When you think about taking a camping trip, Denmark may not be your first choice – but that’s not because it does not have much to offer. It’s because you do not know what it has to offer. Denmark has a lot of beautiful places that are just perfect for camping, going from sandy beaches to pretty forests and other nature reserves. In our view, here are the top 5 camping destinations in Denmark.
It has enough beauties that you may discover in just a short time – through a weekend camping trip, so to speak. That being said, if you want to jump from one camping spot to another while you are in Denmark, here are some spots that you won’t want to miss.
Camping Møns Klint
Camping Møns Klint is like a city – but it is one that is made with tents. Stretching 120 above sea level, it offers a breathtaking view of Denmark and it is an attraction that every overlander and camping enthusiast should see.
You can go there for a day or two – but to actually enjoy the site, you should take a few days to explore it. You have a decent number of woodland, steep hills, and pastures that you can see – making it the perfect choice for those who wish to add a bit of adventure to their life.
You can come with your own tent or RV, or you may rent a tent from there. They are quite spacious and are a great choice for those who wish to experience the outdoors in great comfort. You may get an essentials bag with you, but the chances are that you’ll be able to find everything you need at the campsite.
Hvidbjerg Strand Feriepark
If you want to enjoy a special weekend, then you may want to try this campsite on Denmark’s west coast. This five-star camping site not only allows you to camp out with your own tent or RV, but you may also rent a small cabin on the beach. It is the perfect choice for those who enjoy the benefits of “glamping” – and want to sleep in a bed while still somehow enjoying the outdoors.
Since you’re a nature enthusiast, you should know there are several outdoor activities that you may enjoy there. You can practice activities such as swimming, fishing, walking, horse riding, and other similar ones.
If you are camping with your family, then you might want to try out the Rabjerg Mile campsite. Set close to one of Denmark’s largest moving dunes, this campsite is perfect for families or for elders that simply want to enjoy some quiet place in the wilderness of nature.
At the site, you can enjoy a fully-equipped caravan, but also a comfortable two or four-person cabin. You also have the beach where you can go take a dive on a warm day, but if you don’t feel like walking or the weather just doesn’t seem to be on your side, then you can simply enjoy the heated pools on the campsite.
If you aren’t completely certain whether you want to go to the beach or the forest, Bornholms FamilieCamping has a solution for you: why not both? This campsite stretches from the sandy beach into the scenic forest – so, you may decide for yourself where you wish to install your tent. You can place it straight on the beach – or if you want to put your tent in the shade, you may install it at the edge of the forest. From that point, you only have a couple of steps to make until you hit the beach.
If you wish to go camping at the lakeside, then Marielyst Familiecamping may be exactly what you are looking for. The camping spot is placed at the Marielyst beach, which is about 20 minutes away from the lakeside park. Plus, you have a waterpark, a barbecue area, a play area, and shops within a 10-minute distance – making it the perfect choice for families.
