Sweden’s most popular holiday accommodation

As a tourist country, Sweden and its campsites continue to attract increasing numbers of guests. Families with children, adventurers, bon vivants and other Swedish and international tourists are increasingly choosing campsites as a base for their holiday. Between June and August, almost half of all tourists in Sweden stay at a campsite. In July there are even more, and camping has been the most common type of holiday accommodation in Sweden for many years. In recent years, the number of guest nights at Sweden’s campsites has reached between 15 and 17 million per year. 

The best holiday locations

Sweden has a wealth of experiences to offer, and the range of accommodation available is now larger and more varied than ever. Whether a campsite is the destination for your trip or just a stop along the way, there’s something for everyone from small and charming campsites, basic pitches to complete camping resorts, glamping facilities and everything in between. They all offer some of the very best holiday locations in Sweden and are always based on nature and outdoor experiences. Every year, Sweden’s best campsites receive a Camping.se Campers’ Choice award, voted for by guests.

All campsites on Camping.se are certified in accordance with SCR industry standards. The majority of campsites on Camping.se are also classified in accordance with the SCR classification system. The classification measures a campsite’s offering and the standard it meets.

Statistics and facts

Most guests stay in caravans, but the number of people staying in motorhomes has grown rapidly in recent years and today there are more than 100,000 on the road. In total, there are almost 400,000 camping vehicles in Sweden. 

Most international guests come from Norway, Germany and the Netherlands. Today, our campsites also offer the largest selection of cottages available for guests who want to rent a cottage in Sweden.
