Camping, agrotourism and caravaning undergoing a renaissance in the COVID era. What connects these forms of recreation is the possibility of isolating families or groups, who arrived together from other families or groups of people. The choice of the form of recreation depends on many factors, including financial possibilities and individual preferences. Living in a tent is more popular among young people. Usually, together with the age, tourists' requirements are increasing. To meet those requirements the concept of glamping was developed in the 21st century. As a new concept is not very popular, however, COVID era will definitely accelerate its development. In the so called “new” reality the tourism industry need to be even more ingenious in order to regain interest in the traditional tourist services that have been offered, but also to look more and more at different and innovative leisure options.
