Sleeping in a real yurt

Are you looking for a nice accommodation for a short vacation or for a weekend away, but want something different than an ordinary cottage? Then consider spending the night in a yurt.

What is a yurt?

A yurt (or yurt) is a traditional round tent originally used for habitation by nomads, keeping sheep, goats, camels and/or horses, living in the cold dry areas of Central Asia. Nowadays, yurts are also used as accommodation for an original overnight stay. Read on quickly about what it's like to sleep in a yurt and where to find them!

What is it like to sleep in a yurt?
in a yurt is actually a luxurious form of camping (glamping). This is because a yurt is quite large and often furnished with normal beds, good seating areas and a stove. Normally a yurt offers space for 2 to 6 people. But in some tents you can easily roll out an extra air mattress. A yurt does not consist (like many other large tents) of several compartments, but of one large space. As a result, everything takes place in one space, which is why people often experience it as very cozy. A toilet is often located in an outbuilding.

Can you sleep in a yurt in winter?
A yurt is so well insulated that in Mongolia you can live in it up to minus 30 degrees. So a mild Dutch winter is not a problem. With a closed door and a heater it stays nice and warm inside. Sleep under a thick blanket with a real sheep blanket on top. Cosy and cozy!
