This comfortable, yet rustic, glamping vacation rental is located in Walhachin, Thompson River Estates, British Columbia, Canada. The cozy, riverfront tented cabin is perfect for two to six guests who are ready to enjoy the best of nature while staying in a unique glamping accommodation on the Thompson River. The location of this unit is in the shade, directly on the river which, in the desert is a rare treat. Guests can wake up in the morning to some cowboy coffee and cast out their fishing pole to catch a rainbow trout right in front of their accommodation.

This accommodation is fitted with a queen-size elevated inflatable mattress and solar-powered lamps to illuminate the tent when the sun goes down. The tent also features a covered wooden front porch with two Muskoka chairs overlooking the little sandy beach and the rushing river.

Guests who stay at this accommodation have direct access to potable water directly outside of the tent. Linens, towels, and cooking equipment and utensils are not provided, so guests have the option of bringing their own or renting from the host for the duration of their stay. Shared bathroom facilities are located just steps away from the tent.

There is a shared fire pit on the property, so guests can light a fire and roast marshmallows under the light of the desert moon.

Glampers should note that upon arrival, a security deposit must be paid. This is refunded upon departure after the cabin is checked. Bedding and propane are available for an additional charge.

British Columbia, Canada, is known globally for its amazing landscapes, endless coasts, and precious wildlife. Just four hours inland, glampers can find a special, almost untouched region near the sparsely populated town of Walhachin, where visitors come to get away from it all and experience nature at its very best. The surrounding region boasts lakes, rivers, forests, and mountain peaks that allow for endless opportunities for outdoor adventures.

The property itself lies on the Thompson River and is just minutes west of Kamloops Lakes, so its a great location for water sports enthusiasts. The river bank is great for sunbathing, wading, swimming, fishing, and having a picnic, while more adventurous glampers can kayak, canoe, or even go rafting. The larger Kamloops Lake is great for more extensive fishing and boating.

The terrain immediately accessible from the property is hilly and rocky, with scattered forests, so it is terrific for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. Bird watchers, photographers, and wildlife enthusiasts will never have a boring moment while roaming the areas around the river.

For those who are interested in visiting during the winter months, the surrounding ski resorts open their doors to downhill skiing and snowboarding, so glampers who love the snow will get a taste of a true British Columbia winter.
