there are plenty of campsites in The Netherlands.... (anywhere fro m7 - 25 euro's a night for two people in tent) and I guess you can find places to stay via the Communities!

Which route will you take? Maybe I can advice a bit more in detail...

Thumbs up Netherlands camping

Thanks for reply, I will travel from Dunkirk to either Arnhem or Amsterdam. My route is flexible, but will be heading to Scandinavia eventually. I am one man one bike and one tent. That may make it cheaper for me. If you suggest a different destination within Holland I can change my route. Cheers .

Hi Chef,

If you want some travel advice or route ideas for Norway let me know I can help give you some great ideas.

Also should you hug the coast up to Northern Norway you can come by and have a rest in my cabana. I live in Rogaland in Norway (South West Coast).
