On this trip we'll cruise along the southern coast between Kristiansand and Stavanger. We'll kayak between hundreds of islands, hike up to unknown and quiet but beautiful trails, from where we look out over the impressive Lysefjord and tour by bike along the beautiful coast, scattered with lighthouses, also, we'll jump on a sailboat to see the beautiful coast from Norway from the seaside!

And of course..we'll take the time to relax & build bonfires as well!


The Bus

Aside from the most unique form of transportation, the bus is also your accommodation on wheels! It will be your home away from home for the next 8 days. Fully equipped with a big lounge, kitchen, 9 comfy beds, heating, bathroom,  and of course.. a fire pit!

Of course part of the fun is to be driving around in our ancient bus, transformed from an old public transportation bus into a comfortable hostel on the move. We’ll be on a roadtrip together to discover the beautiful Norway. Sitting upstairs you'll almost have a 360-degrees view!

You’ll have your own bed, with curtains to provide some privacy and your own little reading light. Upstairs you’ll also find the lounge with a view, while downstairs is the living area, with kitchen, bathroom and dining area. 

Both areas have what we call in Dutch ‘ARKO’ (Alle Ramen Kunnen Open’) and a heating system for the colder nights.

We were taken good care of. We've seen a lot of Scotland's nature and loved all the activities. My personal favorite was conyoning. That was awesome, even in the cold. Highly recommend anyone try a trip on this amazing bus!

De reis met LaKaravana door de Schotse Hooglanden was geweldig. De reisleiding (Eileen en Saskia) is altijd vrolijk, actief en gastvrij. Ben je actief en wil je Schotland (of een van de andere bestemmingen) anders beleven dan met alle andere organisatoren is dit echt een aanrader. Buiten de gebaande paden, veel lachen, ook voor alleengaanden perfect.

Ik heb een waanzinnige tijd gehad. Veel van Schotland kunnen ontdekken met de meiden van La Karavana. Reizen met zo’n oude bus is een unieke ervaring en geeft je een waanzinnig gevoel. De bus is van alle faciliteiten voorzien. Ook de medereizigers waren erg gezellig! Wij waren op pad met 5 reizigers en 2 begeleiders. Persoonlijk vond ik dit ook wel prettig, want het was nu in het slaapvertrek best wel rommelig en druk. Bij een volledige volzet is dit misschien nog iets ‘erger’. De activiteiten waren leuk en veelzijdig, al moet ik zeggen dat ik één kasteel bezoeken wel voldoende had gevonden. Daarnaast zijn de meiden wél flexibel en denken ze graag mee over de wensen van de groep. Zo konden we iets langer op Isle of Sky verblijven. Het mountainbiken in Trossachs National Park hebben we niet gedaan, daarover is ook niet gecommuniceerd. Ook de Harry Potter trein kon niet doorgaan, als alternatief zijn we met de gewone trein gegaan. Voorafgaand is hier wél over gecommuniceerd. Het eten dat elke avond geserveerd werd was lekker en gevarieerd. De lunches waren elke middag verrassend en in de ochtend hadden we regelmatig iets extra’s, zoals wentelteefjes, een gebakken ei of verse croissants. Al met al; het was een feestje om met de bus op pad te zijn geweest.

The trip with La Karavana to Scotland was great. Eileen and Jolisa organised cookes en drive the bus very well.
