If you’re a fan of camping, and you’ve never thought about doing it in Europe, you might want to reconsider.
In much of Northern Europe, you won’t be burdened with things like campsite reservations, licenses, even trespassing.
It all comes down to one word: “allemannsretten.”
Norway, along with other countries like Scotland, Finland, and Iceland, have codified the ancient law of “everyman’s right” or “freedom to roam” into their modern laws.
So when you’re in Norway, you can pitch a tent or lay down a bed roll just about anywhere, as long as you’re at least 492 feet away from the nearest inhabited house or cabin.
You can build a fire during the winter, you can pick most berries (except cloudberries in northern Norway) and mushrooms, and you can even catch saltwater fish without a license as long…
