Planning a road trip and camping adventure can be incredibly exciting, especially if you’re going with friends or family. In this post, we’ll be taking a closer look at some of the most luxurious, adventurous and memorable parts of the world to camp in, from the natural to the luxurious. Each of them will be best enjoyed when hiring an RV or campervan to park up and enjoy an overnight (or longer) stay.
Traveling in New Zealand
New Zealand has a population of roughly 5 million residents across almost 300,000 square kilometers of land. Not only does that mean you’ll find it hard to bump into people in remote locations, but you should also expect large expanses of space between destinations. As a result, we recommend hiring a vehicle, and just a quick search for New Zealand campervan rentals should point you in the right direction. From Matauri Bay, right through to the iconic Robin Hood Bay – you’ll be spoiled for choice, just be sure to put your handbrake on when parked because some sites have pretty steep inclines.
From Troodos Mountains, right through to Governor’s Bay and Ayia Napa, the tiny island of Cyprus is well-known for its camping potential, with hundreds flocking to dedicated sites each and every month. For a more natural approach, the mountain ranges that make up Troodos could be ideal, or if you’d prefer a little more glamour to your experience, there’s a glamping site just south of Akamas which is due to open soon.
Tuscany for Fun
The historic region of Tuscany in Italy is by far one of the most appealing destinations to visit and camp. Many local vineyard owners provide facilities to those wanting to camp, and as they often restrict the number of visitors, you’ll be able to enjoy peace and quiet, whilst still remaining fairly close to amenities.
Exploring Kavos, Corfu
The small Greek island of Kavos in Corfu has been a party destination for decades, but over the last few years, renovation work on the natural locations and landmarks has led many campers to travel here and enjoy the sights and sounds. There are several small mountain ranges that can be camped on – and best of all, this can be done for free. Just be sure to properly fuel your campervan because you’ll find it hard to get off of the mountains without a mode of transport.
With so many unique destinations to choose from, we’re sure you’ll feel like doing a little more research on each of them before deciding on where to visit next. Our personal favorite is New Zealand, but Tuscany comes in at a close second.
