Outdoor living in the Maxi Tent

Outdoor living in the Maxi Tent

We’re all about outdoor living at Canvas. And for the ultimate outdoor holiday experience, nothing beats the Maxi Tent.

Sleeping under canvas is a great adventure – you get all the good bits of outdoor living (fresh air, freedom, fun) in a super luxurious tent, with kitchen, electric lighting and proper beds.

Our holidaymakers tell us there really is no other holiday like it! Here’s ten of our favourite campsites with tents…

Best for… a relaxed setting

In the heart of the Black Forest, Campingplatz Kinzigtal is one of the smallest campsites in our programme. Family-run, the owners are on hand to help you get the best from your holiday, including advice on walking and cycling routes in the area. We’ve worked with the campsite for many years and have many customers who return time and time again.

Best for… toddlers
