Walking holidays in Europe

What could be better than the freedom of campsite life combined with easy access to some of Europe's most beautiful countryside? Planning your walking holiday with Canvas gives you all that and more.

Our sites are set in beautiful locations often with direct access to interesting paths and routes.

And thanks to our flexible campsite arrival times, it’s easy to combine walking holidays with a city break, watersports, a fishing trip, or even a few days in France’s wine country.

If you’d like advice on choosing a walking holiday in Europe, give our friendly sales team a call on 0345 268 0827. Meanwhile, here are a few of our top campsites for walkers:

  • Camping Landal Warsberg, Saarburg - Germany
    With over 250,000 well maintained paths the German countryside is fantastic for walking holidays in Europe. Try the circular route to the quaint village of Ayl and enjoy the lovely views of the Saar Valley and local vineyards. Or explore the picturesque centre of Saarburg with its ruins and beautiful waterfalls.
  • Domaine de Chalain, Lac de Chalain - Jura, France
    Domaine de Chalain is set in an area of breathtaking natural beauty with woodland, lakes and waterfalls. The scenic hike at Les Cascades de Hérrison has plenty of resting spots along the way so pack a picnic and take in the stunning countryside.
  • Camping Valle Gaia, Cecina - Tuscany, Italy 
    A small but highly-rated site, two miles from the picturesque village of Casale Marittimo and four miles from the sandy beach at Cecina. A perfect base for exploring the Tuscan countryside.
  • Camping Val de Cantobre - Ardèche, France 
    A small campsite set in truly stunning surroundings makes this campsite perfect for nature lovers. There are many trails leading straight from the site or take a drive up to the plateaus to walk in prairie-like areas.
