Why Is Yurt Camping Popular?

Yurt camping has increasingly grown in popularity in recent years. Alpha Camp names some of the reasons for that.

  • They can keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • The round shape of the living space means less surface area is exposed to the outside temperatures.
  • Yurts provide less wind resistance as the wind moves around the curved edges rather than catching on straight sides.
