Yurt vs. Bell Tent

What’s The Difference?

Are you craving an authentic outdoor experience without compromising on comfort?

As you embark on your journey into the world of glamping accommodations, the choice between a yurt and a bell tent might be on your mind. These two iconic structures share an allure for the nomadic lifestyle, yet each possess unique characteristics that can significantly impact your camping escapade. Let's delve into the Yurt vs. Bell Tent debate, uncovering their nuances, similarities, and advantages.

Yurts and bell tents are often confused with one another and we understand why - from the outside, they look quite similar.

The main difference between these two is the composition of the structure itself. Modern yurts are circular wood- frame structures with vertical, lattice walls and rafters, then covered with a canvas material.

Their set up is more complicated and time consuming, and yields a more permanent, heavy duty result.Given the composition of the yurt, it also requires a level surface underneath.

Bell tents are circular, soft-sided canvas tents supported with a center pole and guy lines, and are generally more versatile than a yurt.

Luna Glamping canvas bell tents are highly portable and easy to set up - do it yourself or with a friend in under 30 minutes! With multiple sizes and optional wood stove kit, we have bell tents to accomodate any size of family or event in any climate.
