Verdon Gorge circuit, France
Provance is o e of the most attractive destinations in France. You’ll be happy to hear that there’s a route that lets you experience it at its finest. The Verdon Gorge circuit starts in one of the tiny market towns and goes through natural grandeur you won’t find anywhere else on the planet. The route rises gently as you start but soon enough, it begins to rise sharply to villages built for defence. Just taking a look at the vaulted streets will tell you enough about the past of these little towns. Even higher are the famous Verdon gorges. With 2,000ft drops directly down, it doesn’t come as a surprise that many consider these gorges to offer the Europe’s most dramatic driving. You may travel by car but be ready to rent a boat or canoe to discover everything Verdon Gorge circuit has to offer.
Historic Columbia River Highway, USA
If you’re looking for the perfect route in the USA, look no further than the Historic Columbia River Highway in Oregon. This 23-miles long route is the oldest in the country, being built in 1917. Today, it’s considered a national historic landmark and it puts on display some of the most astonishing views you can witness by car. Cliffs covered with foliage and long waterfalls are just some of the things you’ll never forget. This is an ideal route for large families traveling in full-sized vehicles.

The Savannah Way, Australia
For those looking for an exciting drive in Australia, the Savannah Way is the perfect option. The route encompasses fifteen national parks and offers some of the most breathtaking views in the entire country. What’ even better is that you’ll get to see absolutely everything. Whether you want to see tropical rainforests or beaches with turquoise water, this is the place to be. The route may not be the easiest one to take, so make sure your vehicle can take it before you hit the road. This includes investing in quality parts such as K&N filters and other parts. Also, it’s a good idea to bring an extra set of belts in case yours break. We recommend bringing a radio as you may not be able to get reception in some parts of the route.
Kruger National Park, South Africa
There’s no point in talking about road trips without mentioning some of the world’s best safaris. For this occasion, we opted for the Kruger National Park in South Africa as many view it as the best open drive in the entire continent. What separates it from other safaris is that all roads in the national park are smooth, taking the entire experience to the next level. This means you can even choose to travel in small cars such as Sedan. If you think you didn’t see enough on your road trip, you can even park your four-wheeler and book a night drive. Once you reach the Golden Gate Highlands, you’ll see what it is that makes this place so special. Among other fauna, you’ll see the “big five” – lions, leopards, buffalo, elephants and rhino.
Each of these four routes guarantees a lot of fun and some of the most amazing views you’ll ever witness. No matter which one you opt for, you’ll be in for a lot of fun. Prepare your vehicle, get your road map, and hit the road as soon as things go back to normal.
