I remember vividly the first time my dad took me camping. It was in a wet field just outside of Buxton in Peak District and it was raining, blowing a gale and downright miserable. I was 11 years old and, like any blossoming teenager, all I could think was why are we here?

My father's response was, 'this is all part of camping son', but I wasn't convinced.

By the next morning, the rain had drifted away and we went on a short walk in hunt of a sausage butty, followed that evening by marshmallows over the campfire. It was this one day that started me down a life under canvas.

We’ve collated a selection of Instagram campers from around the world who aim to pass on their passion for the outdoors and inspire you for your next camping trip - they're probably more persuasive than my dad...

If you have any trips to the U.S planned then you'll be inspired by Hipcamp's posts. They showcase some of the most gorgeous spots the U.S has. Exploration, camping, scenic views and more dogs is what you can expect to find on their page.

Back to basics. No fancy stove or 10 man tent, taoutdoors and his dog Jaxx camp in more, shall we say, rugged conditions and there are even videos showing you how to also survive the wilderness.

Stunning photography awaits you... marvel at the true beauty of the outdoors.

Birds singing, the morning sun on our backs & the Tetons turning gold before our eyes.
