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 ...

I haven't been to Rock Werchter specifically but I have been to a few other Belgian festivals like Pukkelpop (similar in size). There's a few aspects to your question Fun(Music) Hands down the camping area. I've seen on the website that all 10 camping areas are located surrounding the festival area so you'll always hear the music even at your tent which ...

The ADAC provides a nice map that allows for route calculation, but also displays all the campsites along a route. I checked your route from Antwerps to the Tatra national park and basically, the campsites along the route are so dense that it doesn't really matter: In Poland, there is basically every 50 to 100 kilometres a camping site directly next to ...

Lock your Valuables Away I think the heart of the question lies in this requirement: keeping my stuff safe Fulfilling this is somewhat accommodation-independent. You could look for luggage storage places -- such as those usually available in train stations -- or lockers -- some festival campsites do have them --, and use those for the valuables you ...

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 ...

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 ...

You best option is to stay at the camping of Rock Werchter (camping tickets should be bought separately, since they are not included in you combi ticket). Camping & food You'll most likely arrive at Leuven station by train. There are a lot of free buses from Leuven, which brings you near the campings. You could best buy some cheap food in a ...

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.

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).

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 ...

It will depend on where in Spain, as that is regulated by local government (autonomías). You should ask the local municipality (ayuntamiento) for an authorization, and you will probably be required to pay some form of tax. I've been trying to find an authoritative source but, as Spanish government is so decentralised, regulation is so fragmented that I ...

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 ...

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 ...

The British Constitution, extending all the way back to ancient authorities like the Magna Carta, informs us that all land in England and Wales is owned, and hence you need the owner's permission to camp out. Having said that, the rambling constituency in England and Wales is quite powerful, and gets outspoken support from the media. Parliament has ...

For incoming items (including most of the major meteor streams) coming from the North to Easterly direction, and not too bad for West of North as well (not so good for from the South) East the utterly marvellous location to beat most others is Glover park above the cliffs to the East of St Heliers Bay. You may be able to drive up Waitara Rd and Park - but ...

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 ...

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% ...

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 - ...

Looked in the Chilean Ministry of Tourism site and they have a touristic services search where you can search for campings in specific regions os cities. Besides that I search the Google and found some others like campingchile which seems a good source, even though I can't be sure of how accurate it is. Mind that Chile is a country with many volcanoes and ...

Looked in the Chilean Ministry of Tourism site and they have a touristic services search where you can search for campings in specific regions os cities. Searching for Torres del Paine and camping gave me 4 results. Have you checked those camping sites? There is a site only about Torres del Paine including a travel experience that might be of interest even ...

Well, depends on how long are you willing to drive. Of the top eight stargazing spots in New Zealand one is 2.5 hours drive from Auckland: Ngongotaha. Of course, you can just visit the Stardome Observatory in Cornwall Park if you want a short trip.

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! ...

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 ...

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.

Flagstaff is no longer a small town. The metro area has an estimated population of over 135,000. I suggest looking at the Grand Canyon web site and making a reservation for lodging, either in the park or outside. This includes camping. As far as activities, you may a get a beautiful clear winter day. And you may not. You are probably aware that all tourist ...
