If you’d like to take a camping trip this year, why not check out these amazing camping destinations in Europe before you decide where to go?
1. Provence, France
Located in Southern France, this camping destination is swathed in the sunshine. With many tents and caravan campsites to choose from in the area, there is an accommodation option to suit everyone’s needs. Ben Groundwater at 1Cover suggests learning a few words of French before you go to make your stay even more enjoyable. One of the more fast-paced camping options available, campers can enjoy taking part in adrenaline-pumping water sports which all take place in the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea. Those who enjoy keeping active can hike through the beautiful Boscodon forest and immerse themselves in the tranquillity of nature
2. Kälsviken, Sweden
Swedish laws surrounding the right of public access mean you can camp just about anywhere in this peaceful country. Take this camping trip as a chance to get away from it all; switch off your mobile phone and take in the natural landscape. The high coast trail is the ideal place to set up camp if you want to experience everything Sweden has to offer; from lush greenery to scenic coastal views, this route had it all.
3. Catalonia, Spain
For something a little bit different, a camping trip to Spain is not to be missed. This destination is ideal for families or couples hoping to relax and let their troubles melt away. With sky high-temperatures and consistently blue skies, the Spanish views will look perfect on your Instagram feed. Bring along your binoculars and try your hand at birdwatching, or hike your way to the Salt de Sallent waterfalls. With so many lake-side campsites to choose from, campers can fish for their supper or float down the waters in a kayak.
4. Calgary Beach, Scotland
Truly an isolated camping experience, this location brings you back to basics.
