1. Follow the Nibelungs through Germany
The Rheinische Sagenweg is one of Germany's most spectacular tourist routes. It follows the Rhine river, traversing around 580 km between Dusseldorf and Mainz. The almost melodramatic natural scenery, such as the Lorelei and the Laacher See lake, have inspired many artists’ tales and legends, and these places haven’t lost any of their mystical charms over the centuries. With around 100 sightseeing attractions across nearly 50 different places, you’ll be whisked away on a trip through history.

2. Atop Italy’s Peak
The Passa dello Stelvio (or Stelvio Pass) is Italy’s highest paved mountain pass. It connects the South Tyrolean town of Bormio in Lombardy with the municipality of Prato allo Stelvio. This route is one of the most impressive scenic mountain roads in the Alps: In addition to the beautiful mountainscape, the Piz de las Trais Linguas (“peak of the three languages”) and the roaring Saènt waterfall, there are numerous challenging curves that passionate motorhome drivers are sure to love.

3. Over French Mountains and Past Palm Trees
The most famous French motorway connects Thonon-les-Bains on Lake Geneva with Menton on the French Riviera. The Route des Grandes Alpes traverses 16 alpine passes and ascends about 16,000 metres until finally, after about 700 km, you arrive at your final destination on the sunny Mediterranean coast. Some of the highest peaks in the Alps are part of this route’s imposing mountainscape, including Col de l’Iseran, which stands at an impressive 2,764 metres tall. Depending on the season, you can even watch the Tour de France cyclists from your motorhome.

4. A Trip Across Northern Europe
One of the oldest scenic routes in Scandinavia, the King’s Road has always been Northern Europe’s most important east-west connection. From the Norwegian mountains all the way to Saint Petersburg, Russia, this route travels via Oslo, Stockholm, the Swedish Åland islands and the Finnish capital of Helsinki. Thanks to the variety in scenery — from the capital cities to the diverse landscapes — you’ll never get tired of travelling along the route’s nearly 1,450 km long Scandinavian section.

5. Iceland: Under the Northern Lights
You can drive around all of Iceland in about 14 hours via the Ring Road, but if you take your time travelling the 1,300 km route and make plenty of stops along the way, you’ll discover the most impressive sightseeing attractions that Iceland has to offer. Numerous spectacles of nature, like the roaring waterfalls Gullfoss and Seljalandsfoss, and the capital city, Reykjavik, await you here. In the months around the solstice, particularly along more rural sections of the route, you may even get to see the colourful Northern Lights dancing in the sky.

6. Spain’s Street of White Villages
The Ruta de los Pueblos Blancos crosses the Andalusian mountains from Arcos de la Frontera via the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park and the municipality of Zahara de la Sierra. This circular route leads you through about 30 snow-white villages with an Arabian style of architecture, nestled in the mountains amid lush greenery and gnarled olive trees. The Pueblos, like Benaocaz, for example, tell the stories of their Moorish builders and give visitors a glimpse of ancient Spain.

7. Following the Path of Empress Elisabeth of Austria
One of Central Europe’s most majestic routes, the Straße der Kaiser und Könige (The Route of Emperors and Kings) connects medieval Regensburg in Germany to the Hungarian spa town of Budapest. Unlike those travelling by boat, when you travel by motorhome, you’ve got the advantage of being able to stop anywhere along the Danube river. In addition to seeing cultural highlights like Passau, Linz, Vienna and Bratislava, you should make sure your itinerary includes long walks through the river valley’s gorgeous landscapes.

8. The Croatian Pearl of the Adriatic Sea
The Croatian Adriatic Highway from Opatija to Dubrovnik is a mountainous coastal path. With medieval cities, like Zagreb and Split, and the Plitvice Lakes National Park along the route, you have plenty of opportunities to take long breaks. With the mountains on your left, the azure-blue Mediterranean Sea on your right and countless curves, motorhome drivers will have a great time driving this route.

9. A Tour of Ireland’s Coast
Covering more than 2,500 km from Derry in the north to Kinsale in the south, the Wild Atlantic Way is one of the world’s longest designated coastal roads. Ireland’s shores greet you with steep cliffs and narrow roads that wind their way through the green scenery. Formed by the awesome power of the Atlantic Ocean, bays like Ashleam Bay or Malin Beg are always worth a detour. Feeling adventurous? We dare you to take a dip in the icy Atlantic waters!

10. Through the Highlands
The West Highland Way is one of the first long-distance paths to cross the Scottish mountainscape, and it is a dream for all walkers and hikers. But you don’t have to be on foot to make your highland dreams come true: From Glasgow, you can drive your motorhome north to Fort William (about 180 km) via the A 82 motorway. The road passes by shaggy sheep and the legendary Loch Lomond, and it takes you through the famous Glen Coe.
