Wild camping secrets

Wild camping can be called in countless other ways – stealth camping (Stealth Camping), wild camping, etc. In the end, they mean the same thing.

Wild camping consists of finding a quiet place away from people, staying only one night, and in the morning you have to move out as quickly as possible without being noticed. The key to all of this is to stay hidden at all times and leave no trace of your visit to the campsite either before or after.

This type of camping is not for everyone because it usually takes some time and you have to be inconspicuous at all times.

How I do it

As the night approaches, I look everywhere around the road and as soon as I see a grove or a hidden place I immediately stop, I look around for oncoming cars and when I make sure that there are none, I grab the bicycle in an instant and hide in the forest without being noticed. When I’m off the road I try to get as far away from it as possible and find a suitable and safe place to pitch my tent. In the morning, as early as possible after having breakfast and putting away the tent, I go out on the road in the same way I left it – without being noticed or simply told “not to be seen”.

I practice this kind of camping because it is cheap and I can touch nature, its inhabitants. Wild camping is also a responsibility to nature, and on each of my visits, the main rule is to leave no trace of having been there.

If you ever need or want to do such a camping trip, here are some things you should know:

  • Never stop at prohibited places
  • Never camp in someone’s yard or meadow.
  • Make sure before pitching your tent that you are not in a dry riverbed or river bed. The weather changes very quickly and in the event of a flood, the water can take away not only the tent…
  • Make sure your bike is covered so that the reflectors are not reflected when they are illuminated by a passing car on the road.
  • Wild camping is best practiced if you have a green or camouflage tent.
  • When you leave the place in the morning, never forget to leave it in the same condition in which you found it. Before you leave, collect all waste in a bag and hang it in a safe place on the bike, and when you arrive in a populated area, throw it away.

Ultimately, the choice of wild camping is entirely up to you. Keep in mind that wild camping can be a dangerous and scary adventure! Don’t take an unnecessary risk without being sure that you can actually do it!
