Through Portugal by motorhome

In Portugal, you will find everything during your motorhome journey! Think of beautiful cities like the capital Lisbon, student city Coimbra and romantic Porto. But you'll also find beautiful, varied landscapes spread all over the country, where just travelling by campervan is fantastic. Due to the short distances, you can always find a campervan pitch close to your desired destination or current location. The country is known for Fado, one of the national music styles, and the sweet Pastel de Nata, a kind of custard cake! And don't forget to try port, a slightly sweet red wine, at a port wine tasting when you are in the Douro Valley in your campervan!

Boa viagem!
