Camping is allowed in the National Park but there are rules and restrictions.

The following apply to small groups of 3 or less tents (max 15 persons). Larger groups should apply to the National Park (see below)

  • You must notify the National Park office of your intention to camp by post, fax or e-mail (see below)

  • You can only set up a tent one hour before sunset and it must be taken down within one hour of sunrise

  • You can only stay one night in the same place

  • You can only camp above 1600m. In the summer this rises to above the tree line (about 2,200m) due to fire risk
