Portugal is one of the best countries to surf in Europe. The waves, the food, the culture, and the cost of living are key factors that bring tourists to this European country every year, including many surfers.
Modernity shares space with its traditional vibe maintaining the Old European charm that enchants many travelers when coming to the 'Old continent'. And being one of the lucky and few countries facing straight into the Atlantic, there is a lot of surf there too.
Peniche, Nazaré, Cascais, and Ericeira are the most famous places to some of the best waves on the European continent. The coastline picks up tons of swell and good weather for most of the year, allowing surfers to score great breaks most of the time while visiting.
Our itineraries are perfect for travelers who want to learn to surf or improve their surf skills, for outdoor and nature lovers, or even for high-performance sports teams and events. We do weekly trips from Sunday to Saturday and park the Truck in 3 different locations along our coast, exploring many different areas according to the forecast.
We have two basic itineraries in Portugal - from April to June, we visit the southwest area, and from July to October, the Northern part of the country. That allows us to take advantage of each season of the year, providing our guests the best experience.
Traveling inside our truck
Breakfast is on board every morning, surrounded by the best nature and with spectacular views. During the day, we guide you to amazing places in Portugal, according to your itinerary, either surfing on different beaches along the coast or exploring the nature and culture of each place we visit. The end of the day is time for relaxation, a warm shower inside the truck, a nice and cold beer, and a delicious barbecue with friends while watching the sunset.
Our truck is a converted Mercedes Actros with a special system that allows the walls and the ceiling to expand, transforming it into an amazing double-decker “hotel on wheels”. We have enough space for a home in our two floors. In the first one, you will find a living room with couches and a table, a projector for movies, a fully equipped kitchen, a toilet and a bathroom. The second floor gives access to our 5 rooms – 4 shared double rooms with a bunk bed, and 1 private double room with a double bed, besides air conditioning and a locker. Outside the entrance there’s a lounge terrace, with bean bags, to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. No matter if you are traveling solo or in a group - our truck creates a super cozy atmosphere and never fails to provide unforgettable moments.
Truck Surf hotel is run by a Portuguese couple, Daniela and Eduardo, who traveled for many years in a campervan through Europe and Africa, exploring different cultures and surf spots. They wanted to create something different to share their lifestyle and offer other travelers the flexibility and comfort to explore different locations and waves to surf - and that's why they created the Truck Surf Hotel. They love the freedom to travel, to explore different surf spots and to park their “home on wheels” in beautiful locations near the ocean, always in connection with the outdoors and also connecting with the local communities and culture from the places they visit.
