In 2015 we searched the internet for the top caravan sites Europe had to offer. In 2016 we’ve explored Europe again, this time to bring you the best spots for a caravan holiday.
As providers of motorhome and caravan insurance we know how great owning a caravan can be. It’s all about freedom, discovery and creating new experiences. So take to the open road in 2016 and create your own adventure.
San Sebastián, Spain
Spain is not just about sun, sea and sand. In fact, the northern town of San Sebastián is famous for its gastronomy. Condé Nast Traveller put together a list of the best Michelin-starred restaurants found in the cultural town.
In 2016 San Sebastián, along with its famous cuisine, will be entertaining the world with a plethora of cultural events. After being awarded joint European Capital of Culture, celebrations are in order.
From the beach of Playa de la Concha to the historic and breath-taking views of Mounte Urgull there is plenty to see and do.
And with a variety of campsites catering for all ages it’s the perfect spot for a caravan holiday.
Denmark’s unspoilt backdrop is perfect for a touring holiday. Surrounded by sea you are never far from the beach. If it’s history and cuisine you’re looking for it can be found in abundance in Copenhagen; from the many art galleries to the fine dining restaurants.
Since you’re in a caravan or motorhome you can take a trip to Billund and visit the home of Lego. This is an amazing trip for the whole family as you explore the original Legoland theme park. Travelling from Copenhagen to Billund will take about 3 hours and there are plenty of campsites along the way.
Ljubljana is the European Green Capital 2016 and is a fantastic place to take to the great outdoors. When camping in Slovenia you can enjoy the comfort, cleanliness and peace of the surrounding nature.
When exploring Ljubljana you will find there is plenty to do. The well known zoo and Ljubljana castle are must see attractions. The strategically positioned paths make it easy to walk from the castle to Tivoli Park.
This year is particularly special for Slovenia as it marks the 25th anniversary of independence from Yugoslavia. There will be celebrations throughout 2016 which makes travelling there even more wondrous.
When travelling around Sweden, the capital city of Stockholm is a must see. It is one of few cities in the world where you can enjoy a leisurely swim in the beautifully clear city centre water ways. This is a great setting for that picture perfect moment.
Park up your motorhome or caravan at one of the many city camping spots, and be ready to explore the beautiful surrounding areas. Campsites in Stockholm cater for everyone from families to those with disabilities.
We hope you have a lovely time wherever 2016 takes you... Remember to send us a postcard!
