9 Of The World's Most Stunning Camping Spots

Think camping is pitching a tent in the woods and hoping the raccoons don't find you? Think again. From treehouses to cliff-side shelters, here are nine camping sites.

Camping. The word either makes you excited or causes you to cringe and then feel thankful for roofs and bathtubs.

But camping is no longer just about pitching a tent (or at least struggling to) and hoping that a wild animal doesn't break into your snack stash.

Well, it can be, but there are also new campsites redefining what it means to enjoy the great outdoors. From domes under the northern lights to tents hanging off the side of a cliff, here are some of the world's most awe-inspiring campsites.

1. Germany

Playa Viva is a yoga and wellness eco-resort in Mexico. Relax and de-stress even when you're not doing yoga — the tree house lodging opens onto the beach. 

3. Finland

With its swirling blue and green lights, the aurora borealis are an obvious entry on many people's bucket lists. The best way to see them may just be from these glass-domed igloos at the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort.

4. Spain

Check out the view from the tree houses at Las Cabanas del Pais Vasco in northern Spain, or Basque Country. The winding staircase takes you up over 55 feet. 

5. Italy

Who needs a roof when you have an untouched Italian landscape to look at? Kick your feet up in this canvas yurt and sip on a glass of Italian wine, obviously.

Hover just above the vines that line this Mendoza, Argentina, vineyard in a stilted pod. Did we mention that the bathtub on the deck has a perfect view of the Andes?
