So, if you agree, don’t miss this post. We will share with you some of the most spectacular motorhome routes you can find in our country.
The best caravan routes in Spain
1. The Alt Empordà
We start our route from the northeast of the peninsula. In this area of Catalonia you will find beautiful beach landscapes which are typical of the Costa Brava. But you will also see stunning mountain postcards because of the Eastern Pyrenees.
Particularly, some of the places that must be visited on this route are Colera, Llançà, Port de la Selva, L’Escala, Roses or Cadaqués. All of them are typically Mediterranean coastal towns surrounded by native vegetation. Among them, Cadaqués stands out for having served as an inspiration and refuge for artists such as Salvador Dali, Joan Miró or Federico García Lorca. Moreover, during your caravan route don’t forget to visit the dolmen de la Creu d’en Cobertella, in Rose, or the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes in the province of Girona. And if you are looking for something more, then add to your route Empuriabrava, the cultural and political capital of this region.
2. On a caravan route along the Asturias coast
If green landscapes and rural tourism are what you like best, this caravan routing route along the Asturian coast which is full of lighthouses, viewpoints and fishing villages will leave you speechless.
And now it’s time to take note of some of the places where you will have to park your caravan. Cudillero, Lastres, Llanes or Ribadesella are only some of the spots where you will admire colourful picturesque houses, enjoy delightful sea views and taste an exquisite gastronomy.
Moreover, when on route we highly recommend to stop at some viewpoints such as San Roque, Fitu (which is famous for its 360º views), Cabo de Peñas or Cabo Video. For more cosmopolitan or cultural plans, however, we advise you to go to Gijón, Covadonga, Oviedo, Avilés or Cangas de Onís.
Meanwhile, if you would like to discover Asturias in depth, then it’s best to do your caravan routes with a van or camper van because of the state of some secondary roads.
3. Following Don Quixote’s trail
We leave the coastal landscapes behind to enter the most castiza Spain. We arrive in Castilla-La Mancha. There, we will see a scenery dominated by mills, plains and plateaus. And everything around us will remind us of the famous novel. Some of the essential routes to visit if you decide to do one of these caravan routes are the following:
- Campo de Criptana where Don Quixote faced the giants
- Mota del Cuervo and its the lagoons
- Belmonte and its castle
- Riópar where the river Mundo is born
- San Clemente
- Toboso which is also known as Dulcinea’s home
4. The Costa Blanca and its light
Year after year, the Costa Blanca is the place most Spaniards choose to enjoy their holidays. The good weather, the beach and the large number of activities offered by this destination make caravan routes through this province suitable for all tastes and audiences. Jávea, Guadalest, Torrevieja, Alicante, Santa Pola, Denia, Calpe or Benidorm are just some of the coastal towns of Alicante that you will discover with your caravan. In addition, the province has a great tradition of caravans and campsites. So you will be able to stop with your caravan wherever you choose and enjoy a few days of well-deserved relax.
