Hi all

Any recommendations on destinations for a four day road trip?

I want to take my ‘new’ C4S on a decent trip, as I have done on each of the past five summers. Normally head down to the south of France and spend a day on the Route Napoleon and build in some other great roads on the same trip.

Wondering if anyone had any other ideas.

Cheers!

Drive to Scotland get the ferry from Cairnryan over to Northern Ireland then drive around the coast of Ireland starting on the coast at larne it's totally stunning loads of places to stop and see giant/s causeway being a must, free parking most the way round and the traffic is good just watch out for the bikers.

Could do Stuttgart for the Porsche and Mercedes museums - myself and a mate did it in Sept over 4 days from Northumberland through the tunnel. Also would second the N Ireland suggestion - I'm originally from the North Antrim coast and its a great drive.

Cheers...….Ian

Thanks all!

Have done bits of Germany, Switzerland and France but not Austria - I’m interested - does anyone have any particular routes to recommend?

Cheers

Silvretta, Postalmstrasse, Rossfeldstrasse and Grossglockner are four that spring to mind, stunning locations.

My Sig pic below is Silvretta.

Can recommend Silvretta and Glossglockner, but be aware that they are toll roads.

So are Postalm and Rossfeld but worth it IMO. I don't remember Silvretta being toll but it may have been?

Austria in 4 days is possible but it's a long way there/back.
Have you been to the Vosges in France? Most people completely miss it but I always highly recommend the area - stunning roads & fab hotels.
Perhaps combine it Luxembourg, which is another of my favourite and usually overlooked areas, and you've got a great tour.
Neither of the above have the famous named passes of the Alps but both will tick the box of great driving roads.
Drop me an email if you need more info.
Wink

Cheers,
L'rs

Just back from the Riviera, via Switzerland and Baden Baden. Swiss passes hard to beat and doable, I reckon.

This is good to go for the trip to spend vacations. The best place to go for the trip is the adventurous places. Spending time with nature is always best it makes your relaxed and tension free.

Thanks Rikki. I didn't know you got a ticket while you were there...

A few days ago I sent you an email about next year's trip in case you wanted to join us again but it bounced back. Let me know if you want to have another go on those "beautiful, deserted and epic roads" Wink

Cheers,
