Christmas means time for the family, lots of delicious food, following traditions and enjoying contemplative moments together. But does that always have to be within the four walls at home?

We say no, Christmas is perfect for a camping trip. That's why we at FreewayCamper have some great tips on how you and your loved ones can make camping over Christmas 2023 an unforgettable experience. 😉

Why celebrate Christmas in a camper?

There are some good reasons for this! Lonely roads with interesting landscapes, snowy windows with enchanting panoramic views and cozy moments in the camper! What could be better than enjoying Christmas Eve with your loved ones, singing Christmas carols and still feeling a sense of freedom.

Whether it's a white Christmas in the mountains or a Christmas in the bright sunshine, the choice is yours in our apartments on wheels. In the camper you can keep all the family traditions and still experience a new Christmas adventure.

Christmas in a camper is different and can still be familiar, you don't have to give up anything - we tell you how to do it in this article.

For the skiers among you, Christmas in nature and the mountains has another very special advantage: thanks to the proximity to the ski resorts, you can be the first on the slopes and start perfectly into the holidays!

Camping for Christmas in Southern Europe

In Southern Europe you can celebrate Christmas far from winter temperatures, here are our favorites for it:

📌 Christmas in Andalusia

You want to enjoy Christmas in the sunshine? Then we suggest you a trip to Andalusia, Spain.

Christmas decoration in Seville

Here you can expect temperatures up to 20 degrees - perfect for all winter muffle. Despite the sun, all of Andalusia is decorated for Christmas and the so-called "Villancicos" (choirs of adults and children) provide that certain something in the streets of Andalusia.

Other highlights are the Sierra Nevada National Park, where you can enjoy winter sports and admire the beautiful snow-covered landscape. Also recommended is a trip to the coastal city of Marbella, where winter temperatures are still mild and you can explore the city without crowds of tourists.

📌 Christmas in Sicily

Even in Sicily, temperatures are still very pleasant at Christmas with around 20 degrees.

Etna volcano covered in snow

Here you can expect many charming Christmas markets, which can score with typical Sicilian delicacies. We especially recommend a tour through Palermo - there you will get the feeling of Christmas everywhere in the lovingly decorated streets.

If you want to spend a quiet time in nature over the holidays, then you should visit the nature reserve Lo Zingaro. The world famous volcano Etna is our absolute highlight in Sicily, in winter you can even ski there.

How can I decorate my camper for Christmas?

Camper on snowy campsite

In the camper is enough space for a small Christmas tree with beautiful colorful baubles, if the one in front of the door is a little too big. Even more Christmas spirit comes with Santa Claus caps on the headrests and lots of lights on the windows. If you want to make it even more Christmassy, you can of course decorate the table with a table runner, twigs and homemade stars. Add a few tea lights in a jar and your camper is ready for the special holiday season. For the Christmas feeling, of course, a cinnamon scented candle should not be missing, because at Christmas it always smells very special, right? Here again the most important summarized:

  • Christmas tree (this is also available in very small - perfect for the camper)
  • Christmas tree balls in your favorite color (we love FreewayCamper blue 😉)
  • Fairy lights (there can never be enough of them)
  • Scented candles that smell like cinnamon
  • Twigs
  • Table runner
  • Santa hat
