Taking your dream vacation off the beaten path doesn’t have to mean sacrificing comfort. Just ask the makers of the Autonomous Tent, an off-grid camping structure created to pop up almost anywhere in the world and offer five-star luxurious living to boot. Designed by influential Modernist architect Harry Gesner, the stylish Autonomous Tent is powered by solar energy and comes with on-site waste management systems to minimize impact on the environment.

Founded by a Denver, Colorado-based startup, the Autonomous Tent promises portable luxuryglamping in two selections: the 700-square-foot Cocoon and the 1,000-square-foot Tipi. Both metal-framed tents are set atop a raised wooden deck, which accounts for the majority of the cost, and beautifully covered with a high-tech, translucent fabric shell resistant to mildew, rot, and pests. No foundations are necessary, however the Autonomous Tents are engineered to withstand 90-mile-per-hour hurricane winds and heavy snow loads of up to 30 pounds per square foot.
