Mixing camping trips with country walks is easier than ever thanks to a new series of route guides from the Camping and Caravanning Club that can be downloaded and followed in the ViewRanger app.
Walking is the number one activity for the Camping and Caravanning Club’s 600,000 members, which is why they’ve partnered with ViewRanger to create a series of interactive route guides that start and finish at more than 30 campsites around the UK.
Iconic outdoor locations such as the Lake District, Peak District, Scottish Highlands and Snowdonia are all featured – with other highlights including the forests of Cannock Chase, the Devonshire coast and the historical sites of Salisbury – and every route is available to download and follow for free on your smartphone.
Camping and Caravanning Club print editor Stuart Kidman said: “We’ve devised a series of circular walks from a number of our UK Club Sites, so members can enjoy tailor-made routes directly from their pitch. Along the way they’ll find points of interest including ancient monuments, natural wonders, picturesque views and often the promise of a good pit-stop at a pub or café.
“ViewRanger has provided the ideal platform for us to do this. With its easy-to-use app and versatility as a route-planning tool, we’ve been able to create a user experience that we hope will be widely used for years to come, and one that we can improve on over time.”
There are currently 35 Camping and Caravanning Club route guides available in ViewRanger, allowing app users to see their precise GPS location updating on digital maps as they walk. More Camping and Caravanning Club routes will be published over the coming months, so keep an eye out for further announcements.
To follow the routes on your smartphone, tablet or smartwatch, simply download the free ViewRanger app from the Apple App Store or Google Play, then either search for 'Camping and Caravanning' routes in the app or click this link to explore the full collection.
