If we add to this that on many occasions renting a car with time can mean paying up to half of the usual price, car trips can be much cheaper than it may initially seem. There are many suitable countries to travel by car, we have made a selection of what we think are the 10 best car trips.
Iceland is undoubtedly one of the best trips by car or motorhome in the world. If you have a couple of weeks you can complete a circular route to the island, without practically abandoning the famous Highway 1 since around it there are the most tourist attractions of the island. In Iceland it is possible to enjoy landscapes that look like another planet, glaciers, waterfalls adorned with rainbows, volcanoes, black sand beaches or glacial lagoons, from the car and we can assure you that driving in the Land of Ice and Fire It is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have on your trips. To make routes through the interior of the island, it is best to rent a 4 × 4 and to stay, it is best to book in advance, since there is not much quantity and those that are sold out quickly, especially in high season, which includes the months of July-August and part of September.
Although we have always thought that Italy is a perfect country to travel by road, there are several areas of the country that we believe, especially worthwhile to make a route by car. And despite being difficult to keep only one, if we have to choose, the selected one would be La Toscana, one of the trips we have enjoyed the most and which we would repeat without hesitation. See its cornfields and vineyards, medieval villages and cities such as Lucca, Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena ..., being able to stop anywhere to taste its cuisine in one of its many restaurants, make Tuscany one of our favorite places in the world . The best and most economical way to get to this area is to take a low cost flight to Pisa, where in the same airport you can rent a car and in about two hours be in Siena, the heart of Tuscany, from where you can start to trace the route through the area, making base in some city that you like or deciding on the fly, where to stay to sleep.
