Motorhome Tours visited Poland in September 2021 and we wanted to share our experience of Poland with you.
This was our first time to Poland on a Motorhome Tour which we were all excited to visit, well it didn’t disappoint and far exceeded our expectations.
We visited Poznan, Torun, Kraków and Wrocław with each being a stunning as each other. The city centres are of an architectural style that are equally matched as they are stunning and all offer something different.
Torun is a stunning city with beautiful walks and cobbled streets to explore which also has the Vistula River running adjacent to the town. We visited the planetarium, cathedral and baked a gingerbread!
Kraków was a great base with the campsite a short distance to the city centre where we had a tour of the Old Town, Jewish Quarters and the Wawel Cathedral area by electric buggy. Kraków was also the base for visiting Auschwitz.
With the number of Covid cases rising in Spain, Portugal and entering into Southern France we have real concerns on recommending escorted tours to this region right now.
We have not taken this decision lightly but it is with regret that we have been forced to postpone our France/Spain tour in September 2021 and our Spain/Portugal tour in late September into October 2021.
We have informed all our clients and have offered the following:
opportunity to swap to tours in 2022
or we have introduced a Brand New type of tour that we call Flexi Tours!
Flexi Tours is a simple brand new idea that you choose when you start and end a tour and choose for how many nights you want to be on a tour.
Short Notice – simple
Short notice is not a problem, flexible nights and start dates is no problem and extending the tour at short notice is no problem either… It really does give you the power to choose how you like to travel.
When does Flexi Tour start?
Our first Flexi Tour starts on 18th August until 31st October 2021 and is brilliant if you are looking for a window of opportunity to go on an Escorted Motorhome Tour in late 2021.
We are touring Germany and Poland only due to restrictions on all surrounding countries for UK citizens, but Germany and Poland are fully open to UK citizens.
Germany and Poland also have terrifically low cases and if you see the colour map below its an obvious choice for travel in Europe right now.
Germany and Poland are in the Green which is the East side of Europe versus the Dark Red of Spain and Red of Portugal and Southern France.
The Data of number of cases backs this up with incredibly low numbers in Germany and Poland.
Germany and Poland are also allowing fully vaccinated UK citizens entry for any reason to their countries.
The Data for the last 14 day case notification rate per 100,000 – France 269.31 Spain 783.67 Portugal 436.22 compared with the low figures of Germany 24.49 and Poland 3.57.
Germany and Poland and our Flexi Tours really is a great combination and a huge window of opportunity to travel in your motorhome on a fun and social escorted tour.

It is fine to travel to France, Spain and Portugal without isolation on arrival as long as you have received 2 vaccination jabs. Whilst currently you require isolation on return to the UK, we fully expect this to be lifted very soon and before the end date of these tours.
So why don’t you treat yourself to a holiday that you may have thought was not possible! We have spaces for both these tours and maybe you might just fancy joining us on these two tours back to back, September and October 2021 in the sun anyone?
Motorhome Tours offer fully escorted tours to European destinations for small groups travelling in their own or a hired motorhome.
The benefit of travelling in an escorted motorhome tour can be huge and can offer a relaxing and safe environment to explore new destinations in Europe with like minded people that can be very beneficial for our mental health.
There are many motorhome owners that haven’t taken their motorhome abroad before and have limited themselves to the UK as they don’t have the confidence to travel abroad. We have clients that are single and enjoy the fact they have company and security of travelling in a group. Some just like the fact its fully organised and a great way to travel to destinations that you might not normally travel to with the camaraderie of touring in a small group.
