CANADA

You don’t need us to tell you that Canada is a dream destination. With amazing wildlife and natural parks galore, this is a fantastic selection for a camping trip. You’ll be spoilt for choice. Two sites worth special mentions are Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and Athabasca Sand Dunes Provincial Park. At Pacific Rim, you’ll be spoilt for choice between lush forest and beach views stretching as far as the eye can see. At Athabasca Sand Dunes, you’ll be in for an experience of an entirely different kind. These stunning sand dunes form Canada’s largest active sand surface and provide an authentic camping experience. Bear in mind that this is a rustic experience. Don’t expect any campsite comforts here!
