Tent, camper van, caravan, or a small sleeping pod under the stars: Camping and caravan holidays are a popular option if you love the great outdoors. And if you really want to unplug and connect with nature, the appeal of pitching up in the wilderness is obvious. However, wild camping and camping in car parks is not permitted anywhere at Lake Achensee and in the mountains, and the region is patrolled regularly. The region has five campsites which are open in summer and in winter. All of them offer gorgeous views and some have free access to the lake, letting you enjoy the benefits of staying outdoors to the full.
Are you a fan of packing and travelling light? Do you enjoy waking up to the sounds of nature, savouring your first coffee in the morning sun, and not having set mealtimes? Your outdoor adventure starts here!
