A motorhome trip is a great way to explore some of the world’s most scenic destinations. Offering the freedom and flexibility to go wherever you want without having to bother about finding a place to stay, campervan travel is the greatest way to venture off the tourist trail and enjoy everything a destination has to offer. Here are our five top countries in the world for a memorable motorhome trip.

1. Norway

With striking fjords, tranquil lakes and stunning snow-capped mountains, Norway is an epic motorhome destination. With a rugged coastline which runs for over 20,000 kilometres, and incredible forests inland, the natural beauty of Norway is easily discoverable by RV.

Park up in the wilderness underneath the stars, and, if you’re lucky, witness the amazing Aurora Borealis.

2. Canada

Vast tracts of wilderness make Canada perfect for a campervan adventure, and between the glistening Great Lakes and the world-renowned Rockies, you’re never short of remarkable routes to choose from.

Popular Canadian motorhome routes include the Alaskan Highway, the Sea to Sky Highway which winds along the coastal mountains of British Columbia, and the Yellowhead Highway which offers access to the Wells Gray Provincial Park and the Athabasca Glacier.

3. France

The highways of France are lined not only with amazing, affordable wine and cheese, but also the perfect solution for weary road trippers: Aires. These handy little rest stops are free or very low-cost camping spots for motorhomes, most offering a dump station and a water tap at the very least. Often found near the main routes just outside towns, Aires range widely in appearance and amenities but are perfect for those without a strict itinerary who want an inexpensive holiday.

4. Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is one of the stunning Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa (though belonging to Spain). The island is a fantastic destination for a campervan trip.

Spectacular volcanic landscapes and pristine beaches earned the entire island the honour of UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve status in 2009. Fuerteventura also boasts some of the biggest and best beaches in the Canaries.

Choosing to campervan around Fuerteventura means you’re able to explore the island with absolute freedom, and not be stuck to the main tourist resorts. Year-round sunshine makes this island the ideal motorhome holiday destination, with safe driving conditions.

5. New Zealand

New Zealand is known as one of the top places in the world for van camping, for good reason! The scenery is incredible, with pristine beaches, rugged mountain peaks, peaceful lakes and impressive glaciers. The roads themselves offer amazing views and are relatively quiet.

Many of the best areas in New Zealand are also the most remote. Having a motorhome will give you maximum flexibility to adjust your route to take in the scenery as much as possible, stopping at any of the hundreds of freedom campgrounds that happen to be nearby. Park up and explore some of the country’s Great Walks, spend the day at the beach, or just spend the day driving; here’s a guide to the most scenic roads in New Zealand.
