Our story

Welcome to Apex Glamping, where luxury meets nature. Our passion is to reconnect people with the natural world and foster a respect and passion for the most incredible spaces in the world without destroying the genius loci of that space.

We believe in long-term successful relationships with our clients and are excited about this new eco-tourism sector. As a team, we love pushing the envelope on design and exploring the future of low carbon living. Our design incorporates architecture that "touches the ground lightly" in an attempt to minimize our impact on a site to appreciate and preserve nature. We also love problem-solving and challenging the typical building process by manufacturing our pods off-site and providing landowners with alternative revenue streams.

We believe that there is a global conscious shift towards respectful experiential travel in unique locations around the world, and we want our pods to be a part of this movement.
