The weather starts to get warmer, so it's time to take a road trip in your very own Spaceship! Here are 5 amazing road trips in Spring for you.
1. Snowdonia, North Wales
Accessible from all our depots, Snowdonia offers spectacular scenery and activities. Climb Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa in Welsh) – the highest mountain in Wales and England. Easily accessible via the dramatic Llanberis pass and rising above Llanberis, Snowdon is a range of peaks with breathtaking views. You can see Snowdonia, Anglesey, Pembrokeshire and Ireland on a good day.

The Game of Thrones Touring Exhibition is based at The TEC Belfast. Discover Westeros and the lands beyond, then head off on your own GOT Tour. The forests, mountains and moorlands around Northern Ireland transformed into the scenic backdrops for some of Game of Thrones’ most memorable moments. You'll recognise the places where Sansa and Littlefinger travelled to the Eyrie. On the coastal route, you'll discover the locations of Dorne and the Summer Sea.

While you’re there, take in Titanic Belfast, the 2016 World’s Leading Tourist Attraction and take the kids to a Surf Camp at Portrush. Golfers, make sure you book a round at Royal Portrush, the spectacular setting of the last Open Golf tournament.
3. Ben Nevis, Loch Ness & The Cairngorms
Head north from our Edinburgh depot to experience breathtaking Scotland. If the weather’s good, climb Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. Travel north-west and look out for the Loch Ness monster before heading into the Cairngorms National Park. It’s the largest National Park in The British Isles. Follow the trails around Tolmount with its epic scenery and diverse nature, or enjoy some spring sunshine on the shores of Loch Morlich.

If you’ve got any energy left after all that walking, call in at Craggon Outdoors for zip-wires, white water rafting, archery and much more!
4. Explore our National Parks

Spring is the perfect time to see nature busting into life. Whether it's the landscape of fields and forests or nesting birds and spring lambs, there's always something to discover. The National Parks are perfect for a campervan hire break. Get out of the city to see up to 2,000 stars in the night sky - find out more about star gazing in our Dark Skies here.
5. Paris in the Spring
Drive onto a ferry or take Eurotunnel across the channel. Depending on which route you take, Paris is between 320 and 340 miles away, about an 8-hour trip. You could take in the historic city Rouen, the capital of Normandy on your route.
Check out this campsite near Versailles – it’s a great base to explore Paris. See the sights like the Eiffel Tower, L’Arc de Triomphe, The Louvre and take a Bateaux Mouches cruise on the River Seine.
