Experience the joy of driving the original VW camper van. Our stunning 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 time you get behind the wheel of this van, you will know, there is nothing quite cruising in an original Volkswagen camper van. The other thing you will probably come to appreciate, is that when you hire your camper van in Portugal, you pretty much guarantee yourself a beautiful and sunny holiday. No more weather related stress! Isn't that what a slow cruising holiday is all about?

Be ready 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 and charming towns.

Finally, don't be surprised if you happen to spark some new friendships at campsites. Fortaleza sometimes makes it difficult not to be the centre of attention. Prepare for the drive of your life. Want to know what it's like to drive the original VW camper van? Read this first
