Japan does not have a general "right to access" like Scandinavian countries, wild camping on public land is theoretically illegal and wild camping on private property requires the landowner's permission. That said, both rules are only loosely enforced and there's a bit of a tradition of "urban camping" (野宿 nojuku) in Japan: simply put, if you pitch up a ...

Moreover, it is not permitted to stay overnight in your camp­ing cars along the road, at rest stops, lay-bys or view areas. Be aware that many camping sites are ...

It definitely looks like almost anyone can set a camp almost anywhere in India http://www.thrillophilia.com/blog/camps-of-india-50-best-one/ If I were a non-local camping in India, I would definitely swing by the local police station and inquire if it was safe to stay put where I wanted to camp. This way, I'd know a)if the area is safe or not b) at least ...

No. Any open fire requires a permit. A campsite might operate a communal campfire on special occasions, but guests are not allowed to light their own campfires. Reference: Icelandic Tourist Board, guidelines for campsites, section 5.7: http://www.ferdamalastofa.is/static/files/upload/files/Tjaldsvaedarit_2006.pdf Það er stranglega bannað að kveikja ...

You can go camping in the Phou Khao Khouay national park north of Vientiane. In the Nah Ha park, you can stay in some bamboo huts. There is also a campsite at the Tad Leuk Waterfalls. I am sure there are more. So to answer that part of your question, there are campsites. Sleeping outside in an unprotected area by yourself can be tricky by the way since ...

Reservations are generally recommended during the high season November-April. I was there in January and all the campings were packed. If you can plan in advance I'd say a reservation is better. Flamingo http://www.nps.gov/ever/planyourvisit/flamcamp.htm

Yes, it's completely safe. However, I camped at Flamingo a few weeks ago and the mosquitoes were horrendous. They were manifold and super aggressive, which had a serious impact on our enjoyment of the trip. I'm sure it varies a lot with the weather, but bear that in mind.

There are two campgrounds with different features and policies Flamingo http://www.nps.gov/ever/planyourvisit/flamcamp.htm Long Pine Key http://www.nps.gov/ever/planyourvisit/longpinecamp.htm You can also opt for backcountry camping http://www.nps.gov/ever/planyourvisit/backcamp.htm If you meant safe then yes, it is quite safe once you take the usual ...

The prohibition applies to liquids, gels and aerosols. Since you describe the food as squidgy it will with very high probability be considered a gel and not pass. My advice is to take freeze dried camping foods in your hand luggage. Those are entirely dry and pass without any problems (source: I do this all the time).

Wellington is actually a very small city geographically surrounded by large hills with several commuter towns that make up greater Wellington, such as Lower Hut, Upper Hut, and Porirua. When using Google maps in the area i suggest using the terrain function. Wellington, It's technically Lower Hutt Top Ten Holiday Park which is 15km (Google says 57 min on a ...

From the Ontario Parks website: Reservations are NOT always necessary at Ontario Parks; even during busy summer weekends. You can reserve a campsite at most parks five months in advance of your date of arrival. Reservations can be made online or by contacting our call centre at 1-888-ONT-PARK. Some of our most popular parks such as Killbear, Sandbanks ...

Tateyama is probably the easiest mountain to reach in the Japan Northern Alps by public transportation thanks to Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route which connects the east and west bases of the mountain (in Nagano Prefecture and Toyama Prefecture) by a series of public transportation lines, so that would be my recommendation. As for a campground, there is one ...

The ACSI Eurocampings site has a pretty comprehensive search engine and an app to find campsites.

April in Iceland can be quite cold. It can snow, even in early May. So camping in April is out of the ordinary. Consequently most camping sites do not open until May. That said, some sites are open in April so it is possible, just be prepared for the possibility of freezing temperatures.

Haven't been myself, but have always heard that the Shiretoko Peninsula at the northeastern edge of Hokkaido is the crowning jewel of natural Hokkaido. The mountains there are not as high, and you'll be out close to the sea facing Russia. This guy lives in Hokkaido and has done a a big hike around Shiretoko. Also, though it would not take your entire 5-7 ...

All they want is to collect the tourist tax from you. So go to local Tourist office and register there. You will have to repeat that as you move (travel around). Be aware that wild camping is not tolerated. Make a deal with a local farmer to stay on they land :), or do not get cough.

myself I've discovered the very rough way by experiment the trip in December throughout Armenia I had no idea it woukd get that cold but it hit -20 and I was getting no rides so it took me 3 days from Georgia to the mountains in Iran

I just spoke to my Romanian friend, who confirmed that this is technically legal. Having said that, it's not the safest thing ever, as Romania is known for high crime/theft rate against campers. If you're in the wild somewhere, it may be that much more difficult to get help if needed. There's some discussion of wild camping in Romania at this thread - ...

If it's Tuesday, this must be Belgium. To each their own, but I think you're trying to do too much in too little time. You have 4 x 24 = 96 hours. If you manage to drive non-stop, that's at least 15-16 hours (I checked Google maps, but that's assuming you won't get stuck in traffic. You'll also have to sleep, eat, find a spot, set up the tent, and put ...

The plan does sound a little crazy. As Bernhard already commented, the car is a poor choice to visit Dutch cities (you will almost certainly need to use car parks to the tune of EUR 3-5 per hour, will not be able to see anything or move between landmarks with your car and can't easily camp either, what's the point of having a car in these conditions?). ...

The link provided in the comment is a good one. In France you are allowed to do "free" camping, provided that you respect a few things: You can't do free camping in regional or national parks (as stated in the comment from Nate Eldredge) You have to take any rubbish with you and dispose of them in appropriate places DO NOT stay the night in highway stops! ...

My friend recently did a 7 - 8 day hike from Tateyama to Kamikochi. It's quite intense, but you can either choose huts or just camp at sites or wherever else. You could easily cut parts out to fit your schedule. This isn't my friend's blog, but it is the same trek with more info If you're looking for more specific information, update the question and I'll ...

Some friends and I road-tripped from Ljubljana to Athens in 2011 and we wild-camped the entire way. Albania you can really camp anywhere, Croatia you should be a little more careful, and I'd say Slovenia is in between. We didn't camp in Montenegro but I think it seemed pretty relaxed, similar to Albania. In Croatia it was probably the hardest, cos we were ...
