Here is our list of the top five camping destinations in the world for you to try next time you are planning a camping vacation.

Yosemite National Park – California, USA

This national park is one of the best in the world. It is carefully conserved by park rangers and state authorities to ensure that it is kept free from developments like buildings, roads, and infrastructure. More than ninety percent of the park is designated as wilderness, giving you plenty of space to find the perfect pitch for your camp. Sleep under the stars in this pristine wilderness and see some of the most awe-inspiring and picturesque landscapes in North America.

Miyajima Island – Japan

Just a short boat ride from the large city of Hiroshima is the island of Miyajima in Japan. Here you will find an abundance of camping spots, as well as cabins to rent, nestled amongst some of the most beautiful scenery and forest in all of Asia. The deer that populate the island are incredibly friendly and most campers make a friend or two during their stay, and there are ancient temples and settlement sites for culture vultures and history buffs.

The Isle of Arran – Scotland, UK

This rugged and desolate rocky island off the coast of Scotland that has been uninhabited since before the history books were written. This doesn’t mean there isn’t life or history to be found on the isle; the nature and wildlife there hasn’t been affected by humanity’s progress and makes the island a unique place waiting for you to make fresh discoveries. There are many places to camp across the island, offering stunning seascapes and a feeling of isolation and freedom.

Lake Myvatn – Iceland

The island of fire and ice, Iceland, has lots to offer any camping enthusiast but Lake Myvatn is one of the jewels in its crown. It is a beautiful place, with stunning views of the Icelandic landscape. Camping in a campervan is a really popular way to visit the island and see all it has to offer, including the famous Northern Lights. Happy Campers have a fleet of excellent campervans for tourists to rent when they come to Iceland to experience its world-class camping sites.

Maasai Mara National Reserve – Kenya

For a truly unique camping experience, why not mix camping with a safari at Maasai Mara National Reserve. If you take your trip between July and October you can witness the massive annual migration of some of Kenya’s incredible native wildlife like zebras, wildebeests, and gazelles. The Maasai people are also nearby, and always welcome tourists and give displays of the rituals and dances to help educate and entertain their guests.
