Our group trips in electric campervans

When you were young, you were a fan of summer camps and group trips. You pushed, pushed, pushed, until at 18, you thought you were too old to continue. That the past is the past… But not so fast!

The Family Van, an expert in electric campervan rental, now offers itinerant surftrips in group aboard 100% electric campervans, centered around sports or cultural themes.

Let’s take a closer look at this alternative to traditional campervan travel that makes us want to go back to summer camp, but for adults.

A sports or cultural theme at the heart of the trip

All group trips with The Family Van are organized around a sports or cultural theme, led by a certified guide throughout the entire trip. Whether it’s surfing, hiking, visiting castles in the Loire Valley, or wine tasting, there’s something for everyone.

The goal is to promote French heritage through an innovative trip that combines human encounters with the practice of an activity.

The Family Van aims to develop as many themes as possible based on the desires of its users and those who want to try renting a van with them.

Traveling group stays in 100% electric vans

All group trips with The Family Van are operated aboard 100% electric Citroën vans, fitted out to provide maximum comfort for travelers eager to test the experience.

“Our goal is to rethink the experience of traditional van travel, making it more responsible and innovative,” says Kevin, CEO & co-founder of the company.

The electric van allows for a new way of traveling, slower and closer to the outdoor desires of travelers. The aim is to break away from traditional travel modes and opt for slow-travel, taking the time to appreciate the surrounding landscapes and meet new people.

A summer camp for adults

What better way to relive your childhood memories while preserving the planet than a group trip in an electric van?

The Family Van is like an adult summer camp reinvented for an itinerant trip aboard electric vans, with a group of people bonding together through activities, encounters, and landscape discoveries.

Discovering the Nouvelle Aquitaine region for a weekend

A long weekend is the break everyone needs to recharge, think about something else for a few days, and decompress.

Between Landes, Gironde, and Pays-Basque, we can assure you that there is no shortage of things to do in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. The Family Van allows you to rediscover this region during a 5-day itinerant surf camp in June.

An Itinerant surf camp for a long weekend ... in an electric van!

The Family Van surf camp has two unique features: it is itinerant and uses electric vans.

The company’s concept is to reimagine the summer camp experience that we all enjoyed as children and adapt it for adults. Who says we can’t have fun past the age of 18? By reserving your itinerant surf camp aboard our electric vans, you can travel responsibly while meeting new people and indulging in the practice of surfing

Daily surf lessons

The goal of a surf camp is to progress in surfing while having a good time.

At The Family Van, all of our itinerant surf camps include van rental, surf equipment (wetsuit, board, and wax), and surf lessons with a certified local guide. Depending on the level of the participants, the guide will determine skill-level groups during the stay.

Optimized recharges with the electric van

In addition to the carefully selected campsites that will allow you to recharge overnight, the route proposed for this 5-day surfcamp has been designed in such a way that you won’t need to recharge during the day.

From summer camp to surf camp, let us take you on a journey!

Summer 2001, you still remember the campfire organized by Céline, the counselor who supervised your summer camp that year. Campfires, big games, lots of friends, and an incomparable nostalgia at the end of those 2 weeks during which your parents said, “but how great are summer camps!”

But 20 years later, that nostalgia is still present and you have only one dream: to find the carefree spirit you had at summer camp, recharge your batteries, and meet new people around a common passion: surfing!

Perfect, you’re in the right place with The Family Surf trip, the only itinerant surf camp in France and in Spain

The surf camp, an unusual stay around a passion: surfing and the ocean.

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or experienced surfer, a surf camp is the perfect stay to combine discovery, practice, relaxation, and meeting new people in an ideal setting.

Generally all-inclusive, it is located near renowned surf spots and is led by teachers who can usually adapt to the different levels of the participants.

To summarize: a house on a specific spot, 10 to 15 people, daily surf lessons, and additional activities planned most of the time: yoga, hiking, balanced meals… All in an atmosphere centered around well-being and the practice of a sports activity. Today, many surf camps have managed to develop all over Europe and even in the world: France, Portugal, Spain, there is something for everyone.

However, one of them seems to stand out: The Family Surf. Let’s take a closer look at an exceptional itinerant surf camp.

The Family Surf : the surfcamp 2.0

The Family Surf is a surf camp that combines road trips, surfing, the Nouvelle Aquitaine region, and… an electric van! Unlike a traditional surf camp where a group of people practices surfing while being based in the same place for a whole week, The Family Surf offers an itinerant surf camp aboard an electric van. Their goal is to offer an alternative to traditional van travel, focused on a more responsible and innovative travel model.

This one-week expedition themed around surfing brings together enthusiasts and beginners on a circuit that travels through the Nouvelle Aquitaine region: Biscarrosse, Montalivet, Hossegor, the Médoc coast, and the Basque Country are just some of the planned stops on the itinerary.

So, if you have a free week in the coming months and have no idea what to plan… We have the solution! Discover Vanlife Mag’s article on The Family Surf, the itinerant surf camp in France.
