We can't recommend motorhoming in Spain more highly. To escape to a sunny climate, to visit one of the beaches along the 4,964 kilometres of coastline or to experience the culture in beautiful cities such as Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid and Malaga. Find a place at one of the many motorhome sites and start exploring. Visit buildings by artists like Gaudí and Dalí, hike through the mountains of northern Spain and enjoy Spanish dishes such as paella, tapas or pinchos all day long. A post-lunch dip? Feel free to give in and take part in a tradition that is still common in Spain: The Siesta. Sounds great, right? What are you waiting for? Start planning your motorhome trip to Spain. Read the information below before you go, and you will be well prepared on your way. No time right now?
Looking for a motorhome site in Spain? Use our Campercontact app for motorhome locations in Spain. Staying overnight in parking areas next to the motorway is permitted, unless there is a sign prohibiting this. The rules about wild camping in Spain are unclear. Policies vary from region to region and enforcement also differs. It is certainly not allowed in national parks. However, what is allowed is an overnight stay along freeways and specially designated parking areas for motorhomes and on campsites. You can easily find these locations on Camper Contact.

Spain has a number of low emission zones, including in Barcelona and Madrid.
Low emission zone in Barcelona
In Barcelona, the low emission zones are in force on weekdays between 7.00 and 20.00. The Barcelona ring road is excluded from the low emission zone. Vehicles not registered in Spain must register to enter the low emission zone. Diesel motorhomes with an emission class of Euro 4 or higher and motorhomes with an emission class of Euro 3 or higher are eligible to register for a two-year period. Motorhomes that do not meet the requirements can register for €5, after which it is possible to apply for an exemption up to 10 times a year for a fee of €2 per day (prices in 2020 and 2021).
