Read about some of the unique features of mountain camping to get you excited for your trip.
Camping in the mountains means a range of different sports and outdoor activities on your doorstep. Choose a campsite in the Vosges Mountains and discover paragliding, rock climbing or hiking, or try water sports, such as kayaking, water skiing or jet skiing, on one of the glacial lakes.
If you are looking for an action-packed holiday, a mountain campsite will save you time travelling to the start of hiking trails, allowing you to wake up surrounded by routes and maximise your time. Choose a mountain campsite in the Pyrenees and visit the Parc National des Pyrénées to follow the GR 10 route which runs from coast to coast.
One of the main highlights of camping in the mountains is the unbeatable scenery. You’ll find peaks of varying heights, mountain streams and lakes, and green or snow-covered forests depending on when you visit. It’s the perfect break away from city life and you will return fully refreshed and rested.
France’s mountainous regions are popular with wine enthusiasts. Visit a mountain campsite in the region of Jura, where the soil is derived from limestone rocks and ideal for vineyards. Take the Jura Wine Route and try famous local wines like the Vin de Paille, while taking in the amazing scenery.
Visiting a mountain campsite in France is a great opportunity to try the famous French cuisine and local delights. When visiting the French Alps, try some of the rich and indulgent specialities like raclette, which is usually accompanied by potatoes and dried meats, or share a fondue of local cheeses with the family.
When camping in the mountains you can still explore nearby French villages and towns. Book a campsite in Grenoble, at the foot of the Alps, and discover La Bastille fortress, or visit popular museums like the Musée de Grenoble and the Musée Dauphinois.
Even though mountain campsites can be secluded, there are lots of options located near villages, which are great for exploring. When visiting a campsite located in the Hautes-Alpes, take a trip to the old and charming village of Orpierre, or visit the prehistoric caves of Soyons.
The main highlight of camping in the mountains has to be the spectacular panoramic views. Camp in the Massif Central and Auvergne Mountains and enjoy 360-degree views of rolling mountains, dormant volcanoes such as Put de Dôme, and rivers like the Loire, which is the longest river in France.
There are some great benefits to consider when planning a mountain campsite for your next trip.
A great benefit of visiting a mountain campsite is that there is so much to discover throughout the year. In the winter, take a tour of the snowy peaks and spend the evenings in one of the cosy rented accommodation options. In the summer, enjoy water sports on the lakes, or relax in one of the on-site swimming pools.
If the thought of sleeping in the mountains makes you feel a bit nervous, you can take comfort in the fact that campsites bookable through Campsited have all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. Dine in one of the on-site restaurants, make use of fully equipped bathrooms, or stay connected with Wi-Fi.
It is extremely easy to stay active when staying in a campsite in the mountains, as there are so many activities to do on your doorstep. When visiting in the winter months, mountainous ranges like the French Alps are perfect to try your hand at skiing or snowboarding.
A camping trip in the mountains is a peaceful alternative to a city break. Enjoy the peace and quiet of a campsite in a more remote location, where the only noises you will hear are the sounds of nature. This means a great night’s sleep and the chance to return from your trip feeling rejuvenated.
There is no better place to enjoy fresh air, free from pollution, than in a campsite in the French countryside. When staying at a mountain campsite you get to experience the clean mountain air and enjoy the many health benefits from spending time outside.
