Is It Time You Embraced The Outdoors? The Best Places To Camp This Summer

If you’re a fan of city breaks and beach holidays, you’re not alone. For many of us, holidays entail sightseeing, shopping and soaking up the rays. This summer, why not switch things up? If you’re an intrepid or an intrigued traveller, is it time you embraced the outdoors? If you could be swayed by tents and starry skies, here are some of the best places to camp this summer.

Cornwall, UK
Cornwall is one of the UK’s prime tourist destinations, and it’s easy to see why. Quaint villages, stunning beaches, and picturesque harbours are a few of Cornwall’s redeeming features. Throw in cream teas, rugged moors, and some of the best restaurants in the country and you’ll be packing your case and buying your tent in no time at all. Camping in Cornwall is a fantastic way to get out and explore, and enjoy direct access to secluded beaches and amazing views. Newquay and Bodmin Moor are popular camping spots. Head for St Mawes or Sennan for smaller, more intimate sites.

Brittany, France
If your idea of heaven is rolling fields, rugged cliffs, and indulgent cuisine, look no further than Brittany. Camping is incredibly popular in France, and you’ll find some of the best facilities in the world on your doorstep. Spend your days at the beach before firing up the grill and enjoying a barbeque and some drinks. Head into the charming towns to start your day with a coffee and a croissant. Don’t forget to sample the freshly prepared crepes and traditional baguettes.

Grand Canyon, US
When you think of the Grand Canyon, you may not automatically envisage a camping holiday. But what better spot to appreciate the awe-inspiring beauty than a site on the edge of the park? You can avoid the crowds at sunrise and enjoy the most spectacular scenery.

Queenstown, New Zealand
If you’re planning an action-packed camping adventure, head down under to Queenstown. This thriving town is a popular spot for backpackers, and it offers all kinds of thrills and spills. Go bungee jumping or whitewater rafting. Explore the caves or go kayaking. Climb, abseil or hike to your heart’s content. Camping is a perfect way to experience the energy and soak up the atmosphere of Queenstown. It’s also much cheaper than booking hotel rooms if you’ve spent all your money on flights.

Camping essentials: What you’ll need for your trip
If you’re going camping, make sure you’re kitted out. You’ll need a tent, sleeping bag, and pillows. Take warm clothes, sturdy shoes and a stove. You should also pack cooking utensils, matches, and a backpack. You may not always be able to use your phone, so invest in a map and a torch. Take a look at for ideas. To make life in a tent easier, you may also wish to pack dry shampoo and wet wipes. Don’t forget your swimwear if you’re heading to the beach.

Camping has a bad reputation. But it can actually be a really fun and affordable way of seeing the world. If you’re thinking about planning a holiday with a difference this year, why not arrange a camping trip? Hopefully, these suggestions will inspire you and help you prepare for your intrepid adventure.
