Camping in the Baltics
Camping in the Baltic States
Camping holidays in the Baltic States are ideal for nature lovers, individualists and peace seekers. Lithuania dazzles with rolling hills and impressive dune landscapes, untouched forests and the well-known water castle Trakai. Latvia boasts four national parks such as the Gauja or the Kemeri National Park and numerous nature reserves that make the heart of every nature lover beat faster. In all three Baltic countries, a network of private campgrounds with RV and caravan pitches has developed in recent years. In addition to many small familiar places, you will also find modernized camping facilities in many places, which leave nothing to be desired when it comes to comfort.
Camping on the Curonian Spit
Start the adventure "Camping in the Baltics" in Klaipeda. Near the small port city, which was once called Memel, there are several campsites right on the waterfront. Only a 10-minute ferry ride separates you from the beautiful Curonian Spit. This promontory, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000, offers its visitors white sand beaches and romantic dunes. However, wild camping is not allowed in the National Park, but you still have the opportunity to head for the only campsite on the Curonian Spit in Nida. Be as close to the Baltic Sea as ever before and enjoy pure beach feeling.
Camping in Lithuania
In the east, the two largest cities in the country with many treasures waiting for you. Park your RV and explore the cities of Vilnius and Kaunas on foot. Another highlight is the Wasserburg Trakai - this late medieval fortress from the 14th century is now used as a museum, where you can admire the historical treasures and premises of the castle. At the campsite next door, it is rather difficult to get a place for the high season, because the surrounding lake attracts many visitors. Other highlights for your camping holiday in Lithuania are the Catholic pilgrimage site "Mount of the Crosses" and the national park Aukštaitija, which is the oldest in the country.
Camping in Latvia
Be impressed by the versatility of Latvia and stop by with your RV in various locations in Latvia. Discover the Latvian Baltic Sea with its remote beaches and coasts and picturesque little villages. Another destination that you should definitely plan is the Latvian capital Riga. The city is often referred to as the "Paris of the East" and belongs to your beautiful old town to the UNESCO World Heritage Site. In and around Riga there are many different options for your perfect camping holiday in Latvia. Also worth a visit is the largest and oldest national park called Gauja. The area attracts many visitors and is known for having the largest number of lakes in the country.
Camping in Estonia
Experience Estonia's interplay of modernity and tradition. The capital Tallinn, which was European Capital of Culture 2011, enchants with its mix of medieval baroque palaces and modern buildings. For art and culture fans, a visit to Tartu, the oldest city in the Baltic region, is also worthwhile. Discover the nearly untouched nature along the Estonian coast and on the offshore islands while driving with your motorhome. On your way to the many different places of your camping holiday in Estonia you will also get to know the diversity of the country. While the islands invite you to dream and relax, you will find unique cultural treasures and picturesque mansions in the eastern hinterland of Estonia. Especially recommended is a visit to the traditional Setu villages.
