As summer fades and winter gets closer, it’s easy to dismiss autumn as a dreary placeholder, but autumn has its own charms. If you take the time to appreciate the glory of the change of the seasons, perhaps autumn will become a new favourite. Here are some of our favourite autumn activities you can enjoy on your next camping trip.

Crisp air and crisp leaves Bring back a feeling of nostalgia by stepping on the crunchiest leaves and enjoying the crackle. Children love this too, and everyone can enjoy the cool, fresh air on a walk in the countryside. 

Hot drinks  Hot drinks seem to take on an extra level of enjoyableness when the weather starts to get cooler. It’s lovely to curl up with a hot drink at the end of a chilly walk or in the morning to warm yourself up before heading out. Drinks

Collect sweet chestnuts  Collecting and roasting sweet chestnuts is an activity the whole family can join in with. Just make sure you don’t roast any horse chestnuts – these are poisonous! Use them to play conkers instead.

Wrapping up warm by the fire The colder nights are a great excuse to get a fire going. Make sure that your campsite allows them before you get started. Wrapping up in cosy jumpers and blankets around a campfire in the evening can be the perfect opportunity to share stories and relax after a busy day.

Autumn leaves  Seeing the normally verdant forest turn into a riot of glorious reds, oranges and golds can create a gorgeous backdrop to any autumn activity. Whether it’s a bike ride, a picnic or a photography trip, the leaves alone can completely change the look of the countryside.A warm meal is even more appreciated when the weather is cold. Why not make it easy by taking one of our self heating meals with you?We hope you all enjoy the autumn season, whatever you choose to do.
