This is "Rufina" the van. A Ford Transit 2.5D from 1997. She is a strong and healthy van. So far I've been driving her as my day to day car, and she never let me down. Her first experience abroad was a road trip to Seville and then the south of Portugal. She is awesomely stealth and didn't cause any trouble.

Extra Road Assistance* included in the price.
* The difference is: A mechanic goes to your location In case of a breakdown instead of the need to get the van to a garage. Only in case of severe damage, then there's no chance, and the van needs to go to a garage to be fixed. Otherwise, it's fixed right there.

Inside "Rufina" you will have everything to enjoy the road trip instead of little things that could take your time. Get to know Portugal in a van.

Unless you want to take care of these items, you won't have to worry about:
LED Lights,
Stove,
Sink,
Table (interior),
Seats,
A little mirror,
Kitchen utensils,
Shampoo,
Shower Gel,
Basic spices,
Toilet paper,
Kitchen paper,
Shower bag,
A portable cooler,
Outside Table and chairs.

Extras (price for the whole trip):
Wi-Fi (€15) [Portable. You can take it with you everywhere and there's no need to use mobile data];

Tell me what you need, and we are going to find a solution. The main goal here is you and your road trip!

Experience living in a van, and the concept of van life in Portugal.

Guest access
Inside the van, you can use everything that is available. You have a space for storage under the bed, an area to cook and eat, to write on your computer (ask for WIFI if you need it), watch a movie, or do whatever you want. The good thing about having a van is the freedom you'll have! There are some tips and tricks but I will tell you everything you need to enjoy your trip to the fullest!

Other things to note
To make the process of getting to know the van easier, I'll pick you up from your place or Airport, and then, in the end, I'll take you to the airport, or somewhere else. Tell me the time of your arrival, or where you will be before your trip ;)

You'll have access to a book with all the campsites in Portugal. It will help a lot when you want to have a nice hot shower! I can also help if you have doubts about your route.

If you want to get a High Way Portugal offers you several options to get straight where you want. Rufina is equipped with "Via Verde" which means that you don't have to stop in toll booths (send me a message for more information). If you want to avoid tolls, then the right thing to do is driving the national roads and get to know Portugal inside out. It's advantageous in fuel consumptions, the landscape you'll see and you have the freedom to stop anywhere.

Portugal is an amazing country with a lot to see and good weather almost the entire year.

Either a Road Trip or a Surf Trip, you can't go wrong with Rufina.

Let me know what you want to do and you can be certain that I'll do whatever I can to give you the best I can.

Hi, I’m João and my main goal is to help you make the most out of your adventure. I'm passionate about dreams that do come true. I do all that I can to help you have a different experience, and maybe help you make your dream come true. Exploring Portugal in a van can be one of them. The freedom allowed, the connection with others parked near you (that sometimes actually live in their vans). The stories you'll hear and tell. The culture of sharing, not only what I know and share with you, but also what you can share during the trip. There are so many things you can do, see, feel, and keep in your memory forever. That is the reason why, and that is what I believe in. About what I do: I'm a documentary Filmmaker and I started a project about surf and alternative culture - The Outside Crowd. You can count on me to help you having an experience on the road, and living the van life, for some days.
