A wild night's sleep

The sound of the wild all around you. Nothing but sky above. And no toilet within running distance. Ah yes, camping out in the Danish nature is wonderful. As well as wild camping spots around the country, there are of course many beautiful campsites. Where the toilet is but a mere sleepy shuffle away.

You can rent cabins in many of Denmark’s campsites and you typically bring your own linen along, unless you are paying for a luxury cabin. A week's cabin rental costs around 3,500kr at peak season.

Around 90% of Danish campsites with a star classification provide campervan facilities and the possibility of filling your water tank. Many campsites also have special spaces set aside for motorhomes.

Camping in Denmark: Your Guide to Affordable Overnight Stays

Denmark offers a fantastic camping experience with diverse options to suit every budget. On average, an overnight stay at a three-star campsite costs around 95 DKK for adults, but prices can vary depending on the location and facilities. Children typically pay between half and two-thirds of the adult price, making it an affordable family vacation option.

Additional Costs to Consider

Besides the overnight fee, you can expect to pay between 20 and 30 DKK per day for electricity. Some campsites may also have an environmental fee.

Year-Round Camping and Off-Season Discounts

While some campsites are only open during the summer months, approximately 200 campsites remain open year-round. These campsites often offer lower prices during the off-season, providing budget-conscious travelers with excellent value for their money.

You can always park and sleep in your campervan and motorhome in official campsites in Denmark. There are also rest stops around the country, including public car parks, where you can pull up, refresh, refill water, sleep overnight and use the services, provided you don't make a camp. If this is not allowed at specific car parks, you will see signs stating this.

If official campsites are not your thing and you crave the serenity of a night camping in the wild, Denmark is the country for you. With over 1,000 areas for wild camping, there are a multitude of natural camping experiences waiting for you. No caravans or motorised vehicles are allowed in these places. They are pure, unspoiled spots where you must leave nothing but your own footprints behind. 

Wild camping sites are often equipped with running water and toilet and around a third have shelters you can sleep in. You may only sleep a maximum of one night at each location. Be sure to read the Danish Nature Agency’s guidelines for wild camping prior to your trip.
