/ Best alpine destination by campervan?
Thanks for all your help so far... On final quesstion.... I've managed to blag a campervan off a friend and was planning to go to Zermatt but figure that might not be the best call with wheels...
What do folk think? Where would be the best place be to go (drivin from uk) for easyish 4000m tops (wife's first trip - up to about PD) and some cragging and chillin...
Thanks for your thoughts!!
Arolla? There was campervans in the campsite we stayed at and a friend drove from UK.
You have wheels. You can go anywhere! You can follow the weather!
Saas, The Bernina, Grindelwald (If you can afford the train to access the Jungfraujoch)
There's a very pleasant site at Randa : http://www.restaurant-holeinone.ch/fr/acceuil/acceuil.html
Looks a bit posher than when I was last there ( 2000 ). Pleasant owner, I even got a free meal and beers to celebrate my solo climb of the Matterhorn- happy days !
We use the aire de service camping car. You can get a guide. but cheap cheerful go anywhere.
Also use laybys and forest roads.. never had any problems and left the van there a few days.
