Thinking of heading to Europe this year? Camping is a great way to connect to the beauty of this stunning continent and there is no shortage of absolutely breathtaking places to choose from. The rolling green mountains of Austria, the deliciously blue fjords of Norway, the snow-kissed peaks of Switzerland – these are just some of the wonders that could be one zip away on the canvas of your tent.
To help us narrow things down a bit, we teamed up with our friends at Vaude to choose five campsites in Europe that deliver unforgettable views. We think you’re going to love them…
