Discover the 5 best destinations for an autumn motorhome trip!

Autumn has officially begun and that means that leaves are falling from the trees, mushrooms are slowly starting to grow and the autumn colours are back in full swing. In short: nature is at its best during this period. So, what are you waiting for? Go enjoy it all with your motorhome! These are the 5 best destinations for an autumn motorhome trip.

1. Brave the Belgian Ardennes during autumn

A motorhome trip to the Belgian Ardennes is always a good idea, but autumn might even be the best season to visit the Belgian Ardennes. Nature is at its best during this time of year! The forests turn red and orange, you'll find leaves everywhere and often, temperatures are still pleasant. Walk through the beautiful valleys, past fairy-tale castles, and meandering rivers while enjoying the warm autumn colours! Of course, this is also the best season to taste game. In almost every restaurant in the Belgian Ardennes and its surroundings you can taste the most delicious game dishes. Often these restaurants go all out during the game season, creating a great atmosphere! Apart from the beautiful nature, you can also visit the most picturesque cities. For example, you can visit Durbuy, one of the smallest towns in the world, or go back in time to Bouillon.

2. Take your motorhome to the Veluwe

The Dutch Veluwe area is a lovely place to be in autumn with loads of opportunities for lovely autumn hikes! The area has endless hiking possibilities through forests, heaths and sandy plains. Highly recommended is National Park De Hoge Veluwe. This is a hiker's paradise, especially in autumn. The area covers over 5,000 hectares and turns beautifully orange in autumn! Perhaps the best thing about this period is the amount of wildlife. From squirrels looking for food among the many leaves to red deer! De Veluwe also has lots to offer for the little ones! For example, think of a mushroom tour with a forest ranger or an animal safari! There is always something fun to do on the Veluwe.

3. Discover the fairytale Black Forest in Germany

The Black Forest! Every nature lover knows this popular area in Germany. The vast mountain range with many forests full of pine and fir trees is beautiful to visit all year round. Every season has its own charm, but autumn is especially beautiful with its wondourful colour spectacle! The area is home to several natural wonders, one of which is the Todtnau waterfall where the water rages down about 97 metres! The Wutachschlucht, the largest mountain gorge in all of Germany, shouldn't be missed either during your motorhome journey through the Black Forest. The Black Forest offers much more than hiking and cycling though. For example, you might want to visit Gengenbach? This historic town is full of centuries-old half-timbered houses. The town of St. Blasien is also worth a visit! Here you will find an immense cathedral with one of the largest domes in Europe. You'll for sure be impressed when you see it with your own eyes.

4. On the bucketlist: travelling to Norway by motorhome

Discover colourful Norway! Despite temperatures dropping and days getting shorter, the nature in Norway only gets more beautiful. There's beautiful autumn colours everywhere you look, especially in the mountainous areas. A hike directly from your motorhome site should be high on your to-do list. The atmosphere in Norway is very nice, with cafe's being overloaded with guests warming up next to the fireplace. Besides all the nature it has to offer, autumn is the perfect time to visit several Norwegian cities with your motorhome. In Norway, autumn means the start of the art season, in which everything revolves around art and culture. Visit an art exhibition in Oslo, go to a literature festival or take a look in one of the many museums. A museum definitely worth visiting: Oslo's National Museum, the largest art museum in all of Scandinavia!

5. The Algarve's last rays of sunshine

Want to prolong the summer and enjoy the last rays of sunshine during your motorhome trip? Then hop into your motorhome to Portugal's sunny Algarve. Temperatures will still be between 20 and 25 degrees in October with the sun still showing itself regularly. The nice thing about going to Portugal this time of year is that it is a lot quieter than in high season. You'll have the possibility to explore everything at your own pace and, due to the pleasent temperature, you will still be able to enjoy the lovely beaches. Here, too, you can see the autumn hues emerging and this makes for a beautiful picture. One place you should definitely not miss is the cave at Praia de Benagil. Which is even called one of the 10 most beautiful places in the world! We highly recommend taking a boat trip to admire the cave up close. You can also go supping or kayaking! One thing is for sure: you will be amazed by this cave!
