Nothing could be more symbolic of the life journey you’ve embarked on together than enjoying your own road trip adventure instead of a traditional honeymoon. So buckle up and get ready to burn some rubber as we take a closer look at three of the world’s best romantic road trips.
Ring Road, Iceland
An opportunity to take a jaunt around Iceland’s main circular route is not to be passed up. Go in the summer to see imposing volcanoes and mountains, crystal clear rivers and streams, and amazing waterfalls and rock formations; go in the winter and see the same sights in nature’s beautiful but icy grip.
Be aware that there can be a fair amount of difficult driving if you want to reach the country’s hidden wonders —just don’t forget a basic safety kit of an ice scraper, trowel, and mobile phone loaded with emergency numbers, which, according to this guide from Lookers, is essential packing.
Trans-Andean Highway, Chile to Argentina
If you are a couple in search of true adventure, a trip across South America’s Trans-Andean Highway is sure to offer up a lifetime of memories.
From heart-stopping mountain passes with views to die for to the glorious descent into Argentina’s wine country, this is a road trip for those who want to get truly lost. The Rough Guide to South America on a Budget is full of money-saving advice and is essential reading if you plan on extending your trip.
Route 66, USA
What kind of round-up would this be without the world’s most famous road trip? Route 66 is a 2,448-mile monster that snakes its way across the USA from Illinois to California — perfect if you are looking to take a leisurely driving holiday.
You’ll see almost every side of America on your journey, from romantic small towns to the bluster of the big cities, all in the tradition of many adventure-seeking honeymooners before you. Driving Route 66 has a handy resource of interactive maps to help you plan your epic trip.
Keep these three road-trips in mind when you plan your honeymoon and you could both enjoy the adventure of a lifetime!
