There is nothing better than packing the car with your favourite people and favourite snacks, and heading off on an adventure. Here are some of the most beautiful, exhilarating road trips in the world, in no particular order!
The Wild Atlantic Way - West Coast Of Ireland
At a staggering 2,500km, the Wild Atlantic Way is not only one of the most beautiful road trips in the world, it's also the longest! Taking anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks, this trip will show you enormous sea cliffs, gorgeous beaches and fantastic culture. Make sure to check out Donegal headlands, Slieve League coast and Yeats Country for the poets amongst you!
The Ring Road - Iceland
Having done snippets of this one myself, I can tell you it is not to be missed! The sheer size of the famous waterfalls, like Gulfoss, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss will have you astounded, not to mention the wild Icelandic countryside. You can tailor the trip to last anywhere from a few days to 2 weeks. Amazing.
Cabot Trail - Canada
This stunning trail is packed with activities come rain or shine. In the winter months, you can snowmobile or take part in cross-country skiing and there is horseback riding and whale watching in the warmer months. Not to mention the unbelievable coastal hikes and old-growth forests to explore. Who has the car keys??
North Coast 500 - Scotland
If you live in the UK, you don't have to travel very far to see some beautiful scenery on a road trip. Bonny Scotland is home to the North Coast 500, where you'll see historic castles, coastal walks, scattered whiskey distilleries as well as the chance to see the Northern Lights! I'll pack the car.
South Island - New Zealand
Much further afield, exploring the South Island in New Zealand will have you trekking varying landscapes from mountains to sprawling countryside. It takes about 4 weeks to travel around the whole island and there are places not to be missed, such as Marlborough Sounds, Abel Tasman National Park and Golden Bay, Lake Tekapo and Mount Cook (worth a Google at the very least!)
