Winter camping in the Netherlands

Many people, even season campers and outdoor enthusiasts, underestimate the loveliness of winter camping. There’s no question that everyone enjoys a sunny, warm day– but nothing feels as invigorating as a waking up on a fresh,snowy morning in nature! This page contains a variety of campsites in the Netherlands with hot showers, campfire amenities and more to keep your temperature up while exploring the great outdoors.

Winter camping creates a mood. Call it hygge, gezelligheid or cosiness, colder weather makes you appreciate a warm fireplace, the warm lighting around your campsite and the company you’re with even more than usual. 

In addition, winter camping doesn’t necessarily mean no sun! Even the Dutch winter has its beautiful days when the sun is shining, but the air is crisp. As the Norwegian saying goes, there’s no such thing as bad weather, only poor clothing! So bundle up in your favourite warm jumper and throw on a well-insulating outer layer.

Winter camping activities in the Netherlands

What is winter camping without enjoying the outdoor activities you can only do during the winter? Some people prefer a cooler temperature for hiking and walking, especially if you plan stops at local cafes! After a warm lunch or coffee to pick yourself up, you can continue taking in the beautiful sights, sounds and smells of nature. If the lakes or rivers freeze over, and a white blanket of snow covers the ground, everyone can enjoy a day of ice skating, ice fishing, or snowball fights! 

It always feels good to go out for a hike in nature and to come back to your campsite to warm up by a fire. Check out our easy camping meal dinner ideas for inspiration on warming meals. If you're camping with kids, grill some marshmallows or bake chocolate stuffed bananas.

If you want to keep your children entertained, you can go foraging or leaf collecting or, if you're lucky enough to have snow, create snow angels, build your own igloo or snowman.
