The map provides details of the legalities of Wild Camping in each country, together with the fines expected to pay, links and resources to databases in particular countries, travellers experience, in addition to average costs paid for camping.
Although it may be technically illegal to wild camp in some countries, some do find places where it is tolerated, others may be given permission to camp on private land, find places which are extremely remote and out of the way, and some countries may even provide facilities for free like municipal camping etc.
It is always advisable to be as low key as possible and to clean up after yourself.
The options available to people will depend on their method of transport and accommodation, i.e Places that are suitable for ground campers may not be suitable for those in vehicles with roof tents or self-contained vehicles etc.
