Dad, before zipping up the tent, will you tell me about the stars?
Here are 5 family-friendly campsites where you can fall asleep under a blanket of stars
SUMMER 2020 - Mum and dad have set up the tent and the younger ones are now busy blowing up the air mattresses which will soon be magically transformed into beds fit for kings. “Mum, can we stay up tonight to look at the stars?”, “Dad, will you tell me the story about that great big star that sailors always keep an eye on?”.
Indeed, it’s while camping that children can get closer to nature, discover new things and sleep under the stars.
Here in Trentino, nestled between the Italian Alps and Lake Garda, there are numerous family-oriented campsites. Some have play areas, others entertainment or special courses for young ones, but all are set in unique natural surroundings, be it by a lake or in the mountains. Here’s a selection of the most family-friendly campsites for you this summer.
So much to do
Situated on the banks of Lake Ledro, which features superb turquoise waters, Camping Al Sole offers you a wide range of activities and excursions. Here you can enjoy a relaxing break and do many sports with your family on the lake, ranging from swimming to canoeing to sailing.
For young sports enthusiasts
Close to the famous Monte Colodri climbing walls in Arco, Camping Zoo is ideal both for climbers and families seeking an “active” holiday. It boasts two indoor swimming pools and is in a strategic position for mountain biking, hiking, surfing and sailing on Lake Garda.
Soaking up the mountains
