Dear Subscribers

Before I tell you about the new guidebooks I feel I should write a paragraph about GDPR.
Overall I believe that GDPR is a good thing. For example, we have mucked out and improved our systems adding several more layers of security. We had to update our newsletter sending program to reach compliance. The improvements include fair tracking features that anonymously record how many receiver reactions there are, i.e. click throughs, unsubscribes and undelivered bounces.
In the unlikely event that you have nothing better to do, you can enjoy reading our Privacy Policy here.

2 Scandinavia Guides 
Our 2003 Scandinavian tour remains the best motorhoming we ever did. Currently the jet stream is high above Iceland and over northern Scandinavia resulting in perfect weather for a northern tour. I urge you to discover the stunning scenery where you have the freedom to camp wild or pitch up at wonderful campsites and farms.

Nordic Camper 2017/18 
We have received new stock just in time for your summer motorhome tour. Although not written in English, this is the best information available about motorhome stopovers across Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Estonia.
