The best motorhome road trip destinations

Want to hit the road to rediscover that feeling of freedom that you missed so much and to travel at your own pace? Here are our top motorhome road trip destinations, weekend or longer, to where the wind blows you.

A motorhome getaway in the Vosges

Rent your motorhome from Strasbourg, direction Route des Crêtes, between Sainte-Marie aux Mines and Cernay. 73 km of route are available to you, with the Vosges landscape on one side and the German Black Forest on the other. During your motorhome road trip, make many stops to admire the magnificent panorama of the surrounding lakes, mountains and peaks. Do you smell the pure mountain air? End your journey with the Grand Ballon, the highest point of the Vosges mountains. The more athletic can climb to the top, at an altitude of 1,424 meters, and be rewarded with a breathtaking view.

After the effort, the comfort: park your motorhome on one of the many parking lots with locals in the region listed by the Homecamper site, in Orschwihr for example, and recharge the batteries before getting back on the road the next day.

A motorhome tour to discover Normandy

Your destination is in Normandy, and it is from Paris that your motorhome road trip starts. The aptly named Way of Freedom is a route steeped in history, as it celebrates the liberation of France, Belgium and Luxembourg at the end of World War II. The road will take you to Honfleur to discover its charming little port and its typical Norman houses, and to Etretat to compete against the hollow needle, the setting of one of Arsène Lupine's famous novels. The Way of Freedom will also lead you naturally to the landing beaches and its museum: Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, Gold Beach… relive the last hours of the Second War alongside the soldiers who liberated France.

To spend the night in your motorhome, the Homecamper site offers, for example, a parking area with locals located in Ravenoville Plage, very close to the landing beaches.

A motorhome road trip in the land of volcanoes

Direction Auvergne to explore the volcanoes and their wild environment. Rent your motorhome from Lyon, destination Puy-de-Dôme! With an altitude of 1,465 meters, it is the highest volcano in the Chaîne des Puys. Before getting there, you will cross incredible hilly and green landscapes suitable for hiking, along the Tiretaine valley to the Artière gorges. You can also go canoeing on the Allier and admire the Puys mountain range while paragliding. End your motorhome tour in style with the Chaîne des Puys, a UNESCO World Heritage Site: many hikes are available to explore the various volcanoes up to the holy grail, the Puy-de-Dôme!

To prolong the magic of the place, spend the night in the heart of the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Park in Aydat, on a motorhome pitch listed on the Homecamper site.

Destination Spain for a motorhome road trip

Take a deep breath and pronounce "San Juan de Gaztelugatxe", since this is where your motorhome getaway will take you! It is from Toulouse that you will leave for the Spanish Basque coast. San Juan de Gaztelugatxe Island is a wild little gem located between the coastal towns of Bakio and Bermeo. It was the setting for pirate battles that gave birth to many legends and superstitions. Hitting the hermitage bell three times would bring good luck and scare away evil spirits. You can end your visit by climbing up to the chapel overlooking the island to enjoy the spectacle: in front of you stretches the Cantabrian Sea with its surprising cliffs eroded by water and wind.

Has your motorhome road trip made you taste this invaluable feeling of freedom and you want to continue on the road? The Spanish Basque country is full of treasures ... Bilbao, San Sebastian, Iraty Forest, Urdaibai ... you will not stop marveling.
