Motorhome Trips in Spain

Spain is the country of tapas, sangria, flamenco and long warm summer nights. For many Brits this is good reason to make a trip through Spain by motorhome. Spain is rich in culture. Each region has its own culinary specialties, perfect for dining with stunning scenic backdrops. By travelling by motorhome, visiting different regions becomes easy, so you can stroll along the Ramblas in Barcelona, admire Sevilla’s architecture and flamenco dancers, and enjoy the mouth-watering food for which San Sebastian is famous. The country offers enough for making multiple motorhome trips, each with a new route.

For more inspiration, you can purchase a motorhome guidebook. These guidebooks contain tips for motorhoming abroad, as well as lists of motorhome aires and campsites. We’ll highlight three routes worth considering.

Our first suggested starting point is San Sebastian, from which you can travel to Madrid and Toledo to Córdoba. You’ll cross the inner country, and in the span of 1 to 2 weeks you’ll travel approximately 750 miles. 

The second route starts in Cadaquès, close to which the renowned surrealist artist Salvador Dalí lived and painted many of his works. From there, you can travel along the coast to Barcelona and València to Áquilas, on the border of Andalusia. In 1 to 2 weeks, you’ll clock about 600 miles. 

Finally, our third route crosses through the middle of Andalusia, in which you can visit Granada, Ronda, Sevilla and Córdoba. A fascinating route that takes you across around 800 miles of beautiful Spain. Make sure to set enough time apart for going on this trip, since you’ll have plenty to do for about 4 to 6 weeks.

On these routes you can stop in big cities where you can easily spend a couple of days. Especially Madrid and Barcelona have a lot to offer and are cities you need to visit sometime in your life. Toledo may be less famous, but rightfully bears the nickname ‘historic heart of Spain’. The city has a rich history in which both the Moors and the catholic kings of Spain play important roles. The cities in Andalusia are all as pretty and eccentric, with Ronda being one of the lesser known. Ronda is dubbed the ‘split city’ because of a big gorge cutting through the middle of the city. It’s situated in one of the most beautiful mountain sceneries of Spain and is sandwiched between two extraordinary natural reserves: Cabo de Gata in the East and Coto Doñana in the West.
