Looking for places to travel to in your motorhome that blows all other suggestions out the water? You’re spoilt for choice with these five locations. Once you’ve done the hardest job of whittling down the options, it’s a case of planning your route, packing your vehicle and getting your motorhome insurance sorted, then off you go!
Aalborg in Denmark
Once a passing place for Vikings, the ancient city of Aalborg is iconic. Situated right next to the Østerå River, you’ll find plenty of street art lining the alleyways, as well unusual architecture, both old and new. Have you ever heard of the Uzton Center? It was designed by the same architect as Sydney Opera House! For cultural artefacts at the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art and for delicious street food at The Lighthouse.
Isle of Skye in Scotland
To truly immerse yourself into the wilderness, try somewhere truly rural, like the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It promises breath-taking scenery, from rocky coastlines to incredible lochs. With it being so disconnected from modern day life, you’ll be well-placed to hunt out wildlife too – think puffins, seals and even dolphins if you’re lucky! In terms of places to visit, the Fairy Pools are a must (you can even take a dip if you’re feeling brave), as well as trip to Dunvegan Castle, which towers over the landscape.
Snowdonia National Park in Wales
If you’re on the hunt for a walking holiday that showcases Wales at its finest, Snowdonia National Park is the place for you. The famous Mount Snowdon is the highest point in England and Wales, while Ogwen Valley offers a great circular route. To break up the walking, you can take a trip to Portmeirion, a colourful town with Italian architecture set against an impressive woodland. For the adventurers among you, a trip to Zip World Llechwedd if well worth a visit. Here, you can complete adventure courses 500-feet underground.
The Ring Road in Iceland
Iceland is filled with long sweeping roads surrounded by spectacular natural beauty. The famous Ring Road is 1,332 kilometres-long and opens up more hot springs, lava fields and waterfalls to visit. Top attractions include roadside glaciers, such as the Eyjafjallajokull glacier. You can also pass the small town of Hveragerdi, which has lots of geothermal activity – there’s even a hot river to bathe in!
The Loire Valley in France
The Loire Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a fairytale feel, making it a truly unique escape. It’s a castle haven, with the Château de Chambord and Château Sully-sur-Loire amongst others to gawp at. On top of this, there are lots of small towns and gardens to visit. Not forgetting the incredible food and wine! This is your chance to see France at its finest.
