Motorhome Stops in Finland

Stopping overnight in a motorhome in Finland will either be on a campsite,among one of the many forests or along the shores of one of Finland’s thousands of lakes. There are 35 National Parks covering 8,150sq.km so there is plenty of space if you want to get away from it all. The outstanding scenery makes a trip to Finland well worth the trip. So long as you follow the simple rule of not leaving litter and leaving the place as you find it then you will be very welcome.

Camping Recipes

This page is dedicated to camping recipes, not just for those in tents or out for the week-end, but these are also perfect for motorhome and caravan owners who don’t want to be eating out all the time whilst away or else living on sandwiches. It is nice to eat out and have someone else do the dishes, of course we all like that, but everyday it gets a bit boring and most of all a bit expensive!
