The title of ‘Europe’s highest campsite’ sounds impressive on paper, but just wait until you see it in-person. Located at 1,950 metres above sea level in Val d'Hérens-Valais, Camping Arolla is in the foothills of various incredible Alpine peaks and glaciers, making for a truly breath-taking setting. As well as exploring the marvellous location, there are lots of on-site activities, including Pétanque sets for hire, a communal barbecue and a reading box, where people can borrow and deposit books. Keep it traditional with a regular tent (which you can also hire at the site) or up your camping game by glamping in a cosy ‘cocooning tent’.
Whether you want to go glamping, sleep under canvas, relax in a cosy wooden pod or even sleep in a giant bubble while gazing at the stars, Switzerland has a huge range of camping experiences. We’ve rounded up some of our favourites to help you start planning for summer.
