Alter Experiences LLC is a glamping & nature travel company based out of San Diego, CA. We're dedicated to creating meaningful experiences in nature & getting people outdoors.
We offer high altitude glamping retreats in the Cleveland National Forest, as well as cross-border experiences in Baja California.
Our glamping sites are nestled in the high mountain forests of San Diego's backcountry - sky islands where pristine nature & wild-life thrives. These are some of the most remote & biologically diverse habitats in all of Southern California.
Our sites in Baja are along the majestic Sea of Cortez - one of the most biologically diverse marine habitats on the planet!
Our sites are handpicked to offer you a truly nature immersive experience. We strive to create the most comfortable outdoor experiences, even at our most remote locations. We take all that's fun about traditional camping & combine it with modern comfort & state of the art equipment.
We offer various accommodation styles depending on location. Our Tentsile tree tents are definitely the most popular - a lightweight tree house that uses 3 anchor points to create a "living space" suspended between trees. Our elevated tree tents bring a whole new dimension to camping.
Our plush & cozy bell tent was designed with the ultimate comfort in mind! It feature all the amenities you can expect at a hotel & redefines the outdoor hospitality experience.
Our Hacienda in San Felipe is located a mere 4 hours from San Diego and offers a more cultural experience in the heart of San Felipe, next to various restaurants and the San Felipe Brewing Co. You can learn more about our Baja program here.
