Camping in Sweden

The SCR - The National Swedish Campsite Association has almost 500 campsites as members. The campsites are all over Sweden and offer more than 75,000 camping pitches and 9,000 cottages and cabins.

Options are overwhelming and the choice is yours. What about a cottage high on a mountain in northern Sweden, or beachside somewhere along our vast coast? A camping site by a breathtakingly beautiful deep, dark lake? A cabin in a “cabin village”, close to the action of, for instance, the medieval town of Visby or all alone in the deep forest of Småland with the nearest neighbour a mile or two away?

To stay at a Swedish campsite, you will sometimes need a camping card. The most widely accepted card is the Camping Key Europe. You can buy the card online at camping.se You do not have to check in to buy the card and it is valid until the end of the year. The card enables quicker check in and check out. A number of special offers are also associated with the card, for example discounts on ferries to and from Sweden. The card also includes an accident and liability insurance for you and your family during your stay at the campsite.

Some Swedish camping sites also accept Camping Card International, CCI.

Several camping sites are open all year round. There is accommodation ranging from the simple cabin to the fully equipped self-catering cottage, and some camping sites also offer accommodation at youth hostels.

Come and explore the great variety of camping and cottages sites in Sweden.
