HomeCamper and Campspace merge to create European leader in micro camping

Peer-to-peer camping platforms HomeCamper and Campspace have merged to create what they’re calling the largest network of private camping spots in Europe.

No terms of the deal have been disclosed, but the combination of the France and Netherlands-based companies, which specialize in micro-camping or locations from private individuals, will offer 75,000 bookable spots and more than 13,000 hosts.

The merger also includes the acquisition of Camperland, a Germany based micro-camping platform. The inventory across the companies includes treehouses, yurts, cabins and private tents.

A statement from the companies said that the micro-camping segment has been growing since COVID while the wider camping market amounted to 235 million overnight stays annually according to Eurostat figures in 2022.

“We are excited to join forces with Campspace,” said Etienne de Galbert, CEO of HomeCamper.

“This merger represents a significant milestone in our mission to provide unparalleled camping experiences. Together, we are creating a stronger community that benefits hosts and campers across Europe.”

And Hugo van Donselaar, CEO of Campspace, said: “With this merger, we have a fantastic presence in the most important European camping countries. Moreover, we can further promote this most sustainable way of traveling to a larger group of travelers and hosts.”
