Thanks to the EU, the ultimate European road trip adventure is far more easy to execute. But move over the casual and look for alternative and fun itineraries that match your interests to make the most of the drive.
An interactive guide from comparethemarket details ‘The Greatest European Road Trips’ and helps you to plan for your next trip. Creatively crafted, the guide is ruled by visuals and the itineraries are split on the basis of; where, how much and why. The guide gives almost custom-made ideas to suit the length of the trip and the countries you may wish to explore. It is also good for beginners, or those starting without any preferences.
We skimmed through 15 of the best road trips you can take around Europe, while allowing you to choose your type of route (romantic, family, coastal etc) and the length, so you can plan your next adventure with ease and pick some of our favourites.
Fire and Ice
Iceland is indeed afar but amidst the natural landscape, this is one of the most beautiful road trips that Europe has to offer. Sock in views of the volcanoes, glaciers, waterfalls and even the northern lights. There’s no ring road quite like it…
Shores of Sardinia
Sardinia is home to some of Italy’s best beaches and a week-long road trip around the island’s coast can be a good way to unwind, while still getting your fix of travel and culture, for those looking for a wholesome break.
The Black Forest
Instinctively German, The Black Forest is the stuff of fairy tales, and one of Germany’s widely popular regions. The sweeping, picture-perfect hills are ideal for driving, with lots of pretty and historic towns and villages to visit along the way.
To make it all a little easier, each trip lists the stops, nearest ferry/airport, the best time to drive and the miles you’ll be covering, so all you need to do is jet, set, vroom!
