The KOMBI Kaper 2018 will be to the colourful Balearic island of Ibiza!!

The trip will take place in August 2018.

The campsite we will stay at is http://campingescana.com/en/home-2/

Now this may seem a daunting trip, but it's not too complicated.  The journey consists of a 24hr ferry to Santander. A 7 hr drive east across to Valencia and then a 5 hr ferry to Ibiza. Once you're on the island it would only be about 30 mins to the campsite. I suspect we will stop overnight in Spain somewhere between Santander and Valencia on outbound and inbound legs.

If you're interested then reply below so you can be in the loop. I will organise the ferries and campsite. You just need to pack your BraziBay for an epic trip!! Cool

PS. Do consider that Ibiza is only a 2 hour flight from London, so it may suit your needs if your BraziBay is driven down by 1/2 of your party and the remainder join on the island. I know we have youngsters in the group plus others who may not like the ferry ride. All these things can be worked around.

I can make no promises with the way things are with Peaches at the moment.... but this is exactly the sort of adventure that appeals! Please keep me posted, Tim,
Kind Regards,
Pete.

Thanks all - yep understand about the school holidays. If folks can post what their respective holiday dates are, hopefully we can narrow it down to a suitable common period.

I'd love to make this.
Limiting the B&B here next year to peak times, so for me outside School summer holidays would be preferable.
You're never going to please all the people all the time, lol.
Also, need to look at temperature. Is it too hot there in mid summer? Maybe June half term could be an option for those bound to school holidays.

Anytime is good for us Tim. Morrison loves a ferry and we did the drive to Valencia this year. We stopped in some lovely campsites on the way out and back - here are some examples:

1) Arija - campsite on the edge of a reservoir. Good for first stop after you get off the ferry (about 80 miles). Facilities were first rate but the site itself was a bit forgotten by time. I cycled down to the reservoir early morning and swam. Not a soul in sight.
2) Ucero - not far from Soria - in the National Park called Cañon del Rio Lobos. Again lovely. It was nestled in a canyon and we had eagles flying over head.
3) Navajas - about 40 miles from Valencia - very well located with good facilities and a pool. All pitches were hardstanding stoney shingle which I am not a fan of. Did a day trip from here to Valencia on the local train.
4) Alcossebre - Plaja Tropicana - wonderful site. Next to a beach, lovely town - we are planning on going back there anyway next year. About 80 miles north of Valencia.
5) La Fresneda - probably the most picturesque beautiful site of our trip. Excellent facilities, Great bar and restaurant - only 30 or so pitches. But too many flies. Probably 150 miles north of Valencia. Lots of good cycling along disused rail tracks.
6) Castrojeriz - back towards Santander now - about 150 miles away from Santander. Lovely site not far from the Rioja region. The family who owned the site did oven cooked lamb shanks to order the day before. To die for!

So that's the journey to/from Valencia sorted!!!

We would love to go to Ibiza but would probably fly and go all inc . But no way we can get time off near or in the six weeks this is why we had to cancel this years trip to France

Definitely interested and not restricted by dates (at the moment). Where are you thinking of taking the ferry from? As we're based in Plymouth - we'd be looking at the Brittany ferry to Santander from Plymouth if possible

I expect that most of the group will prefer to go from Portsmouth to Bilbao because of reduced driving distances at each end and more sailings than from Plymouth. Having said that, we have taken different ferries from the rest of the group for the last 2 years, due to travelling from the North. It might be possible to arrange to meet up en route in Spain anyway, because anybody sailing into Santander will have to go via Bilbao to Valencia. Once we know who is planning to go and preferred dates we can take a look at the details.

Have had a quick look at next years schedules as I can only take a maximum of 2 weeks off work starting on a Monday!!

The Bilbao Ferries depart Portsmouth on Wednesday's and Sunday's and return to UK on Tuesday's and Thursday's. There is an economy ferry option which sails out on a Tuesday and back on a Wednesday but it's a longer crossing time with less facilities on board.

The Santander Ferries depart Portsmouth on Friday's and Tuesday's and return to UK Monday's and Saturday's.  Again there is an economy ferry which sails out on a Saturday and returns on a Sunday.

The Plymouth to Santander Ferry sails out on a Saturday and returns on a Wednesday.

Ok I've had confirmation from Camping Escana that they will take a group from our club!!

The only stipulations they have are that we book as individuals with them and that we all arrive on the same day.  Departures on differing days would not be a problem.  The prices for 2018 are being formulated now and will be online in the next couple of weeks.  Once live we can start looking at the costs and ferries.

Ibiza is going to love a visit from brazilianvwbay.com!!! Cool

Please state your interest if you haven't already done so - nothing to commit just yet, but unless you reply to this thread you won't get the latest. Basketball

It sounds fantastic Tim, but I'm afraid you can count us out. We will almost definitely have sold the van by then !!

But I will follow your adventures closely.
