Spending time away on holiday with your family is so important, not only for your health and mental wellbeing but as a way to bond and strengthen your relationships. Because holidays seem to go by so quickly, you need to make the most of them, and an excellent way to do this is to try something different, like visiting campgrounds and RV parks near you. It’s very easy to book the same sort of holiday each year, the traditional city breaks, rent a house on the beach or a cabin by a lake, but why not think about more of a road trip style holiday by renting an RV?
Fun Fact: What we call an RV here in the United States is the same as a campervan or motorhome in other parts of the world.
Y’all know that I grew up camping as a kid and absolutely adore the memories, sights, scents, and sounds you just cannot get any other way.
With that in mind, here are five great motorhome holiday destinations.
One of, if not the best, motorhome holiday destination on offer is Europe. Because of the variety of experiences, locations, and cultures, it was too difficult to choose just one European country! If you do decide to visit Europe, the good thing is, you don’t have to choose! Traveling between countries is very simple, and even if you chose to stay in one, there will always be things to do. You can stay in Western Europe and experience countries such as France, Italy and Switzerland or travel through to Eastern Europe and discover lesser known, but still fantastic, destination as Croatia, Hungary, and Slovakia. Holidays based around campervan hire are commonplace in Europe, so the facilities to accommodate camper vans can easily be found on campsites and while driving.
A campervan is a fantastic way to explore this beautiful country. There are many brilliant drives and a variety of camping grounds to experience the beautiful scenery. One such route is the Cairns to Brisbane which sticks to the coast and runs along the breathtakingly beautiful Great Barrier Reef. Alternatively, you could take the epic journey from Adelaide to Darwin which passes through the Northern Territory so you can see the historical sight of Uluru.
The United States
One of my bucket list items is to travel the United States in an RV when I retire. After all, the United States is a country that is famous for road trips. The road network is highly developed meaning there isn’t anywhere that you can’t drive to if you want to go. The world-famous Route 66 may be the first thought that comes to mind, but with the number of coastal trips that can be done, along with simply planning your own to see any number of the sights inland, such as Mount Rushmore or Niagara Falls, the U.S.A is a dream destination for camper holidays.
Perhaps not the first place you think of when planning a motorhome holiday, but South Africa is a country which offers visitors several fantastic destinations to visit on a campervan holiday. The Golden Route stretches for around 200 km and included attractions such as the Golden Route National Park and Tsitsikamma National Park. Campervans won’t have any issues on the roads as even city infrastructure is developed to manage campervans and the campsites often have BBQ grills for cooking. One of the significant advantages of going on a campervan holiday in South Africa is the accessibility to safari and the fantastic experiences which you can get for it.
Along with the U.S, Canada is a fantastic option for motorhome holidays and a real paradise for nature lovers. Making your way through this vast country, you can see wildlife only found in Canada. If you want an epic adventure, traveling from the west coast to the east will give you a serious challenge but produce some fantastic memories. Banff National Park is one of the most spectacular attractions and should be high on the list for any visitors.
