Traveling by motorhome: the best tips for enjoying Portugal

Traveling by motorhome is undoubtedly one of the ways to explore the wonders of Portugal in a practical, comfortable and flexible way.

Portugal has incomparable natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage, making it an unforgettable experience for motorhome enthusiasts.

Tip 1: Plan your itinerary in advance
Portugal is a country full of hidden treasures, from the sublime beaches of the Algarve to the cliffs of the west coast and the charming villages of the Alentejo. 
Before you set off on your motorhome trip, do some detailed research and plan your itinerary in advance. This way, you can make sure you don't miss any must-see attractions and optimize your time.

If you're coming from the north, Campigir suggests starting your journey at the beaches of Matosinhos and ending it at the border with southern Spain.
If you're starting from the south, we suggest you visit the Algarve, Vicentina and Alentejo coasts and head to the west of Portugal.

Tip 2: Choose strategic campsites
When traveling by motorhome, choosing the right campsite is crucial. Opt for parks that offer modern amenities, strategic locations and, of course, a welcoming atmosphere. 
At Campigir you'll find a variety of campsites that offer an authentic experience, with stunning views and easy access to tourist attractions. You can find us in São Pedro de Moel, Peniche, with Urban Art Camping, Sesimbra, at Campimeco and Valbom, and in São Torpes, at Natura Art Camping.

Tip 3: Explore the delicious local cuisine
Portuguese cuisine is famous for its richness and authentic flavor. Take the opportunity to sample local delicacies in markets, traditional restaurants and even by preparing meals in your motorhome. Be sure to try dishes such as Caldeira de Peixe in Sesimbra and Peniche, Sopa do Mar in São Pedro de Moel, Arroz de Caramujos, Lapas, Mexilhão or Marisco in São Torpes, Pastéis de Nata in Lisbon and the famous Port Wine.

Tip 4: Respect nature and the environment
Portugal is blessed with stunning natural beauty, and it's everyone's responsibility to preserve it. When traveling by motorhome, make sure you follow proper environmental practices. Dispose of waste correctly, save water and avoid disturbing the local fauna. By respecting nature, we help ensure that future generations can also enjoy these magnificent landscapes.

Tip 5: Be open to new experiences
One of the greatest advantages of traveling by motorhome is the freedom to discover unplanned places. Be open to new experiences, allow yourself to deviate from the itinerary and explore small villages, hidden beaches and stunning landscapes that can surprise you at every turn in the road.

Traveling by motorhome in Portugal is an adventure that combines the freedom of the road with the cultural and natural richness of this country. By following these tips, you'll be prepared for a memorable journey, creating memories that will last forever.
