Camping on the continent

If you have run out of camping sites in rural England, then you might want to consider moving abroad. There are many fantastic sites throughout Europe that offer the opportunity to get away from it all and experience different cultures at the same time.

A destination with a twist is a very primitive hotel in Sweden. There is no electricity or running water where you enjoy wooden huts on the shores of Lake Skarsjon. Salmon fishing is available and so is a night safari to look for wolves, deer and beavers. Wooden shacks, while simple, do offer wood burners, beds and sheepskin blankets and a special touch is a floating sauna that you can row in the middle of the lake. Not a power generator in sight! If you can’t be without your power whilst ‘getting back to nature’, why not consider Generator Rental from Newburn Power Rental?

How about spending your night in a giant glass dome? Col d’Ibardin in France offers accommodation in an eco-pod on the edge of the Pyrenees and children will love the hanging sleeping pod. If you travel with children, the children’s club and swimming pool will keep them active and busy.

For tree houses with a difference, the Baumgeflauester forest in Germany has an exceptional wooden and glass cabin that is raised above the ground and equipped with underfloor heating. There is a lake nearby for water sports, high rope lines in place through trees and the area has more than 200 miles of biking and walking routes.

Enjoy real adventures on a private island in the Netherlands. De Klutt offers teepees and tents with forests and canoes and a large communal area for games, reading and drawing. The site also offers a small grocery store and fresh bread that is sent daily to your tent. The perfect escape from everything on your own island.

Portugal might be one that you haven’t considered and it’s not all about the coast. Travel to the Serra de Monchique forest and that is a different story. Overlooking the river, the fields are shaded by olive trees and there is a saltwater swimming pool. This area also has some great hiking and canoeing spots.

If water sports are your passion, then a trip to Slovenia might be in order. Liza Camp offers access to two rivers and is surrounded by the peaks of the Bovec Valley. This campsite is large and simple but close to Bovec which offers a variety of adventure sports, shops, cafes and daily markets when you feel you need a connection back to civilization.

For stunning mountain and sunset views, head to Lo Stambecco, Italy. Across the park there is a mountainside and in the valley below a stream of melting river flows. This area is also a good stopover for the Alps. A bar and reading area awaits you there.

If you love to catch glimpses of rare wildlife, then you can’t go wrong with Camping Lagos de Somiedo in Spain. This area is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and home to the rarest wildlife in Europe including birds of prey and brown bears.
