The Best Places in the World for Camping Holidays

The Mediterranean Coast

“I think the best place to go camping in Europe is by the coast of the Mediterranean sea. Personally, I find Spain beautiful, it has so many beaches and a large coast. However, in my opinion, the best  place is the Croatian coast and the Montenegro coast. There are so many wild places without people and cities – the landscape is fantastic.”

The Best Places in the World for Hunting Holidays

Glacier National Park

Glacier’s beauty is unparalleled, and their trail system and shuttle service make it easy to become immersed in it.

With Lake McDonald and Saint Mary’s Lake anchoring the Going to the Sun Road, swimming and fishing can be your camping mainstays.

Kids and adults alike love crossing snowfields in the middle of the summer. When there’s snow, you can keep an eye out for mountain goats. There is also a plethora of bighorn sheep, bear, and moose.

Several hiking trails cross the continental divide, and if you plan your hiking route from and to Going to the Sun Road, you won’t need to hike a loop. The shuttle can drop you off at one point and pick you up at your destination.

The campgrounds in the park are lovely but fill early during peak season. There are many equally wonderful campgrounds in the National Forest surrounding the park if you need another option.

Montana

Montana is one of the best places to take a hunting holiday for several reasons.

First, the game. From birds to bears and everything in between, Montana has it. Trophy bull elk, mule and whitetail deer, and pronghorn antelope are some of the most popular game animals.

Second, the land. If you’re looking for a public lands hunt, about one-third of the state is public land. With OnX Maps, you can be sure of where you are even if it’s your first visit to the state.

The eastern part of the state is mainly flat. The middle of the state hosts the biggest elk and mule deer, but the Missouri River Breaks terrain can be difficult to navigate with many steep ravines. The western part of the state is mountainous and high in elevation, so you’ll need to be in shape
to navigate the forests.

Third, the hospitality. The people in Montana are nice. They treat visitors with warmth and welcome.

One technique that works well in Montana is spot and stalk. Glass and find an animal you’d like to go after and then figure out the best way to get to it.

Get comfortable shooting 300-400 yards, because that’s how far most shots will need to be. If you are skilled in long-range shooting, you’ll do even better.
