With summer in full swing, it's a time for barbecues, picnics and spending time in the Great Outdoors. There's nothing quite like a night spent huddled around the campfire toasting marshmallows before camping underneath the stars and enjoying the peaceful surroundings.

Think beyond the tent this summer with our round-up of unusual camping holidays.
From hanging from the trees to finding shelter with your bike, these out-there getaways are certain to create lasting memories - if you dare give them a go! Discover five unique camping holidays you'll never forget...
The bubble tent
Imagine REALLY sleeping underneath the stars - minus the insects and weather hazards! With this clear bubble tent, you can have just that. The bubble tent looks like a see-through igloo and allows campers to enjoy all the indoor benefits of a regular tent, but with a much better view. You won't get much privacy though...
The floating treehouse
What do you get when you combine a hammock and a tent? A floating treehouse! This unique tent provides a suspended shelter above the ground, meaning no more creepy crawlies sneaking their way into your bed!
The Bicycle tent
Here's a unique camping holiday option for cyclists – pitching your tent on your bike. By using a bicycle instead of poles for the tent, cyclists can travel light and easily set up shelter on the go. Genius!
The hanging tent
Would you dare to sleep hanging from a tree? It certainly looks cosy but not sure about having to climb up a tree every night!
The luxurious retreat
There's camping and then there's glamping (glamorous camping). Forget about pitching a tent or unrolling your sleeping bag - glamping is all about experiencing the Great Outdoors in the most luxurious way. Yes, please!
