We are Colin and Liam, and we are Atlantic Drift.
We go back years and have always had a love of the outdoors and travel. This has naturally led us to Atlantic Drift... ‘Why?’ you may ask. Simple really, we are too old for camping but still love to get out there. So when Colin and Emer (Colin's understanding wife) got a camper, we began rediscovering the remote and secluded surf breaks, the beautiful beaches and the majestic mountains of the west of Ireland, it was easy to convince Liam to get on board.
Now we want to share this beauty with everyone and help them discover what it’s like to wake up to the sound of the surf lapping on the beach beside you or see the sunset over the mountains.
So naturally we set about creating the perfect small manageable and environmentally friendly campers. And the VW van is the perfect base from which to do this. We find pre-loved VW’s and bring them back to life kitting them out with the best facilities and latest technology to bring you a friend you’ll want to share your holiday with.
We are lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of the world and do everything we can to keep it that way. With that in mind we have been very conscious of our impact on the world around us. From the little things like leaving nothing but footprints and taking nothing but memories…(clichéd we know but still important) to the big things like choosing the VW Carravelle as the base for our campers.
We could choose to convert new vans but instead we source VWs that have already put in years of good honest graft and fully refurbish these work horses such that the Carbon Footprint of our campervans is a fraction of that of a new van…if you don’t believe us check out this article by our learned friends at The Guardian.
So when you look at a Atlantic Drift Camper, smile and remember how much kinder they are to the environment than a campervan straight off the production line.
