The best places to go camping in the mountains

We have plenty of places throughout Europe where holidaymakers can enjoy a camping escape in the lofty terrain of the mountains.

A classic destination for an outdoor holiday in France, the Alps reward visitors with gorgeous views, captivating landscapes, bracing fresh air and so much to see and do. For camping escapes in the heart of the French Alps, consider a stay at Campsite l'Idéal or Campsite Les Iles.

Separating the Iberian Peninsula from France, the Pyrenees mountain range is home to numerous hiking trails and blissful national parks. One of the best places to stay to experience the wilderness and wonder of the Pyrenees is Campsite Le Neptune.

In the Massif Central, a highland region in the centre of southern France, campers can explore several mountain peaks and elevated plateaux. The highest summit of the range is Puy de Sancy, and is located in the Auvergne Volcanic Regional Nature Park. Our best destinations to explore in the Massif Central include Campsite Domaine de Chaussy and Campsite Domaine Les Ranchisses.

In the east of France, a pair of mountain ranges prove popular as a camping holiday destination, namely Jura and Vosges. For joyful jaunts in the mountains of Jura, we recommend a stay at 4* Campsite Domaine de Chalain, while vibrant Vosges is best explored from Campsite Le Parc De La Fecht.

Although not directly in the mountains, a few campsites around the stunning shores of Lake Garda make a great base for day trips to Mount Baldo. Book a stay at our Lake Garda campsites such as Bella Italia, Cisano San Vito and Butterfly for expeditions to the summit of Mount Baldo.

One of our favourite mountain campsites is Manor Farm, a superb destination nestled in the Swiss Alps with excellent access to Lake Thun.

Things to do while enjoying a mountain camping holiday

Mountains and hills are a paradise for lovers of outdoor activities, especially pursuits that make the most of the captivating landscapes and stunning views.

One of the most popular things to do while enjoying a mountain camping holiday is, of course, hiking. From scaling snow-capped peaks to traversing wooded foothills, a day trekking in the mountains is simply fantastic. Plenty of mountains and hills feature waymarked trails and paths, many of which can be explored on foot or by bicycle.

High up on plateaux and in valleys, mountain lakes offer the possibility to enjoy aquatic activities such as swimming, sailing, jet skiing, windsurfing and much more. Rivers that crash through gorges set the scene for high adrenaline activities like canyoning, white water rafting, river kayaking and cave diving.

For those with a head for heights, enjoying a holiday in or around the mountain means you can enjoy dramatic panoramas of the surrounding regions. Take a cable car to the top of the mountain and be rewarded with beautiful vistas that stretch for as far as the eye can see. If you’re brave enough, soar over the terrain on a high octane parasailing or paragliding flight.
