country’s north-east, the ‘funky village for urban people’ – as it is described by its owners – is tucked in between a pine forest and a lake.
An old barn with a fireplace, library, cinema and bar forms the social heart of the camp, but each shelter is well equipped with a wood fire, fridge, wi-fi, bathroom and hammock strung up on the veranda.
Campers can gather provisions from the town a kilometre away, but for a more luxurious approach opt for full board and start the day with ostrich egg scramble followed by Polish and Mediterranean cuisine – think cured meats, grilled vegetables and ukha, a traditional soup made with fish caught from the nearby lake, washed down with a bottle of Zywiec, the local lager. Na zdrowie!
During the day go scuba diving, splash around the lake on kayaks or cool off in the swimming pool. Back on shore there’s beach volleyball and badminton, as well as trekking and bike riding. Once you’re done exploring, relax with a range of spa treatments.
Glendoria is about a three-hour drive from Warsaw.
Prices start at around US$65 per night for two people in a tented room during low season.
The campsite is only open during the warmer months, between May and September.
