Get a glimpse inside the breathtaking campground, home to our August FP Escapes retreat…
Where peaks touch sky, glaciers move earth, waterfalls carve rock, and wildlife roam free… Welcome to Under Canvas Glacier, and home to our August FP Escapes retreat. Under Canvas Glacier takes camping to a whole new level, with luxury tents and endless mountain views giving you the opportunity to camp without ditching the comforts of home. Still not convinced to join us this August? Read below our conversation with Crystal McDonald from the Under Canvas team to help make the trip to Montana that much more desirable.
We love your mission statement, “To enrich lives by enabling people to share experiences in the outdoors in comfort and style.” Could you tell us a little more on how Under Canvas continues bring this mission to life.
Being outdoors definitely inspires, restores and connects people! Adventuring in the wild doesn’t come easy for everyone, but experiencing the outdoors also doesn’t have to mean “roughing it.” We provide unforgettable experiences and believe that immersing yourself in nature strengthens relationships and fosters environmental consciousness. Not to mention it allows you to decompress from the daily demands of being so connected!
Can you share with us some of the things that Under Canvas Glacier guests would be privy to: tours/activities/etc.?
We offer many fun activities that our guests can enjoy, like whitewater rafting and canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, horseback riding, guided backcountry tours to Glacier Lake, even cowboy cookouts. Did I also mention Llama Trekking? How cool is that!? The park is nearly one million acres in size, so the list is virtually endless. You might even spot some cute bear cubs!
Under Canvas has a few other locations. Where are they located?
It’s so hard to pick a favorite because they’re all so fabulous! Next month we are opening Under Canvas Zion, and our team has some really special things in the works! I hear there’s going to be an amazing lobby tent with a fire pit and trees inside, a campfire-inspired restaurant AND a huge yoga platform with a meditation area! Each location is totally unique and incredible in its own way — but you guys already know that because you’ve visited our camps in Yellowstone and Moab! Here’s some other exciting news too — we have more new locations rolling out in 2018, including Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
5 words that capture the essence of Under Canvas Glacier?
Adventure, relax, escape, inspire, discover.
Giving back is a huge part of who Under Canvas is. The months of May & June are blocked off specifically for hosting charitable camps. Could you tell us more about this?
Yes, giving back is at the core of who we are! We love sharing the gift of nature and we support organizations who work in partnership to offer that experience to children, youth and the disadvantaged. Before our Glacier location opens each season, we host charitable camps and help provide the ultimate experience in the great outdoors — and when it comes to sleeping in a safari tent there is never a lack of excitement (or late-night laughter)!
Our mission to bridge society to the great outdoors is a priority. Organizations can always contact us for more information!
If Under Canvas Glacier had (or has) a spirit animal, what would it be?
A bear! They are wild and powerful creatures, yet beautiful and graceful. And nothing says adventure like a bear!
What does the word free mean to you?
Not having a care in the world. But more importantly, being confident and truly comfortable with yourself!
