Self-drive holiday inspiration
Hit the open road on a self-drive through some of the world’s most staggering scenery. Exploring the planet on your own four wheels gives you the freedom to set your own pace, stop for scenic breaks and jump out to take snaps. Drive from the crumbling colonial facades of Havana to tobacco hills and castaway beaches in Cuba, travel the northeastern fishing-village filled coast of Brazil, or take an outback drive through the Andes in Argentina. From winding through the snow-capped Rocky Mountains of Canada to zig-zagging volcanic valleys in Chile, you’re in for the drive of your life. Fasten your seatbelt and get ready to go.
Road tripping across Canada
Take to the open roads of Canada with stunning scenery at every turn and wildlife dotted highways – yep you heard right – mind that bear! Canada is a road-tripper’s delight with its long, wide and (mostly) empty highways stretching for miles on end lined with rugged mountains, luscious forests and emerald lakes. Every twist and turn is another photo opportunity that beats the last.
Fishing villages in Brazil
Take a road trip down the north-east coast of Brazil, visiting historic towns, fishing villages and breathtaking beaches. Driving down the coast in your own time, you’ll see unspoiled beaches as you drive down the famously picturesque Linha Verde route.
Take the road to revolution in Cuba
Follow the revolutionary road across Cuba, a tropical island with a fascinating culture, rolling tobacco hills and shady colonial plazas. Drive into the mountains of the Sierra Maestra to get a glimpse of Che’s headquarters, follow the coastline to castaway beaches on the azure Caribbean and dance salsa with the locals on the church steps of Trinidad. Driving through Cuba, you can watch daily life slowly unfold around you.
Try a road trip through Costa Rica
Hit the road on a self drive Costa Rica adventure and get up close to this diverse destination. Cruise out of the city and explore volcanoes, jungles and deserted beaches along the Pacific coast. A self drive holiday gives you the freedom to travel at your own pace and the option to stop off whenever and wherever you want. Complete with satnav and wifi, your 4×4 will make driving in Costa Rica easy as pie.
Zig-zag through volcano valleys in Chile
Take the twisting backroads across the Chilean lake district, driving through volcano-studded valleys over six days. Stay in local guesthouses with staggering volcano views, hike on hardened lava and gaze up at vast, dusty craters. You’ll follow scenic roads past shimmering mountain lakes, ancient forests and snow-capped volcanoes curling tendrils of smoke into blue skies.
Take a drive on the wild side in Argentina
Drive between endless vineyards, cruise through rocky canyons and cross plains peppered with giant cactus plants in Argentina’s outback. Dodge nandoos (small ostriches) crossing the road and head for clifftops to watch hundreds of elephant seals basking in the sun. On your way back, pass penguin colonies and sealions as you explore Patagonia at your own pace.
