Camping in Europe
It’s fair to say that in the UK we don’t always get the weather for camping, however in Europe the climate as well as the high standard of campsites means that camping getaways are popular vacations for families and couples of all ages. Most campsites are in wonderful locations, and many come packed with sports facilities, restaurants and bars with family entertainment and more.
Taking your car on one of our ferry crossings to camp out in Europe makes perfect sense. Not only does it mean you can pack your tent, camping equipment and as much luggage as you need, but you can also attach a caravan or trailer to your car. Alternatively opt to travel with your motorhome and enjoy having all of your home comforts with you. What’s more, having your own vehicle with you means you can explore while you’re away and perhaps even stay at a few different campsites on a tour.
Camping in France
France is the most popular tourist destination in the world, and camping is a popular pastime in the country, both of which mean that camping facilities in France are of an exceptional standard and often surrounded by gorgeous scenery.
Camping in Holland
Dutch people love camping, and their country is perfect for it, with large swathes of flat land ideal for setting up pitches. You can also camp out near major cities such as Amsterdam and combine camping with culture.
Camping in Belgium
Whether you’re looking for a seaside resort, or for a beautiful mountainside campsite in the Ardennes, Belgium has something for you. Belgium’s location also means you can easily pop over to Holland, France, Luxembourg or Germany too.
Camping in Germany
Germany’s countryside is scenic and rugged, with lakes, mountains and seaside campsites to choose from. Areas such as the Black Forest provide stunning routes for cyclists or drivers, while the Rhine and Moselle Valleys are among the most naturally beautiful regions in Europe.
Taking your vehicle means you can almost take your kitchen sink with you on holiday. Here are some suggestions of what you should take when you camping which people often forget!
- Solar charger – in case you need extra electricity
- Basic first-aid kit
- Toiletries including sun screen and toilet paper just in case!
- Pharmaceuticals – painkillers, diarrhoea tablets, anti-allergy tablets and so on
- Waterproof clothing and wellies
- Torches with spare batteries
- Earplugs in case surroundings are noisy
- Pegs and camping clotheslines
- Washing up bowl, liquid, tea towel and cloth
