The Best Places to Camp in the World Part 1
Mount Cook National Park
There is perhaps no greater place to go camping than in New Zealand, a country renowned for it’s amazing wilderness and untouched landscapes. For those looking to stay somewhere where they can take full advantage of this beautiful land then head to Mount Cook National Park. Mount Cook is known by the Maori as ‘Aoraki’ and is in fact the countries highest sitting mountain, if you think the views from the bottom are amazing wait until you reach the top. The surround area is a vast and rugged region that’s take your breath away with every chance it’s given.
You may be surprised to find rainy old England on this list but you shouldn’t be, there are plenty of fantastic places to pitch your tent up all across the British Isles and contrary to popular belief it doesn’t rain all the time (unless of course you’re in Manchester). If you really want to experience how delightful the country can in fact be head down to Devon in the southwest, it’s almost as if it’s a completely different country down there. Not only will you be greeted by sunny weather but sandy beaches, lofty crags and spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean that lie off of the North Devon Coast.
The Trossachs and Loch Lomond
There’s nowhere quite like the Highlands of Scotland, and if you should decide to visit the Trossachs then you’ll be visiting the peaks, valleys and villages that are described simply as the Highlands in miniature. Go in the summer and you’ll be greeted by sunny weather, gorgeous waters and plenty of places to visit whilst you camp in one of the many caravan parks or even the more remote and wild camping spots across the country. The lochs and glens live up to their romantic portrayal and the surrounding forests will give you plenty to explore whilst you’re out there.
When you imagine the Alps, you may think more to ski resorts and winter holidays but as spring visits these snowy peaks you’ll see the ice begin to thaw and lush, green landscapes unravel before your eyes. This is the time for campers and hikers to head to this marvellous region and discover its quaint villages that resemble something from a storybook as well as breathing in that fresh alpine air. Its foothills are a wonderful place to camp and they’re made even better thanks to the sparkling night sky above.
Hossa National Park
Hossa National Park was first established in 2017 and sits in the northeast of Finland. Here you will find a landscape filled with old-growth spruce forests, lakes and rivers. It’s perfect for campers not only in its setting but in its layout, with lean-to shelters and cabins placed all across the park as well as spots for campfires too. What more could you ask for?
