What are some camping activities?


Camping is an opportunity for really staying close to nature and choose from a wide range of fun outdoor activities for every taste.

If you are camping near a beach, a lake or a river, you are likely to find a good selection of watersports available, such as swimming, canoeing and kayaking, fishing and sailing, or simply relaxing on a sunlounger.

If you prefer messing about on land, there’s plenty to do out of the water too: many campsites are surrounded by beautiful scenery, and you can go exploring on foot, by bike or even on horseback. 

If you love cycling, you can go to a campsite with good cycling trails nearby, taking the bikes on the back or the top of the car, or hire them at the site; while if you like climbing, make sure you choose the right location for your holiday, like the pods of Tyn Yr Onnen Farm, on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park.


Other common camping activities might include tell stories and cooking over the campfire; or relaxing by playing cards or board games with your friends and family.
