The Netherlands certainly doesn't have that many public taps as other countries. Maybe also because the regular tap water is of very good quality. But the recent years more and more taps are placed. Mostly to advertise against bottled water, and help people who use own (recycled) bottles. I know of two websites / apps which have a map of taps: ...

Since you seem to have an interest to camp "in the bush". You might be interested in what is called "paalkamperen". The foresty department provides designated places at remote places where you can camp in the wild. Each of these place come with a water pump. The water is not for consumption, but perfectly fine to wash. A map on the website of the ...

I've always found Wunderground to be pretty useful for travel planning. You can look up the almanac data for any given day. This link has today's data for nearby Biarritz. In addition, their travel planner has the ability to look up the historical weather for a given stretch of time. This link shows an example of the data for Biarritz from October 1 ...

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 ...

From FaroeIslands.com: Camping There are no public wilder­ness or common areas in the Faroes. As a consequence, camping is only permitted at designated camp­sites (See page 88). 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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).

I usually visit Peak District for rock climbing, so I can't offer any ready-made itineraries for walking. If I were to plan a walk myself though I would start from looking at a good map, and the Ordnance Survey Explorer series is usually the best, see: https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/shop/explorer-map-the-peak-district-white-peak-area.html and ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 - ...

I do not know Bulgaria well but I can tell you where you should look at for this kind of outdoor stuff. Karaköy is the best neighbourhood for buying outdoor and camping gear. You can find famous brands for good prices and average equipment for less. There are tens of outdoor shops there. Do not forget to negotiate the prices since there is at least 30% ...

I tend to use WeatherSpark to look up historical data. Their main mode is kind of interactive browser (which is fun to play with by itself), but they also generate averages reports for all places their system knows about. It's a little hard to pinpoint accurate location from your description, since Basque Country seems to more eagerly jump to Spain parts in ...

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.

Along the Ring Road it's acutally harder to NOT find camping areas than to find one. They are literally all over the place. Prices and facilities can vary greatly. On some grounds you get free internet and hot showers are included as well. On other grounds (the more crowded ones like Skaftafell, the main camping ground at Vatnajökull) you even have to pay to ...

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 ...

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?). ...

It's been a while, but I thought it might be nice to update this question. Last summer I've visited japan and found a camping ground at lake Aokiko. I've stayed at the Aokiko camping ground (http://www.aokiko.com/), also home of the "Evergreen outdoor center". Despite the english name, the staff doesn't speak a word English, I was happy with my ...

I did some more searching myself. The campground near Murodo seems like a excellent spot for someone like me to make day trips from, thanks for the info Manmaru! I've also found some regular campgrounds a bit more to the east around lake Aokiko and Nakatsunako, a few are visible on google maps around the two lakes here: ...

To add to previous suggestions, you can have some information on the meteofrance (french public service) website. For example, for Hendaye : http://www.meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-france/hendaye/64700 where you can see at the page bottom average rain, temperatures, and so on. (Rain is something to take into account if you plan to visit Pays Basque).

I just stayed in the Camp Curry tents at Yosemite. I believe this is what you want. Note, it's crowded. You will not feel away from everything, unless and until you hike into the back country.

So, you have got a lot of questions there at once, let me address two of them I do know about. Netherlands In the Netherlands this has been possible for quite a while and was originally called paalkamperen (though it seems it has officially been renamed sometime in the past 2 years), however it must be noted that this is bound by a lot of rules. Most ...

Wikipedia's pages for towns, cities and regions often include a "Climate" section which generally includes average and record temperatures, rainfall and so on. Also, I'm sure you know this but remember that the climate at the top of a mountain is likely to be very different than that at the bottom.

Try Edale. There are several campsites in the valley, and some great walking in all directions.
