The best driving tours in Europe
Ring of Kerry, Ireland
The Ring of Kerry is justly famous: this driving route encircling Ireland’s Iveragh peninsula takes in some of the island’s most remarkable landscapes. The splendid scenery of the Killarney National Park, with its lakes and green uplands, opens and closes the drive; and the Macgillicuddy’s Reeks mountain range looms over the area.
Route Napoleon, France
Following the route taken by Napoleon Bonaparte when he traveled from Elba to Grenoble, Route Napoleon runs through the French Alps. Scenic views abound, as this famed road allows drivers to take a step back in time in rural France. Connect with this historic region on your European road trip.
The Troll Path, Norway
Nestled deep in the snow-covered mountains of the western coast of Norway, the Trollstigen is a vast stretch of road zig-zagging across the Unesco-protected Geirangerfjord region.
The best drive destinations across Europe
Athens to Olympia, Greece
While Greece’s islands usually hog the vacation spotlight, the mainland is the perfect place for countryside cruising. Start in Athens to explore the ruins (Acropolis, Parthenon, the Temple of Hephaestus, etc.) before hitting the road to the Laconia countryside.
Blue Lagoon, Iceland
The Blue Lagoon is one piping-hot experience to have on your first trip to Iceland, especially on a cold winter day.
Pembrokeshire National Coastal Park, Wales
Pembrokeshire National Coastal Park houses one of the most beautiful coastlines in all of the UK. Make sure to visit some of the pretty Welsh towns that surround this gorgeous region, too.
