The best thing about camping is falling asleep in spectacular outdoor locations, then waking up and exploring them the next day.
So we’ve teamed up with the Camping and Caravanning Club to create a series of countryside walking routes that start and finish directly from your pitch, allowing you to discover everything the area around your campsite has to offer
These interactive route guides have all been written by outdoor experts and start and finish at more than 30 campsites around the UK, including iconic outdoor locations such as the Lake District, Peak District, Scottish Highlands and Snowdonia. Other highlights include 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 in the ViewRanger app.
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.”
There are currently 35 Camping and Caravanning Club route guides available in ViewRanger, which allow you to see your precise GPS location updating on digital maps as you walk. More Camping and Caravanning Club routes will be published over the coming months, so keep an eye out for further announcements.
So next time you book a Camping and Caravanning Club site, simply download the free ViewRanger app from the Apple App Store or Google Play, then search for 'Camping and Caravanning' routes in the app and start exploring!
