Surfers or road trippers alike looking for a luxury stay on the road need look no further than Truck Surf Hotel – a fully equipped converted Mercedes Actros truck.
This double-decker truck has been outfitted with a cosy living room, kitchen, and bathroom – complete with a toilet and shower – as well as five bedrooms.
From June to October, guests can travel throughout Portugal taking in surf and cultural trips, while North Africa’s Morocco is the truck’s home base from December to March.
Truck Surf Hotel was founded by surfers and environmental stewards, Daniela Carneiro and Eduardo Ribeiro, who had been travelling for many years in a camper van through Europe and Africa before deciding to create a similar experience for other people to share.
They said: “We wanted to create something different to share this lifestyle and offer people the flexibility to travel with comfort and the best outdoor experiences. So we created the Truck Surf Hotel that gives the opportunity to explore uncrowded surf spots with the best waves, different natural parks and mountains, live different cultures with a luxurious hotel on wheels that goes everywhere.
“Our commitment to the local culture and environment spreads with us to our destinations. This project is all about sharing travel experiences, making new friends and connecting with each other, combining surf, nature and adventure in a new way of traveling.”
Truck Surf Hotel is perfect for travelers who want to learn how to surf or improve their surf skills, and for adventurers that enjoy outdoor activities in nature.
