Top Remote camping Locations in Europe

Sometimes getting away from the hustle and bustle of life is just what you need to recharge and relax. During the holidays season most campsites are just as full as any beach side resort, and if you want peace and solitude they often don’t meet the need. Escape to some of Europe’s most remote camping locations. These camping destinations offer some of Europe’s most beautiful scenery, without the mass crowds to block the view.

1. Lo Stambecco, Alta Vita, Italy

Located in the tiny village of Volnontey, Italy  in Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso, the Lo Stambecco Campsite is the perfect location for those looking to reconnect with nature. Nestled high in the Italian Alps,  the Lo Stambecco campsite offers all of the amenities you could need, with the added freedom to be able to pitch your tent in the forest instead of on-site. Forgo the noisy camping neighbors and seclude yourself under a canopy of

trees. Spend your days looking for the famous Ibexes while you hike the incredible trails of the Italian Alps.

2. Petit Praz Switzerland

Petit Praz is a spectacular campsite, 2000 metres high in the Swiss Alps. The campsite claims to be the highest in Europe (nobody seems to be arguing this fact) and provides views of the stunning Mont Collon North Face. In addition to the wonderful remote location, the campsite is only a short walk from the crystal blue lake of Lac Bleu.

3. Lagos de Somiedo, Spain

Lagos de Somiedo in the Cantabrian Mountains of Northern Spain is a remote campsite with a trek not so suitable for caravanners. Campers must abandon their vehicles at the campsite car park and grab a provided wheelbarrow to get their things to the site. There are no cars or other distractions at Lagos de Somiedo, just a natural campsite without pitching restrictions and the cool mountain air.

4. Douro Valley, Portugal

Douro Valley, Portugal is one of the most underrated regions of Europe. Rolling hills of world-class vineyards, historical towns untouched by tourists, and breathtaking mountain scenery. Free camping is legal in the area, so just explore to find the best place to pitch your tent or park the campervan. You will have endless remote locations to choose from, in one of the most beautiful regions of Portugal.

5. Unkervatnet, Ørnes, Norway

Escape to the remote lake of Unkervatnet in the Nordland county of Norway. For visitors to this scenic locale, there are campsites available on the eastern and northern shores. Go fishing for arctic trout and char during the day, and watch the Aurora Borealis at night. In the colder months there are cabins available, as well as snowmobile trails. Unkervatnet Lake is remote, gorgeous, and a haven for water and outdoor activities. Norway provides the ultimate escape for a remote camping holiday abroad.
