Experience the joy of driving the original VW campervan. Fortaleza offers the comforts of home on the go and in style. With its sleek, sky blue finishes inside and out this flashy camper is not camera shy.

You probably hear this all the time: 'it's not the destination that matters, but the journey.' From the very first moment you get behind the wheel, you will know, there is nothing quite like cruising in an original VW campervan. The other thing you will probably come to appreciate, is that when you opt for a campervan holiday in Portugal, you pretty much guarantee yourself a beautiful and sunny trip from start to finish. Isn't that what a slow cruising holiday is all about?

Be ready to attract attention along the way. Envious van-lifers will surely throw peace signs on the highway. The drive itself becomes more than transit from A to B. Go slow, with the windows down and with more time to appreciate Portugal's best coastal drives, beaches and charming towns.

When you park for the night, don't be surprised if you happen to spark some new friendships at campsites. Fortaleza sometimes makes it difficult to not be the centre of attention! Want to know what it's like to drive an original VW campervan? Read this first

Please note: Fortaleza is available for pick up and drop off in Faro and NOT allowed outside of Algarve. The colour of your van may be different from the one in the photo.
