Stays at the Truck Surf Hotel currently start from just GBP437 a week.

The hotel on wheels has an innovative hydraulic system that enables the walls and ceiling to expand upwards and outwards once parked.

Carneiro, formerly an environmental engineer and surf photographer, and Ribeiro, an award-winning surfer from Espinho, say they’re thrilled with how their project turned out.

Together with a company that specializes on mobile homes, they transformed the heavy-duty truck into a movable hotel that they live in full-time while driving their guests around Portugal and Morocco.

Revealing what inspired their design they said: ‘We have been travelling for many years in a camper van through Europe and Africa, exploring different cultures, surf spots, making new friends, with the freedom to live each adventure as one.

‘We wanted to create something different to share this lifestyle and offer people the flexibility to travel with comfort and the best outdoor experiences.

‘So, we created the Truck Surf Hotel that gives the opportunity to explore uncrowded surf spots with the best waves, different natural parks and mountains, live different cultures with a luxurious hotel on wheels that goes everywhere.

‘Our commitment to the local culture and environment spreads with us to our destinations.’
