When it comes to enjoying holidays with children, it is convenient to have alternatives to the usual hotel. The good news is that, when it comes to tourism in Spain, you have a large number of options, including camping and wild camping.
It doesn’t matter if you want to enjoy fun weekend getaways with children, if you want to discover places to go on the November bank holiday or on any other bank holiday of the year, or discover places to go on vacation in the summer in Spain. Thanks to the variety that our country offers us when traveling with children, when it comes to enjoying a different experience, we can resort to camping and live that environment to the fullest, either in nature itself or in one of the many campsites that we have within our reach.
We talk about campsites precisely because the idea of getting lost in the middle of the forest with our little ones, unless they are used to it or the area is well equipped with services, can be difficult. As an alternative, there are also many rural houses to go with children, which make it easier to enjoy the most beautiful landscapes in Spain without giving up the comforts of having a roof over us. Many of them are easy to find in the different locations that we will discuss below, although in this case we have preferred to focus on those well-equipped camping areas, as well as the most interesting children’s campsites in the country.
1. The Vall de Núria, Girona
Located in the province of Gerona, this camping area has the particularity of being only accessible via a rack railway. So the fun starts very soon. This area is a ski resort during the winter, but in the summer it becomes a fun leisure center, where you have 2,500 square meters for camping. It is equipped with WC, pegs and showers without hot water, as well as various areas for children’s leisure. So do not forget the tent and the camping bed if you opt for this option.
