Active camping holidays in Europe

Finding a holiday that suits all the family or group can be a difficult task, as each member of the group will usually have different interests which they understandably like to indulge whenever they’re away from home. So a camping holiday needs some thorough thought to ensure everyone is catered for.

How can this be done? Well, the old saying rings true: you can’t please all of the people, all of the time. Balance is the key to maintaining a peaceful environment though, so look to put a piece of each party member’s personal interests into everything you plan.

There will undoubtedly be someone in your group who wants to see the sights offered by the area you’re visiting. Luckily, Europe is a hotbed of interesting places to see from both an aesthetic and historical perspective. There are obvious places to visit throughout the continent, including the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but there are also lots of little-known gems scattered around with just as much to see and experience. We recommend doing a bit of research before heading to the location of any camping holidays to make certain you see the most of what’s available.

Someone in your party may be a bit of a thrill seeker, and like nothing better than the excitement of sport or an amusement park. Luckily, Europe Is filled to the brim with places to accommodate their interests. Sports fans will find lots of open greenery for a jog, and shops with sporting equipment, ensuring they get their exercise fix whenever they feel the need!

As far as theme parks go, Europe has loads. Of course, there’s the world famous Disneyland Paris with attractions featuring all your favourite Disney characters. If this is a bit too childish for people in your party, however, one place that may appeal is Europa Park in Germany. It’s located in Rust in the south west of the country, and is home to the Wild Mouse rollercoaster. Geography buffs will like its layout, as it’s designed to represent numerous countries from around Europe.

The nature lover in your party would surely enjoy incorporating long walks and trips to places of natural beauty into any camping holidays you find yourself together for, and luckily Europe has plenty of places for this. As you can imagine, there are loads of national parks across the continent close to sites for camping holidays. One is High Tatras – also known as Vysoke Tatry – found in Northern Slovakia. One real boon of visiting this park is its proximity to Poland, making it easy to combine a visit with a trip to the country.

Parties who take camping holidays in Spain and love getting close to nature should check out Coto de Donana. It’s one for bird watchers, as it’s a big favourite among birds migrating both south from Northern Europe and north from Africa. It’s also close to Portugal, meaning it’s also possible to take a sojourn there too.

It needn’t be hell accommodating all members of your camping holidays in future. With a simple bit of preparation, you can have the time of your lives!
