Adventurous Driving Trails
Around The World

Discover five most interesting adventurous roads

Many drivers around the world have their own everyday notions, but they are truly put to the test when driving on a great, adventurous road. That is when the familiar, dull grin of daily commuting is replaced with grand landscape, terrain and turns that adjust their perception of the world. Above all, driving on adventurous trails can be thrilling.

Highway 1 (California, USA)

The ragged central California coastline can be chased while driving down Highway 1 through Big Sur, which runs up to the city of Carmel. This trail is well-known for its perilous cliffs with astounding views over them, where the whitecaps of the Pacific Ocean are revealed while rushing past huge dark rocks. During peak traffic hours, the pace is often dampened by lumbering motorhomes and rental cars, so taking a detour through Nacimiento-Fergusson Road is recommended.

Nurburgring Nordschleife (Germany)

It can be argued that Nurburgring Nordschleife is the world's most infamous racetrack, but this loop of tarmac that stretches up to 12.93 miles is also a toll road. This means that on non-race days, any adventurous driver can drive on it as long as they are willing to pay the 24 Euros toll. The Nurburgring has also been dubbed "the green hell" by Jackie Stewart, a former Formula One racer. Treacherous landmarks are also featured there, such as the Caracciola Karussell and Flugplatz. This trail has 154 nasty turns that must be kept in mind when driving there.

If you're driving through Argentina,
you will encounter some desolate places along the road.

Ruta 40 (Argentina)

Ruta 40 in Argentina is among the world's longest stretches of highway. It passes through the Andes mountain range, connecting countless passes to 20 different national parks. Since this trail is 3000 miles long, there may not be enough time for the entire span, so the southern portion of the highway should be bypassed since it is always clogged with tourists. Instead, the gorgeous and upper elevations of Ruta 40 are worth exploring, especially since it is possible to reach a height of 16,000 feet above sea level there.

Conor Pass (Ireland)

Despite being an island, Ireland is great for driving, as long as drives remain on the left side of the road, and the Conor Pass is the most sought out trail in Ireland since it offers a great Emerald Isle drive. From Dingle Peninsula, it runs in the northern direction toward Brandon Bay. This trail is actually a narrow road that twists and turns through grassy, green vistas, and offers views of mesmerizing lakes that are below.

On your road adventures be mindful of driving on the left side of the road
in some parts of the world, such as the UK and Australia.

Great Ocean Road (Australia)

This road, which is tucked away in Australia in the Southern Hemisphere, is a gentler and kinder version of the Highway 1 in California. While driving down the Great Ocean Road, various striking natural rock formations are passed by, including Loch Ard Gorge and the Twelve Apostles. This coastal thruway, which is 151 miles long, is ideal for both adventurous and relaxed drivers who just want to cruise down an exotic trail under the clear skies.

Every country in the seven continents of the world has its own fair share of adventurous driving trails that offer an opportunity for the ultimate road trip. Europe is also one such continent, which is just one more reason to take a practical driving test and head out on an adventurous road trip.
