What is better than leaving your stresses behind and completely disconnecting yourself from the outside world?? Camping around the world gives the opportunity to face new challenges, go on adventures.
For those of you who are excited to pitch your tent, well get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Fall asleep in the wilderness, stay warm around the campfire and admire the wildlife surrounding you.
Best places to go camping around the world
A sparsely populated, high-altitude region in Jammu and Kashmir conjures pictures of gompas nestling in the mountainside and colourful prayer flags fluttering in the wind. Once the mountain passes open in the spring, camps of pre-erected tents pop up, though hardier souls still carry in their own.
Yellowstone National Park, USA
Home to the world’s largest collection of geysers, Yellowstone National Park is one of the only last intact natural ecosystems in the world’s temperate zone. With 67 species of mammals and 330 species of birds, Yellowstone is a great place for wildlife viewing.
If you want to see the Northern Lights, there’s no better place than Norway between late autumn and early spring. Delve 375km into the Arctic Circle to Kvaloya, pitch up your tent and watch the show unfold. It’s the largest island in Norway, so while you can stargaze in peace there’s also a town nearby to stock up on supplies.
Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica
Corcovado National Park is home to five percent of the world’s biodiversity and described as the most “geographically intense” place in the world. It’s full of every animal you imagine seeing in the jungle, as well diverse trees and plants. It’s also a great place to hike, visit waterfalls and chill beachside.
It’s the deepest lake in Iceland and it’s been the setting for four Hollywood movies, including two James Bond flicks. Flexible camping laws allow you to pitch on any uncultivated land. Apparently it’s best to stay on the south side of the lagoon.
Yosemite National Park, California
Ninety-five percent of Yosemite National Park is designated wilderness, which means no cars, no buildings, and no electricity. Sleep under the stars and hike up to Glacier Point for a view of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, and Yosemite Falls.
Sleeping suspended from a tree has got to be one of the coolest ways to camp. Waldseilgarten-Hollschlucht is mainly a high ropes and archery centre with the opportunity to camp overnight in one of their tree tents.
Sahara Desert, Morocco
Camels, high desert dooms, and starry skies — these are a few of favourite Morocco things. The desert holds a special magic that you need to see to believe — and the Moroccan food is an added bonus.
Joshua Tree National Park, California, USA
If you want to camp out somewhere with the most spectacular view of the night sky, Joshua Tree National Park should be on your list. Just 140 miles east of Los Angeles in California, Joshua Tree is a favourite place to explore among rock climbers and photographers for its interesting geology.
