Summer is here, and at the Senso4s HQ we are already planning our dream vacations.
Hello, nature, adventures, relaxation and freedom!
Is there anything better than heading into the unknown and exploring hidden treasures of Europe with your RV or a campervan?
Here’s the list of some of the most beautiful offbeat destinations in Europe you can visit with your tiny house on wheels.
9 incredible offbeat destinations in Europe
Soča Valley, Slovenia
Since Senso4s is located in Slovenia, a true hidden gem of Europe, so we have to start with this one!
In the northwestern part of Slovenia, you have to check out the River Soča, one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe, which carved an incredible valley, surrounded by mighty mountain peaks.
Hiking in Tolmin Gorge, visiting famous waterfalls, adrenaline sports in Bovec, various outdoor museums, and incredible views make Soča Valley one of the best road trip destinations!
While the Tuscany region and its vineyard-covered hills are world-famous, not many visit tiny towns of its “northern neighbor” – the Emilia-Romagna region.
Brisighella is one of those charming medieval villages with pastel houses squeezed around the main square and a hilltop fortress that offers incredible 360° views.
It’s perfect for lazy wanderings and a revitalizing espresso after a hearty lunch in your RV.
Endless rolling green hills, sandy coastlines, sheep, and medieval castles make Wales one of the most charming offbeat destinations in Europe.
Small villages dotted along the main roads are a perfect pit-stop for a beer or two and a chat with humble and friendly locals. Caerphilly and Cardiff castles, Snowdonia National Park, and Tintern Abbey are just a few of the top-rated attractions in Wales!
Tara River Canyon, Montenegro
If you’re looking for a true hidden gem, Tara River Canyon might be the right destination for you.
An incredible drive that takes you along the canyon will serve with outstanding views of the river and mighty cliffs. The Tara River itself is known for white-water rafting adventures, while numerous hiking options will fill up the rest of your days in no time.
It’s the perfect summer road trip destination!
Lofoten Islands, Norway
Lofoten Islands in Norway might be among more popular places, but due to their remoteness, serenity is rest assured.
Arctic fjords, extraordinary views, and a chance to see northern lights are some of the reasons why the Lofoten Islands are one of the best offbeat destinations in Europe.
Whether you’re into hiking or simply enjoy relaxing in nature, this destination is well worth adding to your bucket list.
Worried you might run out of gas just as you stop at a scenic spot to make your lunch?
We’ve got you covered. Our Senso4s Plus product will monitor gas levels instead of you, create a consumption prediction and make your journey carefree.
Bavaria & Lake Obersee, Germany
Germany is full of hidden gems, and emerald green glacial Lake Obersee near the Austrian border is undoubtedly one of them.
While you won’t be able to visit this lake with your vehicle, a boat ride and a short hike will reward you with scenic views.
Transylvania & Transfagarasan Highway, Romania
For many offbeat destinations in Europe, it’s best to head east. We bet you’ve heard of count Dracula, haven’t you? While many tourists head straight to the Bram Castle, which served as a setting for the famous novel, Transylvania can offer way more.
Scenic roads, small rural towns, and unique culture make this Romanian region one of the ultimate non-touristy destinations in Europe.
And if you’re visiting in the summer, make sure you drive along the country’s most spectacular road – Transfagarasan mountain road, which lies further south.
If you’re one of those who feel like Venice is simply overcrowded, a charming alternative is waiting for you in the northeastern Dutch province. Giethoorn, sometimes also called “small Venice of the North”, is an idyllic village without cars.
Signature cottages with thatched roofs, surrounded by a vast labyrinth of canals and wooden bridges, are truly postcard-worthy. Giethorn should certainly not be visited without a camera!
This European micro country tucked between Switzerland and Austria is often overlooked by tourists, making it an excellent offbeat destination.
With its Alpine scenery, a medieval castle, and small towns, it’s almost fairytale-like.
While it might be tiny, you won’t be bored. Hiking, exploring a small capital, sipping wine from a prince’s vineyard, or simply unwinding are one of the highlights of visiting Liechtenstein.
We hope we’ve given you a few ideas for your next road trip!
