Camping in North Jutland brings you, your family, and friends closer to the local nature. Enjoy many of the top-rated activities and the beautiful nature scenics. 

North Jutland is a popular camping destination and camping gives you the opportunity for an impulsive holiday - you decide where and when to go. The north of Denmark offers many different types of campsites, which of many are located close to the attractions and the beautiful nature. You can choose between glamping, campsites with full utility, pool, and mini-golf or you can go wilderness camping in one of the many nature camping grounds located all over the region.
Camping is whatever you want it to be and North Jutland can accommodate all your wishes and needs, whether it is camping by the sea, in the woods, or nearer to the city.

North Jutland offers you plenty of outdoor experiences and a lot of amazing memories awaits you here

During the season many of the Danish campsites offer different activities for you and your family. Design your very own type of holiday with activities such as bike rentals, water sports, golf, fishing, wellness, and hiking. It is also possible to camp in some holiday resorts where all utilities and activities are close to your new home. In the resorts, you do not need to worry about the weather as they offer both indoor and outdoor activities. The children can find new playmates on the playground or in the pool, as the essence of camping is community and "hygge". A lot of the campsites in North Jutland also offer the option to rent a  standard caravan, luxury caravans, and cottages with all necessary equipment included.

In most campsites, you can camp all year round, be aware that some sites may require registration in advance. In Denmark we do not have Everyman's Right, which means it is not allowed to camp anywhere you please, you may only camp in official campsites and campgrounds. This also applies to all beaches in northern Jutland. Long-term parking for caravans and trailers may only happen at sites designated for it. Denmark offers over 900 nature campsites; here it is either free to camp or you need to pay a very small fee. On these sites, you can raise a tent, though no cars, caravans, trailers, motorbikes, or scooters are allowed in the area.

Camping Cards

To access certain Danish campsites, you need a valid camping card (campingpas), known as the Camping Key Europe. This is the international card for campers, and it gives you access to some campsites that are members of camping associations in Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Consumer Organization ANWB of Holland, and ADAC from Germany.
