The camping sector already expected to exceed five million travellers and 23 million overnight stays this summer, achieving an average occupancy of over 90%. Finally, the season has improved those forecasts, as confirmed by the Spanish National Institute of Statistics (INE). “The figure for August alone is already extraordinary: 2,113,000 travellers and 11,254,000 overnight stays”, highlighted by the Federation.

Between June and August, more than 5,241,000 travellers spent their holidays in campsites to total 25,300,000 nights in this type of accommodation. Figures which represent an 13.47% increase in travellers of compared to last summer, when there were still certain fears and limitations due to the spread of COVID-19.
