Where to take your converted campervan in winter

The beauty of having everything within your vehicle is that you can take your converted caravan anywhere! Depending on how far you are willing to travel and whether you can cope with the cold of winter in the UK or the northern hemisphere, your choices are as varied as you can make them!

Cold Destinations

Don’t mind the cold? You might want to go to the wilds of Scotland to see lochs and the amazing eagles or deer or venture even further north to the Isle of Skye. Even further northwards would be a trip to the Netherlands where you could see the northern lights in all of their glory. Tip: you can see these from Northumberland and Scotland too if you get the timing right. You may also want to consider heading to the Alps for a spot of skiing or off piste entertainment.

Perhaps taking a route along the West Coast of Ireland is more your thing? Take in the small pubs in little villages, some castles and some windswept vistas, and even a bit of surfing? Fantastic! Off you go! Remoteness is no barrier when you can cook, keep warm and dry and take your little luxuries with you. Top tip….ensure you have the best insulation in your van and heaters along with appropriate clothing. The scenery is spectacular but it is bitterly cold!

Want some Christmas cheer? You could head to one of the Christmas markets in Germany in Dusseldorf or Berlin. They run from the end of November up until Christmas.

Hotter Destinations

Want to stick to warmer climes? Then you are best heading to western Europe perhaps down to Greece, or through France and Spain or Morocco, for a hotter spell if you have two or more weeks to spend discovering the local wonders.

If you don’t actually own your own campervan, you may want to go on an ultimate van adventure in the winter destinations of Australia or New Zealand, and actually hire a campervan there, so you get all the benefits of travelling and experiencing life from the campervan, whilst experiencing their summer months and all the lifestyle, fun and amazing scenery that are there for the taking.

You have the freedom to go wherever you want so you don’t have to plan too much before you go. You will meet lots of people en route who will tell you the secret spots that the general public aren’t aware of. You could even just stick a pin on a map and make a plan around that!
