With its scenic lakes, rugged peaks, impressive waterfalls, and natural hot springs, Idaho is a visual treat for any lover of the outdoors. Its abundance of snow makes for unmatched skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling in the winter months, while summer offers adventures in kayaking, fishing, hiking, and sightseeing. Because yurts can be built in remote locations more easily than other accommodations, they are the obvious choice for visitors seeking glamping vacations that are immersed in nature.

Pacific Yurt Experiences in Idaho

Yurt glamping is growing in popularity in Idaho, thanks to the state’s varied landscapes that create unique camping experiences. To the north, the Idaho panhandle is replete with verdant green hills, forested mountains, and alpine lakes, while the southern portion of the state is distinguished by the sprawling valleys and farmlands of the Snake River Plain. Glamping is also the best way to camp during Idaho’s snowy winters, as yurts can be outfitted with wood or gas stoves. Check out a few of our favorite Pacific Yurt glamping experiences in Idaho.
