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: ...

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 ...

Recreation.gov lists camping and RV sites at U.S. national parks, forests and other federal land. The nightly fee shown is per site, and you're allowed up to the maximum number of people shown for that site. (I've stayed at quite a few of these campgrounds.) When you actually go to book your campsite, the web site will tell you the maximum number of people ...

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 ...

As with most things about travel in the U.S., the answer varies from state to state and from city to city. Yes, broadly speaking, it's possible to travel in the United States without paying for lodging, but I would not say it is especially easy or comfortable. There are many campsites where the fee is quite nominal (under $20), budget motels in rural areas, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

The way I understand it is that Zzyzx (I love this name) is part of the Mojave Natural Preserve in which camping is allowed, if not encouraged seeing as it is one of the main leisure activities for visitors. Both camping at organised camp grounds, as well as roadside camping are allowed. To this purpose, the Mohave NP Camping regulations explicitly mention ...

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 ...

The Greek Law Forbids Wild Camping First things first: a Greek law dating from 1976 forbids wild camping. Quoting from an article on The Guardian: Greece Wild camping here is illegal, the authorities preferring to point tourists towards money-making, taxable hotels and campsites. This rule is rampantly ignored, but we're not going to recommend that ...

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 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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

France is really dog friendly (small dogs at least) If coming from outside of Europe, you will need to have your dogs medically checked and approved (and probably chipped) and have his own sanitary passport. IMO, I would leave the dog at home; less stress for you, less stress for him BUT. Dogs are not allowed in museums and other public service buildings ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 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% ...

Indeed it is not specified but in North America, prices are usually per campsite. Sometimes there are extra fees for extra people (typically over 2), extra vehicles (over 1), or extra tents. I could not find anything anywhere on the site stating the price is per campsite, but that page mentions the limit of 2 vehicles per campsite, this one the limit of 8 ...

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 ...

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.

I answer myself. After some extensive researching, I've found this blog post in Spanish that says: The visitor center has some confortable huts with beds, bathroom and AC [..] is the only place you can stay overnight, because you cannot camp. Also, it explains that there are crocodiles in the area, so it's not a good idea to camp in the beach even ...
