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 ...

I have never heard of gear specifically designed to air travel. But on the other hand all good hiking/camping gear is designed to be light and compact, as one has to carry it on his own back in a backpack which has limited space. And usually the more high end, the lighter it gets, due more advanced materials used. I'm giving entry level examples from one of ...

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 ...

Three of the four are fairly large regions ... For Thailand, though: The short (and useless) andswer is: Yes, free camping is permitted in Thailand. The longer answer is: Where, what's your idea of camping, and whose permission? If you're not too hung up on official permission, then most places you'd want to camp are fine: you won't be bothering anyone ...

On a quiet sideroad, and a beautiful west facing waterfront with a sand beach, my place is often used as an affordable base camp for those wanting to spend time in Algonquin Park. Please check my site. You can find reviews on TripAdvisor. I ...

First of all, here is a website that lets you search camp sites across Japan. Regarding the two places you mentioned, a quick search resulted in this one: There is a camping site in Iya Valley that lets you stay in a group hut or rent a tent. Here is their pricing list. There seems to be only one camp ground in Yagen Valley, and it does not offer rentals. ...

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

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.

The backpacks are outdoor sports stargazer and big bear 63 (Jansport) from www.hurricanecamping.com and were less there than at Walmart. All other items we put in a Coleman extreme cooler with a TSA lock so when we arrive we have a cooler w/ nested pots-plates, hatchet, etc. We also went w. ...

EQUIPMENT CHOICE: As other people already suggested, you should choose your camping equipment as light as possible. I would go for trekking tent or two (you can find 4-people models weighing around 4kg), quality dawn sleeping bags have the best weight/warmth ratio, and ultralight inflatable mats are most reasonable for sleeping (I use this Thermarest ...

I find it highly unlikely any company would develop gear that would accept performance compromises for the specific purpose of airline-friendliness. For myself, I want camping equipment designed for camping and I want travel equipment designed for travel. When I've done serious treks far from home, as in Tanzania and New Zealand, I'll rent gear at my ...

Cheap stuff and Singapore is a contradiction. Nothing other than food is cheap in Singapore. You'll pay several times what you would pay in KL. The shopping in KL isn't great. It isn't awful either but you're much better off in my opinion going to Bangkok or HMC if you want to shop or get cheap camping gear. You'll get a better selection and better ...

In Singapore, I'd head to the army surplus shops at Golden Mile Complex in Beach Road (nearest MRT CC5 Nicoll Highway, also walkable from Bugis). They sell cheap army gear, including everything you could possibly need for camping, and it's all intended for tropical use. Another more central (and thus probably mildly more expensive?) option is A-Team in ...

Today I bought one of the cheapest 2-man tents and cheapest sleeping bags in a "Giant" hypermarket out in the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur. Most if not all of the megamalls and hypermarkets are very difficult to get to by public transport but luckily I had a local friend with a car. My cheap gear cost only 100 ringgit (MYR). That's about 23 Euro or $30.70 US ...

Some of them are : camperscorner.com.sg adventure21.com.sg bodypac.com However I'm not able to confirm the price. Update : I went Vivo City last week and ...

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 ...

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 ...

You could easily cut parts out to fit your schedule.

I think best way to get this informations is ask the consuls this country in your country (it is good because he/she probably speak in your language and know this regulations). A few years ago I was traveling in Balkans (Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia) and I slept in such a places which owners for sure don't register me. When your are going by car just look ...
