WINTERCAMPING

Just drive off... Is that possible?

Don't panic, this isn't another run-of-the-mill winter camping blog. You probably already know enough about snow chains, parking heaters, power connections and all other winter hacks around your vehicle. This article is about available winter sites, because you want to travel with your equipped motorhome or van.

Have you ever driven off in winter with your camper and wanted to spontaneously & legally spend the night in the ski area to be the first on the mountain in the morning, freed from the traffic chaos? If so, you know the problem: "Just go for it" is difficult when it comes to finding a place. Especially in winter, ski resorts are not geared to the needs of today's campers - or at least they haven't been until now.

Sure, in the alpine region there are many winter campsites, which you have to book felt 6 months in advance. If the weather luck then coincides with the booked period, you can enjoy your planned vacations or the weekend there, provided nothing comes in between. Otherwise, you are usually stuck with high cancellation fees.

We at Parkn'Sleep do this differently, of course:

We go out when we like it and not,

when the reservation is valid.

Parkn'Sleep place at the Hotel Wetterhorn in Grindelwald, Switzerland

According to a survey at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf, 87% of campers prefer to decide spontaneously for an overnight place instead of making a reservation. Therefore you will find on Parkn'Sleep you will only find places that can be used at any time and without a reservation. Because what do you have 4 wheels for? But not to make fixed travel plans!

Our philosophy is:

The activity, the actual experience, is the goal

- not the reservable space.
