‘Tis the season to be jolly, and what better way to celebrate Christmas than being snug, cosy and on the road in a campervan?
If you’re thinking about taking the plunge and going on a trip in the camper this Christmas, take a look at the following tips on how to get it right!
Rather than throwing everything into the back of a camper for an impromptu trip away on Christmas Eve, do the sensible thing and plan ahead.
Avoid the disappointment of arriving at a campsite only to find it’s fully booked (you may be surprised at how many people go camping at Christmas) by booking in advance.
Plan where you’re heading, what you’re taking and where you will be staying to ensure your festive voyage in the camper goes as smoothly as possible.
Want a white Christmas? Head north!
If you dream of waking up in the campervan with the family on Christmas Day surrounded by snow, then you’ve got more chance of having a white Christmas if you head north, into Scotland if you can.
Scotland is home to beautiful landscapes carpeted in Scots pine, which look especially stunning when sprinkled with snow.
Take plenty of supplies
You can guarantee your journey into the wilderness at Christmas will be cold, so take plenty of supplies. Don’t hold back in packing plenty of warm jumpers, coats, hats, scarves, gloves, wellies and thermals for all the family, after all, the beauty of campervanning is that you can ‘over’ pack!
Take other ‘essentials,’ including a torch, spare batteries and plenty to eat and drink, in case you can’t find anywhere that’s open.
Deck the camper out in Christmas decorations
Ensure your trip away feels cosy and festive by decking the campervan out in fairy lights, tinsel and even a small Christmas tree.
