Van rental in Sanatnder

Each of our restored classic vans is literally a small-space-wonder - it's like a car in the city and in nature a tiny house on four wheels.

Arnía Beach Cantabria

Northern Spain is the region of strong contrasts: blue ocean, green hills and to the West the stunning alpine landscape of the 'Picos de Europa'. A diversified coastline awaits you, with its lonely bays, rocky cliffs and wide river mouths.

Arnía Beach Cantabria

Everything is possible here. Enjoy going hiking, rock climbing, rafting, canoeing, snowboarding and surfing in one day and that in a region with constant waves. Furthermore, Santander offers an attractive culture program and a wide variety of food. What more can be said than Cantabria being elected second best destination in Europe in 2018 (Lonely Planet) .

Surf and Lifestyle Atlantic

The coastline offers 300 km, which you can discover literally all year long and in no time you can be in Asturias or the Basque Country. We would be happy to help you out with deciding what to do with such a huge diversity.

A long the coast of northern Spain you can find hidden bays and mile long beaches. Near the town of Liencres the beach of Valdearenas is more attractive for advanced surfers due to it picking up more swell, but thanks to the long sand beaches of San Vicente de la Barquera and Somo, beginners as well will be able to enjoy their surf sessions. Stay updated and check out the surf forecast for the region.

Our VW vans

Our fleet of vans VW T3

Our authentic Volkswagen T3 vans are proper old-timers and given their age, in very good condition. However, a 30-year-old car behaves a bit differently to a new car. Everyone should be aware of that and treat them with as much appreciation as we do.

Rent your tiny house on wheels and start your roadtrip

Before you take over your van we have checked it closely with expertise. However, should a problem occur during your road trip, we'll be there for you 24 hours and do our best possible to eliminate every failure instantly.

The Salty Campers

Rent a Camper van with the team of Salty Campers

We are Team Lenny and two proper van girls. If we're not on the road with our vans to go surfing, we're in the garage working on them. The best alarm in the morning is the familiar knocking on the van door, followed by: Let's go surf? Yeah sure!
Before jumping into the sea, a quick coffee, enjoying the view of the sea and mountains, then slipping into our wetsuits and off we go.

It's exactly this feeling we want to share with you.
Think it.
Feel it.
Do it.

Surf and beach holidays in one of our our Salty Campers

Spain became our new home and the passion for the vans and surfing unites us. For many years now, we don't only share this enthusiasm, but also our work.

When Linda isn't surfing, as a qualified motor mechanic and VW T3 specialist, she takes care of the fleet. Jenny, as a graduate of tourism, loves all board sports. In her free time, you either find her in the water or on the piste. As a communication wonder she handles all customer contact and all organizational matters.

That is why Salty Campers isn't just any business for us. We rent out vans because we want to share this way of living with you. The only thing that counts is you having an untroubled time and that you can enjoy your vacation to the full extent. If you are looking for the perfect combination of deceleration, adventure and freedom, then a road trip in a VW van is just the ticket. So what are you waiting for?

Picture of a happy client


"It was the first time for me to travel in a classic van and to be honest to start with I was a bit uncertain if I will get on well with a T3. But thanks to the great introduction by the girls my insecurity vanished before I left the grounds and at the end of the vacation I almost couldn't let go of “my” campervan anymore. The journey recommendations of the crew were worth a great deal. In short: great camper, super service and an unforgettable vacation. I'll definitely be back!"

Picture of a happy client


"We had a great experience with the Salty Camper! A big thanks goes to the team, which has taken great care of us from start to finish. In addition to the well-equipped campervans, there were also valuable tips on the beaches and the region. And not to forget the unbeatable T3 feeling ;) We will be back!"
