To my very surprise, there are spots in the Netherlands where wild camping is allowed. The Dutch Forestry offers several terrains where you can pitch your tent for free. A pump supplies water for washing or cooking (boil before drinking) and the sites are big enough for three tents. Stay for a maximum of 3 days.


The sign at the poles explains the wild camping rules.

We enjoyed this luxury for an overnight stay during our practice hike for the upcoming Fjällräven Classic. Luckily our neighbour warned us about the mice jumping up and down all over the camp. So our breakfast was saved, hanging in the trees, but some of our empty backpacks were gnawed on.
