Is camping with kids something that excites you or scares you? Glamping has its advantages, since it combines nature with a comfortable holiday, but in terms of adventure, it cannot be compared to traditional camping, with a tent, a sleeping bag and flashlight, especially for children.
From simply loading the car with the tent and all the necessary objects, setting up the tent as a family and ending up literally sleeping under the stars, listening to all the sounds of Nature, not forgetting the birds singing or the water running, everything will make camping with children a unique experience, for kids and adults alike. Setting up and unsetting the tent itself always results in a lot of laughter in the family, but also don't forget the stove to make the typical camping barbecue. You will see that the degree of adventure is directly proportional to the excitement of the children. All About Portugal has chosen the best places for camping with children, for a memorable family holiday.
