Previously on this website, we’ve given you an abundance of tips for planning a nude European road trip. In that blog post we briefly talked about the different European countries and their naturist options. If all of that wasn’t enough inspiration yet, today we’ll present to you some epic nude European road trips. Covering some of the most beautiful places in Europe and of course some of the best places to get naked.
Previously published Naturist road trip examples
In the past, we’ve already published reports of some of the nude road trips we’ve taken through parts of Europe. It would be a bit crazy (or lazy) to just repeat those once again. Just follow the links to get to the original posts:
Nude Through Italy: This road trip takes you from the north of Italy, past the Mediterranean nude beaches and Rome, all the way to the very south of Puglia.
Nude Through the south-west of France: Starting from the wonderful Dordogne region, we travel south towards the foot of the Pyrenees mountains and follow the Mediterranean coast towards the famous nude village Cap d’Agde.
Nude Through the south-east of France: We leave from the French Riviera, going into the mountains of the Gorges du Verdon towards the Mont Ventoux peak. From there we discover the naturist resorts in the Gard region, ending up in the most exclusive naturist resort of Europe.
Nude Through Portugal: Leaving from the hilly north of Portugal we travel through the desolated Alentejo region, visiting the nude beaches of Lisbon along the way and ending up at the amazing Algarve in the very south of the country.
Important to mention here is that the above examples focus for 100% on naturism, skipping many of the tourist spots. The next examples will rather be a mix of exploring European naturism and the many other highlights of the continent as well.
