What will my Blink camp include?

Whatever you want. From luxury tents and dining facilities to mobile spas and vehicles. This will be your own ‘moving hotel’ and can include all the comforts and amenities you’d expect even in the heart of Paris. Your Blink camp will be set up and stage-managed by our team of specialist Travel Experts. We’ll build the site before you arrive, and we’ll dismantle it once you’re gone.

Accommodation

We’ll source some of the world’s most comfortable and luxurious ‘tents’ for your stay. Really, these are closer to collapsible hotel suites. Bedding, electricity, lamps, and facilities. Just ask, and we’ll include it.

Drinking and dining

Private chefs, Argentine barbecues, foraging expeditions and cocktail classes. We’ll arrange every meal, and you can get as involved as much or as little as you’d like. From silver service to old-fashioned cookouts.

Experiences

We can plan an entire itinerary of activities and events from the moment you arrive to the moment you depart. Horse-riding, kayaking, climbing, skiing. This depends entirely on your tastes and the landscapes of the surrounding area.

Facilities

Beyond the obvious, our Blink facilities can include everything from a mobile spa to an on-site masseuse. As ever, you only have to ask.

It’s also one of the best star-gazing locations in the world. The flat and expansive landscapes are perfect for our Dome Tents that offer guests space and serenity and seamlessly blend in with the stunning salt plains.

What the press say

We've been winning awards for our innovative travel experiences since we were founded in 2005. Here's just a few nice words that's been said about us recently:

Robb Report

“When it comes to dreaming up (and actually executing) bucket-list-level excursions into some of the most far-flung parts of the world, you would be hard-pressed to find a company that does it better than Black Tomato”

Forbes logo

“With Blink, nobody will experience your chosen destination in the manner you and your guests will. It’s yours and only yours”

Bloomberg logo

“You pick a country or region, and Black Tomato will find a pristine parcel of land on which to build you a fully customized pop-up hotel, complete with staff and meals and excursions. It’s tailor-made travel in the most literal way ever”

Frequently asked questions

What does it cost?

Pricing is on request and reflects your destination and the complexity of your requests and requirements. Get in touch for more information.

Where can't I do Blink?

Blink is about remoteness and far-flung places. It’s not suited for cities or for built up areas. What’s more, you won’t necessarily be able to do Blink inside conservation areas or National Parks (because of the laws and regulations surrounding those locales). But that still leaves huge tracts of the world in which we can bring your Blink experience to life, many of which are rarely visited by travellers (or even locals).

How many nights should my Blink camp last?

This really depends on you. Some clients use Blink to coincide with a specific calendar moment (like a solar eclipse). Others prefer longer, more open-ended camps, or choose to integrate Blink within a larger itinerary.

Can't find it? Don't worry. Just because it's not here, doesn't mean we can't do it.
