Europe is home to an immense assortment of travel destinations. If you’ve got a campervan at your disposal, then you’ll be able to explore them easily, without spending over the odds in the process. Adventure awaits – but to where might you set off? Let’s consider a few potential spots to explore.
If you’re planning a tour of Europe in a Campervan, then making the time for Geneva and the surrounding countryside is surely worthwhile. Being centrally located, you can easily fit this part of the continent into your travel itinerary. From there, you might take the trip through the Alps, in the direction of either France or Italy.
The Amalfi Coast, Italy
Costiera Amalfitana is a series of picturesque little fishing villages which runs along a short stretch of Italy’s West Coast, just south of Naples. There are medieval castles to explore, as well as Roman ruins. In other words, you’ll get plenty of cultural and historic riches as well as natural splendour. And, if you’re in a campervan, you can slash the cost of your accommodation considerably.
This peninsula is encircled by a long route called the Ring of Kerry. This is a slightly more outdoorsy part of the country, with plenty of rivers, lakes, beaches and valleys to go hiking through. You’ll find castles and other historical sites along the way, too.
One of the major advantages of a campervan trip in Germany is the state of the highways. They’re lush and smooth, which means that you’re much less likely to run into vehicular trouble. Plus, if you’re going to be spending hours on end travelling, being able to travel on quality roads will help to keep your stress levels low.
Make sure that you allow time to visit the awe-inspiring Neuschwanstein Castle, which is about as close as real life gets to the classic fairytale palace.
What do you need to pack for a campervan trip?
Getting the most from your campervan trip means investing in specialised campervan insurance. That way, you’ll be covered in the event that anything should go wrong.
You’ll also need to getting your packing right. It’s a good idea to write down a long checklist, and stock up accordingly.
So, what might we include?
You’ll want all of the blankets, sleeping bags and pillows you need to get a good night’s rest. You’ll also want your life in the kitchen to be as comfortable and hygienic as possible. Make sure that your larder is well stocked on dry ingredients like pasta, beans, and salt, and that you have crockery, cutlery, and cooking utensils.
You should be well-stocked in cleaning equipment, which means washing-up liquid, gloves and soap. Spare gas canisters can be exchanged as they’re needed – make sure that you do your research and figure out where you can find a refill along the way!
