Camping in Sweden

The best way to enjoy the outstanding natural beauty of the Swedish countryside, is to choose accommodation right in the middle of it.

SCR Swedish Camping - The National Swedish Campsite Association has more than 400 campsites in Sweden 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 cottage close to the action of, for instance, the medieval town of Visby or all alone, in the deep forest of Småland. It´s your choice

To stay at a SCR Swedish Camping associated campsite you will need a Camping Key Europe, which is a card that connects campsites all over Europe. You can buy the card online at camping.se. The card is then valid a year from the day you buy it. You may also buy the card at a campsite and the card is then valid until the end of the year.

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.
