The Spanish city of Burgos lies in Castille province and is known for its UNESCO World Heritage-listed cathedral and old quarter. Somewhat off the beaten Spanish tourist trail, it is a stop on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route and gives a refreshing glimpse of Spanish life pre-package tours. Tiny Burgos Airport is a relatively new arrival, with regular flights to Barcelona, London and a handful of other European hubs.
Exploring this little-known region of Spain by hiring a motorhome is a fascinating experience that opens up the rural delights of traditional villages and unspoilt countryside. Major roads are kept in good condition, making driving a pleasure, and there’s a good choice of campsites in the region.

Recommended RV Hire drives in Burgos
Burgos – San Sebastian – Barcelona:
head north to the Basque coastal city of San Sebastian for an overnight stay at the Igueldo Campsite then take the A15 through Pamplona and Zaragoza to stunning Barcelona. Driving the Mediterranean coastline here is a great way to take in Spain’s varied topography. Camping Tres Estellas is 12kms from the city centre.
Basque Country tour:
a fascinating five-day drive around northern Spain’s mysterious, mountainous Basque sub-region is an unforgettable experience, taking in Bilbao, Vitoria- Gasteiz, Guernica and historic San Sebastian. Camping Sopelano near Bilbao and Campervanning Leagi in Lekeitio are recommended.
Burgos to Santiago de Compostela:
the A231 and A6 lead to Spain’s ultimate pilgrimage destination, the ancient city of Santiago de Compostela, a UNESCO–listed sight for its old quarter, breathtaking cathedral and medieval university. It is a five-hour drive away, with spectacular mountain views as you near Santiago, and As Cancelas and Monte do Gozo campervan sites are close to the town.
Located four kilometres from the city centre, the small Burgos Airport has only been open for commercial flights since 2008 and serves a single carrier, Air Nostrum, Iberia’s domestic low-cost subsidiary. Daily flights to Barcelona are offered along with less frequent flights to other European hubs including London and Paris. The complex holds a newly-built terminal and parking facilities.
Access to the city is straightforward by recreational vehicle hire as the junction of the N120 and A1 is just 650 metres from the terminal building. It is a 10-minute drive to Burgos’s central business district. Pre-book motorhome rental online so a vehicle is waiting for you at the airport on your arrival.
