This trip takes us to an island in the south. That sounds unspectacular at first. But our destination combines mountain landscapes, which invite you to outdoor activities and fascinating views, with paradisiacal coastal landscapes and picturesque regions.

Circumnavigation of the Baltic Sea: Microcamper Summer
Sweden and Norway are beautiful countries to which it is worth travelling. Their varied and picturesque landscapes have something mystical about them and the untouched nature makes you wonder. Fjords and lakes that lie in rugged landscapes, magical valleys surrounded by peaks, wide tundra areas where snow can still be found on the highest points and remote small towns.
The countries of Central Europe are also a desirable destination with their vast areas of untouched nature. We want to explore these enchanting countries and capture as many impressions as possible. From the combination of the states that lie by the sea, we create a tour that takes us around the Baltic Sea in 3 weeks.
Nico Schnee and his dive into Corsica
Actually Sweden was the first planned destination with our converted Land Rover Dirscovery 3, but unfortunately or luckily we met a breeder for French Water Dogs (Barbet) from Switzerland shortly before our departure. Since we have been thinking about adding such a small curly friend to our herd for almost two years, it was clear that we would have to pay Switzerland a visit. Now the way from Central Germany via Switzerland to Sweden is a not to be neglected detour of about 1200 km. So we changed our plans at short notice and drove south via Switzerland to Corsica.
