Are you looking for road trip ideas in Europe? If so, keep reading!
If you’re planning a summer road trip adventure, there’s no better location for it than Europe. Europe has so many beautiful locations, and wonderful roads, it’s hard to choose just one!
Some of the best adventures you can have are in Europe (by car!) and you’ll be lucky enough to see some of the most beautiful towns, cities and views along the way.
Here are some of my favourites…
The Amalfi Coast
We visited the Amalfi Coast on our honeymoon, and it’s honestly one of the most breathtaking places in the world. The bright green hill and cliffs contrasted against the sparkling blue ocean, it’s magical.
Every few miles you stumble across another beautiful town of village, with pastel-coloured houses speckled along the coastline.
Some of the best beaches in Europe can be found here – so it’s worth checking out!
Umbria is a stunning area of Italy, that is perfect for road-tripping.
Unlike other parts of Italy, the roads aren’t too tricky here, as you’ll be driving in countryside, rather than coastline and cliff-side.
Umbria is full of castles, beautiful houses, wonderful villages and towns, you name it.
The Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse
This is a high alpine mountain pass that winds through the iconic Austrian Alps, and offers up some of the most incredible mountain and countryside views.
The winding roads are something from a story book or fairytale, and they just keep on coming.
Grossglockner, the black mountain, is the main event, and this route offer up some amazing photo opportunities.
The Trollstigen route in Norway
This stunning route in North Europe, is a one-lane road which has been carved from the lofty mountains all around it.
Norway is known for it’s huge landscapes and impressive outlooks, and this road gives you the ultimate way to see them.
Trollstigen offers some of the most unforgettable sights in the country of Norway, and every year people from across the globe flock there to drive on the famous road.
The Scottish Highlands
The Scottish highlands are an absolute must-visit for European roadtripping. The roads in Scotland are truly some of the best in the world.
You’ll get incredible sweeping views, amazing outlooks onto both mountains and the ocean, and historical stop-offs too!
Remember before road-tripping…!
- It’s important to always check your tyres and book a car service (check their pressure and also tread depth)
- Plan out your fuel stops
- Download your route (there might not be wifi on route)
- Take a blanket in the boot (in case you get stuck at night and need warmth)
- Take water and food supplies (you never know when you might need them!)
