Spending some time in nature, under a clear sky, surrounded by family or friends is a treat for anyone. But don’t just settle for a park or nearby woods to pitch a tent. Take your camping trip to a whole new level by visiting some of these marvelous destinations.
Before you go
Besides the obvious - clothes, food and water - ensure you have all of the equipment you’ll need, like a tent, sleeping bag, comfy shoes, torch, insect spray and so on. You’ll also need a big backpack to carry it all in.
Wherever the destination, remember to pay attention to the environment and don’t leave any rubbish behind. The same caution should be taken with camp fires.
Now that you know the most important things, let’s see those camping destinations you should visit:
Napali Coast State Wilderness Park, Kauai, Hawaii
Hawaii is a great place for any type of vacation as it has everything, including space for campers.
This park has two major campgrounds: Miloli’i and Hanakoa. Both are perfect spots for setting up your tent and enjoying the wonders of nature.
These campgrounds also have mesmerizing beaches, however Miloli’i is only accessible by boat, but it is definitely worth the journey.
Odda Camping, Norway
Norway overall is breathtaking, but Odda campsite is something to especially marvel.
The campsite is in true wilderness and is filled with natural wonders because of its position between two National parks.
There are glaciers, mountains, waterfalls and many other dramatic landscapes to see at Odda.
It’s also open year-round, but it’s best to visit during the summer when the weather is most pleasant, and winter weather can be extreme.
If you want to enjoy sun, sea and sand while camping, then Samothraki is the place for you.
Here, you can choose from several beaches for your camping site, including Cristos, Gria and Paradeisos.
Plus, the coastline here is spotless, which leaves plenty of room for finding the perfect spot.
What’s more, they’re open throughout the year and aren’t mass tourist areas, so you can have peace and quiet whenever you choose to go.
The weather is nice throughout the year, but summers can get hot.
One thing is for sure: if you do decide to go to Samothraki for your camping trip, you can expect clean beaches, golden sands and plenty of open spaces to explore.
Shimo Lake, Shojiko, Japan
Camping trips demand great locations - and views. With this in mind, why not go to Shimo Lake and wake up with one of the most amazing views imaginable: Mount Fuji.
The campsite opens in March and closes in autumn, but you can pick any month between the two seasons - and the stunning scenery will be waiting to be enjoyed and explored.
Best of all, the whole lake overlooks Fuji-san, so you can pitch your tent almost anywhere and wake up to the same panorama.
Grampians National Park, Victoria, Australia
This national park is situated off north of the Great Ocean Road and offers some stunning mountain views.
Here, you can explore nature on endless walks or for those a little more adventurous, take overnight hikes and find spectacular camping spots among the mountain peaks.
