Filled with breathtaking natural beauty, solitude and fun, camping is no doubt a trip you should take with your loved ones. Oblivious as to which camp sites to go to, though? Fear not! Here are some suggestions... 1. Lake Windermere, Great Britain Home to England’s largest natural lake, the Lake District is a natural conservation area famous for its lakes, forests and mountains, and its associations with the 19th Century writings of William Wordsworth. The region provides a picturesque landscape and is perfect for walking and camping. Romantic adventurers can expect to wake up to a view of fog on the ribbon lake’s surface and morning dew shining on grassy hills. Without a doubt, it’s an ideal spot for nature lovers and couples seeking rest and relaxation. 2. Lake Öljaren, Sweden Between Katrineholm and Eskilstuna in the Södermanland province is a historic area of stunning natural beauty. It’s a great camping site, especially during the summer as the lake offers a cool refreshing break or a chance to relax in the sun. Campers can also tour the romantic estate, Julita Gård, to explore its historical buildings, endless parks, diverse gardens and much more. 3. Lyon (the marketplace at Croix-Rousse), France Campers should consider stopping by the marché de la Croi x-Rousse in Lyon, where they can park for free for their first night. Since the times of silk weaving, the Croix-Rousse quarter of Lyon has always belonged to artisans. With a similar (though smaller) feel to Montmartre in Paris, more and more people have moved here in recent years seeking the vibrant theatre, music and literature scene. The neighbourhood offers plenty of boutiques and the gastronomy enjoys a worldwide reputation for its diverse mix of Alpine and Mediterranean cuisine. It’s best to secure spot towards the edge since market vendors set up their stands in the early morning. 4. Giethoorn on Lake Molengat, Netherlands
