"The Lumleys Big Adventure"
CamperVanTastic was started in 2007 but the journey began way back in 2006 when Steve took full advantage of his redundacy and turned this in to an opportunity and bought their first VW California campervan. What followed was an adventure that was to build and form ideas and the inspiration grew as our founders Steve and Kate Lumley grew the idea of a new hire company hiring our modern factory built campervans. Both experienced and seasoned travellers they have backpacked, camped, and travelled extensively across Europe, India, Africa. Steve has also trekked across the mountains of Nepal and though the wilderness and glaciers of Alaska raising much needed funds for Sense the UK's Deafblind and Rubella Charity and climbing Africa's highest mountian Mount Kilimanjaro for Water Aid. It was following their amazing adventure in 2007, with their two small children, that they rediscovered their love of Europe and Campervanning, not to mention their relationship with their first VW Califorina campervan!

Together with the assistance of their "Vantastic" crew they bring you a wealth of practical experience and an alternative way to travel, where you take control of when and where to go in the comfort of a well equipped campervan.
